Homepage › Forums › Mind › Language of the deaf
If one was deaf since birth, what could be the language he or she possess in their thoughts. Are their minds silent or do they think of a language different from what the general population speak?

@lorenzo, see: http://www.highexistence.com/topic/if-you-were-blind-deaf-and-couldnt-feel-anything-no-pain-receptors/
Think of what ASL is based on…gestures. Think of how we (I’m assuming you’re not deaf) sub-vocalize, and then see if you can imagine how meanings may be processed differently.
@lorenzo, They think visually and in feelings. They aren’t able to think in a language at all except for possibly reading something, because their brains have no experience of hearing/speaking any language at all.
