When the point is reached to where a vocab word, kanji, etc. can be recalled from recognition rather than a mnemonic, is it recommended to continue studying the mnemonic to make sure it can still be recalled that way, or should it be dropped so that the word can be recalled from recognition the next time. I’m asking this because I know that once a person is able to recall from recognition rather than the mnemonic, the interval between when they see that item again is probably going to double. So basically, the first time you’re able to recognize it without using the mnemonic would mean that that way of recalling it isn’t as strong as your ability to recall it from the mnemonic, which could cause the person to forget the meaning/reading the next time around (especially since the interval is much longer than before). Just curious what people’s thoughts are here, based on experience, etc. I’d figure that going over the mnemonic would be the right way to go, but I’d prefer getting rid of that the more I’ve seen the item.
Hopefully, my question is clear enough here.
