I know this question might seem somehow ridiculous to you or silly. You may ask me why don't answer these questions by thinking of what you do in your native language. The thing is that I didn't want to generalize since English has a different grammar structure and every language is different from another one even at the smallest scale. Also you may ask me since you type in English why can't you answer the questions. The thing is the question is asked at a deeper level, when speaking or when thinking, by last I mean when you hear your inner voice in your mind. The ultimate objective of an English learner, in my opinion, is to have the ability to think integrally and with easiness in English and also by doing so the speaker will get the capability of speaking with the others at an extensive level. And lastly and thank you for also reading this small description, if you could tell me more about how you think in English I would be extremely thankful.
- Do native speakers think of the structure of the sentence (placing the order of the words, choosing a word in favor of another one, the tense they want to use etc.) or do it automatically?
- What is the element of morphology that drives you to say the sentences with so much confidence? The noun, the verb or something else?
- Do you visualize in your mind the words you are thinking of? If so, you visualize mainly the nouns? How do you do it when you have a more abstract word that isn't an object such as 'calm'?
