I cannot even imagine being afraid of words. If you are a verbophobic person and your reading this I applaud your bravery and will keep it short because I know this is hard and scary for you. I imagine going most places is hard for a verbophobe because words are literally everywhere. I would imagine that it is fairly hard to avoid running into words in today's literate world.
This is not only a fear that is hard for me to understand but, to me, it is also a very sad fear. Imagine being too afraid to read a good book. Plus, how would you ever know that stars are just like US unless you can read US magazine? Also, I bet you'd get a lot of parking tickets because you would be too afraid to read those complicated parking rules signs. One positive would be that McDonalds and other delicious fast food restaurants embrace this fear and allow you to order your fattening treats with just pictures and numbers. And people think that McDonalds doesn't care.
