    ...That suggests that the accent could be linked to potential brain damage (not really, but still). :-D Hahaha...that`s great.

    Also, it seems like I`m the only person in the world that doesn`t love accents and want one...

    Stentorian, we all have an "accent." An accent is just a certain inflection and manner of speaking. Americans tend to have a somewhat high-pitched accent that prefers short vowels to long ones. To some, our accent can actually sound fairly "whiny." I have an American accent, though my vowels tend to be a bit longer-sounding.

    Although, with a little patience and a speech coach any accent can be removed and a new one aquired.

    no i`d say its real, i watched a whole documentary about a woman who had this - she had a regular british accent, then had a stroke and spoke with a full on jamaican accent. it wasnt something that you could put on...but yeah this woman doesnt sound that english.
    does it annoy anyone from the UK that in american sitcoms and stuff, the only english people they have, have really OTT posh english accents? it does me.

    Her accent sounds really fake. Not that she`s faking the syndrome, I have heard of it before, but no British person would ever think that she`s British. It`s a shame, because her voice sounded really nice before. I heard a story like this where a girl hit her head and started talking with a French accent. She hit her head again a few months later and she went back to her natural Welsh one. Maybe this woman should try that.

    yeah this is kinda old news
    this was on discovery healths channels medical incredible like last year i think?
    anyways doctors and specialists think that the body speech is just changed to what we think SOUNDS like a different accent.. it doesnt have anything to do with the brain actually imitating an accent

    so maybe thats why she doesnt sound really British to some of the England people here

    Bellatrix, you`re right that alot of people smush all the British accents into one category. I don`t know them all, but I do know there are alot of different accents and dialects over there.

    It makes me feel the same way when people say "American Accent". We have more than one accent here, particular to many small areas (Boston, NYC, California, Buffalo, Southern US, Texas....the list goes on)

    I studied Linguistics in college and the dept taught that EVERYONE has an accent and dialect, you may just not be able to hear your own becuase it may be subtle.

    And she doesnt sound at all British, but its odd of the BBC to say a "British" accent instead of "English". I think its garbage though, brain damage wouldnt make your accent sound like an existing different one, thats just stupid.

    Oh, and by the way-the American Southern accent is STUPID!
