In this article, the writer examines the tip-of-the-tongue (TOT) phenomenon. The writer explains that this is the phenomenon in which individuals report being unable to recall a specific word or target answer, but is able to produce generic recall responses that share semantic and phonological characteristics with each other and with the target word.

From the Paper:

"Existing literature on the subject suggests that the brain processes semantic information by first identifying lexical characteristics and then using that information to narrow its final word choice down to the target answer. The conditions under which this does not occur, the TOT phenomenon, are the focus of this study."
