Pittsburgh's Ugliest Accent Tops 15 Other Funny-Talking Cities

By    |   Tuesday, 21 Oct 2014 07:47 AM

Pittsburghers and the way they talk have won Gawker.com's ugliest accent tournament, besting the other finalist – Scranton – in a reader's poll with more than 54 percent of the vote.

The gossipy news site set up a tournament bracket pitting what it deemed the 16 ugliest city accents in the United States against one another, The Associated Press reported.

Pittsburgh advanced to the finals by winning readers' votes over Atlanta, Philadelphia and Boston.

The Pittsburgh accent, an odd amalgam of southern twang and lazy East Coast diction – which turns downtown into "dahntahn" and you all into "yinz" – "worsted" Scranton by a vote of 10,404 to 8,748.
