Foreign accent syndrome (FAS) is a motor speech disorder that is perceptually defi ned by the presence of a foreign accent in speech, whereby segmental as well as suprasegmental changes, i.e. rhythm and intonation, have been associated with the perceived foreign accent in speech. This study systematically investigated the intonation patterns in FAS using the established autosegmental-metrical theory of intonational analysis. The main objective of this investigation was to determine possible intonation changes in FAS, to identify their potential underlying nature and through this offer further insights into the principles of intonation realisation in this speech disorder.
