Boston’s accent is wicked recognizable

According to a recent YouGov poll, Boston has the strongest regional accent in the nation, while Southern accents were deemed the sexiest. Some 23% of respondents picked Boston as the strongest regional accent followed by the Deep South with 16%, and New York and Texas tied with 13% 

More than a third of Americans self-identify as speaking with a regional accent, which means that nearly 120 million Americans speak “funny”.
