Very useful doing excises methods. Thanks for sharing.
“It is just…” “What?” Everybody may have this similar experience. You are sure that you know the answer of a question, but you just cannot transform what you think to the words. Next time you are caught in this situation, you should know that this is just a psychological phenomenon named tip of the tongue:
Tip of the tongue (TOT or Presque vu, from the French for “almost seen”) phenomenon is the failure to retrieve a word from memory, combined with partial recall and the feeling that retrieval is imminent. The phenomenon’s name comes from the saying, “It’s on the tip of my tongue.”…
This phenomenon is common in the normal life. For example, when you are taking a test and you know the answer of the question, but you just fail to write the answer out with words. You also may have another similar experience. When you recognize your childhood friend in the crowd and plan to say Hello, you may find that you just cannot call out his or her name.
I just come across the term of tip of the tongue by accident when I check my Google Reader.
There are a few scientific explanations on this psychological phenomenon. In addition, there are many factors that could lead to tip of the tongue. Because now I am learning English, I am surprised to find that bilingualism can also increase the occurrence possibility of tip of the tongue. The explanation is that when you express your idea, bilingualism can lead to two different expressing forms, which may stop your ideas from transforming into words.
At last, when you encounter the tip of the tongue next time, it is unnecessary to worry about it. People at different ages, no matter men or women, the differences on the degree, all have the potential to suffer from tip of the tongue. You can completely ignore the tip of the tongue completely if it just happens on you occasionally.
As of the ways to overcome the tip of the tongue, because we cannot predict when it happens, there are no specific ways to overcome it. I think keeping happy and doing some excises always work.
Houttuynia cordata, or H. cordata, has a few Chinese names.
蕺菜: one of its traditional Chinese
岑草: H. cordata’s another traditional name recorded in an ancient Chinese historical book
折根草: one name that we cannot track its origin now
鱼腥草: the most common Chinese name of H. cordata; means fish smell grass translated literally, due to H. cordata’s smell of fish
猪鼻孔: means pig’s nostril, due to the shape of the H. cordata’s leaves
H. cordata has a queer taste. People either deeply fall in love with it or deeply hate it the first time they taste it. Many Chinese people may never have eaten H. cordata. However, they may take the H. cordata troche when they catch cold. In addition, H. cordata is widely used in making medicine and in traditional Chinese medicine. Besides its medical value, H. cordata is eaten by people in some places of China as a kind of vegetable.
H. cordata has a strong fishy smell. However, people in southwest area of China like to eat this weed and its root as everyday vegetable. To tell the truth, H. cordata tastes bad if not added other seasoning. Except the people in southwest China, people in other places of China would not eat H. cordata raw. People in other places would process H. cordata to remove its strange smell before eating it.
Until now, I still cannot understand why some people like the foods with strange smell, just like H. cordata. Maybe just different people have different tastes.
Sea breeze confides the dreams of the old captain beside my ears
White cloud drifting over the mountain, to find its home
Sleeping lotus in dream wakes up in the light rain and shows its sweet smile
I make a kite from youth and fly it
Seashells climb up to the beach to see how large the world is
Lepidoptera expects to own one pair of beautiful wings tomorrow
Rivulet lies in the arms of forest and sings the song composed by spring
I knit the time and tide into a piece of picture
Dream is the wing of butterfly; youth is the heaven of flying
Let go of the string of the kite; paint the love on the face of time and tide
Heart is growing force, like the wings of butterfly
The singing becomes loud and sonorous facing the strong winds
Butterfly flies, just like running in the wind in childhood
The rainbow in dream is farther than the sea and higher than the sky
Butterfly flies, to the castle in the future
Open the skylight of the dream, growing would become fast and glorious.
I have been blogging on WordPress.com for about half of a year. This post would be the sixtieth post and I would like to post a lyric and poem here, which depicts the dream of childhood. In addition, I am moved every time I read it. Hope you can get something from my poem.
One day when I was surfing on the Yahoo Answers, I found a question by a 13-year-old child: How to stop creepy guys sitting near you on the train? All the people may have some similar unpleasant experience besides meeting creepy people on the bus, train or subway. However, if we need to take the train, we cannot avoid some unpleasant things. What we can do is to deal with unpleasant situations on the train in the right way.
As of this child’s question, many people give her different suggestions.
look tough, annoyed. carry a pocket knife!!! yu might need it! if a creeper gets closer to yu “accidentally” drop it so he sees it nd backs off. nd if they talk to yu or whatever dont talk back, just be like “whatever” DONT ACT SCARED OR EASY TO CAPTURE lol
I think you should ask your parents to arrange for you top use the bus. You seem to have the bizarre opinion that every adult male is “creepy”. You are going to have a very difficult adult life
Oh wow same thing happens to me, especially when its crowded, guy stands in front of me with his crotch in my face, and sits across of me and doesn’t stop staring like do I have a bug or dirt in my face, I just roll my eyes, I’m not friendly to creeps. I encounter a lot of weird subway riders everyday and all I do is ignore now that I’m so used to it. A bunch of teenagers filming and jumping all up and down the train, pole dancing etc, desperately trying to get everyone’s attention, sitting next to people and introducing themselves, jackasses. #eyerolls.
In addition, some suggestions make me LOL.
pick your nose, and give them the evil stare if they look at you.
Pfft, just make really ugly faces . I put my glasses on and go crosseyed …. nobody ever sits with me . 😀
If they sit by you, start picking your nose and rubbing it in the window. works everytime…
Oh that’s easy just be fat, Fat chicks are just plain off putting
Eat eggs for breakfast and fart on the train
It is surely unsuitable for such a little child to take the train alone. I advise that he should tell her parents his fears or take the bus or school bus instead. Good luck to that child.
Sometimes, when we encounter unpleasant people or things on the train, we just have to ignore them or move to a new seat or place. On the other side, bus, train and subway are public places, we should pay attention to our manners and don’t disturb other people. In addition, nice people always help the elderly, the children and the disable on the bus.
Besides, the unpleasant experience on the bus, we never know who and what we would encounter. Maybe we could encounter some interesting things on the bus, train or subway.
