Spread your fingers. This is the thumb, this is the index finger, this is the middle finger, this is the ring finger, and this is the little finger. How many finger are there in your right hand? Five! That's right. There are five fingers in your right hand, so #5 means the letter l (From number mnemonics)

-----------------------------------------

Is this explanation clear? Would you check the use of articles etc?

    Spread your fingers. This is the thumb, this is the index finger, this is the middle finger, this is the ring finger, and this is the little finger. How many fingers are there on your right hand? Five! That's right. There are five fingers in your right hand, so #5 means the letter l (From number mnemonics)

    I don't know where that last sentence ends -- before or after the parentheses?

    I also don't understand equating the number 5 with the letter l. You'll have to explain that one to me!!

    Also, that second use of "in" needs to be "on" in the last sentence.

  • English Expressions -

    You need a semi-colon after "This is the -----; "
    The expression is - There are five fingers ON your right hand (then use a semi-colon) ; so #5 means the letter (put I into either italics or "I")

    Thank you for your help.

    There are five fingers on your right hand, so #5 means the letter l. (From number mnemonics)

    As the finger looks like the letter l, in number mnemonics, l stands for #5.

    1 means t or d
    2 means n
    3 means m
    4 stands for 4
    Look at the word 'four.'
    The last word is 'r.'
    5 represents l
    6 means sibilants except s or z.
    7 is k or g
    8 is f or v. Look at the Italic script or cursive type of f. It looks like 8.
    9 means p or b.
    0 means s or z. Zero begiins with z.

    Exmple words

    'Name' means 23.
    'Moon' stands for 32.
    'Rose' represents 40.
    'Lion' is 52.

    -------------------------------
    OK. I have written someting about number mnemonics. If some explanation is not natural, would you let me know them? I have to explain mnemonics in English before other people.

    I guess I understand what you're putting together. I've always used mnemonics as a way to remember a phrase or formula or process.

    Roy G. Biv = the colors of the spectrum (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet)
    [There's actually an art gallery in Palm Springs, California, by the name of Roy G. Biv!]

    PEMDAS = order of operations in math (parentheses, exponents, multiply, divide, add, subract)

    FANBOYS = the seven coordinating conjunctions in English (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so)

    I know these aren't the only ones, and I know that people make up new ones whenever they need to study or memorize something new. Mnemonics are fascinating, I think.
