Have you ever looked at a common English word for too long to the point it no longer looks like an English word?

This happens to me occasionally, and was wondering if anybody else experiences this?!

    It has happened.  Also sometimes look at words and think they are not spelled correctly even when they are, and I know that they are.  They still look wrong for some reason.  The brain is an odd thing sometimes.

    Yeah, kind of like saying the same word over and over so many times that it becomes a non-word.

    Yes, it's happened a few times where a common word looks alien. Weird stuff.
