Pa’a

This chart is a simple representation of an idea I’ve been pondering for a while. It serves as a guide for forming compound words, and as a hierarchy of syllables. That sounds weird, but what is basically means is that “pa” is more important than “ya”. So, a good example might be “patlati” (“playing field”) being put together from “patla” (“field”) and “yoti” (“play; game”). So, in the chart you see that the plosives, or pana sounds rank higher than the yasa sounds, or semivowels. So when we reduce the construction patlayoti to three syllables, we reduce it by the “lowest ranked syllable”. This is something that I may begin to use in the formation of neologisms for Kala.
