The easiest way to remember the correct spelling is to think of the word "monastic" (of or relating to monasteries).

When I get lost on the spelling of a word which is usually pronounced in such a way that the vowels are not emphasized and are therefore not as easy to remember (is it a, e or u?), I try to recall a derivative (derivation) where the pronounciation makes the proper spelling obvious.
