How do I create memorable stories using radicals such as second, line, and radicals with no meaning?

Are you having this problem?:

When I plug an example character into a program that decomposes into its radicals, all four components seem to be recognized as radicals.

Example: One of the example hanzis for the radical 土 is 地. When this is plugged into a program that decomposes the character into its radicals: 地 => 土 (earth), 乚 (second), ㇆ (N/A), 丨 (line).

We would strongly recommend two things:

  • Assign images to radicals that don’t mean anything. For Gabe for example, ㇆ means ‘scissors’
  • Constantly create new radicals that are combinations of old radicals. Ideally, you want two images to remember 1 word. So absolutely, 也 should be a new radical.
