is it possible to think without a language? Helen Keller knew nothing about language untill the age of 16 when she began to speak. To any deaf and mute person, language would not be a medium of thought, or would it? My Father says he thinks in pictures, but to me that in a way makes no sense. When people talk about things they can't express in words, it isn't the same thing. Reason being that when i closely examined this phenomenon with myself it turned out, when it came to expressing it to the others, it became difficult but when i explained it to myself in my head, it made perfect, absolute sense... any help?
