So! I am fairly certain that the way I process words is pretty weird. Then again, I think that about a lot of the things I do which people say is pretty normal, so I dunno. So, I can't spell worth shit, and sounding out words is a foreign concept. I learned all the phonetics charts they taught us in school, but it just doesn't matter. I basically rely on memorization to get by. (I swear, I'm having more problems typing this post than usual.) And I can get by pretty well because I read a lot, and I have a good memory for stuff I read, and so words tend to stick pretty well. Spellcheck is a Godsend though. (This is the same reason I can tell when something is spelled wrong, but have no idea how to fix it.) But yeah, since I've been reading since forever, I never really considered dyslexia as I thing I could be. Words and letters don't move around on the page or anything either. I do swap syllables when trying to pronounce things though! Sometimes adjacent, sometimes not. Like I initially parsed Enkidi as "en-di-ki" and now I can't flip them back (yeah I totally looked that up to check if it was right). I also delete syllables in the middle of words, I think. (I don't have an example for that one.) I have a very hard time pronouncing words in general. Like I know that stress in English is actually regular and so it's not like vowels are changing all whilly-nilly on me, but it still feels like that because I have a hard time hearing stress (like I can when it's obvious, but it takes effort). Also in Linguistics doing phonetics is HARD. [f], [h], [x]? practically the same on their own. Next to something else and I can usually hear the difference, but... And don't get me started on low back vowels. Oh and I swap b and p when sounding out words to type pretty often. On words I know how to spell even! But that's the only pair that's a problem, and not all the time. Oh oh, numbers too. Once I was copying down a sheet of numbers and I realized that the numbers I was silently repeating in my head weren't the numbers on the screen, or the ones I was writing down. The numbers on the screen and the numbers I wrote down matched, though. So who knows. But anyway that's some of my word weirdness, I'll add more as I remember. Anyone got any ideas? Or resources/things for me to look it with which to get ideas? Trying to find things via google is anxiety inducing.
