<One problem 'sound' thinking can create is that of poor
spelling. Many children must go through school thinking they are
unintelligent because they have problems with English spelling
that is not phonetic. Think of the number of words with the
indeterminate vowel sound in. For example, the suffix 'ble,
could be "able", "ible" or even "eble" but is pronounced the
same way. How does a 'sound' thinker know which to use? There
are many other such word problems.>
I subvocalize when reading and writing but get around the
spelling problem in what I suspect is an odd way -- When writing
English, I mentally pronounce the words using Spanish
pronunciation, which is phonetic. I essentially carry around
two sets of pronunciations, one for speaking/reading and one for
writing. Now that I'm noticing this, even typing this message
seems strange. But it works fine.
