So, you know that phenomenon where you read a certain set of words and hear those words, in your head, in a very specific voice? Good news everyone!
comes to mind immediately, as does Best.< insert thing here >.Ever.
Is there a word for this? Have there been any particularly interesting articles or papers written on it (or posts on the blue)? I'm interested in it, I suppose, as a cultural phenomenon: there are subsets of our culture who get this for specific words and some that don't.
