I think perceptions differ. When I read long text or even dialogue, I "see"
more than I "hear". Even if the scene is that of an orator delivering a
seminar on the intricacies of molecular structure, the first thing that
strikes me is the podium, the way he stands, how he turns to the board to
write an equation and so on. The words of the lecture themselves are
something heard in the background. Guess some people are predominantly
visual and some are aural.
Maybe I feel this way because I started out in advertising.

I was talking to our CTO over a few cold ones the other evening and he
experiences the same phenomenon as I. This guy is pretty smart, both
academically and "street", writes and reads quite a bit, and is usually the
"turn-to" guy when I need a complex topic clarified. I know that this group
reads, re-reads, edits, etc. , so I'm wondering if this phenomenon is
endemic to us word types.
