Those people who experience Asperger syndrome often have some uncommon speech patterns such as speaking too loudly, suddenly changing in thoughts, using odd phrases, or centering conversations on their beliefs and interests. The main reason is that they cannot pick up some social cues as usual and would involve in monologues about topics which can be boring to other people without realization.
