Memory and rhymes
- a verbal mnemonic that helps us remember information. You probably use
rhymes all the time without realising. At the end of a month, many people
can be heard humming the rhyme 'Thirty days hath September, April, June and
November' in order to work out how many days in that month. It would be
difficult to remember the length of each month without such a rhyme. Rhymes
are old and useful tricks to remember information more effectively.
