The same applies to the "intra-personal touching" anchoring of HICP/EHIEP. In addition to the four basic types of anchors (ways in which the two hands make contact, i.e., light tap, touch-and-hold, touch-and-push, and brushing past) a much larger set of emotions are, of course, available. Not only is it possible to intentionally and by design articulate an anchored word with a chosen emotion as it is spoken, such as joy or surprise--or a basic feeling such as pleasure or warmth, it is often essential to do that for efficient assignment to memory.
In other words, if anchoring is done with a consciously selected and somatically experienced emotion or sensation, the chance of "up take" occurring (to use the more technical, "focus-on-form" term currently applied in such cases today) is greatly enhanced. Do you find your pronunciation work enjoyable, moving and "touching?" If not, you should.
