Most Annoying Accents Revealed
New Zealanders got a bit louder after Kiwis topped a poll of world’s sexiest accents. However, not everyone is turned on by our wandering vowels.
A global online survey has revealed which accents are the most annoying ones to listen to, and which country has the most favourable among men and women.
A small study conducted by The Knowledge Academy asked almost 300 men and women to listen to five minutes of the same narrative recorded by distinct English-speaking natives.
Based on the average duration the volunteers listened before switching off, the researchers established which of the English accents people found the most annoying – and the most appealing.
