I just consider the /n/ and /g/ sounds separately, such that Mango would 327 and Pink would be 927. Although, in the Bruno First book, and in some other sources I've seen, folks assign the "ng" sound to 7, such that Mango would be 37, and Pink would be 97.

I used to have a syringe for 0426 and wrench could be there as well. I used to have a mango with 327 but it wasn't working well and got replaced with Monique, Monaco, Maniac.

Pink, if I were to use it with Floyd, might work for 967 but punk might be better. However I have no sounds like that numbered in my systems. Mango sounds never end up 367. Although I am now thinking that tango might work well for 167, an uneasy number for me. (I use water jug for it. ) Tang might make a great 16; I'm somewhat flexible. It is practice and (for me) the loci that seals image and number together.

I use "dash-cam" for 167.

They both make sense. I'm guessing that Bruno Furst assigns it to 7 because "ng", "k", and "g" ("goat", not "George") are all done with the tongue in the same position.

The other letter groups are by mouth position too:

  • 1 = d/t
  • 6 = sh/zh, ch/j ("j" includes "g" as in "George")
  • 7 = k/g (as in "goat")
  • 8 = f/v
  • 9 = b/p

I use vowels for the middle digits, and "b" for 6, so I don't run into "ng" often. :)

167 = T-IH-K = tick
367 = M-IH-K = Mick Jagger
967 = P-IH-K = pick
327 = M-U-K = mookyon ("clown" in Hebrew)

I just plain don't use words with that sound for Major system mnemonics. Problem solved. ;-)
