oops ! bac does exactly that. or rather, it has unique ways of deriving types of related concepts ( all nouns ). however, their definitions are quite general, so meanings can vary quite widely : for example, from a basic noun c1vc2, you can form a new noun vc1c2 which has isolates the typical place or area where the verb C1vc2 takes place |gaj| eye, |agj| theatre |seb| blood, |esb| heart |bac| language, |abc| country/nation |terak| coal, |aterk| coal mine |ler| small pool, |elr| basin, cup |rak| friendship, |ark| pub, bar likewise, the verbal form C1wvc2 looks towards the future |Per| be, |Pwer| be about to/start being ( meaning depends on the complement verb's mood ) |Gaj| look, |Gaj| anticipate |Car| act, do, |Cwar| prepare as you apply this, polysemies arise, but i rather like them ( remind me a bit of sanskrt compounds with multiple interpretations—indeed i might make them a vital part of the poetry when i come to develop that ) bn ===== bnathyuw | landan | arR stamp the sunshine out | angelfish your tears came like anaesthesia | phèdre __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
