The Vowels Set to Number


The sounds that comprise speech are paired into two categories: open and closed – the vowels and consonants, and the voice and unvoiced.

In the article article “The Sepher Yetzirah, Setting Number to Letter“, we began a comprehensive understanding of sound as they are being set to number in English. What we learned is that the unvoiced letters, the unaspirated, are set at precise locations in the Alphabet. Counting forward, the numbers are 3,6 and 11.  The letters placed at 11, the K and X, share design similarities, while the X contains within it sounds from the C, K, and S.  The number 11 is unique in that it is -3 from the end of the half of the Alphabet.
