I am asking without being taught some language, are the prelinguistically deaf capable of thought? Like infants, are they capable of thought, just no means of expressing that thought? Or, are simply both not capable of thought but only instinct and habit? I hope that clarifies my question a bit more. We are all taught some form of language, and think in that language. The french think in french, the spanish think in spanish.... The deaf who know ASL or other forms of sign think in sign. WITHOUT being taught that sign, are they capable of thought?
Re: Do the prelinguistically deaf think before they are taught language?
