BPFK Section: Attitudinal Specifiers

Proposed Definitions And Examples


























I've tried to make re'e, ro'a, ro'e, ro'i, ro'o, and ro'u consistent with regard to how their negative and neutral forms work. In all cases, the cu'i form is almost like a na'e, that is, the emotion is said to apply to a different aspect. The nai form acts like to'e, being the opposite of the unnegated form. Some of them still need keywords, as the old keywords like "denying emotion" don't apply (there's no emotion to deny).

  • UI4 should be CAI. UI doesn't modify UI, CAI does. — donri


Negated UI4 may have shifted meanings slightly. The book doesn't really specify what they mean when applied to an attitudinal (instead of just used alone), so they haven't seen much use. Consequently, there isn't much old
usage to invalidate.

Added the ability to nest fu'e and fu'o, and semantics for what happens if they are unbalanced. Also added the ability to attach an attitudinal to fu'o (which isn't mentioned in the book). None of these should alter previous usage, only add new possible uses.
