Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Q&A about words Thinking language
#151862 12/12/05 05:25 PM Is the language of the mind, English, or whatever your first language is?
Not necessarah-lee, but primarily. It seems that those who know different languages can, with some *effort, switch back and forth.
Are words thoughts?
Yes, but they are not the only *things that are.
Is thinking merely talking to yourself?
I can think a melody. I can think in multiple part harmony... so the answer is: No, but it does seem to be self-oriented.
Is communication a way to transfer thoughts from one mind to another?
That, IMHO, depends on your intent.
Can you speak as fast as you think?
For me *they are about the same speed.
Are sounds or colors thoughts?
The above consensus says: Yes.
Are some thoughts unspeakable or simply ineffable?
I say: Without a doubt!
