Foreign accent syndrome: not such a funny turn. Invited editorial (2007)

Author(s): Miller N

    Abstract: In foreign accent syndrome (FAS) it appears as if someone who previously spoke with one accent has suddenly started speaking with a different one; usually foreign, but sometimes another accent of the same language. This can occur in people who have never spoken with a different accent, never lived abroad and have no psychological reasons for speaking differently, although these are all factors to consider in differential diagnosis.
