What is a mnemonic device?
Mnemonics (pronounced “ne-mon’-ics”) assist the memory by using a system of rhymes, rules, phrases, diagrams, acronyms and other devices – all to help you learn, remember and memorize names, dates, facts and figures. Mnemonic devices help you to memorize. Most mnemonics work by letting you remember a word, phrase or poem, which in turn stands for more complicated information to remember. For instance by remembering ‘ROY G. BIV’ you can reproduce the order and colors of the rainbow.
