What is a good way to remember the meaning of anastrophe?

An anastrophe is a figure of speech where the word order changes. "An anastrophe, this sentence is."

I remember this the following way: Consider that "anastrophe" looks and sounds like the word "catastrophe". If your sentence looks mixed up, it has gone through a "catastrophe" and might just be an "anastrophe".
