This is despite the fact that Tiffany Roberts, 61, has never been to Britain. Her accent is a mixture of English cockney and West Country.
Doctors say Mrs Roberts, who was born and bred in Indiana, has a condition called foreign accent syndrome.
This rare condition occurs when part of the brain becomes damaged. This can follow a stroke or head injury. There have only been a few documented cases.
This is quite similar to "Pain in the Ass Syndrome," where a person has hemorrhoids so severe that they begin to speak French.
