Tongue Tied

You know that feelingtongue you get when you’re trying to think of a word to use, but it’s just on the tip of your tongue?  There is no English word for that feeling.  My guess is that the only people who have a need for such a word are people who have problems remembering words to begin with.

I theorize that many words have been created over history for this feeling, and then subsequently forgotten by their creators, as the only people who need to use this word are people who are having problems remembering words.
This is an etymological black hole.  A place that you only need to find after you are already lost.
