A simple, easy to use converter for the Mnemonic Major System. Memorize long numbers by converting them to words and phrases!
This app is completely free. No ads. No in-app purchases. No permissions needed. No account needed. Works offline. Uses a dictionary of over 125,000 words. Some credit to Carnegie Mellon University for the base phonetic dictionary on which I used a lot of regex to make this wordlist.
The idea for this app was inspired by an older (and probably better) app called 2Know. I made this because I couldn't find anything like it on Android. This app lets you choose your own word associations. I'm sharing this because you might find it as useful as I do.
Instructions: Enter your number and press convert. Then construct a phrase from the words. Touch a chosen word to move it back.
The Mnemonic Major System is a phonetic system - it uses sounds (phones), not letters.
0 = S, Z, ZH 1 = D, T 2 = N 3 = M 4 = R 5 = L 6 = CH, J, SH 7 = G, K 8 = F, V 9 = B, P
Skip all vowels. Skip the sounds of W, H, and Y. ZH (as in "measure") is represented by 0. PH is represented by F (8). Hard C is represented by K (7). Soft C is represented by S (0). The NG sound would be N+G (27). Silent letters are ignored. School is S+K+L (075) Double consonants are treated as one. So "hammer" is 34, not 334. You can use 33 for something like "mom."
Because vowels and the ignored sounds, you can use some words freely. Words like "a," "who," "we," and "you" can help to make a phrase.
Example: 094759 can be "Super Cool App" "Cyborg Alibi" "See a Berkeley Boy" "Cyber Clap" ...(and more)...
Quick Tip: Wild and bizarre phrases are easier to remember.
