As an aid to learning Morse code, this technique has you associate a word with each character. For a letter in
the alphabet, the associated word will usually begin with the same letter. In that word, tall letters (those
descending below the baseline or ascending above the mean line) and capital letters represent dashes, while
short letters (aceimnorsuvwxz) represent dots. To recall the Morse code for a character, try to visualize the
word and hence a part of the processing will be performed in your minds eye (that is, using your visual cortex).
