How to Remember (Xia Shyeah) Chinese Words - Many Homomnems

- Original Art, Howard T. Chiam, 2014 -

- Chinese homonyms*, mnemonics**, and anemones*** -

A positive way to learn Chinese words that are easily confused because they sound the same (homonyms):  put together those words that sound the same to make a memorable story (mnemonics).  Paint a picture with their available tones.  Don't be scared of homonyms, let them help you remember multiple root words at the same time. (See the original post of this series for more information or explanations.)
