The Denotation Words
for PreBabel, the true Universal Language
Copyright © July 2009 by Tienzen (Jeh-Tween) Gong
The seed words of PreBabel are constructed by inferring the composite root words with a vertical genealogical structure. The denotation words of PreBabel (PB) are constructed with two radicals, one category name, one object identifier. So, the denotation words grow horizontally in a category with object identifiers. The identifier is borrowed mostly from the seed word group, and its choice could be arbitrary while an inferable choice would be most desirable. Thus,
denotation word of PB = category name + object identifier
The category name can be a PB root or a compound root, such as elephant (animal head, pig-like animal). Elephant can be a category.
The identifier can be a PB root, a compound root, a seed word or its decedent word.
Although every PreBabel root word could be a category, roots about objects are most likely to be used as category headers, such as, plant objects , bamboo group , bird group , etc.. The followings are some examples of the denotation words.
The denotation word can be used as radical for more seed words (inferable words), and this makes an ad infinitum pathway for constructing new words. For example:
- flower (plant category, transform)
- peach (tree, east)
- eagle (bird, large)
- salmon (fish, single minded)
looks alike (elephant, man )
At this point, we are encoding English vocabulary with the PB root words, and every such an encoding pronounces the same as the English word it encodes.
