technique for dealing with these confusables is weighted learning.
This technique involves finding a way to distinguish
between the words that are confusing and weighting one word so
that the student knows that one; if it is not the known word, then
it is the other word. In
the example of his and her given
above, a person can think of the i pointing up and
think that most males are taller than females.
If the confusing word has an i in it, it is
male, his or him rather than the other
word that refers to a female.
Her does not have an i.
