The Mirror reports a woman from Canada who fell off a horse and woke up with a Scottish accent is writing a book about her life-changing experience.
Sharon Campbell-Rayment, 50, regained her speech several days after the accident, in Ontario in 2008, says The Mirror.
She had a Scottish accent. and started using words such as "wee", "grand", "awright" and "brilliant".
Doctors later diagnosed foreign accent syndrome - a rare condition associated with head injuries, which affects only 60 people worldwide.
Sharon, a mother-of-two who ran a horse-riding school, says the disorder is a blessing and led to her tracing her family's Scottish roots, adds The Mirror.
