brown with green spots, bright green and orange with beige spots are the worst areas when it comes to dialects
When they switch into highest gear, we can't understand them at all.
The one from Canary Island. Their accent sounds southamerican so when they want to rent a house in mainland Spain they have to go in person, otherwise nobody would rent them anything.
Tbh with the exception of bogan and Abo accents, most of them sound fairly similar to us. The only other one I can even pick out is sometimes I'll be able to tell people from Lelbourne apart from other people.
What does an American accent sound like in other languages?
We barely have natural dialects besides standard (northern, I guess), southern (from slight twang to cowboy-tier), and a few much more localized patterns (boston, brooklyn, NJ [some of you are alright, don't go to GTL tomorrow]). The rest are foreign accents like Mexican (fine if it's moderate but heavy Mexican accent annoys the hell out of me), niggas (not blacks, it's just the niggas), assorted asian accents, and every once in a while you'll get something different like an Indian or Paki or anything in Europe.
I don't think we have a "most annoying" accent. (Jersey Shore wannabe Itai comes close) As long as the person with the accent doesn't speak like a poor uneducated mongoloid then they're passable. Irish is up there with one of the hottest accents in the English range, though.
Is murcian really the worst? learning spanish at the moment and was having a little trouble in murcia because they have a lot of different words for things that what i had learned.
the easiest spanish accent to understand in my opinion is mexican.
We have bogan, wog (similar to how Italian Americans and other ethnics from NY sometimes sound, Action Bronson being an example), rural (although this subtle) and Abo.
Everyone else pretty much sounds the same, and the only regional variation I can think of the South Australians who sometimes have a slightly English inflection, although it's not really noticeable.
I've heard this about 30% of languages talking about other languages. Is it just poor tongue control and articulation? I think Americans have the worst tongue control of any Romance or Germanic language.

Oh damn I forgot about Californian. It's basically a lazier version of our already pretty lazy standard accent. Surfer-dude accent died, I think, never heard anyone with it. Must have merged with regular and formed Cali accents.

It was two 8 year old Aussie boys being dickheads, not exactly an in-depth linguistics study.
Although now that you mention it, you do sound different to other Americans.
>"Ey Joey, dis guy, dis guy right here. He's got some oogatz, let tell ya. Dis guy, dis guy right here. Ey.. Ohw!"
I know but we stole a ton of shit from the Romance languages so I included it anyway.
NY isn't that bad as long as it isn't Brooklyn, if it's heavy enough then it's near impossible to understand. Cali slurs things a little more than other states but it's hard to tell when I have it myself and never talk to people outside the state. Was it standard Cali laziness or full on valley girl?
Yorkie as in a 70 year old brit from Yorkshire that a Cam lass could barely understand.
>Was it standard Cali laziness or full on valley girl?
I'm not really sure, they had a lot of that vocal fry, so I'm guessing valley girl. Bit nasal too.
not really. most chavs are the "WOT U FOOKIN LOOKIN AT MATE" type
Also, should add that everywhere in northern england, unlike other english accents cut ryhmes with foot, and hook rhymes with fuck etc, etc.
That's a pity. Bogans are hilarious because aside from having no class, they're like a walking stage production. They put on this big song and dance and act like nobody else is even watching. It's tops.
I believe it has more to do with the existing sounds in American english than any specific failure of skill.
The accent shines through often and the clipped Ts that become glottal stops, and our vowels end up sounding a bit potato-y when we speak rapidly in a second language. Speaking carefully, I don't think I sound much like a potato, but, then again, I speak potato-dialect swedish with potato-language as my mother tongue, soooo...
What was I saying again?
Oh yeah, accent, not "skill".
American english sounds a certain way, that's all.
