Forgetting Language
Forgetting Language
2016

I had a bilingual nightmare, where I forgot my native language. I could sense the meanings of words, but I couldn’t remember the words. At first, the fear of forgetting made me feel like I was choking, but I slowly started realising that I was thinking without the use of words. It seemed like Greek words were pairing up with their equivalent English words, neutralising each other like protons and electrons. I wonder if all speaking animals can forget language.
