My thought processes work much faster than a language can convey.I don't think in a language unless I'm talking or writing.

none you would have never heard the language being spoken, but would know the written word.

I agree with you here. I always have trouble writing essays because my hands could never keep up with my thoughts.

They don't think in any language, they don't think in terms of sounds. They'd only think visually.

Sign Language - End Thread

I know because my aunt was deaf and how you learn sign language is through visualization and relating objects to hand symbols.

Edit: As far as writing goes you can learn in any language. Sign Language is just a way to express what you want to say without writing it down first. You can use visualization as well to show that "Apple" = (Picture of Apple here).

They probably think using words. Like they see the words and read them in their mind since thats their main source of communication - so their mind is wired to function that way as well. Whichever language that text is, depends on where they are.
