Ted Lasso Wiki

Semantic satiation was, in the words of Coach Beard, when "words become a sound". Ted frequently suffered from the condition, which involved him getting so caught up in the sound of a word that he temporary lost sight of the meaning of that word.

He exhibited it one morning when talking with Rebecca, where he got tripped up on the sound of the word plan, particularly as her pronunciation differed from his. In the same conversation, he also bumped on the word flan, whose phonetics were similar.

Later, Lasso tripped Beard up on the pronunciation of aces.
