Worst is whatever accent that is where people put an R at the end of words ending in A, like Cubar.

For me it would have to be the Chicano accent you hear in East LA and other lower class, Hispanic areas. This accent is found in people who grew up in the US around other Latinos, NOT people who were born and raised in Mexico. It's that kind of accent you associate with cholo(a)s, it's so annoying and I hear it a lot where I live. It literally makes me want to bang my head in, especially when they're a young girl who also sounds a bit valley girl (another accent I hate).

The sound of an old man farting is better than that ridiculous Friday song. I admit, I'd rather listen to Call Me Maybe though instead of Friday. But there is no defense for how unbelievably annoying and repetitive that dumb song is.

I can tell the difference. I was just saying they both annoy me.

the annoying accent for me is the new jersey and broycklyn accents. They sound Italian not American.
That's not a New Jersey accent. That's an accent on TV shows pretending to take place in New Jersey but using people with New York accents. People in NJ do not speak like people in Brooklyn. Hell, most people in Brooklyn don't speak like people in Brooklyn anymore!

I met a guy from St. Louis who is in his early 20's and he has a little bit of the accent, but it isn't too bad.
Are you sure? I've never met anybody my age or younger who talks like that. I'm telling you, the accent is disappearing.

Well you would know more about it than me so I'm not going to disagree with you. It sure sounds different than anything I've heard in the rest of Missouri. Maybe it is a hint of the Northern Cities Vowel Shift, but I'm not sure if that is occuring in St. Louis?

Default regarding accents as related to the Chgo area,,,,

In my opinion a normal guy who went through a north side (Chgo) grade school and Highschool and hung arounf with 20 or so of his class mates from similiar living circumstances...........he would have a noticable accent that would identify him as being frommthe north side..............................On the other side of the coin, the guys from 63rd and Halsted would have enough of a different accent that it was certainly enough to indicate they were surely not "north-side guys"...................just my opinion from my experience gathered from approx 1947 through 1960. ........As far as today goes..................I don't know........way too many other races and nationalities are now part of the "picture"............haven't livd back there for many, many years,.........so my knowledge isn't very valid.
