Another possibility is that language is inextricably intertwined with thought in the left hemisphere but that there is language-independent thought in the right hemisphere with functional separation between the two systems.

Under the thinking-for-speaking hypothesis, language would habitually influence all thought, although the two would be functionally separate. In our hypothesis, categorical processing takes place in parallel with perceptual processing and both outputs are immediately available, but increased weighting might habitually be given to the categorical system.
