Think it'll work for me?
That reminds me of the recent Stone Soup storyline in which Max got a concussion and emerged speaking like a freakin' English nanny.
Sounds impossible, really.
Two words that explain this: Fox. News.
This sort of thing regularly happens to stroke victims. When they regain the ability to speak they often have completely different speech patterns from their old voices, and sometimes the new pattern is recognisably close to that of another region's accent.
Still, with a name like William McCartney-Moore a posh accent won't be that out of place will it?
For once they're not "stretching" the truth.
The poor, poor boy. My heart goes out to him.
Still, on the plus side some families spend an absolute fortune sending their kids to swanky schools to make them sound all posh and stuff, so they've saved themselves a bit of cash there. Good old fashioned Yorkshire thriftiness, that.
I've heard about this sort of thing happening before too, to people who've had brain surgery or suffered some kind of brain injury. I seem to remember a year or two ago there was an American woman who had an op and ended up speaking with a quite obscure Swedish accent?
Similar refinements can be had by eliminating Fox News from ones sources of information.
I've heard reports of people waking up to find they speak another language entirely.
Not sure how true they are though/
My IQ increased to average intelligence when I stopped watching infomercials.
I'm not that smart. I set it, and I forgot it.
This kind of thing happens to me when I drink a surfeit of alcohol: I start talking Utterbollocks.
i saw an american woman, with no british ties, after a stroke speak with a british accent, so it's not uncommon to start speaking in a different accent.
i guess that would be the least of their worries, right? if they fully recover, who cares if they speak a different language or accent?
And you call that full recovery?
HA! Very, very funny.
LOL. Funny because it's true
Her accent does sound like that of a stroke victim.
LOL! Well played.
