Do tongue twisters help with learning?
Neither nor nor neither can be used with either or or either, whereas neither either...or...or nor neither...nor...nor are either wrong or right, right?
I think so.
While Tolley seems to be up-to-date on the research, I can only speak from personal experience. I found tongue twisters and other mnemonics to be helpful in learning/memorizing complicated facts "in bulk."
During my first two semesters of architectural history, we were required to memorize facts for about 500 buildings each semester. As part of the final exam, we would be shown a picture of a building, and we would have to identify its name, location, style, architect, and year. So I made up little ditties for each. Today, 35 years later, I still recall the ditty when I see certain buildings.
