Thread: phrase please

  1. #1

    Post phrase please

    What is the word used to decribe something?
    i.e.) never eat shredded wheat decribes the compass directions.

    I would like to learn the word used to describe this as well as learn one to remember the planets line up, if you can. thank you

    It's a mnemonic.
