Hi,

What accents do you like to hear most and why?

And if your first language is not English- What accent do you like to hear your language spoken in?

Icelandic isn't spoken by enough people for it to have accents. So there is really just the one Icelandic accent.

I love Irish accents - especially since there are aparently about 2,000 different accents for the one island alone. And people can tell what TOWN someone comes from by their accent!

And psst... Reece has a New Zealand accent! It's true! ;)

I have these postings read through and I found it's interesting people are growing much interest and affection in celtic accents. Does the subtle sounds made from them seem to be so captivating?
