Hi, brand-new user here. I’ve just started today and wanted to ask about the story for the radical meaning 9.
English is not my mother tongue, so the one offered “looks like NI which is the beginning of NINE” , doesn’t really work for me and visual cues work better for me.
the radical 九 look to me like someone kneeling in prayer, so the mnemonic I came up with is:
“man kneeling in prayer pressing down NINE fingers”.
Does it add too much detail in your opinion? Is it a good idea to come up with my own stuff so soon?
