Foreign Accent Syndrome

This syndrome causes people to speak their native language as if they had a foreign accent. Wacky, no?

I don't find this condition wacky at all. In fact, I'm a patient with FAS. I don't appreciate being labeled "wacky." The fact of the matter is that you don't know what us FAS patients face on a daily bases. I've had to learn how to speak again. I've had to relearn words. I was accused of lying in the airport of where I'm from. Its sad when you have a brother who has nearly died for your country, and because of a "rare" medical condition I'm labeled. Think before you speak~ We are truly medical patients who have a true medical condition. Pattie

You should be thankful, Pattie, because it's quite humorous for us.

you seem to have overcome the disease quite nicely, si Pattiekins. For those of us still suffering, it owns us.

I know someone that spent so much time in the U.S. speaking english that she speaks her native turkish with an accent. No brain damage what so ever.

XD at Pattie. I think this is referring to people who haven't left the country. You know, like the people who speak with British accents even though they've never met a British person, never lived in England.

Tim here. If you have something that doesn't actually threaten your life, well, I say, Fair Game. Sorry, folks, but I can take something seriously, emphathize, even donate money to stamp it out. At the same time I allow myself a good laugh about it once in a while. I won't cop out. I'm a complicated man. No one understands me but my woman.

I have to agree that it is comical. This syndrome usually occurs in people who suffer head trauma and get mild brain damage. I read a news article about it. It gradually goes away in most cases. Yuck it up, guys. Pattie needs to be a better sport.
