Re: you ever try mnemonics?
that is a great idea. i have tried that with a few words in the flashcard book where the mnemonic device was apparent to me. the one that comes to mind right now is "impunity" - it means "immune to punishment" and i can just kind of see both the words "immune" and "punishment" in it. i don't know if that makes much sense, but it does to me so i roll with it. now if only i can come up with 500 mnemonic devices for all the vocabulary words i don't know yet from my book in the span of five days. oh, i give up.

also, i had no idea you were dyslexic. i record books for the dyslexic on monday nights! this is how we can scam a free copy of that book i taped with the sex scene in it. also, i apologize belatedly for any tasteless dyslexia jokes i may have undoubtedly made in the past in relation to said readings. i'm a douche.

good luck mnemonicizing - it helps! it also doesn't have to make sense to anyone else but you, so go for it.

don't worry about dyslexic jokes, i think they are hysterical - eddie izzard did a whole bit on them the last time i saw him - "why is it that the word that describes this horrible condition has like 17 spellings, and is pretty much impossible for someone who is dyslexic to come up with? the condition should be called 'duh' or 'wha' or something simple man! dyslexia, and all its variants use more than half the goddamn scrabble tiles! it is a killer scrabble word through - if you ever threw it down against a dyslexic kid, they'd kill you."
