A 1000 System
When people develop memory systems, they try to have images to express digits 0 to 9, numbers 00 to 99, and numbers 000 to 999.It is a lot of work to learn a 000 to 999 system of images.
One approach would be to combine:
500 of the animal images from the Shorthand Images articles; and
500 images from the AA to ZZ system - and to work out a way in which they serve their original purpose but also represent digits from 000 to 999.
Another approach would be to create 1000 fresh cartoon people.
I can use the 100 syllables we came across earlier; and also use the system for representing digits 0 to 9 as letters:
|Number||Two Digits||End Digit||Syllable||End Character||Word|

Once these people exist as images, you can associate trivia with them such as:
the person's favourite word: each of the people could be associated with a frequently used word in conversation. That way, if you need to learn the word's equivalent in a foreign language, you can imagine a story involving the person and an AA to ZZ image that begins the spelling of the foreign word.
You could have that 1000 people system be males; and then make a further 1000 image system with female images; and associate a further 1000 dictionary words with them.
From there, variations on those 2000 images may lead to an even bigger system.... but that is a topic for another tutorial.
I have had a draft 1000 word vocabulary for some years now; I want to craft it to a high standard before I publish it in a new form.
I have 10 hair styles, 10 faces and 10 nose:mouth combinations for making male faces; plus several other rules for making faces more individual; but there is similarity between faces - I think the way past that would be the use of interactive games so that someone really zones in on the individuality of each image.
