Kanji Hacks 漢字の覚え方

How to memorize kanji so they stick

化(ば・ける、ば・かす、カ、ケ)

Meaning:change

Components: 亻(person), 匕 (spoon)

My hack: I remember spoon as a side view of a baby since that is what it looks like to me, so for this one I think of a spoon-fed baby and a person and how quickly one changes from one to the other.

丁(チョウ、テイ)

Meaning: town, street

My hack: it looks like a T intersection of 2 streets in a little town.
