The basis of this SKU system is a 9-square grid with the Latin alphabet placed in order, as indicated below. The alphabet goes through 3 cycles.
Every letter has a two-digit number assigned to it. The first numeral is that of the box number (1-9), and the second that of the alphabetical cycle in order (1-3).
92 - R, 62- O, 42 - M, 11 - A, 91 - I, 52 - N, 51 - E, 0 - End of word marker
The basis for the numbers in ESKUA is a 9-square grid with the Latin alphabet placed in its order, as indicated in Illustrations 3 and 4 - e.g.: the alphabet goes through three cycles, and each cycle starts bottom left and moves to the top, back to the bottom middle, then to the top middle, back to the bottom right, then finally to the top right.
Each quadrant therefore contains three cycles, one for each of the possible letters, and each SKU number always consists of two numerals. The first numeral indicates the quadrant in which a letter is located (1-9). The second numeral represents one of the three possible cycles in which a letter can occur in that quadrant (1-3). The rationale for this order is: knowing first which quadrant is being referenced is intellectually efficient because it immediately reduces the pool of possible letters from 26 to 3.
For example, the numbers 11, 12, 13, represent all three letters in quadrant, “1”, containing “A,” “J,” and “S.;” 61, 62, and 63 represent quadrant “6” containing the letters “F,” “O,” and “X. ”The numeric correspondences are very easy to learn because while the first numeral of a couplet is 1 through 9, the second numeral will always be only 1 through 3. All of the necessary elements for learning the system is contained in Illustration 4. Illustration 3
