Consonant Vowel Consonant

 Contents..

I wanted a system of images to represent a combination of 3 letters like 'CON', 'DIN' and extends to include words with Ch or Sh or Th such as 'ThIN'.

If I want to memorise a word which does not already have its own unique image for visual story building then I can take its first letters and memorise those; and hope that it causes me to recall the actual word.

I looked at the 0-9 system of an earlier article and the Colours system of an earlier article; and I developed a solution:

If I look at the 0-9 system where letters represent digits, I can distinguish dominant consonants from lesser consonants. Eg. 0 is represented by Ch dominantly but J is a second way to represent 0. I can make a list of word beginnings which use the dominant letters and the vowels A, E, I, O U:

An image for each of those items can be a name of a famous person or story character which has similarity to the consonants. Eg. 000 row is B O B; I can use the B and the B of that to thin of someone famous whose forename begins with B and whose surname begins with B.

Item 705 is 'CON'; and I can use the C and the N to think of someone famous. Or fail... and then use a biography web site to find someone whose image may be used.

I also had an idea about the colour of these people's clothing: it can imply that the CON needs rearranging to be NOC or another combination. The enumerated colours of the Colours article can be used for that:

Colour Using the dominant consonant left and right
1 C V C
2 C C V
3 C V V
4 V C V
5 V C C





Using the lesser consonant on the left
6 C V C
7 C C V
8 C V V
9 V C V
10 V C C









Using the lesser consonant on the right
11 C V C
12 C C V
13 C V V
14 V C V
15 V C C









Using the lesser consonant on both sides
16 C V C
17 C C V
18 C V V
19 V C V
20 V C C

The CVC is the standard pattern of Consonant Vowel Consonant but an altered pattern of those can be represented by colouring the imagined clothing of the famous person.

I use a lot of colours because I want to also cover the situation where you want to toggle from the dominant letter of a digit to using its lesser used letter. Eg. CON might replace the 'C' with a 'K' or a 'Z' from the 0-9 article.

I think that, if the prefix word looks like an English noun which is easy to sketch then I would have cartoon drawings in addition to images of famous people - probably easier to add colour to a cartoon than to a more complex image of a perosn.
