Scripted Sentences

 Contents..

Some parts of this course assume that someone would undertake to learning 1000s of images of a system. For instance, there is a system of 5000 people.

There is software such as Metahuman which I am exploring to have a lot of variety in the faces; and it is taking time, in 2021. to make those face images.

But what would keep somebody motivated to learn that many faces (and clothed coloured bodies)? One idea I have is that each person can be pictured saying a sentence which is special to him or her; maybe that helps to make each face stand out; but what is so special about the sentences that someone would visit and revisit them?

It would have to be some kind of educational purpose involving revision notes, I think: each person is saying something that the person is keen to learn or to revise.

An idea I had for foreign language practice is to have 100 beginnings of sentences that I would want to be comfortable being able to say in a foreign language. Eg. "I am sure that you ..."

The 100 starts of sentences would be enumerated from 00 to 99;

The surnames used in the article about people images fro 00 to 99 are prompts for these common sentence structures:

The 100 people introduced early in this course would have, as their surnames, words from those 100 start-of-sentences; like 'Sure' ['I am sure that you..'] so that I get to associate a number 00 to 99 with 100 sentence beginnings;


The 1000 Male and 1000 Women systems are a way to have a visual item for 2000 words but there was a table in those articles because sometimes an English word has many distinct meanings. It was 2000 'words' but a much bigger number of meanings. So maybe each of the 5000 cartoon people (see the article about that) system has an example sentence which applies a distinct meaning of one of the words from that 2000 word list. And, if I exhaust that avenue, there are words which might not be in those lists but which could have example sentences too:

I think that a good example sentence would be short except if it is also intended to demonstrate grammar such as "is bigger than"; and related context words can be in the sentence as well. A sentence about a 'brother' could have the word 'family' in it as well; and that is a good learning device: to put connected words into a practice sentence.
