    US mum speaks with British accent after surgery.

    A US mum has awoken from jaw surgery speaking with a British accent much to the surprise of her family, friends and doctors.
    Lisa Alamia, who was born and bred in Texas, has been speaking with a northern English twang since undergoing a routine procedure to correct an overbite six months ago.
    “People who don’t know me, they’re like, ‘Hey, where are you from?’ and I say Rosenberg,” Ms Alamia told Houston Texas news KHOU.com.


    “Oh, you’re from here? How do you talk like that?’ So that’s where the whole story comes up.”
    Since her surgery, doctors have diagnosed Ms Alamia with the rare neurological condition foreign accent syndrome.

    I would love to speak with a British accent. My DNA shows 72% Great Britain, 19% Ireland so I should have been born with a British accent.

    Reminds me of when Casey Anthony told a cell mate that she wanted to adopt a baby from a foreign country so it would have an accent!
