An Australian woman woke up with an Irish accent after a tonsillectomy

[…] when 27-year-old Angie Yen from Brisbane, Australia, apparently woke up on April 28 to find out she’d lost her Aussie accent to an Irish one, her confusion was understandable.

Yen posted videos of her new Irish lilt on her TikTok account, garnering thousands of views as she documented her experience. How did this happen, you might ask. Yen had her tonsils removed in April, and after then, her accent mysteriously changed.

This isn’t the first time that such a drastic change in accent has happened to someone. What Yen might be experiencing is called Foreign Accent Syndrome (FAS)
