    Hi, I recently purchased the Spelfabet mnemonic alphabet. I understand that the keyword for the voiceless th is thunder, but I can’t figure out the keyword for the voiced th. Could you help me out? Thanks

      Hi Margaret, the second page of the Embedded Picture Mnemonics file contains a table that lists all the sounds and words. The voiced ‘th’ represents “themselves”. We originally had ‘path’ and ‘weather’ for the voiced and voiceless ‘th’ mnemonics but for this version I decided to try to use words with the sound in initial position wherever possible. It’s very hard to find other initial-voiced-th words that it’s possible to draw a picture of! All the best, Alison
