Hmm - I suppose I'm just boring English, no particular accent as I came from Kent. Can't even claim to anything Devon except for the odd Dartmoor/west Country phrase that slips in when I'm not thinking. Nothing like the lovely Scottish accents you all have I'm sure. I suppose we've got more used to the soft lilt of the islanders as we've spent so much time on Mull. Lovely sound - send shivers of delight down my spine - always made me feel 'Oh how lovely - we're back again!'
Oh dear - and I thought you had a lovely, but not deep, Devon accent, but I realise that where people live now isn't, like me, necessarily where they come from.
I agree about the lilt but I think you'd find the accents of central Scotland, unless they're toned down a bit, harsh on the ears. I know I do, and I was born and brought up in this part of the country! The exception is the Glasgow accent, or "patter", which at its broadest is, like Doric, practically a language in its own right. Pronunciation apart, it's uniqueness is the speaker's ability to run several words together to form a one-word sentence, e.g. "whitzatawabootbyraway? (what is that all about, by the way?), and the use of the glottal stop, i.e. missing out the "t" in the middle of words so that "patter" becomes "pah-er" and "bottle "boh-le", etc.
I just love listening to it, but then my mother was a Glaswegian (although no noticeable accent), so there's Glasgow blood in my veins.
