A) Wow, rude.
B) ‘Disability’, first of all, is literally just impairment + stigma. In other words, disability doesn’t just mean “I could never do x y z under any circumstances with any help whatsoever”, it can mean “I can only do x y z under q r t circumstances with a b c help, and it will only be in u v w ways.”
A lot of people with language disabilities, including me, are of the latter meaning. Meaning, we can use or understand language at least some of the time, under some circumstances, with some help, in some ways.
For example: I am much better at expressive language than receptive. I can write complicated, intricate things, but if you repeat it back to me I might not be able to understand any of it.
Part of that is because I have auditory processing problems (i.e. I can technically hear but not hear correctly), part is just how my brain works. So I can write or say something like ‘Me duelen mi cuerpo y mi religion’ but if someone said the same thing it’d take me a little bit to detangle it.
A lot of autistic people/people with language disabilities who superficially appear to have no language disabilities are just really good at hiding them.
Some people repeat stock phrases, have filler words, have words to look like they’re processing quicker when they’re not. (eg: people who have really good small-talk scripts and can just run scripts for the first 5 minutes of an interaction before having to say anything original).
Some people have really extensive echolalia, including of pop culture references, and use it in a way that makes them just appear witty. (eg: person can say things like “I don’t want a drink, I want ten drinks” to explain OCD more easily, person can say “I’ve been compromised” to explain emotions).
Some people are really good at expressing factual information and bad at expressive emotional or descriptive information (eg: person can say “the shirt is hunter green, was made in China in 2005, is 90% cotton and 10% polyester, is 23” around the bottom and has a 10” sleeve” without difficulty, but can’t say easily “the shirt feels like the first sip of sweet tea on a summer morning” or think of it.)
Some people are super, super good at using academic language/jargon and really bad at using more simplified, plain language. Some people have the opposite set of tendencies.
Some people can understand atonal or tonal languages more easily, depending on how well they can hear tone. Some people are better at languages where you speak slower or quicker. Some people are better at languages with only sounds that their speech impediement/s don’t affect.
A lot of people with language disabilities can use language, but only in weird or specific ways. (See also: autistic people who get referred to as both ‘scientific sounding’ and ‘unusually poetic’.) A lot of us can use language well up to a point where we run out of language energy. A lot of people with language disabilities need specific accomodations to use language, especially things like ‘waiting until someone finishes their sentence before speaking’, ‘understand that accidentally interrupting people is a thing’, ‘put on subtitles’, ‘be willing to paraphrase’.
Also, judgy rude anon, running a blog also not only doesn’t have to involve text or language at all (image/aesthetic blogs do exist), but is so much easier for me to do than a lot of language-related things.
The reason I’m learning other languages is because I can and want toand right now have access to.
