Today I came across a very interesting art project by Mahmoud Tammam. He transforms Arabic words into artworks that depict the meaning of the words.
This is the type of mnemonic that I employ in The Magic Key To The Arabic Alphabet to make learning the script easier and more enjoyable. This works well in the case of individual letters. To memorize whole words, I would recommend using mnemonics based on the sound of the language. E.g. “cat” is “qitt” in Arabic. To recall this meaning, just memorize that the Arabic word “qitt” is close to “kitten”.
In any case, some of the word pictures that Mahmoud Tammam has created are quite beautiful, such as his duck and cat pictures:
I can certainly appreciate the artistic value of the project.
