I’ve been for the past month reviewing the book Remembering the Kanji as to brush up my kanji. Since most of the reviews I’m doing are using only japanese, I thought using also japanese keywords for going through the book this time could be made.
Indeed most of the Kanji have a word with which I can make a clear connection and use it as keyword for reviewing, but then there’re those Kanji that simply I don’t see that often, some of those are easy to write, so even with a flimsy connection I can remember them easily enough ( for example: 旭・辻) but then there are the ones like 幌・諧 , where taking the radicals apart they would be ok to digest, but otherwise, not having a super common word they tend to be mixed in the pool of similar characters.
So I though what about mnemonics.
In the spirit of using japanese (and given I’m not putting much emphasis on the keywords or names Heisig gives to the “primitives”) I’ve been learning the name for the radicals too (which aren’t that many). So I was wondering if anyone know of such resource that uses even simple mnemonics that connect the japanese radicals with the kanji… sort of WK or Heising?
I won’t be creating a whole system like WK in japanese for reviewing, is just on those particular kanji that I’m having trouble, so it might worth the shot …
The reason behind this is mainly writing practice related to calligraphy. I will see kanji as example of some style of character or a given trace without further context, so is been different than when learning kanji for reading purposes.
