J.-Pasaru and its languages: now with full catalogue

Post by Isoraqathedh » 10 Aug 2015 15:37

(The full title of this thread is (Number) and counting: the Jesdic Pasaru, its languages, and its increasingly oversized documentation both in terms of its aggregate file size and its conceptual scope. For obvious reasons, this does not quite fit into the little box above.)

An entire catalogue of languages that I have written is available.

This is the thread where I post my notebook scans, approximately five times every week with an average of about one per day. Hopefully.

Note: The images in this thread (of which there are many, so those with limited data connectivity beware) are hosted on Tumblr, whose links may or may not have the tendency to rot. If this happens, you will be able to retrieve archives (which are currently not available) that I will host via github's website hosting service. The code before each page shows the book number and the page number that uniquely references each page, so in the archives you can search for a particular page using the code given: if you want page (n | m), search for "Book n.*/m*.jpg" relative to the root of the hierarchy of archives.

Let's start us off where we left with a few notes on how the code for the minor planets in the Pasaru system are named.

(16 | 40, 41) (PSD, CIR) Unified Minor Planet Naming System - Notes 1 and 2

ImageImage

(16 | 42) (Ct) Hex digit glyphs.

Cipogrtesaj has a specialised base 16 glyph set. This might be familiar to a few of you who are used to alternate representations of hexadecimal that never took off the ground but are there in Wikipedia.

Image

(16 | 43) (PSD) A fun little bit of political colour tidbits.

Image

This page has a previous version in pastebin.

(16 | 44) (Rs) the metaphor of time in Rattssaw is not one but three.

Image

(16 | 45, 46) (Rs) Emotion pieces.

This one is inspired by how I feel emotions, and put in some inspiration about how people express reactions. Naturally, this is much higher level than individual words and sentences.

ImageImage

(the red text on the first page has been accidentally cut out, and the missing words are: "HAS COME". The brown annotation on the second page was eaten by the scanner, as usual, and reads "[by definition, really, a base breaker has to cut through the group to a rougly even split]")

A note today: Tumblr is being silly so I have to upload the things to Imgur. The thing about imgur though is that it tends to save images full size, which means maximum resolution images. For this reason I put them in spoiler tags today. Enjoy the 2000 × 3500 images! (If you can't, I've collected the images into a nice neat album that doesn't have ludicrously large images. At least not when it's rendered on the screen.)

(16 | 46) (Ag, Cd, GE, Ar) A lineage of how the languages of the Bonbes became what they are now.
Spoiler:
Image
(16 | 47) (SX) Some insights on how a moon that is tidelocked to its parent might have sub-day timekeeping.
Spoiler:
Image
(16 | 48) (XAX) The prime and secondary meridian of Xaxex, and the six poles.

(16 | 49) (XAX) The Xaxex system!

(16 | 50) (XAX) A little bit of coordinate fun with a tidelocked moon. Cutting up such a moon into an octahedron and having six poles.

Image

Note that the noon pole is <em>not</em> the position where (the centre of the disk of) Aimo would appear on the zenith. Because of slight precession on the rotational axis &ndash; which incidentally is not parallel to either Aimo's or Sumer's &ndash; and an ever-so-slight inclination to the orbit, this point is somewhere within at most 300 km (correct to the nearest half-power of ten, i.e. ~10<sup>5.5</sup>&nbsp;m) from the noon pole.

(16 | 51) (SX) This is what the natives call the things above.

(16 | 51b) (XAX) The real coordinate system of Xaxex.

(16 | 52) (PSD) An alternate title that I have considered for this is In the Defence of Prescriptivism. It's a thought of how in any world the two camps can be reconciled.

(16 | 53) (PSD) In the Defence of Prescriptivism, part II.

These small notes also indicate the general slowdown in linguistic change, though "slowdown" should be understood as "increasing speed but decreasing velocity" or "going faster and faster but never going anywhere". This era of linguistic staticness or vibrationism lasted for 20,000 years.

(15 | 56) (Sk) When you make a language that is better written in its native script than in romanisation, sometimes you forget to give names to the most basic of things. Sekapon is at least a year old by now...!

Image

(15 | 57) (Sk) p-adic numbers? Five's complement? In spoken language no less!?

(15 | 58) (XAX) a little bit on the properties of Sumer, the star of the Xaxex system.

I have relatively little shame in claiming that I most of this I had Wolfram Alpha do the calculations for me.

One thing that I do want to know is what the relative proportions of the convective and radiative zones be in this barely half-solar-mass star would be.

(16 | 60) (EP) Those of you who like silly mashups of pretentious ads telling you "secret tricks" to amassing way too much money way too quickly might recognise this one:

Image

(16 | 61) (Rs) Same thing, but in a different language.

Image

There's a small problem with both these translations in that they omit the "TEDx" bit from the original, but that's because I can't work that in. At least I think. I would imagine that I can do so on the Rattssaw translation by, of course, sticking it on the verb next to that nightmare of a verb.

(16 | 62) (PSD, XAX, CIR) Arrowheads and other pointy details.

Image

(16 | 63) (PSD) setting up a mediaeval stasis seriously (except it's more "1800s stasis" rather than "1400s stasis").

Begin book 17
Starting off with a new book, we also have a new language to come.

(17 | 1) (Ct) Discourse and sentential topic markers, though the latter is better termed "dynamic variables" than anything related to topics.

Image

(17 | 2) (Ya) New language: Ya-kĕnaj. It's going to take stack-based languages one further and go full deque (otherwise known as a questack). But first is the requisite groundwork.

(17 | 3) (Ya) Have some romanisation.

(17 | 7) (Translingual) The decimal point is a unit!? Something that I've definitely seen floating around even on Earth but let's make it official.

Image

(17 | 8) (Translingual) Quotes and brackets and their roles in B.-Pasaru semantic determination.

Image

(17 | 9) (Ya) Treating the deque as two stacks, a primer.
