“Foreign Accent Syndrome” Scary Huh?

I just recently found out about a specific condition of *Foreign Accent Syndrome*. This is very odd how someone can live their whole life in one place and all of a sudden have an accent of some total different place they never been.

Foreign Accent Syndrome: Foreign accent syndrome (FAS) is speech disorder that causes a sudden change to speech so that a native speaker is perceived to speak with a “foreign” accent.  FAS is most often caused by damage to the brain caused by a stroke or traumatic brain injury. Other causes have also been reported including multiple sclerosis and conversion disorder and in some cases no clear cause has been identified.


So is that scary or what? Not very many develop that syndrome, however for the very few that do, it’s very odd.
