I made consistently my vocabulary on a CVC stem (now I've given up) : C1 = *substance* with all other phenomena it suggests to me (for instance fabric = logics) : /l/: water, fluid /n/ : thread, fabric /t/ : plant stem, stick, herb /m/ : earth, flesh, skin /p/ : wood /k/ : stone, earthenware, metal /s/ : thought /F/ (bilabial) : air, fire, gas V = colours = *temper* of the item C2 = *work* or function of item; depends on its first CV.
