When I read, I ‘feel’ the words in my mind. Rather, I feel the signs. Depending on schooling, etc.. we often learn written English as a second language, since ASL (American Sign Language) is not at all related to English. This is why some Deaf people have lower than average English skills, but are highly intelligent and literate in ASL.
