"My very photogenic mother died in a freak accident (picnic, lightning) when I was three"

I keep thinking that's a mnemonic.

À la "My very excellent mother just sat under new pines"? I was given it in third grade, I think.

My favorite mnemonic is "A kind samurai told Naomi how my yak ran wild."

That is a pretty great mnemonic. What's it for?

With what does it go? ETA ah, upthread. Cool!

ETA2 Korean hangeul dictionaries use a somewhat different order, but the first few are the same. Makes sense given etiology.

Without the tense ones, ㄱㄴㄷㄹㅁㅂㅅㅇㅈㅊㅋㅌㅍㅎ, which comes to this in kiddie form: ga na da la ma ba sa [ng] ja cha ka ta pa ha. The last five are the aspirates, most with a non-aspirate sib earlier in the sequence; the tense ones accompany their normal sibs. Thus the full set is ㄱㄲㄴㄷㄸㄹㅁㅂㅃㅅㅆㅇㅈㅉㅊㅋㅌㅍㅎ

Footnotes:
1. There used to be two graphs that looked like ㅇ. Now there is one. The surviving one is syllable-final only: 방 is b-a-ng, a room.
2. The letters have sort of reduplicative names that I tend to forget--ㅁ is mieum (two syllables, miŭm)--but "a" is the first vowel and ga na da is how little kids learn to read.

Exactly! It's such a vivid sentence and yet it feels as though it means something else.

I enjoyed the frantic clouds roiling around in that Grand Canyon-shaped cup; that was excellent.
