ni ki – diary, journal

日記 にっき


sounds like “need key”


just think of your diary padlocked shut, so you NEED a KEY to open it right? remember, the “sounds like” is supposed to remind you of the key sounds of the word, NEED KEY will bring you to NI KI. if you expect to have perfect mnemonic sound key words then you will really cut yourself down on usable mnemonics. you want to try and make mnemonics that will serve to remind you of the word, not a exact sound for sound match (though when it does happen, don’t complain…). if it sounds like this won’t work at it will be confusing, trust me, it won’t. try it with this word, if you say it aloud a few times, even though its NEED KEY, you’ll know that that is just reminding you of the real word, NI KI.


btw, ni ki is used in blog entries, like “diary/journal entry”.

紅葉 (こうよう)

sounds like “go yo”

i thought this would be a nice word to learn since it would be nice to see some color outside. it means “autumn colors“, or basically the color of the changing leaves.

you have a friend, and he keeps complaining about everything, school, work, how much he hates music, how much he hates having to wake up early every morning and collect chicken eggs, etc. but one thing he always complains about that really gets on your nerves is how much he loves the RED AUTUMN LEAVES, but how he never has time to go see them in the park.

one day you are just completely sick of him talking about going to see the leaves in the park, and all the reasons why he can’t go, that you yell “ENOUGH ALREADY, JUST GO YO!” Continue Reading gouyou – autumn colors…
