Even if you don’t know the words, or you’ve got a phrase stuck in your head, and you just know the words are wrong, but you can’t help repeating the phrase over and over, and over, while the notes keep playing in your mind.

If conversations about Theory of Relativity or String Theory, or Regression Analysis make you want to curl up in a corner and go to sleep, then the Simple English Wikipedia is your answer.
