Dating america american men
One of the earliest and most fundamental findings in the field of linguistics is that our perception of accents is much more deeply connected to the social and cultural trappings we associate with them than with their objective sonic qualities.
In reality, though, the attractiveness of an accent probably has little to nothing to do with the way that it sounds, and everything to do with unexamined assumptions Americans often make.
Put another way: Beauty is in the eye—or the ear, as the case may be—of the beholder.
Accents aside, dating experts say that American women traveling overseas should do a little research before chatting up a local.
For instance, because of the United States’ early history as a part of colonial Great Britain, many Americans still tend to associate British accents with prestige, or high social status.
Maybe that helps to explain why the British accent was recently named the “sexiest” in the world, at least when men use it.
