Do words ever randomly seem weird to you?
    #3816991 - 02/22/05 03:28 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

It happens to me, all of a sudden a word will just seem weird. Like it just all of a sudden seems to sound weird, and/or the spelling seems funny. Just happened to me with the word zero. I typed it and was looking at it and thought it was a weird word. I was looking at the spelling and it seemed odd. Now I'm looking at it and it no longer seems weird, this happens with me from time to time. How about you?

Yes, that happens to me.

Usually it ends up looking like the spelling is funny in my brain.

Yeah, sometimes I will be writing something and then think its a funny word, but then be not sure if I am spelling it correctly.

Yeah it does happen. The words which every now and then seems strange to me are usually simple words like dwell and bubble.

If i think of a word over and over in my mind asking "what the fuck has this word got to do with its meaning?"

.. It soon looses its meaning and i never use it again lol.

Getting sentimental as fuck spillin' guts to you
We just met
But I think I'm in love with you
But you're on it too
So you tell me you love me too

It happens to me all the time, it usually happens with 1 or 2 syllable words like "out" or "loud"

I love the part in Black Sheep (or is it Tommy Boy?) when Chris Farley and David Spade are high on nitrous and they're like "limit, that's one of those weird words! limit... limit! limit!"

hell ya, all the time. you can make it happen willingly if you try.
IMO ( :tongue:) this happens when somehow you make a disconnection in your brain between the word itself (which is a label) and the meaning that the language has given to the word.

zero just doesn't mean zero anymore. zero is a word made up of letters, and zero is the number that comes before 1, its really void, nothingness.

this has got everything to do with the shroom experience and spirituality  :mushroom2: :cool:

It's because the english language has more exceptions than it does rules, so spelling is more about memorization than anything.

That happens to me. If I just keep looking at or thinking of a word over and over it eventually makes no sense.

So true. The whole "I before E except after C" thing always throws me off. Its a bullshit rule that breaks itself. I still spell those words wrong. Like 'wield' is correct 'wierd' is not! WTF!

My statement is far from wrong. Spelling in english is more about memorization than anything.

'i' before 'e' except after 'c', for example.

"thier" (is a name) and "concieve" but then there is "height" and "their" (the word). Hmmm.
