A supposed example of Foreign Accent Syndrome:

"An American woman told how how she suddenly developed a British accent
after suffering a stroke.

"When Tiffany Roberts, 57, recovered from the stroke she found she had
an accent placed somewhere between East London and the West Country.

"Even the pitch of her voice changed, becoming much higher than the
deep Indiana drawl she once had."
