the mind's ear

The imaginative capability to create or recall sound within one's mind; the part of the mind that experiences imagined or recalled sound. (An allusion to the "mind's eye," which is likewise responsible for mental imagery.) I can still hear in my mind's ear the sweet laughter of my daughter when she was a child.
