    This is very much SIMPLYFYING THINGS, but basically ..

    One half (hemisphere) of your brain deals with VERBAL language

    and the other half deals with WRITTEN language.

    That's why, for example, if someone has had a stroke

    and they lose their ability to talk, they can often still read and write.

    False. It probably is way more complicated than that.

    No, it is either the right or left brain that controls language. If it is the left brain, then the person is right handed. If it is the right brain, then the person is left-handed. Infants do not prefer to use one hand or the other, but by about 18 months, toddlers begin to prefer one or the other hand, as they learn to speak.
