Word on the Tip of Your Finger?

Many of us have said, “It’s on the tip of my tongue… I know it. I can’t remember the word I’m looking for.”
It happens to signers, too. This study indicates that it’s the brain’s misplacing of a memory — not a phonetic or vocalization issue. Deaf Signers Feel the Words on the Tip of Their Fingers explores this deeper by comparing American sign language with British sign language.
Fascinating read.
