I came across the phrase semantic satiation and thought it was interesting enough to share with you. I'd never heard of it before.
Semantic satiation is a psychological phenomenon in which repetition causes a word or phrase to temporarily lose meaning for the listener, who then perceives the speech as repeated meaningless sounds. Extended inspection or analysis (staring at the word or phrase for a lengthy period of time) in place of repetition also produces the same effect.
If you'd like to learn more about this odd circumstance, then hop on over to my source, Wikipedia.
My mother used to repeat the same words repeatedly and repeatedly repeat things she heard on the news.
Her speech often sounded as if she were an "adult" on the Charlie Brown/Peanuts TV specials. Wah Wah Wah Wah Wah: she was convinced she was using words but I only heard noise.
