– Tips to remember the Russian word:
* Associate "пол-" with the English word "pole" implying the central point (like the pole at the center of a clock face), and "-ночь" with "night" since it sounds similar.
* Think of a traditional clock with the hands pointing straight up at midnight, splitting the clock into two halves or "половины" (halves) of the night – hence, "полночь."

– Explanations:
* "Полночь" is composed of two parts: "пол" (half) and "ночь" (night), making it literally mean 'half-night' or more conceptually 'midnight.'
