Reblogged from Channel 25 Boston

Language learning platform Preply says it recently surveyed 1,000 Americans to find out which accents are viewed as the best, worst, sexiest, smartest sounding, and also most annoying.

Prebly noted that here are more than 7,100 languages spoken around the world and more than 30 dialects in the United States alone. With that said, Boston faired impressively, ranking inside the top 10 in all categories included in the survey.

The Boston accent had the following rankings:

  • #4 for smartest sounding
  • #1 for most annoying
  • #6 for the accent Americans like the most
  • #8 for most trustworthy accent
  • #8 for sexiest American accent

The Southern accent tied with Boston for the most annoying sounding accent in the country.

The Northeastern accent topped the category of smartest sounding accents.
