Ugh... Having a hard time memorizing the Kanji 帰 (kae = back). The left part looks like the Katakana for "ri" (リ) and the top right part looks like the Katakane for "yo" (ヨ). As for the bottom right part, it looks like... a mosquito's head?

By the way, does any of you know the Japanese word for "marine fish"? The Kanji should be 海魚, right? However, how to read it? Is it "umizakana", "umigyo", "kaizakana", or "kaigyo"?

The Kanji for "haka" (compute) is 計. To memorize it, I associate it with a calculator drawn upside down with a plus (+) symbol on its right.

The Arabic word for "horn" is "qornun" (قرن). At first I had a trouble associating it with a word from other languages related to horn. Then I realized that in the manga Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, one of Lambo's technique is Electric Cornata, and it has something to do with his horns!

Just know that the Indonesian word "asli" (real/original) is also taken from Arabic, with the Kanji of it being something which looks like "pi bar".

The Kanji for "gen" (plain/original) is 原. To memorize it, I divide it to three parts: 1. The outer border, which looks like a long division sign. A quotient of two integers is the factor of the greater integer; 2. The Kanji 白, means white, like a blank paper; and 3. The Kanji 小, means small, like a newborn baby which is free of sins.

The Kanji for "yoshi" (old/ancient) is 古. I remember that in the "500 Most Used Chinese Characters" book, it explains how to memorize it by imagining it as a pictogram of a grave.

The Kanji for "go" (language) is 語. It consists of the Kanji 言 ("i" = say), 五 ("go" = five), and 口 ("kuchi" = mouth). So, "language" is "speak with five mouths". Well played.
