i'm doing an informal study, require data.*

*note: subvocalization is saying full words in you head, and not merely uttering them quietly under your breath as some definitions might suggest.

I'm a little unsure of your terms here - 'saying' has connotations of speech, i.e. vocalized. You strengthen that by 'uttering them'.

Sub vocalized, as I understand it, refers to the 'sound created by the words' as recognized by the mind while reading, but doesn't require speech.

Which term is it you reference? The sound of the word, or the thought of the sound of the word?

yes, good question. i am referencing the mental 'sounding' out of each word [in written sentences, etc.] in your head. no audible speech required. however, if one does audibly read 'out loud', this can also be categorised as subvocalization and thus should be counted as a "yes". . . em. . . but this complicates the poll. . . maybe i should add a third option.

looks like i cannot edit the poll now. therefore, take it as "the thought of the sound of the word[s]".
