SAKING IN ACCENTS A 46
-year-old Massachusetts man walked away from a car accident with an unexpected problem: he spoke with a French accent. “At first it bothered me very much, because I can’t make myself well understood,” the man, who asked not to be identified, said in a telephone interview. He said he had no experience with a foreign language and had never traveled farther than New Jersey from his home in Worcester, Mass. The case offers a clue into a rare neurological problem dubbed Foreign Accent Syndrome that has been chronicled in scientific literature about two dozen times since 1907. From the Trenton Times
