Waking Up Speaking Welsh

(Photo credit: The Huffington Post)

I just read an article about a disease that I have never thought about its existence. Can you imagine waking up one day speaking a foreign language that you have never learnt before? This phenomenon happened to an Englishman, Alun Morgan. 

After waking up from a stroke, his wife is the only person that can understand him. Doctors have diagnosed him with a form of brain damage that causes shifts in language ability. He was evacuated to Wales during the Second World War. Thus, due to this fact, the doctors believe that the language sunk in and released by the stroke.
