Is it true that American's like the "British" accent?

By British accent, I mean the stereotypical British accent because there are actually over 50 different accents with around 5-10 local variations in each one.

An accent like this (not jimmys :P). It's typically called the RP accent and is mainly found in the far south of England.

  • I personally don't like American accents, mostly because I feel like American think that they're better then everyone else. British accents however are super attractive, Emmy exes cockney accent was phenomenal. I'm an not British however I sometimes have a English accent when I speak probably because I have many British friends with whom is speak English with. Australia accents come close 2nd

  • I think that it's an exaggeration for the main part. Some do, some don't. Some just like to hear something different because it brings the excitement of foreign shores. Just as an English guy might find a Spanish accent on a girl to be hot. I don't believe that American girls are all lining up for British accents at all. Besides which, once the British guy smiles they'll see that his teeth are shitty and the accent will no longer work.

    • Sounds fine to me if I can understand most of what you're saying LMAO

    • I can't understand some Scottish accents to be honest haha

  • There are different accents and slang terms in America too. There's Southern, Bostonian, Latino (I consider it American because some American territories were originally Mexican). British accents are just like any other accent to me.. the appeal will have more to do with their voice.

  • Do they? I always wonder why so many American movies use British, more specifically English accents for their antagonists so often. Hiddleston himself being an example.

    • (I'm not American tho xD)

    • What do you like about it? It just seems like normal spesking to me :P

    • Haha xD we all view how we talk as normal, even when others find it attractive to listen to lol.
      Well, I don't know, I just find it nice. When they've got a really heavy accent its not as nice since it's difficult to understand haha. But I really like it. And since I've lived in the UK as a child and I've had a great time there, I just love everything about England, accents included lol

  • Technically that accent is called RP which stands for reciprocal pronunciation. It's also known as the Queens English or Posh British. 3% of the population speak it and they also speak it on the BBC. My personal favorite is cockney.

    • I know it's RP, I said that in my question and RP is "Received Pronunciation", I'm one of the estimated 3% and I said that in my question

    • Whenever we lose a game I always think to myself "could be worse, could support Portsmouth" :P and at least you didn't go from BPL to league 1 in 2 seasons like we did haha, we even started in league 1 with -10 points haha

    • Plus you can always you-tube Matt le Tissier highlights after a bad game

  • Won't be true for all Americans, but in my experience, yes, definitely.

    It's an ice breaker, and the women seem to love it.
