“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!
“Re-CUPER-ate” should remind you of “SUPER”. Yes! Imagine yourself suffering from some illness when suddenly, after having a miracle drug, you start feeling super! You have thus recuperated from the illness (or a loss a business – whichever may be the case)! Yaay!
