i think that would do,but the main problem is,that it's used too frequently.
but if used any other variation it won't burn in to my skull.
analogy to this would be: take pencel without ink and try to write S on the paper. the more you write S the clealer it shows until you rub a hole in the paper.
that's what to many of the same word do with my brain. especially if the word is not commonly spoken.
