The people of Glasgow have the sexiest accent, according to a new survey conducted by British Airways.
The study polled Americans and Brits, and asked each to rate the regional accents found in each country on a scale of sexiest to least sexy. According to the study, of the 1,000 Americans surveyed, the Glaswegian accent is the sexiest in the country, withe London-based ‘Cockney’ accent coming in second. The poll also asked the participants to rate accents based on a scale of intelligence, and the Geordie accent of Newcastle lead the way.
The survey also revealed immense confusion around accents and geography in both Brits and Americans.
97% of Brits thought the Canadian accent was from the U.S. while 25% of Americans thought a Mancunian accent (from Manchester) was Cockney. Only two in five Americans could correctly pinpoint London on a map and one in three thought Bristol was in Northern Ireland.
