Ozen - Verbs I

Ozen was created right a few moments ago, right after planning how verbs could be. Basicly, Ozen differs from Engi by the verb conjugation, which now includes (for Ozen) a more clear view on verbal aspect, which can be imperfective or perfective. The latter stands for situations where things happen in a single block (or a point) of time, while the former may include repetitive, durative, progressive etc..

Ozen has imperfective and perfective aspect, each one with their own no-past and past forms. Let's see the active, factual forms in the following table (verb ikeda "to have powers to"), which shows the forms for the verbs of front-vowel (e,i,ö,ü) stem:

The passive is as follows:

For both forms, active and passive, the desiderative is made up by adding the particle na right after the verb.

Negation is done by adding mu right before.

Negative desiderative is made up by adding neri instead of na.

Evidentiality may be added to hte sentence by using adverbs such as dał (witnessing, surely), neb (non-witnessing), bał (hearsay), uład (citation, quote), muznał (dubiously, uncertainty).

Next time, the verb soda "to do", showing the conjugation forms for back-vowel (a,o,u) verbs.


Open Letter to Monstrata and alike

Dear Monstrata

The talk (below) is more related to investments, but there are more things in the midst of his words, so pay attention.

text by Felipe Miranda, CEO Founder of Empiricus Research
translated by Alarido, Empiricus customer

« Overconfidence in itself is the seed for further destruction. The guy sees no more risks. He is convinced that his positions [TN: opinions too] will win, without any room for scares or jitters in the way. If I have been so successful in the past, it will certainly be so in the future. The convergence of the material scenario for my projections was not due to a combination of random forces which, by chance, only coincidentally resulted in what I expected. Looking back, "It just might have been like this, right?"

Unfortunately, the story does not tell what it could have been. Just what it was. This feeling that, in the past, one can foresee the future forms a feeling of omnipotence, infallibility and invincibility. It creates the false sense that we can leverage ourselves, concentrate excessively - after all, we know exactly what will happen ahead, will not it?

The financial market does not belong to the heroes. No one can 'chest trap' [TN: "matar no peito", as used in soccer context] all the randomness and uncertainty to which we are subjected. Success belongs to the survivors. I think of George Soros, who survived the Holocaust. He says all the time that his greatest merit is not to err less than the others - is to admit the error and correct quickly. To me, you're the biggest investor of all time. I think of the figure of the greatest Brazilian manager [TN: i.e., Luis Stuhlberger, strategist of the Verde Asset]. I think of several other big money winners. They are all geniuses, but, above all, survivors. They doubt themselves - that is the greatest merit. Know your own limitations. You need to have a little fear, a mistrust about yourself that will push you to the proper risk management, a paranoia that will not let you sleep at night if there is any position out of place.

The archetype can not be that of the hero. The hero is fragile, alone, he wants to kill everyone. The hero dies of overdose, over concentration or leverage.

If you need an archetype to serve as your imagery, stick with the wise. Open the picture of Master Yoda on your computer and save it on the desktop. I mean it. That says a lot.

Notice the two large, wide ears, always ready to listen - more than to speak (notice the small mouth). The open coat and chest ready to embrace and welcome new ideas, without the typical stubbornness of those who hear only themselves. Contemplate the thick and long nails, an important reference to the passage of time, old age and the experience of those who have been through much (value the true practitioners, those who make money a long time, have seen everything and know the shortcuts). Realize his staff, always maintaining a connection of his body with the earth - it's kinda Anteu, the giant son of Poseidon and Gaia, who was strong and unbeatable, but only when in contact with the ground.

Always keep your feet flat on the floor. Give up the heroes, even if he's fantasizing about yourself. »

This is the name of the new language, named after Engi Threepiece, one of the Yumekui Merry anime characters.

Features of Engi Language

The most noticeable difference between Engi and Alethian (its predecessor) is some taints of Czech- and Polish-influenced orthography, explained below:

(*)Valid for text processors with Unicode support such as Microsoft® Word™, Open Office, LibreOffice™ etc.. Tested within MS Word 2003. Don't work at Notepad, Notepad++, web forms etc. However, possibly you can input such characters from your Android phone.

Other things such as verb conjugation remain the same (except by some adjustment). Cyrilic and Hangul forms were abandoned and no other writing system is up to be accepted for using with Engi language.

Ok, let's make this enough for now (: Bye~ 


A Ortografia Tcheca

Outra possibilidade se me abriu com relação à escrita aléssia. É possível trocar:
  • cz por č
  • sz por š
Claro que não são todos os computadores (nem aplicativos mais simples) que contam com um modo fácil de inseri-los. Você pode incluir no Word ou Excel, por exemplo, usando ALT+#numero como na tabela abaixo.

Čalt+268 čalt+269
Šalt+352 šalt+353

Infelizmente, o mesmo não parece ser possível em muitos (se não todos) os campos de texto nas páginas Web. Outros programas simples como Notepad (e mesmo o Notepad++) não parecem "entender" os atalhos e acabam por entregar outros símbolos.

Porém, smartphones mais novos costumam ter suporte a estes caracteres. Meu Samsung, por exemplo. Aliás, foi assim que "descobri" esse "filão".

Plain Latin form Partial Czech Latin form
szizukesa šizukesa
czuokaz čuokaz

Entretanto, acho que não seria legal trocar tudo. O j e o y devem continuar como estão.

É isso.


Banjo: uma proposta de sistema de escrita

Além do alfabeto cirílico, adaptado para a escrita do Aléssio, uma proposta de sistema de escrita surge. Trata-se de um sistema híbrido, hangul-hiragana. Raízes de verbos e adjetivos, além de o restante das palavras, seriam escritas em hangul. Sufixos, desinências e outros elementos semelhantes viriam em hiragana. Além de diferenciar os diversos elementos, isto pode reduzir (ou mesmo eliminar) a necessidade de usar espaços.

Já se o Hangul for utilizado sozinho, espaços serão necessários.

O Transliterador de Hangul do site ainda não consegue adicionar de forma automática o hiragana para as partículas/sufixos/desinências, que têm de ser substituídas, caso queira utilizar-se do Banjo.

Acima, a parte do código em Javascript que contém a correspondência das partes que constituem os bloquinhos (jamos) Hangul. Claro que tal não adere de fato ao hangul original da península da Coreia, até para que seja possível adicionar fonemas consonantais estranhos ao vernáculo coreano.

Para que seja possível "construir" um Jamo, utiliza-se a tabela de partes (primeira figura) em conjunto com a fórmula acima (segunda figura), pois é atribuído um valor numérico de acordo com a letra e sua posição (inicial - init, média - mid, final - tail).

O mais complicado mesmo é a separação das sílabas, no latino mesmo.

Possessive declension of word Prova

Hi (:

A new idea sprout and blossomed right today! Let's learn something new and confirm the things already learned. I'll be using flashcards with the possessive declension of a given word, so you and me can remember and solidify our Alethian language knowledge.

The first word is prova, -k (noun):

As you may have noticed, these cards are very suitable for Twitter, Instagram, and so on. Feel free to share with your friends at facebook, VK and everywhere.

Model - Mey

For this time, just some lyric translated version. Let's see Model -  Mey.

According to Wikipedia, Model is a Turkish rock band based in İzmir, Turkey.
The Group was founded with name "A due Carmen" in 2005 by Okan Işık, Aşkın Çolak and Can Temiz. This trio attended Fatma Turgut and Serkan Gürüzümcü in 2007. The group's name was changed to "Model" in 2008. The group's first album name "Perili Sirk" in 2009.
So let's know Mey, one of their songs:

Alethian version
(Translated through English version at http://lyricstranslate.com/en/mey-wine.html-2)

Da kirei kaodot mesida da nehezi.
Deri sedi bino houlat posutia.

Melaram zirnortiai, o czuaem
Donna emu da kedi, deri kedi?
Daliketou da cibirularad, kisusu kay daszinusu

Losyuk, 'Kese da ai', de neri znatom
Donna aku da kedi, deri kedi?
O djam mi, aun ti pergidany, numamot ne kenlosom

Aa, telerem da haresek
Febiai dany mi, da
Tinek estanom djam oase, oate, oaserah

Aa dippumel na havasod...
Kay vineyas kenbibesem
Ugrasugor saruzem da, dolencai mi, na kosess

Turkish original version

Bakması ne zormuş ah o güzel yüzüne
Toplamış yine bütün güneşi üstüne

Kamaşıyor gözlerim bebeğim
Öyle gülmek olur mu gözünü seveyim
Cennet dudaklarınmış öp de öleyim

Aşkmış adı nerden bileyim
Böyle zulüm olur mu gözünü seveyim
Adımı sorsan söyleyemem yemin ederim

Ah ellerim titriyor,
Of bir ateş basıyor,
Özlemek bu dokunmakla geçmiyor

Ah öyle sev ki beni
Mey diye içeyim
Kalbim tekliyor ay gel hasta gibiyim

Ok, that's all for now.


Нинген бутато миксида? Mixing humans and pigs?

For sure! Clearly, it's a great aberration! It's not Science. It's nothing but a foolish human attempt to play as gods. It's a very attempt to recreate the Shin Sekai Yori's world in our own.

Well... welcome to the "scientific" Brave New World!

But... what the "heck" it has with teaching your language?

All of this would be summed up in a single phrase: Нинген бутато миксида? [ningen butato miksida?], which translates to "Mixing humans and pigs?".

Human being is нинген [ningen], it comes directly from Japanese.

The pig is бута [buta], it also comes from Japanese. In the phrase, it gets into the Comitative case and becomes бутато.

To mix is миксида (miksida), and it stays into Infinitive.

It would be seen as a "very strange" form of using the word and in several languages. Alethian verb corresponding form is кай [kay], but its using is more strict. For such cases like Sabrina and Sandy goes to San Francisco, we don't use кай. Instead:
Сабрина Сандй-то Сан Франcиско-ни юкесек.
Sabrina and Sandy goes to San Francisco.

Well, that's all for now. Bye.


Коиге кай Коппула - Coverbs and Copulas

Somewhere, many years ago, Aldous Huxley said:

He told us also:  
“I had motives for not wanting the world to have a meaning; consequently I assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption. Most ignorance is vincible ignorance. We don’t know because we don’t want to know. It is our will that decides how and upon what subjects we shall use our intelligence.”

Treatment of such "compound verb" instances varies a lot among languages. Although in Alethian, as like as in English, we can use a train of verbs, coverbs and copulas make the things more elegant.

There are a number of small affixes that are glued to verbs to enhance their meaning a bit.

"To find" in Alethian is trovoda. Adding the ability sense is doing by the prefix ken- (roughly, "to be able to"). So the part "I was able... to find" would then be translated as  "... kentrovotom".

Same thing with "we don’t want to know", which becomes "ne voznasime".

Coverb Meaning(s) For example
ken- ability, capacity kentrovotom
vo- (before consonant)
vol- (before vowel)
act of will ne voznasime
dov- obligation, compromise, duty from law or due to an oath * * *

Copulas function in similar manner, but they more like a verbalization mechanism. The most used copula is the -soda, which inherently similar as "to make" and "to do". It's used with nouns, of course.

And... that's it for now.
