Husband Speaking A Different Language.

Husband Speaking A Different Language.

Two days ago Ernie started speaking what sounds like Asian. He does it really fast and will even point to what he is apparently talking about. I even asked him when did he learn to speak Asian and he did it again. Not just a word or two but an entire dialogue. He doesn’t know any other language except Texan. They have a language all their own in Texas. lol
Has anyone else had this sort of thing happen with their LO with Alzheimer’s?

From what I have read, sometimes a person THINKS he is speaking English, but gibberish comes out.. scrambled signals in the brain. Check with your neurologist. If it was sudden onset, he may have had a TIA...mild stroke.

I think it’s probably just gibberish like a very small child would do before they learn to talk.

When DH is awake in the night but lost in one delusion or another, his voice changes to a higher pitch and he goes back to speaking’Trini’. It’s the Trinidad English of his youth.

In 1987 my DA had a car accident with head injury. He spoke what he said was TiPai . Thank heaven there was a nurse to hear it because it was so crazy! She asked me if he had been in the service which he hadn’t. Weirdest thing ever💜💚
