Gamme

The inverted triangle includes interdisciplines such as procedural or generative music and art at the intersections of Rese-Audi & Rese-Visu, and sound reactive illustration at the Audi-Visu junction.

While the sectors chosent for the realisation of this Grand Oeuvre are audio, visual and code, someone else's diagram might include taste, touch, or even pain; any medium that one chooses to become the artisan of.

The hexagon is a map onto which the Nataniev ecosystem is meant to overlay.

Nataniev

Nataniev is a platform for tools such as Horaire, Paradise and Ronin — mapping over the Trisight.

The purpose of Nataniev is to be a platform capable of hosting a series of tools, mapping over the Trisight, helping in the acceleration of Grand Oeuvre, see Gamme.

Initiated in 2011, this custom engine includes a CLI, formerly known as Paradise, two different flat-files database parsers and its own unique APIs syntax. It serves this website, Hundred Rabbits, Grimgrains, as well as Twitter Bots.

Single scripts and repositories, known as vessels and instances, exist as locations in this Ecosystem and can be visited through the CLI. For example, each Automaton exist as a character that can be found within Paradise; this page exist as a page in a book, in a library that can also be entered and explored.

Basics

Welcome to the Lietal documentation. Viro kär'of lietäl'takït.

Phonology

Lietal is written from left to right with implicit neutrality, singularity and under the present tense. For the most part, its 6 vowels and 9 consonants are voiced similarly to their english equivalents.

6 Vowels
ileaves ahexagram oautomobile
enever unew ybuy
9 Consonants

Morphology

Building words from Lietal's phonemes is called childspeak. It makes for rythmical and syllabic words, but which take quite a long time to say. This documentation uses the phonetically denser adultspeak.

Single syllable words are reversed, so vo becomes ov. Vowel sequences, like lara, are condensed into lär. Consonant sequences, like lyfasa, are condensed into lyfäs.

When going through a long number, one can choose to use ul instead of the next immediate zero.

29'600'000 Lieli'il liela'liro lielo'liso. 29'600'000 Lieli'il ul'liro ul'liso.

When one wants to talk about mathematics.

2 + 4 + 6 Fïs el il es lia es liso ul. 2.64 Il'ok lira'liso lia. 2 / 6 = 3 Fïl el il es liso ul ev of lio. 2 - 6 = -4 Fiso el il es liso ul ev of lio'dijo.

Grammar

The grammar is akin to that of an object oriented programming language, look at the follow sentence and observe how even parenteses have phonetics attached.

WelcomeViro. GoodbyeVïr.
Yes, I understandIv fati'dija. No, I don't understandOv fati'dijo.
Speak to me in LietalFari'dïj lietäl. Please, say that againJavi fari'dïj lia.
Do you speak Lietal?Fari'dijär lietäl. Yes, I speak a littleIv fari'dijär talo.
What is your name?Tady'of jado. My name is LucasTady el lucas ul.

Construction

English My name is Lucas. Lietal Tady'of lucas. Construct name.to_be Lucas

Notice how the pronoun was ommited, in return if you want to address another person. This will have the effect of saying something like "But your name is Lucas."

English Your name is Lucas. Lietal Lari'tady'of lucas. Construct You.name.to_be Lucas

Now let us look at how the tenses are used as the method of an action.

English Call me Lucas. Lietal Fatady'dïj laro lucas. Construct to_name.imperative I Lucas

Collections

Sequences of things can be grouped together into collections and used as a single entity.

English The house is red and blue Lietal Tokafo'of el lyfalo es lyfaloki ul. Construct house.to_be [ red & blue ]

Below is another example with a different sentence structure.

English The red and blue house is small. Lietal Tokafo el lyfalo es lyfaloki ul'of taro. Construct house [ red & blue ].to_be small

Numbers are also using collections

English The address is two hundred twenty three. Lietal Tokafo'tady el loe'il lira'lio lia ul. Construct house.name [ 100.2 10.3 4 ]

Settings

Settings are the environment of the sentence, it preceeds a sentence.

English I will go to school tomorrow. Lietal Dilai ev fori'dïr kadoti. Construct tomorrow ! to_go.future library

Here is the usage of a collection as the settings.

English I will go to school, either today or tomorrow. Lietal El dila us dilai ul ev fori'dïr kadoti. Construct [ today | tomorrow ] ! to_go.future library
