I thought I remember there being a thread like this, but I can’t find one that isn’t archived. So here goes.
Most agree that Kouichi has some inspired mnemonics, but a mnemonic that one comes up with oneself can often be (in my experience) an almost free pass to remembering it. So does anyone have any mnemonics they really like for certain words, but which aren’t official WK mnemonics?
I’ll start with something that stretches the definition of mnemonic: if it helps you remember, post it here! Don’t be put off by semantic debates as to what constitutes a mnemonic.
I like fountain pens, and Nikko is a brand of popular dip pen nibs. 日光 (sunlight), is how Nikko is spelled (and pronounced) if you look it up on amazon.co.jp. Anyone else love finding random connections like that?
