Phonetic Word Creation

Here are some tips on making keywords using the Phonetic Mnemonic System. We have already explained how each digit has an associated sound and that these sounds can be constructed into words. The key here is that each digit has a sound, not a letter.

When a single sound is created with two letters, we only count it once. For example, 'toll' is 15 not 155 and 'tack' is 17 not 177.

When a repeated letter makes two different sounds, then it is counted. For example, 'accept' is 7091.

Silent letters are always ignored. For example dumb is 13 and knee is 2.
