Topic: QUALITY - Variants of relative QUALITY

In the way that Manchet is a type of good quality bread, or Chutzpah is the quality of audacity, there may be words to represent the quality of specific materials items, actions, sounds, or a simple adjective to mean *highest quality, *higher quality, *high quality, *mid quality, *low quality, *lower quality, *lowest quality, *good quality, *bad quality, *mediocre quality, *acceptable quality or *unacceptable quality.  sìltsan may be a word to use, or there maybe specific qualitative words aside from just being a more general term.  kxeyey may be considered a modifier for failure, but a lower relative quality is not always a mistake or a failure. sweya and ’e’al for best and worst are probably too general in some uses, and may fail to serve the needs of having more relevant terms for the subject of a discussion.  There could be qualitative components of playing instruments or singing, in the archaic use of the word quality referring to an improving ability with a specific skill.

While neytiri says Txur nì’ul (more strong) to Jake, this seems like an urging to improve, not necessarily an indication of quality on its own.

I think we could use words for the items below.

*Good, *mid, *bad Quality of a material.

*best quality bone - highest value, strongest, most durable, best for making tools or knives
*good quality bone - higher value, stronger, more durable, better for making tools or knives
*mid quality bone - strong enough, durable enough, acceptable for making tools or knives
*bad quality bone - not strong enough, flimsy or likely to be useless, not durable enough, unacceptable
*poor quality bone - weakest, flimsiest or likely to be the most useless, very fragile, very unacceptable

*good quality wood - higher quality of good, stronger, better for making bows, better for arrow shafts, better for weaving looms, better or safer for supports for various structures.
*mid quality wood - acceptable enough, durable enough, acceptable enough, good enough
*bad quality wood - unacceptable, bad, not usable


----------

*Good, *mid, *bad, *honorific (respectful of the teacher), *humble, *arrogant/not humble (bad student or not respectful of the teacher) quality of a skill.

Few may be perfect, but maybe you are either have the ability or you don't.  To be the sweya rolyu (best singer) you have to have a higher quality of

*accurate pitch  - the ability to sing a note at the expected note sound value
*inaccurate pitch - the lesser ability or inability to sing a note at the expected note sound value

*precision of timing - this could be for more than just music or it could just be for music
*imprecise timing - this could be for more than just music or it could just be for music

*aesthetically pleasing voice - "I think she is a good quality skilled singer"
*aesthetically acceptable voice - "I think she an acceptable quality skilled singer"
*aesthetically displeasing voice - "I think she is a poor quality skilled singer"

*excellent volume to be heard or enjoyed -  Loud enough to be heard well, not so loud as to be unacceptable.
*sufficient volume to be heard or enjoyed -  loud enough to be heard.
*unacceptable volume to be heard or enjoyed -  to loud causing disrespect or displeasing noises, or not loud enough to be heard.

*Good quality of oration
*Mid quality of oration
*Bad quality of oration


*memory of lyrics or the story of the songs -

Better at conveying the feelings of the songs, good emoting.

*Good/Strong emoting
*Mid emoting
*Bad/No emoting



*A good quality of auyu (Drummer)
*An Acceptable quality of drummer
*A Bad quality of drummer


------

To be the sweya taronyu (best hunter) you would have to have a higher quality of certain hunting skills, that could be rated as good, mid, bad, higher, lower, experienced, or inexperienced.

*tracking - reading animal foot prints, dung/droppings, moved foliage
*sense of smell - ability to recognise what is being sensed via the olfactory senses and follow ones nose
*seeing - nari si and kame would be modified by this term to be doing it well or doing it poorly, and maybe separately for spiritual seeing versus physically seeing.
*ability with a bow - the montage indicates that Neytiri has a very specific approach to how to hold, aim and fire a bow each of these could be separate qualitative terms.

*highest ability to move with stealth - "invisible"
*mid ability to move with stealth - "able to keep prey from sensing your presence"
*lowest ability to move with stealth - "stomping around, making too much noise"

Plant or animal sings reading appears to be a skill Neytiri used on the pamtseowll which apparently she touches to determine something about her quarry, the ASG hints that it watches or turns towards animals, even other humans.  There are danger plants, and atokirina' giving all sorts of indications to Neytiri, there may be a way of referring to the caliber of her abilities at this, and comparing them to others.

*Good plant reading  - touch a pamtseowll and know where the creature is running off, or looking at atokirina' and know they are sending a message.
*sufficient plant reading - touch a pamtseowll and have a 50/50 of it not tracking you over the animal
*Bad plant reading - touch a pamtseowll and not be abel to tell what it is doing.
