    Attractive and Ugly American Accents

    Which American accents do you think are the ugliest and which ones seems most attractive to you. I like East Coast accent but would like to hear from Others about which accents they like.

    I'm a sucker for a Texan accent. The only accent I don't like much is the "valley girl" accent in California.

    I really love the Texan drawl too. It sounds so good to me. I don't know...it sounds so rhythmic. I really like it a lot. Although I don't like the racism that's down there.

    I have a soft spot for a slight Bostonian/New England accent in a woman, but a lot of that is because I have a very lovely history with it

    Texas is an extremely large state and I don't think it's fair to make such a broadly sweeping statement about people being racists there. Texas is a great place to visit and a great place to live!

    I like the New York and New Jersey accents for females. I'm also found of southern accents for females. What I don't like (and I'm not sure if you can consider this an accent) is what they call high rising terminal, that's when most sentences end with an upward inflection, as if perpetually asking a question even when the sentence is not interrogative.

    I never really thought about it to be honest I don't really know the West Coast accents well since I am on the East Coast. I do like New York City accents as there is just something totally different about it. I can't think of another state that has anything like the NYC accent and attitude. The south has a pretty cool accent too. I have heard many people say they like NJ accent, but I am from NJ and I can't tell how different we sound.

    I'm a fan of southern accents. I love the drawls. I'm not however a fan of my fellow Mainers accents and the Midwestern ones tend to grate on my nerves.

    I’m not an American, but I’m drawn to the southern accents. Maybe it’s because of all those old western movies I watched too much as a kid. I even cheer on any southern participant on American Idol!

    I was born in Texas, but I wasn't raised there I must admit I like the accent tho :P It's so easy to understand what a texan is saying, but I get completely lost when I talk with a new yorker! Sometimes they talk too fast and is really easy to miss some words. I used to work as a transcriptionist a while ago, and the new york accent always gave me a lot trouble; I had to double check my transcriptions while listening to the audio all over again! So yeah... the accent from new york is not my favorite one!

    I love the way Californians and many west coasters talk, it's hard to pin down exactly but the right subtle accent there is wonderful. I'm not a big fan of overly exaggerated Southern drawls.

    I think the southern accent is beautiful in its own way, and has a certain appeal to it to most people. I wouldn't say it's ugly, but the Minnesota/Dakotas accent is just kind of silly (if you're ever seen the movie Fargo, you know what I mean).
