Word associaton really works for some Japanese words!

一日中 - ichi nichi jyuu

whether the romanization of the above jyuu should be written as

1. jyuu - 中


2. ju -

3. ju^ - the ^ carat used as the long vowel sound.

美人 - びじん (Bijin)- A babe, a beautiful lady, lit. beautiful person The
first kanji in this kanji compound is the kanji for utsukushii that is read
as Bijin (pronounced bee-jeen). Lot of space in the mouth when pronouncing
this i or the bi or ji or ee to bee or jeen; as in kanojo wa bijin da ne!

人数 ninzu - literally a person number, a count of the people, a census,
population; as in ninzu ga oi.

The word for peacock in Japanese is easy to remember if you had ever seen
the T.V. show Cojak. I always related that show Cojak to the Japanese word
kujaku or peacock. Cojak and kujaku are pronounced very nearly the same.
You want to build your vocabulary from a strong base not a weak one. Through
this and other such cognitives to help me remember all the words in Japanese
even though, I am past the threshold of ever possessing the tongue of a
native, nor the understanding of one. But still in all the endeavors which
ever did stir tal wilkinfield I want to marry her. I hope she is still available.

Strong word associations like these are the keys to long lasting memory.
Strong visual cues, an infinite possibility. Fibonacci88. I have never forgotten
the word for peacock, kujaku, since I first put to it my imagery and unique
way of identifying with a known word and fudging the pronunciation of the
words a little bit and before long, you will have that 6000 word vocabulary..
. but can you wield it correctly? How do you know you are doing it right?
