What is it about the stereotypical British accent?

Do foreign girls love it, as is so often shown in the media?

If so, WHY???

I suppose I have a Queen's-English, rather depressingly. I can imitate other accents, but not well enough to pass for a native, so I'm stuck sounding posh

Cheers,

Chaz

Screw that. Everyone knows the hottest is the Shropshire accent, with our complete lack of the letters T and N in the middle of words, and babies being called 'babbies'.

When people from other countries impersonate us; it's either the Cockney accent, or Posh accent. I hate that.

Your name is Chaz.

You are not posh.

Short for Charles

Just because I don't have a posh name don't mean I don't sound it. Which is irritating, because I live in rural Derbyshire

I've always liked the Liverpool accent myself, but then again I'm from Florida so what the hell do I know.

The Nottingham accent just completely throws people not from around here, especially some of the broader north nott's accents.

The almost complete ommision of H's and the massive use of glottal stops instead of t's is only the start of it. So many random stresses, and the habit of some women starting there sentences at alarming speed only to finish by continuing the last vowel seemingly forever.

The British accent (English, even) is very varied. Like I would sound absolutely nothing like you, and you'd probably have a hard time understanding my accent.

I think that ameican accents, although annoying, are generally much more cheerful/optimistic sounding than our dull British ones. Seriously some northern accents are soooo depressing

Don't diss.

The northern accent is a thing of great beauty and elegance.

chicks in America will dig it until they get to know you. After the initial period of shock that someone speaks differently (people are not used to that accent here) they'll judge you by your personality.
i.e. if you're a good guy, they'll keep talking to you
if you are a total bastard, they **** you

American chicks are wierd.

I like the boston/rhode island accent of peter griffin.

english accents, I quite like the southern accents, I spent a year down there and made alot of cool friends.

Can't beat Scottish and Irish accents tho. We have win in our vocal chords.

Personally, I find most British accents annoying :s But I absolutely hate Buffalonian (???) people's accents, they sound half-retarded.

Yeh, that and the Irish accent are the best in the world id say.

I hate it, I've got a queen's English accent and I always will have. I sound like a pompous bastard.

At least I don't have an American accent. No offense intended, but American accents make me want to slaughter kittens. American tourists always speak far too loud and their godforsaken accents seem to pierce through the air. They're so harsh it hurts me.

Australian accents, Irish accents and Scottish accents are awesome.

no accent is worse than the american midwestern accent. it simultaneously makes me want to cry, vomit, and shove bananas in my ears.

god, i hate the midwest.

I absolutely love Scottish accents. I've got a Scottish teacher for IT and everytime he speaks to me I laugh because it is so awesome.

As for me, I'm stuck with a typical Notts accents. More or less exactly how rizo described it.

Most New Yorkers don't actually talk like that... I'm sure there are some other New Yorkers here who can vouch for that.
