The Inventor drew pictures in the sand of a speaker's face as he pronounced the different speech-sounds going to form the alphabet. He then picked out from each face the distinctive articulatory elements for each sound.
To create the alphabet he combined in one visual shape the articulatory elements going to form that sound, together with his own observation of the relative positions of his tongue and teeth.
