E for envelope

| | Comments (4)

I was taught that the way to distinguish between stationary (not moving) and stationery (office supplies) was that stationery has an e for envelope.

I also learned that it one collar and two socks were necessary, as a way of remembering that necessary has one c and two ss.

I think these handy ways of remembering things are useful. What others are there?

I learned a 'piece of pie' to avoid confusing it with 'peace'.

When confused by "desert" or "dessert", I just remember which I would rather have two of.

That's brilliant- I'll use it in class from now on. It's a perfect way to remember it. Thank you. ;-)

I find it useful to add an additional line to the stationery/stationary mnemonic: 'E is for envelope, A is for at rest'
