FAS is an acronym for "Foreign Accent Syndrome" which under misterious, unexplained circumstances affects some people after they are hit by a shrapnel or suffer of a head trauma, as Neurologist try to explain.
But this time, the curious event, which consists on starting speaking its own language with foreign accent never known before, regards an american woman who woke up after dental surgery speaking with british accent.
It happened to 56 year old Karen Butler who was born in Oregon (USA) and never went farer than Mexico in her life.
It seems a sub variation of another better known: the Xenoglossy, an extra sensorial perception which seems to consist on speaking totally unknown foreign languages (sometimes they are even dead or ancient languages like ancient latin or greek) following an head shock or a violent event.
