Jo is holding Fire!


Jo is holding fire might make a good key phrase for memorizing this character?

My community college is on summer break so I'm going to try to get posts out twice a week using the scheduling function. The morning's mild humidity in Sydney ended in a thunderstorm a little while ago.

I wonder if Mandarin spekaers would have as much trouble pronouncin ghtose initial ng sounds in Viet and Hakka as an Englsih speaker like me. I can get about halfway to a palatal nasal like the Viet nh and at least partly palatize a n but a lot of people just change ng and nh to n! How about you?
