Learn to "pseudospell" now!

Any words may be spelled to give letters, or they may be "pseudospelled" to give numbers.  Pseudospelling is much easier than spelling, for several reasons.   There are only 10 numbers, not 26 letters to deal with.   What's more, all words are pseudospelled exactly as they are pronounced.   Only the distinctive consonant sounds are pseudospelled, not the weak vowel sounds or the silent letters.   There is never any uncertainty in pseudospelling:  if you can pronounce it you can pseudospell it.  It took you years to learn to spell now you can learn to pseudospell with about 10 minutes of concentration.

The connections between the sounds and numbers are quick to learn, because most of the letters we usually use for these sounds actually look something like the numbers.   The letter t has one central stroke down, so the sound t is 1.  The letter n has two strokes down, so the sound n is 2.   The letter m has three strokes down, so the sound m is 3...   If you carefully read the Memory Aids in the table below, and visualize these letters and numbers while you are reading it, you will be able to pseudospell anything.
 
Numbers and sounds      Memory Aids
0 the sound z, s, soft c      the word "zero" starts with z (click here for a picture and some examples)
1 the sound t, d, th      t has 1 stroke down (note that d is simply a voiced t-sound) (click here)
2 the sound n, ng      n has 2 strokes down (click here)
3 the sound m      m has 3 strokes down (click here)
4 the sound r      r in the word "four" (click here)
5 the sound l      capital L resembles a 5-finger outstretched hand (click here)
6 the sound j, ch, sh, soft g, tch      script j, with closed lower loop, resembles a backward 6 (click here)
7 the sound k, hard c, q, hard g      in the letter K are two hidden 7s (g is a voiced k-sound) (click here)
8 the sound f, v, ph      script f, with two loops, resembles 8 (v is a voiced f-sound) (click here)
9 the sound p, b      p and b resemble 9 (b is a voiced p-sound) (click here)

The numbers can also be written as pseudonumerals.
Pseudonumerals:  
 S 
 T 
 N 
 M 
 R 
 L 
 J 
 K 
 F 
 P 
Arabic numerals:  
 0 
 1 
 2 
 3 
 4 
 5 
 6 
 7 
 8 
 9 

That's the whole list!  You've seen it, but probably not learned it yet.  (We like to read something first, before we invest time in memorizing it.)
Now, to memorize it, you must see the Memory Aids in your mind, one at a time.   Mental images are the easiest things for our minds to hold on to.  Use 10 minutes and do it now even though you'd rather read on.  You simply won't enjoy the rest of this web site if you don't know how to pseudospell!



. . . . . . Welcome back!

The entire code is given by: "Pseudonumerology, I give up!" = 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
You might use this phrase if you get stuck when just beginning, but please dont try to learn the code this way!
It is much easier to learn the code using the Memory Aids listed above.


To test yourself on pseudospelling, write out the numbers from these phrases, which each contain all ten digits.  Then check your answers:
 
"Just a bum, a feinaigler        (=  6019382754)
"Please show me every kind"          (=  9506384721)
Phantasmagorishabl        (=  8210374695)

If you had trouble any place here, go back to the Memory Aids and check them again.   You may have had a problem with the g in feinaigler, the sh in show, the v in every, or the Ph in Phantasmagorishable.   You won't have this sort of problem for long.

Here are a few more sentences to practice a bit:

You might use this phrase if you get stuck when just beginning, but please dont try to learn the code this way!
31 0 10 840 8 71 017 2 601 9722, 91 950 121 14 1 542 1 71 10.

It is much easier to learn the code using the Memory Aids listed above.
=1 0 36 04 1 542 1 71 02 1 334 10 5011 98
