    Nope. And anything is better than scouse or brum.

    With the revamped CUK forum format, the honey-coloured sticky threads now look mellifluous, sort of.

    I agree about southern accents, and I think the quacky ones are from Brooklyn and have spread for some strange reason.

    Squawky American accents

    Has anyone noticed how squawky American accents are these days?

    It may sound intolerably sexist, but the women generally sound far more squawky and quacky than guys, who mostly sound relatively OK.

    I predict that in 50 years, American womens' speech will evolve to sound like short bursts of fast forwarding on an analog tape recorder!
