Hello from Russia, Erin! I value all suggesting of yours, but how can I keep the preferred order of words and put the next one to its right place according to the rules without marking the target unit of speech digitally? We all know those words and are able to retype any one for seeing the meaning, aren't we? I can deduce the next and previous words in my list if I know the one standing between them using digits in the act of simple adding or deducting being orientated upon the sound produced by them and comparing the result with that I've kept in my memory. It works mechanically without any efforts to apply. Deduction works very well in this case if you remember the order of words in the system. Each new word will be forced by a pair of "neighbouring ones".

At first the sound is remembered - like in our childhood as babies can't read earlier than they start talking. Digital transcription is my key to correct reading and remembering the new words. I agree that there are differences in British and American variants of pronunciation and spelling a word with the same meaning. I catch the words which are remembered by me with "digital butterfly-net" as if they had been insects for an ornithologist's collection. I'd like to find them in my memory and write down in chosen order of their following one another. Thank you for the word "though" - I think it's been missed by me. Smile! I try to learn Spanish, Italian and Polish as well and am going to fill my memory with new contents. I'm grateful for any help. My best regards from Russian province!

Khvalovsky commented on the word 40 - 4022 - a, an
In Spanish the indefinite articles divide all nouns into two genders - masculine and feminine and in it they are used with the aim of gender identification and formed by endings as well. There are 2 indefinite articles in Spanish - un (m)and una (f). For example: un alumno, una alumna - pupils of a masculine or feminine gender in singular form. Not all nouns follow the rule and some of them have different endings. They are ended on consonants and some other vowels, for example, like here - una ciudad (a city), un abedul (a birch), un café (a cafe, coffee)

If you make a list of the words as you tag them, but just adding the words themselves without numbers, they will stay in the order you put them in. Then if you look at the tag for any individual word you would see your number.

Only if you make your profile public again so we can see that you're the one who tagged it.
Can I tag marky with '666'?
like tag the word 'are' with '02'. not mix 2 data types in one entry like '02 - are'.
thats what i was suggesting. that way the words are still the words.

We're very happy to see how active you have been on Wordnik.com! We think your list http://www.wordnik.com/lists/digital-english-vocabulary is very interesting.
However, by listing the number before the word, it makes it hard for other users to find your list and system -- no one is looking up 390442 - shower -- they look up shower.
A more flexible approach would be to list just the word high, and tag it with the number "3703". That way, you could see all the words with the value "3703" here: 3703 (check the "Related Words" section).
Another user is working on a similar project where she is tagging the consonant-vowel patterns in her list of words: see cvccv for examples.
