PERSONAL-LOG: DR. EARL SERRANO

DISCERNING THE MEANING OF THE NATIVE LANGUAGE HAS PROVED TRICKY. IN A WAY, IT IS SIMILAR TO THE INUIT-TYPE LANGUAGES OF EARTH'S ANCIENT INDIGENOUS PEOPLES. THAT IS, THERE ARE MANY SUFFIXES THAT MODIFY THE MEANING OF WORDS GIVING RISE TO ALMOST LIMITLESS COMBINATIONS. THIS POLYSYNTHETIC STRUCTURES ALSO ALLOWS MORE COMPLEX PHRASES TO BE CONVEYED IN A SINGLE WORD.

TAKE FOR EXAMPLE THIS TWO-LETTER PHRASE MEANING "POWER SOURCE".

Y 2

BY ADDING DIFFRENT LETTERS BEFORE IT, THE MEANING IS CHANGED AS FOLLOWS:

D Y 2

STRENGTHENS POWER SOURCE

b Y 2

PROVIDER POWER SOURCE
