Mnemonics are devices to help us remember (aide memoire or memory aide). They come in many varieties and flavours, and can aid memorisation of many types of information. This section concentrates on mnemonics related to words and numbers.

In our what are mnemonics? section, you'll discover more about mnemonics and the various types that exist.

Where there is something to remember, mnemonics can be put to use. You will find them in every discipline from music, medicine, biology, and electronics to spelling, physics, geography, and remembering telephone numbers! For examples of all of these, take a look at our mnemonics page.

Mnemonics can even be used to remember numbers, and we have a special number mnemonics section where you will discover methods to remember telephone numbers, or the number pi to great accuracy! But of course there's not room for everything on this site. If you want to explore mnemonics further, or need a comprehensive book to assist you with spelling, or learning for your exams, then visit the mnemonics books section of our online wordplay books section.
