An anamonic is a form of mnemonic device frequently employed by tournament Scrabble players. It consists of a "stem" (often, but not always, an acceptable word itself), paired with a phrase in which each letter can be added to the stem and rearranged to form a new word. Typical stems are sets of six or seven letters, as such anamonics aid in learning and in finding valuable seven- and eight-letter "bingo" ( UK: "bonus") plays. Just as importantly, a player can quickly verify that she should not waste valuable time looking for a word in a set of letters that is ruled out by an anamonic. ...more on Wikipedia about "Anamonics"
