    If you were born deaf you have never heard a spoken word.
    How would you think?
    (serious question no smartass answers from idiots who think they are funny or clever please)

    I've wondered about that from time to time....You mean like how we generally "think" in terms of words and phrases, right? I don't know, but I used to work with a dude who was deaf from birth, was married to a woman who was the same, and all 3 of there kids were also born deaf....but, they had been to schools that taught them how to read lips, and sign, and read and write of course. The guy could even talk some, but it took a LOT of getting used to before I could understand him...My favorite thing was when he'd call our boss "Ah Zoo"...which was "Asshole" as close as he could say it.
