How can our language change after a stroke, that's a question many researchers ask.

Professor Anja Lowit, a linguist and speech therapist at Strathclyde University in Glasgow, UK, said: "A stroke occurs when a certain area of the brain is no longer supplied with blood. speech changes occur not only after stroke, but in many other situations related to brain activity. "


After a stroke most people can still speak all languages that they have more or less used. (Photo: DW).

After a head injury during a football match and a brief coma, an American student regained consciousness but spoke only Spanish.

A British woman, after a severe migraine, had a French accent and another patient developed a vague foreign accent after the reaction to the vaccine.

According to Professor Lowit, after stroke most people can still speak all the languages that they use more or less but some cases can be affected to different degrees and often this is just a phenomenon. temporary.

Put simply, a person after a brain stroke will no longer have enough energy to build all previous connections at the same time and at the same speed. At that time, depending on what the brain receives one of the languages used can easily appear. Professor Lowit further explained: "After stroke, certain areas of the brain die, but depending on age, the brain may use other areas to perform the tasks of the brain region."

"Speech disorders in old age can occur in some forms such as dementia, impaired ability to find words, grammar and correct pronunciation of the brain. This phenomenon is different from after a stroke in then the initial loss of brain areas is very drastic and then the ability will be improved again if supported by therapy "- Professor Lowit said.
