If you think the tractor’s sexy, wait’ll you hear them talk oncest.
Why, a new study done by the website Big 7 Travel chust ranked the Pennsylvania Dutch accent as the 41st sexiest accent in America.
According to the results, Pennsylvania Dutch is chust a little less seggzy than the Appalachia accent (more West Virginny than anything you’d find here). But it’s sexier than the Pittsburgh “yinzer” accent that sounds a lot like PA Dutch. That ranked 43rd. And those jags definitely don’t speak Pennsylvania Dutch there.
Sexiest American Accents – Pennsylvania Dutch is #41
Big 7 surveyed readers to find out what accent is sexiest in America. The sexiest? They say it’s the Texan accent.
Second on the list is Boston. Third is the New York accent, but not Long Island. That Lawn-guy-lund accent ranked at #50. Philadelphia’s accent ranked 8th, surprisingly.
You hear bits and pieces of these accents around here, save for the Bostonian. Lots of people say “wudder” around here.
It’s hard to tell if Pennsylvania Dutch coming in at #41 is a good or bad thing. Is it really sexy or does being at the bottom of this list a knock on the dialect?
The only indications are that the survey is prefaced: “Consider yourself very lucky if your accent is among the Top 10 …”.
The Coal Cracker accent you hear anywhere from Minersville to North of the Mountain does not make the list.
It, like Pennsylvania Dutch, is like an acquired taste. Kinda like sauerkraut.
That Pennsylvania Dutch accent is certainly the most unique. And it’s definitely dying ot.
The PA Dutch accent is probably thickest around the Hegins and Tower City areas. But you can hear it in some people from Cressona and Schuylkill Haven, Orwigsburg and Auburn, New Ringgold, definitely Pine Grove and Tremont and points in between.
