The hard-to-pin-down Northwestern accent is found in Oregon and Washington has features of the Canadian/California Vowel Shift. The letter “e” in words like egg sounds more like ‘ay’, so don’t be confused if you hear someone ordering avo and “ayggs” for their breakfast.
I get the Texas one. It's a good, relaxed drawl that isn't excessive and can sound laid back. Not as good as a west North Carolina accent, though. Both are better than a trashy, low Southern accent, where they manage to get three vowels out of one.
I'm not sure what a California accent is supposed to be, though. North and South sound different, and everyone in the Central Valley sounds like they're from Oklahoma.
As someone with the ninth sexiest accent I really don't know what to make of it. For domestic Americans I feel like anything "exotic" is considered sexy (Latin, Queens English, French, etc). Whereas only strong outliers in American accents(Southern, New England, etc) are the only ones to produce any sway in attraction for better or worse.
The 12 states that make up the Midwest have some of their own unique accents, but generally speaking the Midwestern accent in say, Iowa and Nebraska, is subtle and sweet. The words Mary, marry, and merry all rhyme with each other.
Texas Accent is the same as my accent if they are talking about "South Midland" as an accent. Can't be that one, lol... I'm used to people just thinking I'm am illiterate. Never really got 'sexy' out of it. They are talking about El Paso cowboys, I'm sure.
Yeah, I thought that was normal American pronunciation common in all accents. Just like 'tin/ten' and 'pin/pen' being pronounced identically. Is that a midwest thing? I'm from where South meets Midwest and I always thought we speak a midwestern dialect with a southern accent. Never know what comes from what.
Pretty sure my Boston accent was the only reason I got a girlfriend at my college in Oregon lol. It’s nothing like it sounds like in movies/tv btw. I still find it annoying when I hear a recording of my voice lol
