(In reply to re: Possible solution by brianjn)

Without a determiner such as "a" or "the" or a punctuation mark indicating a possessive, such as "Moe's", I somewhat concluded that the fourth word must be SIX.  The T and E for TEN and the E for ONE were already represented and thus should not reappear in the "shape code".  This then left the seventh word as ?IT?.  With the only two possibilities I could think up: CITY or RITZ.  If it were CITY the preposition would not be AT but would be IN, thus I selected RITZ as the answer to the first word. 

Though I was able to deduce the answer given in my previous post, I have yet to identify a set pattern for the shapes' alphabet though the 26 characters used for that alphabet can be deduced.
