If you say something over and over again - like the words I Love You - at first it sounds as if it has some meaning. But after saying it 10 times over again, you start to hear the words individually and the meaning underlying the words comes to question. After 100,000 times you might think that the speaker is insane and yet, even though the language has been compromised, the speech that produces the words is still producing feeling, and feeling is capable of telling you something.
