>>> "Daniel A. Wier" <dawier@...> 01/13 3:47 >>>Whoops, I was being vague... I meant engravings of different dephths and
slopes. And I thought of making the three dimensions represent consonant,
vowel, and tone of syllable. (Once again, the colors represent the
depths/grades when used on paper or the monitor screen. I recommend the
darkened versions of the four basic colors: red, yellow, green, blue. In
other words: crimson, maize, forest green and navy blue; black could be a
'neutral' fifth color.)
An example: a shallow mark would be Mandarin tone one, a deep mark tone
four, a deep mark leading into a shallow exit tone two, and a shallow mark
leading into a deep mark tone three. Colors: tone one is crimson, tone two
is maize, tone three is forest green, and tone four is navy blue -- an
unmarked tone would be black. In the character rebus, the consonant is on
the left/upper left, the vowel on the right/upper right, and a nasal (<n>
<ng>) ending (or <er>) below both marks when applicable. Of course, this is
one wild experiment
This is what makes me feel inferior.
Every day I read somthing and think: "Why didn't I think of that?"
A wonderful idea to use colours or depth to indicate tone, poa or
