Prestige and Fame

Number eight is such a beautiful vibrant green color. I like it because it is interesting to look at and is an eye popping addition to anything imaginable. The green is bright and deep but I would not describe it as neon or dark green. It is also extremely attractive due to the fact that it has a serious, down-to-earth attitude weaved into the greenish tones. This is the kind of green that has a job to do and will get it done against all odds. I much prefer such a shade of green than the wobbly kinds that lack any substance or solidity. Green of this sort is highly intellectual and prestigious. If I were to compare the green itself to a commonly seen green, I might liken it to the shade of green on the John Deere logo or of a luscious, well-cared for front lawn. From now on, when I say “green” I am referring specifically to this particular shade and tone of green. Continue reading


Arbitrary IPA Numbering

Arbitrary IPA Numbering (A.IPA.N.)

Arbitrary IPA Numbering is the second level of IPA Notation. This is based off of the same arrangement of phonemes on the QWERTY keyboard. However, instead of using the special characters, we use numbers to represent each phoneme. The intent is to enable the user to apply IPA notation in electronic form without the need for any special programs or software. A.IPA.N. is designed so that no keys will be needed except for the keys on the number pad. Continue reading

Arbitrary IPA Spacing

The first IPA notation is arbitrary phonetic spacing, or A.IPA.S.

A.IPA.S. uses no numbers but rather uses a phonetic transliteration script where each phoneme in the IPA is represented by its own character and accent is indicated by the size of the characters in each syllable. This alphabet is the basis for all other notation scripts. There are around 43 characters divided into two categories: vowels and consonants. The vowel category is slightly more systematic than the consonants, which are extremely arbitrary. A.IPA.S. is usually expressed in its own set of phonetic characters but can also be expressed on the QWERTY keyboard. Continue reading
