Actions Colours

 Contents..

With foreign vocabulary memorisation, there is the idea that one of the 1000 men or 1000 womwn can be imagined doing an action to an obect (recipient). The action is a spelling clue and the recipient is a spelling clue too: a prompt for spelling the word in the foreign language.

It makes sense to me that the colour used in an action can be a clue about how the action and the recipient of the action are to be interpreted. With action colour taking on this new importance, I want to have a rule that backdrops are not a choice of colours but a standard white. It is a shame because I had thought that backdrop colour could mean something too.

Note: If I imagine a postman then I can also make an action and recipient visual scene about the postman; so I can make stories beyond the 1000 men and 1000 women. And I think I mentioned before that, if the recipient is an object like an avocado then the person doing the action and the action can be the spelling prompt of the inanimate object.


Here is a table of how action colour can assist interpretation of a story into a spelling:
