That's a knowledge problem, not a language problem. Learn more. EG, read
more. Besides the more you learn, the more you want to learn, and life
becomes a whole lot more amusing.

If you are referring to "tip of the tongue" glitches, I know of no way to
reduce or eliminate them. Stress seems to be a factor in producing them - so
maybe if you can relax more? Take a drink or two, maybe? "Wine looseneth the
tongue..."
