When I was in CR school (in the dark ages) the mother of one of the other students suggested REFRPBLGTS -- I've been using it ever since, no conflicts in 30+ years (then again, I've only written it maybe a half-dozen times, and then only in school)
I learned this in the DRA newsletter which I used yesterday on the word "contingent." RAIRT is a good brief (if you remember it) but if they keep saying the same word over and over and you're briefing on the fly, use "OIG." Refrigerator would become "ROIG" -- you know it's a brief because of the ending. On "contingent" I wrote KOIG.
This is brilliant. I really like this idea, Judy. Many times in the first hour of a depo you get that dear-in-the-headlights feeling from a big acronym or a ridiculously large word that keeps coming up and you haven't had a second to figure out a brief for it. Then for the next hour your fingers stall everytime it comes up and you end up writing it 12 different ways to Sunday. This is such a great idea, I can't wait to use it!
