    "Now what do the words of this language signify?---What is supposed to show what they signify, if not the kind of use they have?"

    Yes, I agree that language is primarily learned by context where pretty much everyone does it. That said, high Ne when honed by Ti-dom, can create a metaphorical potpourri. Delicious!

    The subconscious is incredible at retaining information, even if your conscious mind doesn't remember.

    Since you are saying this happens while talking/writing, you have already learned the word and just don't distinctly remember learning it. You probably read it in a book, intuited the meaning by context, and it settled into your brain dormant until it popped up when needed. Happens to me all the time and I am a big reader. I think it is only intuition when you are picking up its meaning. If you are using it, it means it's already in your brain.

    you heard it used somewhere, guessed its meaning, and stored it away.

    What you mean is, "Sort of like knowing before actually explicitly looking it up." Intuition is a form of learning!! So is looking it up.

    I get this all the time when I am writing. It's like I hear/read the word used within several contexts and it becomes engrained into my subconscious. Even if I have never used it in real life conversation, the word with the correct meaning usually pops into my head.

    Sure, though I tend to look them up shortly afterwards to confirm.

    The worst is when you intuit a word's meaning to be different from its actual meaning.
    Ti = 19 [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Te = 16[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Ne = 16[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Fi = 15 [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Si = 12 [][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Ni = 12 [][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Se = 11[][][][][][][][][][][]
    Fe = 0
