Improvement to Group reading mnemonic for 組


#1

The meaning is about sewing the top hats together with thread to form a group. This is a good mnemonic, using the two radicals.

The reading is そ、and misses the obvious. Just use the ‘sew’ already introduced in the meaning. Sew and so sound almost the same.


#2

The problem is that sew is already used as a mnemonic for そう, so it would be inconsistent and confusing to have it for そ.


#3

This messed up the obvious mnemonic for as well…

OTOH, this potential confusion hasn’t stopped some other such mnemonics from being given…


#5

maybe, hadn’t thought of it like that. I don’t really stick to them as rigidly as that.
