I am not sure if I've mentioned this before, but Angosey is base-28. About three years ago, I wrote the 28 symbols for each digit. There was no pattern or thought behind them, and (predictably) I could never commit them to memory. And it seemed too arbitrary. The Angosey developed a base-28 system because 28 is a perfect number...surely there had to be a pattern, a rationale, to the symbols they used. I guess I don't know enough about number theory, but what is the advantage of having a perfect number as a base?
