Description

In our modified pinyin chart, there are some syllables that have no final, which we refer to as a "null final". For ease of typing, we represent it as "-_", but you may in other places see it represented as "-∅". It's a symbolic part of the system and has no pronunciation.

house

Explanation

The null final is the most common final, so it makes sense to have it be the most common place: a [-_] house. In our mnemonics we will assume the [-_] house is a free standing house with a basement.
  1. From the front you can see the nice two story [-_] house that seems straight out of an old East-coast American suburb complete with a nice lawn and sidewalk.
  2. The inside of the [-_] house has a nice carpeted living room with a coffee table, TV, and couch.
  3. The basement is a standard cement-floored basement with various things stored down there.
  4. The bathroom is a standard tiled bathroom with a toilet, shower, and towels.
