I guess we're getting into the semantics of the word
No, I wasn't addressing the tactile detection of vibrations (like putting your hand on a railroad track - which is akin to what deaf people "feel" when music is played). My post is about the detection of vibrations by the auditory nerve, the definition of "hearing"....
