address: A dress
aftertaste: REFLUX medicine Pepcid for example
justice: visualize the scales of justice
oppression: Oprah Pressing something
obscure: a rare cure I have trouble with this one because I know the etymology too well and just want to visualize someone obscuring someone’s view.
But one question I have is why attach foreign language words to loci? It’s a an extra unneeded association, i.e. you have the Locus-the foreign word-the native language word, you have to associate all three.
Why not just associate the last two, i.e., the foreign word and the native language word?
The only advantage of the loci being associated with these is you may want to keep track of how many words you have learned.
I have heard other writers on this forum who use loci or journey for language learning and I wonder if I am missing something? Clearly two associations are easier and more recallable than three.
