15 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
  • 3rd side (hint)
i
beat
Think of using that little i as a stick to 'beat' somebody.
I
bit
This big I knows that it is 'it', if you know what I mean. It's the man. It's 'it'. It can take hit, it don't give a sh**, because that is IT.
ej
bait
e and j put together look a little like a handgun, with the J as the handle. And if you're living in the streets, you better be polite and not get shot: 'aeey, man, wassup?'
ae
apple
think of that a as a fruit and the e a snake curling towards it--and bible imagery will get us to the word 'apple' in no time.
ɔj
boy
think of the curvey thing as a nose, and as a nose, it makes a pretty bOring nose.
ə
potato
this sound is like the 'default' sound, like 'uhhh', the sound you make when you do nothing at all with your mouth. We're talking a plain, tastless letter here, basic, no frills; like a potato. Think of that e to mean empty of all movement.
ʌ
But
I'd hate to sit on anything that looks like that spikey thing. Keep my butt away from it.
ɑ
(not a)
pasta
taco
this a looks fat and bloated, it looks different. Maybe it's been chowing down on too many tacos, too much pasta.
a
baught
a is the richest of the vowels. Look at all the bling it baught. Enough to say, 'aaaah, yeah.'
ɔ
bore
think of that curve as a nose- a boring nose.
Ow
boat
if the w represents water, that O is floating nicely on it, eh? Like a boat? Also, when you get hurt, ('ow'), and you look to see what's wrong, maybe you'll go, 'Ooh. I have a nail in my leg.' (or whatever).
ɱ (without the hook at the end)
butcher
those two curves are commonly called 'ram's horns'. And fortunately, rams never have to visit the butcher. We're just not down with ram meat. Also, rams are manly, aren't they? They're very butch.
u
book
Think of that u as a book about to be closed. Or as a boot, ready to be worn.
aw
bout
w has a long time jealousy of a, because a is the 'popular' letter. So they're about to have a bout. And it will only end in pain- 'ow, ow, ow'.
θ
th
the line goes THrough the circle. Or, it looks like teeth- and how better to celebrate your teeth than to go, 'thhhanks, teeth!'
