Alright, op, let me be the sympathetic one: if an "accent" is all you noticed, chances are that her brother is a high-functioning autistic. Autism varies from person to person. My step-mother works in SPED and gets a lot of autistic students in her classes. Some are high-functioning - I wouldn't have known there was anything different about them right away. Others have autism so severe that they can't make eye-contact or speak. My own step-brother is autistic and falls somewhere bet

89 if I can ask without sounding rude or stupid, if you are mute, what sort of voice do you hear in your head when you read? I mean, because, I hear my own voice. :P

Quest_ - I can't really speak for #89, but if I were mute, I would read everything in Morgan Freeman's voice. Actually, sometimes I do that anyway.

It's a big foot in your mouth but still just an honest mistake. Least you didn't call him a retard or something really obnoxious

Maybe OP had never heard an autistic person before. It can sound like someone with autism has an accent at times.
