Stroke Womans Foreign Accent

A Scottish grandmother has started speaking with an Italian accent after suffering a stroke, despite never having visited the country. When Debbie McCann, 48, had a minor stroke in November last year, she was left with a voice she didn’t recognise. She has since been diagnosed with Foreign Accent Syndrome, an extremely rare medical condition where a person starts speaking in a different accent due to a brain injury, stroke or migraine.
