Do you find it strange to stumble over words that you're visually familiar with in thought?
What I am getting at is you can see the picture of the word, know what the word stands for, but can not pronounce the word? When I was a child I did childish things, but when I became a man I put away childish things.
Hi Patty. I experience this from time to time. For me, it occurs in groups of unfamiliar people, where I can get nervous and stumble over my words.
That might be a bit different from what you describe, but it's a similar concept. Some people also just struggle with hard-to-say words like anemone.
Yes! I see words in my head before I say them and will say them phonetically if I am not careful. It can be embarrassing because it can slow my speech down and some mispronunciations me seem like I am trying to say a word I do not know, leaving me wanting to say, "No, wait, I really do know that word!" Stumbling over the word vignette when working with a client when discussing a child's mural was one of the worst... Oh well. Worse things have happened.
I hear ya. It feels good when I can pronounce every word and know something about that word. Thanks for your response RTalloni.
