Hi!
Im seraching for a technique to memorize words that I have not known before. Ie, look through a dictoinary and with as little effort as possible be able to memorize the words and their meaning. Is there a good technique for this? If so, where can I find it?

Easy.....best way POSSIBLE is Harry Loraynes memory system,
just look it up online harry lorayne memory and you'll find it,
An older one which is a whole big book is Lorayne and Jerry Lucas (NBA) The Memory Book which is also good but it doesn't just focus on the dictionary words memorization that your looking for but it covers it as well as a ton of other info.
Lorayne has a bunch of books out there on the topic but look for whatever book has the LINK topic.

Are you doing this as a stunt, or just to increase your vocabulary?

If to increase your vocabulary, just read the word, visualize the whole word as a picture unit (helps with the spelling) and then review the meaning in your 'back brain'...then use the word in a sentence a few times...get a friend prepped so you can use new vocabulary on them every day. Make it a creative game.

repeat the above with each new word.

I tend to think that using stunts and memory tricks might be fine for lists of words, but to increase your vocabulary, just do it one by one. It is not difficult, at worst, it is tedious.

If you are learning all this for stage stunts, youj might try Amazon, and search for various books on the subject.
