Take a word
And say it ten times.
Each time concentrating more and more
On each annunciated syllable.
Say it ten more times, concentrating even harder on each letter.
Do it until the validity of the word doesn’t even make sense
And the word is no longer a word to you…
Until the next time you use it.
