On a Rainy Sunday Afternoon
A friend and I were hanging out and a thought pop in my head. “Can someone who is deaf “hear” an inner monolog”. That brought up a few questions by my friend, well more or less different circumstances listed here.
- A person who is deaf from birth.
-Does this person have an inner monologue and do they “hear it” or does the brain develop pictures of sign language, or just images for that matter?
- A person who was able to hear as a kid but became deaf at a young age.
-Does this person “hear” an inner monologue and if so, is it only the voice their brain knows at the time they became deaf?
Time for a few searches into the googlesphere and med site. Turns out I’m not the only one who is asking this question, which is good thing.
