The topic is she

"She" is one of these words which are hard to express through unambiguous and uniqe symbols, because it is a subjective concept and not an objective, um, object. Since is not a component of other characters, we also do not need to find a symbol for "she". Instead, as in any other language, "she" is so frequent that you will learn this word by immersion.

Anyhow, the picture I painted is helpful to me in that it reinforces in my brain the connections of the excavator to , Tecumseh to the pronunciation initial "t-", the location "in front of the Adziogol lighthouse" to the pronunciation final "-a1", and Pippi Longstocking to .
