Blog Post · Timlan Word Count += 100 (and a bit)
Posted On Sunday 29 January 2012 by Freddie Nash (FredFace)
Not sure how many elements there are, BUT WE HAVE THEM NOW.
In Timlan, we like to make life easy, like, you know, making everything make sense, and not be silly.
Now, we recognise that Scientists like this also, so we are using the Standard Symbols for elements so that we don't have to come up with our own names, I mean, be consistent and all.
To make an element, stick 'eli' at the start, and another 'i' between any remaining chars in the symbol.
Hydrogen, H, elih
Silicon, Si, elisii (glotal stop, remember)
Potassium, K, elik
If you don't like the symbols, use the elements atomic numbers:
c-ota eli (1st element, Hydrogen)
That better not need explaining.
tokouhaht setuh sui
Reminder: DO NOT diphthongise 'iw' (in eliw (tungsten)) AND SUCH
