Associating Peg Words To Improve Your Memory

| Articles | December 13, 2011

The peg word system is used to help a person to remember a list in a specific sequence. However, before you can do this, you need to memorize a roster list of peg words. Generally, there are two major ways to do this. Take a closer look at these methods first, then choose which one you want to use.

Alternatively you can use a little bit of imagination and use both methods. The first method is so easy that anyone can use it. Just use numbers 0 to 10 and relate rhyming words with each of these digits.

0. Weirdo

1. Fun

2. Doe

3. Free

4. Floor

5. Hive

6. Fix

7. Heaven

8. Mate

9. Line

10. Ben

Of course after number 11, you will find it hard to look for rhymes. However, there is still a method where you can expand this system. As an example, you can re-use the peg words by creating a distortion of their versions. In numbers 11-19, you can use the word pegged to 1 to 9, but you should picture each word as burnt: so 10 would be a weirdo who burned the toast, 13 would be black freedom and so on and so forth. For numbers 20 to 29, you can make words for 1 to 9 as hot, for 30 to 39, you can imagine it as cold.

The best method is to recall words for all numbers pegged from 0 to 99 using another system, the number alphabet. This will greatly help you to form a relation without having to recall a laborious array relation with number rhymes. Alternatively, if you can use peg words, you are ensured to get the right number by using consonant and transforming them to numbers.

A longer list is more effective because you will avoid excessive recycling, thus your brain will be less likely to be confused. But, it will take a longer time for you to memorize. However, once you recalled the peg words, you will be benefited by the list permanently, and you don’t need to recall them ever again. Below is an example of peg words for 110 numbers. Just choose memorable word for you. But once you have used it, never dare to change it to avoid confusion.
