Sometimes it's meaningless right at the start and pretends to mean something through repetition.

The compulsion to repeat the same word over and over again is called cataphasia. This remains the only fact I have ever learned from VH1's Pop-Up Video.

People at work made fun of me when I asked them if any of them had ever said a word so many times it lost all meaning and felt alien to say. The main word that I had problems with was "knob" . I would say this word over and over until it just didn't make sense. WHO'S CRAZY NOW, biatchES!!!???
