Welcome to the Mnemonicizer, the Mnemonic Device Device. A mnemonic device is a sentence that helps us to memorize a string of words. For example, music students use "Every Good Boy Does Fine" to remember the order of notes on the treble clef. (E, G, B, D, F). Math students use "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally" to remember the order of arithmetic operations (Parentheses, Exponent, Multiply, Divide, Add, Subtract.). But the range of usefulness extends beyond music and math. They are an invaluable resource whenever you are trying to remember something.

To create a mnemonic device, first type in whatever it is you want to remember in the box below. Look at the first letter in each word, and then find that letter in the list below. Click on the arrow to see a list of words that start with that letter. Once the word you like is in the box, click 'Display' and the word will be displayed to your right. If you can think of a word not listed, enter it into the text box and press display. Try to make funny sentences you know you'll remember. Have fun!
