Txele : Geometry
« on: March 07, 2010, 02:30:21 am »
sphere
plane
rod
chock/gore-like
tube
round
edged
symetric
croocked
string
gutter
bulge(comes out)
dent(goes in)
rip
chain(many similar objects connected)
bundled
folded
funnel/cone


"concepts":

sprawling/spreading like roots of a tree on the ground or the petals of a flower

hole(that goes completely through)
blind hole(goes not completely through)

arc (segment of a circle) but not the shape of a bow
complete arc(circle,ring/torus)
could have the same root

diameter/perimeter (maybe one of them is preferred when measuring/estimating objects)

shape like a drop

all words could be either a noun or adjectice, maybe even a verb
[[not colored yet]]

i would be interested if some geometrical concepts are described differently in other languages

'Rain' suggested some geometry words, only one of which is duplicated here (round). So, I will add:

Square (A)
Triangle (A)
Rectangle (A)

And some additional terms:

Cylinder (like a tree trunk) (A)
Irregular (no specific shape) (B)
Jagged (like a sawtooth) (B)
cardioid (heart-shaped, a common shape in nature) (C)

symetric repetition of circular arranged similar shapes - might optionally be used with a number
eg: polygon, star(symbol), flower with regular shaped and arranged petals

this might substitute square and triangle(i doubt that these are common shapes in nature and the live of the Na'vi)

The basic shapes may not be common in nature, but they would likely be among things the Na`vi would make. OTOH, polygon shapes beyond those listed would not likely need names, except for the specific objects they are/represent. There is a word for flower syulang. Is a term needed for 'flower-shaped'? (That said, there are numerous flower shapes. The ones you are thinking of here are most closely represented by our genus compositae -daisies, for example. From what I saw in the film, Pandoran flower shapes were very unusual compared to earth.
