The most annoying of all American accents, just ahead of the Philadelphia accent. Most commonly heard from douchebag Red Sox fans who suddenly like to brag about the "Sawwwx" greatness, it sounds like someone cut out a chunk of their tongue, making it impossible for them to pronounce "r" when appropriate, and inserting the "r" sound into words where it doesn't exist. Extremely irritating, as is typical for Bostonians.
Example of a Boston Accent in conversation:

Sean: "Hey, wheah's Pawlie?"

Patrick: "I dunno, I just sawr him the uddah day at dah pahty. He was wicked drunk."

Sean: "Yeah, I sawr him theah too. He was pukin next to a pahked cah. Musta had a hawrrible hangovah the next day."

Patrick: "Yeah, I bet it was wicked. Hey, you going to da Sawwwx game dis Satahday?"

Sean: "Of couahs I'll be theah. Varitek is playing awrsome at cathca lately."

The Boston Accent is not just an accent, it's a lifestyle. Everyone in New England who speaks with varying degrees of this "No R" accent has a swagger about them, because they know they're better than people from other parts of the US. We all live the No R Lifestyle.

If you are from the Northeast, this is the norm. You tend to leave off "r", and sometimes add one in another place. Other times, ohs sound like ahs. Add wicked whenever possible.
red sox= red sahx
The party last night was a lot of fun= the pahty last night was wicked fun!

A dialect typified by a non-rhotic speech pattern and a merger in the vowel classes found in words like "cot" and "caught."

For the record, I've never heard anyone say "Bahsten" or "Sahx," apart from people faking the accent. Most people from Mass or New Hampshire will say "Bawstin" and "sawx."
A Boston Accent would best be used as follows: "Yoah retahded if ya don't think the sawx ah frickin awesome."

Not just changing er to ah. Sometimes bostonians tend to ad er to some words and of course the addition of the word wicked! (only when followed by an adjective)

quarter = quada
pizza = pete-zer
That game was a wicked pissa!
People in eastern mass have a boston accent
by 617 Boston October 08, 2007
Accent primarily used in Eastern Massachusetts. Replace the er with ah and only pronounce r's when u have no choice (like if ur risking sounding like a tard:Gwetchen, Fwee, worek...but even that can be worked into the accent if u try hard enough). Girls think its sexy.
Example of a boston accent:
Why didja go to da gahdens wit Mahcia? Me n' Mahk whento da movies in Hahvahd ta watch the Sax game wit Stacy n' Cahly.

Sean (assume their name is either Sean, Pat, Ryan, or Bobby), why did you go to Boston Gardens with Marcia? Marcus and I travelled to the theater in Cambridge to watch a Red Sox baseball game with Stacy and Carly.
