(Wow it's been a while since I've made a blog entry. @_@; I have to get back into it. :})

If we imagine this as a very simplified process of coming up with things to say:

[think it]->[decide whether to say it]->[say it]

The mechanisms each by themselves are fascinating. Thinking of something to say is an interesting area, encompassing cognitive linguistics, neuroscience, psychology, and all the other fun brain-related topics. The final part involves all the signals...

Think of a random word

Think of a random word.

I thought of "mosquito".

I wonder, what are the thought processes involved in coming up with a random number or word. It can't be truly random - I'd watched an old episode of Family Guy that used the word "mosquito" a few times in one of the scenes, which was the thing that prompted me to think of mosquito.

So how does the brain drag a memory up for this "random" word? What processes does it go through to choose this word?...
