mnemonic (the first "m" is silent)
noun

A mnemonic is any learning technique that aids information retention in the human memory.

Commonly encountered mnemonics are often used for lists and in auditory form, such as short poems, acronyms, or memorable phrases.

Their use is based on the observation that the human mind more easily remembers spatial, personal, surprising, physical, humorous, or otherwise "relatable" information, rather than more abstract or impersonal forms of information.

The word "mnemonic" is derived from the Ancient Greek word (mnēmonikos) and is related to Mnemosyne ("remembrance"), the name of the goddess of memory in Greek mythology.
