I have a thing for American accents in particular, how do you Americans view our UK accents?, do you see the regional differences i.e. a Cokney to a Scouser or does it all just sounds so British. I think I can understand the differences between the country and more obvious New York accents.
Just let me know
If given two samples to compare, we can usally tell the differece. But we can't name them. as Cockney/Scouser, etc. Unless we are an actor. My brother in law used to be an actor and knows the difference.
But I can tell you that in general, most Americans love an English accent. We think it sounds sophisticated, even if it comes from the lowest slum neighborhood.
