I have a Salvadoran with Texas blend accent.

My favorite accents are on the American West coast and American South in English.

In Spanish I melt over Spanish (from Spain) and Salvadoran accents.

It is a toss between Campagnan (a town in Italy), and Barcelonan when speaking Occitan.

Worst accent was a friend who was raised in the north of Scotland and moved to Jamaica. I could not understand a word he said even when he was...um nonindulgent.

Hmm Charleston South Carolina, the elevated version a la Frank Underwood. The Mid-Atlantic accent, Scouse and Brandenburg accents speaking English. My own stuffy RP isn't too hard on the ears either.

Also Anarcho-Alcoholism ;)

This may be a surprise to no one given what my nation is based on, but I am a fan of the southern Appalachian dialect. It's unique among English dialects, has its own vocabulary and verbiage, and older folks especially who use it have a poetry to their way of speaking.

I'm originally from Cleveland, Ohio. I never thought of myself as having an 'accent' (they say Midwest = standard American) until a theatre director I was working for pointed out that I pronounce all my vowel sounds the same when I talk. My grandparents have thick Middle Eastern accents but I never picked much up for them.

My cousin is interesting as far as accents. His mother (my aunt) is from Cleveland, his father is from Boston. He lived in Boston until he was 4 before they moved to North Carolina. He's now 10. So he pronounces some words in a Midwest accent, some words with a distinct Boston accent, and a couple words in a Southern accent.

I love the Afrikaans language and the Afrikaner accent in English. Now I'm usually good at understanding even heavy accents - never really had communication issues when I visited Jamaica or did a study trip to Scotland, but I've never had a harder time understanding anyone than I did my friend's Afrikaner parents when I met them.

Upper class English, like the accent of The Honourable Jacob Rees-Mogg MP. Don't ask me why, I just love it...

The South-African accent for English is cool, I find.
