I'm not sure of what you mean by some of the statements, but when choosing,
for instance, gaiyo to mean "to Purr"  I thought of what not many other
animals can do that a cat can.  Also I could get "to Sleep"  in another way.
I tried to make it the way that I thought was most logical, using strings of
connected affixes like to, tao, at   to symbolize strings of connected
concepts, and if i needed a different meaning, I could make up a new string
and derive it.  Also, when i needed to make up a word, I would think of how I
could get the word using affixes and other words.  That would explain the
chains of noun root to adjective to noun to adverb, cat to stealthy to
stealth to stealthily.  I'm not sure what I'm talking about but it makes
sense to me.  argh.
