"Always. If language-creation, as a direct result joy-pleasure becomes."
There is no single term for "construct, create" that correlates directly
to the English words. 'Weo' is the term that refers to the catalyst:
inception, ideation, etc. 'Hwaio' is the term that refers to the act of
manifestation or bringing into being. The boundaries sometimes are fuzzy,
but fuzziness is a basic characteristic of draqa understanding. One could
see 'weo' as similar to the sex act, and 'hwaio' as the development in the
womb. 'Twi' would be the final result.
Also, draqa has two sets of Number particles: Paucal and Count.
'FIAmeehsk' basically means "all of the time (for X)", whereas
'FIKUmeehsk' would mean "all of all times". As you can see, due to
wording of the statement, "a fiameehsk" is not neccessary for
