Gilbreth Morse Mnemonics
In the nonfiction book Cheaper By The Dozen, pioneering industrial engineer Frank Gilbreth teachs his 12 young children Morse Code by making a set of mnemonics words and phrases that have the stress cadence of the morse character, that begin with the letter.

Gilbreth Morse Mnemonics
A.-dit daha-BOUT
B-...dah dit dit ditBOIS-ter-ous-ly
C-.-.dah dit dah ditCARE-les CHILD-ren

However, the book only gives the first four. And Google isn't finding the rest either.

Does anyone know the rest of the Gilbreth Morse Code Mnemonics?

I didn't find it, but I did find two mentions of it that said, basically, if you learn the Gilbreath technique, you'll never be proficient in Morse. It gets in the way of you actually learning the alphabet correctly.

Really? Interesting. It doesn't seem that it would be any worse than "Every Good Boy Does Fine / FACE / Great Big Dogs Fight Animals / All Cows Eat Grass" for the first steps of learning notereading...
