Oswald's Accent

on Wed 22 Mar 2017, 4:42 am

the debate has turned to Oswald's fluency in Russian and his "Northern" accent while at Beauregard. As for

how he learned Russian so easlily - as I have pointed out many times - this is a trait of Asperger's. It is also a trait of Asperger's to acquire accents easily:

"When a person with Asperger's syndrome learns a foreign language, there can be a remarkable ability to pronounce the words as spoken by a native speaker. This can lead to a successful career in languages, such as a translator or interpreter..." The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome, Tony Attwood, p 225


Further...

Background FAS has been described in adults following acute injury to the brain. Children commonly develop an accent closer to that of their peers than their parents’ native accent. Children with ASD often have a speech and language disorder. There have been no recorded cases of children speaking with a foreign accent that they have not been exposed to.

We present 3 British children with Asperger’s syndrome who speak with an American sounding accent with no prior exposure to it. We will show DVD clips of their speech.

Case 1: White English girl, 8, with unilateral hearing loss following congenital CMV infection. Attending main stream school with a statement of special educational needs (SEN), but with significant social and communication difficulties; diagnosed as Asperger’s syndrome. Fluent speech with a strong American accent.

Case 2: White English boy, 9, with CHARGE syndrome, attending main stream school with a statement of SEN; good speech, but with poor social interaction skills and significant obsessional behaviour; was diagnosed as Asperger’s syndrome. Speaks with a clear American accent.

Case 3: Black British boy, 6 with behavioural difficulties, in main stream school with significant social and communication difficulties; diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome. Has clear speech with an American accent.

Looks like all those doctors were wrong. Those little English kids didn't have Asperger's at all. Thanks to HardlyLee.nut experts we can now safely say they were all actually orphans from the US.

The leaps in logic they freely make are truly breathtaking.

In all the years I've seen you deba....debunk this shite I have only seen one convert to H&L. A man with a 12 gallon head wearing a 10 gallon hat.
Brian gets some credit here. His bollocks is inventive. Corner him and he creates a new "skill" that only he is master of.
Hargrove is a lazy bastard who like a badly scratched LP, keeps repeating. Show him up on the school records, well what about the unit diaries. Shut him up on that and it's back to school.
Bottom line, if your head is to big for your hat, H&L swings.

Comment by someone in an online discussion about those with Asperger's learning foreign languages:
===================
My special interest happened to be languages during my years in High School.


I taught myself to speak to an intermediate level knowledge of Russian during my first year in High School. Also, I was the most advanced student in my French classes to the point of just being completely bored waiting for the other students to catch up and my teachers seemed to be impressed with my ability. I also taught myself a good deal of German.


Languages come super easy to me and I have no idea why, but ever since I learned that I have Asperger’s, I have always wondered if it was related to my seemingly special abilities with languages.


Also all of the Russian-speaking people that I have met were astonished because they said that I speak Russian with absolutely no American accent.
