Language of the deaf

1 year, 11 months ago

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?

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.
