mnemonic:  A single keyboard character associated with a labeled component (such as a push button or menu selection).  The mnemonic is underlined in the label, or if the mnemonic is not contained in the label, it can follow the label in parentheses.  The underscore in the menu selection “View”, for example, indicates that the letter “V” is the mnemonic for that selection, and that pressing the “V” key on the keyboard will activate the View selection.  (See also: accelerator.)
