Ah, but at what rate of change? ;-)

It would, for me, if I were being reasonable!
But where's the fun in being reasonable? ;-)

Here, then, are a few of them for your delectation.
Note: rate-of-change markers used here are:
nu = subjective change too slow to notice
no = subjective change which is slow
ne = subjective change which is fast
ni = subjective change too fast to follow
zuv = objective change too slow to notice
kehs = objective change at a "normal" rate
fis = objective change which is fast
wuh = unknown rate of change, subjective or objective
it- = decelerating rate of change
ut- = accelerating rate of change
wit- = accelerating and decelerating rate of change
(ie wild, unpredictable changes)
ner = different parts of the process changing at different rates,
with dono`gndadarxas (= the current week)
= Will the end of the week never come?
= I'm bored outta my tree!
= I'm bored outta my tree and drowning in molasses!
= My watch is running fast.
= This week has its ups and downs.
= This week is a roller coaster!
= This week is an LSD-fueled roller coaster!
= Duh! What week is this?
= Moving right along!
Examples with dono`gndadarsaxas (= the coming week).
= I'm reading my crystal ball (Tarot cards, whatever).
= This place is going nowhere!
= I've just time-traveled to next week
and it's still the same old [add favorite expletive! ;-) ]!
Examples with dono`gndadarxasax (= the previous week)
= Where did last week go?
= There was a last week?
= There was a _me_ ?
(witwuh = wildly accelerating-decelerating ignorance ;-) )
