Confetti from outer space

Why the confetti? "to have" is an concept so abstract that you can't paint a unique image of it. Therefore I chose to go with the appearance of to find a mnemonic image. The scissors are hovering over the moon ready to cut, so when they cut, what's left? Confetti. Thus, in all the characters that appears in like , , , , and so on, confetti will be seen, so that we may remember to include when writing these characters.

In any event, is such a frequent character that you'll always know how to pronounce it and what it means; that's why I didn't even include the meaning in the mnemonic. But to remember how to write it, recall that "y" is for Maud Younger (notice the "y" in "Younger") and that "ou3" is for "inside the Louvre" (notice the "ou" in "Louvre"). Hopefully, upon imagining Maud Younger in the Louvre, this painting will pop up in your mind, and you'll remember to include 𠂇 and when writing .
