: Need help:
: Recognition has a hook to it.
: What does this sentence mean?
It would be helpful to have more of the context in which this sentence was found, but we can surmise this much about the author's intent: recognition (say, putting a name to a face) is "pulled" from memory the way a fish is pulled from the lake by a hook, or the way any kind of hook is used to pull something closer, where it can be seen more clearly.
