No, the spoken word can have greater resonance. To issue utterance becomes a creative act. "In the beginning was the word" and all that. And I find sometimes with certain poetry where the rhythm of the breaths is built in to the text, the effect can be tantric. But it's best not to force others to be an unwilling audience when you do it.

When a kid in school learned especially when you have to memorize something, use all the senses you can,

Read out loud
Listen to your voice
Write it down
Re-read with your fingers running under the words

Maybe not but it would drive me nuts if you were sitting next to me :)

Not if you are 4.
If you are 40, it is weird.

I read out loud to my husband all the time. He enjoys it. I think the word..the old good book actually should be sung. Call me nutty but I think it is great. Find someone you can read out loud to and bless them. hf

It only feels wierd if you're functionally illiterate and are embarassed at the thought of reading aloud.

I you feel anxiety about reading aloud, then quietly take an adult literacy course and tell your peers it's poker night on those nights or something. Just don't go through the rest of your life as an illiterate.

Re: Is it weird to read out loud?
No. When you are a kid you read out loud to hear what you have interpreted from the written word. It encourages a process of sub-vocalization, which gives a child a better opportunity to learn to pronounce new words.

When you are older you read out loud or sub-vocalized when learning new things such as a part in a play or a lecture.

And of course you always read out load when giving a lesson or lecture. So serious answer to serious question is "No, it is not weird".

I too am a poet and concur. When reading poetry you need someone who can project their voice. They need to be clear and without distracting accent, unless the accent is a part of the work. The words must be read with correct cadence and meter. They also need to be be to read what is there. I have come across some people who no matter how much they are drilled and practiced will see the word "axe" when the text says "ask".

As to practice before an unwilling audience - that is what your bedroom is for.
