A fellow synaesthete, welcome to the club!๐Ÿ˜‰ Weekdays and months do have colours for me, but ones which correspond with the letters/numbers within them.

Furthermore, even though every letter has its own hue, certain specific ones dominate within words.

Letโ€™s take โ€œMarchโ€ as an example. โ€œMโ€ is dark green, โ€œaโ€ is red, โ€œrโ€ is an even darker green, โ€œcโ€ is yellow, and โ€œhโ€ is a light whitish-grey colour. Nevertheless, the word โ€œMarchโ€ to me is dark green and red with slight yellowish undertones, meaning that โ€œmโ€ and โ€œaโ€ dominate over โ€œcโ€.

Synaesthesia is a wonderfully diverse phenomenon and a testament to the marvel that is the human brain. Hearing the experiences of other synaesthetes is always fascinating to me so thank you for sharing your own experience!
