Hard of hearing sounds onerous to me. It’s simply not good English if you will. Something can be bodily hard like a rock, a piece of wood, or even a turd. It can be “hard” to learn a new language or do math, but what the heck is hard of hearing suppose to mean? Are you saying that someone doesn’t hear well? So just say that then. I prefer deaf myself, that’s right I simply don’t hear sounds whether it be voices or noises. I don’t hold it against you to speak the truth. Its my life I know it.
