Re: "Sagispeak"

Please keep in mind that the new prefixes or suffixes don't necessarily translate easily to other languages, especially those such as mine (Finnish) ... So we'll have to come up with our own nomenclature, anyway, and the closer it can be to your English version, the better. Thanks Juhani. The best ...

Re: "Sagispeak"

We had a bug where the double backslash in ":\\!:", which was the obvious smiley code for :\ \!:, was interpreted correctly on Preview but interpreted as a single backslash on Submit, and therefore gave :\!: instead. And the colon slash slash in "://|:", which was the obvious smiley code for :/ /|:,...

Re: "Sagispeak"

Are the sounds listed the same as in IPA? Or is "j" here actually the IPA phoneme /dʒ/, as in "judge"? We are hoping to have fixed spelling across all languages that use latin/roman characters, and in order to do so we are happy to allow different pronunciations, with "j" being probably the widest....

Representing Sagittal in plain text

In the Facebook 22-Tone Workgroup at https://www.facebook.com/groups/370122423186931/419061598293013/ Juhani I thought u said we don't need both symbols. I wanted to use ^ v ^# vb b and #, mixed sagittal. I have no concern anymore for universality. I'm mostly concerned with 22 edo so we dont need ^ ...

Re: "Sagispeak"

We can now embed real sagittal symbols in posts, by clicking on them in a palette in the editor, as you can see below. I don't know about you, but I think this is awesome! :D C:#::\!: E:b::/|: F:/|\: B:!): [Edit: No need for the Sagittal "smilies" to be preceded by whitespace any more. They can be p...

Re: "Sagispeak"

In the 22-Tone Workgroup on facebook, Dave, does that mean the 64:63 accidentals will likely be tai and tao, and the 33:32 ones vai and vao? Sorry I just can't wait. Yes! I've just received a long-awaited email from George Secor confirming this. But vai/vao is not the only pronunciation for the full...

Re: "Sagispeak"

Thanks for raising the issue of language independence. We certainly intend for the pronunciations to be language-independent and appreciate any help you can give us in ensuring that. We believe we have chosen phonemes which are common to most languages. In my post above I only described the usage fo...

"Sagispeak"

I thought that the drawbacks of a tuning-independent way of pronouncing the accidentals would outweigh the benefits, until George showed me the beautifully simple system he'd come up with. In George's pronunciation system, the directions up and down are just two vowel sounds. "Ao" is pronounced exac...
