Definition

A mnemonic is a learning technique whose purpose is to make it easier to remember a fact.

It works by making an association with an easily-remembered or commonly-known fact, and translating that fact into that which needs to be learned.


Linguistic Note

The word mnemonic is of Greek origin, and pronounced without the first m as ne-mo-nic.
