icon for semantic satiation

Have you ever reread a word several times and found that the word began to lose meaning?  Although it is a familiar word, you get confused. Scientists call this phenomenon semantic satiation. When you say a word, your brain finds the semantic information for it and connects the

two together. If you repeat said word in quick secession , your brain looses the ability to connect the two less and less each time you repeat it.
