    What about Bornholm Danish? I wouldn't say its particularly beautiful but it sounds very unfamiliar. It sounds like a mixture of Danish and some accents in Southern Sweden. It seems they articulate more than standard Danish, which is good.

    Btw TheAmerican, when did the nasal accent on many American women start? Because many (usually young) swedish women also have a nasal way of speaking, which might be something they picked up from American tv.

    There are numerous American accents but I think the Northeast/New England accent is what you're referring to...?

    Dutch:
    "Political correctness is the (...) revenge of the (...) intolerant, (...) dunce upon all the liveliness in this world. It is no more than the (...) resort of minds (...) that, for them, a revival of Stalinism is preferable to the pain of a glimpse of self-it's the last sigh of the beast that Nietzsche identified as ressentiment."

    German is nice because you have many ways to say something, but it sounds boring to me. My favourite germanic languages are Dutch and Swedish.
