The American Accent

Jump to last reply

I love the British accent, and
judging by the number of Brits on
American infomercials, other
Americans do as well. But I've
often wondered what our American
accent sounds like to English
speaking Europeans, especially the
British. I mentioned this to a young
British woman whom I met in Holland
last week, and she said rather bluntly
that the English do not like our accent,
though she really couldn't articulate
why.

If you're British, or an English-
speaking non-American, how would you
describe our accent?

Happy travels,

Gerry K
