    Ok, ID with it's limitless amount of expertise could maybe help me. I'd like to know the name of the people who taste words. I don't mean, you say strawberry and they taste strawberry, I mean uke you could say something like bus, and they get a taste of lemons in their mouth, It's a psychological thing, but i'd like to know the name of it.

    thats not what i mean, I mean that every word in their vocabualry (or most) has a unuque taste attatched to it, so steak wouldn't taste like steak, it could taste of bubblegum etc
