Phonetic Figurative Codes

Phonetic figurative codes are used for quick and very precise memorization of pronunciation of new foreign words.

Phonetic figurative codes can intersect with other figurative codes since the memorization using them is temporary. When word pronunciation is fixed in the long-term memory, figurative codes that provide a hint to pronunciation become useless. In order to memorize pronunciation of a new foreign word, a combination of three different methods is used, one of which is the phonetic figurative codes method.

Examples of the choice of words:

Japanese

(I) Ink
(E) Elbow
(O) Ocean
(KA) KAyak
(KI) KIosk
(SU) SUgar
(NA) NApkin
(MU) MUstard
