I was making a two-root taxonomy. The third
root was reserved for a species, for example
frog. Now I am thinking about 8 or 9 letters
long names of flora and fauna...

Most of them are already defined. "Moon" is useless.
"not" and "opposite" are redundant. It takes
hundreds of hours to design and test a set of
roots that makes sense.
