I'm a fan of the Eastern European accents - Romanian, Czech, Ukrainian, Russian (at least in women. In men I don't care). They're deeper, throatier and more senual than the higher-pitched accents.

As a Brit I'm curious, what exactly do people mean when they say a British accent? I mean, that includes England, Scotland, and Wales, and that's not even getting down to the various accents within those countries. Do you just mean the posh, more educated kind from London?

Usually when people say British accents, they're referring to English accents.

But even then English accents are pretty broad when it comes down to regional stuff. For example, a Yorkshire accent sounds different from a Manchester accent, or a cockney one. Heck, over here in Yorkshire the East, West, and maybe the North, all have their own variations as well. Britain is known for having a very high amount of accent variation in a very small amount of space, so even saying English doesn't really narrow it down that much.

To be honest, I don't think most people realize that. Although if you want an exact accent, most people are referring to the southern/London accents.

I mean, I guess London, at least the more educated-sounding kind, makes sense since it's probably the most commonly referenced in fiction and the like. Ah well, that's all I was curious about. It's just I know whenever accents are brought up I hear a 'British' accent mentioned a lot, but it always feels as broad as saying a 'U.S.A' accent :p
