Brisbane woman wakes up with Irish accent
A Brisbane woman says she’s woken up with an Irish accent, ten days after having her tonsils removed.
Doctors told the 27-year-old Angie Yen the accent was likely a result of damage to her vocal cords following her surgery.
But Ms Yen believes she is suffering from Foreign Accent Syndrome and decided to publicly come forward to spread awareness.
