Foreign Accent Syndrome: Suddenly, She Started to Speak…

Diseases that suddenly become a foreign language accent

Patients with “foreign accent syndrome” speak with a foreign language accent.

A woman born and raised in Tasmania, Australia, suffered a car accident one day and broke her back and jaw.

Suddenly, the English she usually speaks became with a French accent.

After leaving the hospital, her injuries healed, but her French accent did not heal.

By the way, she can hardly speak French.

She has learned French when she was a student, but she has never been there and he has no French friends.

There are some more people whose language has become with a foreign accent as a result of their injuries.

However, patients with this disease are extremely rare, and so far only about 60 cases have been confirmed in the world.
