Pseudonumerology®   A word game or word puzzle.
In Pseudonumerology, numbers are converted to words for the pleasure of playing with word combinations.  Then the words may be converted back, as a device to remember the numbers.  Pseudonumerology is not related to the occult practice of numerology.

pseudonumeral  A symbol for a number.
The ten pseudonumerals are S (0), T (1), N (2), M (3), R (4), L (5), J (6), K (7), F (8), P (9).  These symbols S, T, N ... are not pronounced as the letters "ess", "tee", "en"... but as "iss", "it", "in", "im", "ir", "il", "ij", "ik", "if", "ip".  They are handy to convert numbers to words.   Simply write each digit as its pseudonumeral, and see what words you can make for the sounds that the pseudonumerals remind you of.
