I've always wondered what foreigners think an "American accent" is.  Is it Texas . . . Deep South . . . Midwest . . . New England . . . Valley Girl . . . or just a blend of everything?  Well, whatever it is, a decent portion of people think it's HOT.

A new global survey by "Time Out" magazine asked people to name the hottest accent in the world, and an American accent came in at #8.  Canada did NOT make the top ten.  Here are the ten most attractive accents in the world . . .

1.  English with 17% of the vote.

2.  French, 13%.

3.  Italian, 11%.

4.  Irish, 9%.

5.  Spanish, 7%.

6.  Scottish, 6%.

7.  Australian, 5%.

8.  American, 4%.  The same survey a few years ago found we had the SECOND hottest accent.  So I guess we're slipping.

9.  Brazilian, 3%.

10.  Japanese, 2%.
