“Nettle-some” should remind you of “Settle”. Imagine a nettlesome fly that is not allowing to settle and sleep peacefully. The buzzing is throwing you off! Remember thus.
The word “Nebulous” should remind you of “Nebula”, which is a giant cloud of dust and gas in space. Nothing can be seen clearly. Everything is hazy and unclear.
“Zany” rhymes with “Crazy”. Imagine a crazy yet funny friend of yours who loves to party and goes all zany after a couple of shots! Remember thus.
It may sound foolish but imagine yourself in a mess. You need help but no one is helping you out. They politely decline telling you “No, Dear!” (Those self-centred fools!) When you find no one to help you out, you would know that you have hit rock-bottom, your nadir. Thus, remember “Nadir” by equating it with “No, Dear!”
“Reticent” rhymes with “Silent”. Imagine a silent patient in a hospital who is shy about sharing her pain with others. She retains everything silently.
“Refulgent” rhymes with “Detergent”. Imagine yourself cleaning a dirty utensil with detergent to make it refulgent – shine brightly!
Imagine yourself destroying your sister’s prom dress and working vigorously to repair the dress so that she does not hate you for life. This is the only way for you to redress the situation, my friend!
Imagine a strong and persistent wrestler who does not give up. In a tough fight, it may seem that he/ she may give up but you have to think twice before doubting that because he/ she is formidable and resilient and does not easily give up. Remember “Re-doubt-able” thus!
“Redolent” should remind you of “odor” (in American English, or “Odour” in British English”) – distinctive smell of a place or thing. Imagine the smell of a food item that brings back memories from your childhood.
“Recurrent” should remind you “Recurring” – something that is occurring again and again! Alternatively, “RE-CURRENT” should remind you of getting current shocks again and again! Just get it repaired, you!
