Earworms are songs that get stuck in your head.
What are words that, seemingly by chance, pop into your brain and sit there for a while?
Is there a word for that?
Triumvirate floated up in my mind a little bit ago, and for no good reason at all.
I'd like to know what subconscious goings-on are responsible for such an impractical and seldom-used word getting jammed up in my cogs. It's hard to think about any subject without triumvirate trying to tie in.
