thoughts and feels and thoughts and feels [userpic]
Abstract and discursive thoughts on linguistics.

Because I don't think of English words as combinations of letters or even as objects but as ideas... is that why it is easier for me than for some people to learn foreign languages? Because I do not think 'what is this word in English?' but instead 'what does this mean?'

I had this thought because I just read an entry in Spanish, and mostly understood it (well enough to answer comprehension questions, I thought) and then I thought 'what if the questions were in Spanish too?' But that would be okay, because it's just the same words as were in the entry.
