The Rules & Guide-Lines Of ORa[c]tion
(This Page Is A “Living-Document”)
This is a Gener-AL list of Guide-Lines and “Rules” (not Regulations) that have and continue to re’veal them-selves to me a’bout ORa[c]tion. Some of them are also applied to “The Common Tongue”, but many Are ex’clusive to ORa[c]tion for — What-I-Hope Are — Ob’vi-ous Reasons.
Ex’Ample’s of these Guide-Lines can-Be-Seen on every Page of This of This Web-Site. This page IS Not-Only an intro’duction to ORa[c]tion, but IS also used as a tool for Me as I fORm-UL’ate the “grammar” for The Same.
- All Proper Nouns are Capitalized.
- All Pro-nouns, re’ferring to an Individual (most-often referred to as a “One”) are capitalized.
- All Ab’stract-Nouns which function as a: Title,Name, (description of a) State-Of-Be’ing, (or function as) a Subject or Object of a sentence Are Capitalized.
- All fORms of the verb, “To Be” are Capitalized.
- The wORd “IS” is al’ways Capitalized.
- The Pre-Position “Of” IS Al’ways Capitalized by the same rules as Ab’stract-Nouns.
- All pre-fixes which do-Not function as Their OR-I-gin-AL fORm are separated by a Hyphen — Example…
- “De-” means: “To Do or Cause the Reverse State-Of-Be’ing of the wORd it is attached-to”
- The mundane meaning of the wORd “Delegate” means: To Assign Some Task or Re’sponsibility to some-One.”
- If “-legate” is a de’rivation-of “Ligate”: “To Bind” — Then…
- (to) “Delegate” Some-One to some Task, means: “To Bind That One To That Task” — There-fORe, “De-” does not carry It’s True meaning.
- The Act-U-AL Term Should-Be “Ligate”. And Thus…
- “Delegate” turns-into “De’legate”
- All pre-fixes which change the condition of the Root-Word by affixing a Time-Reference to it, or by making it into It’s “opposite” are hyphenated. For example…
- All Compound-Nouns Are Hyphenated
- All Pre-Positional-Phrases Are Hyphenated
- Infinitive fORms of verbs with the particle, “to” are Hyphenated. (to-Comprehend, to-Be’gin, to-Know, etc..)
- Contractions are a product of Speech, and beyond descriptive accounts, or artistic wORks, have no place in the written-fORm Of ORa[c]tion. As-such…
- It’s Shall NEVER mean “It IS”.
- It’s Shall Al’ways & In-ALL-Ways re’Present the possessive-fORm of the pro-Noun “It”… (this IS one-of-the biggest & most-glaring errors of The English Language.)
- If One wishes to Use a con’tract-Ion for “It IS”, in the written-fORm, the con’tract-Ion “…’tIS…” IS far-better (and much more lyrical.)
- I’m Be’comes “I AM”
- He’s Be’comes: He IS
- They’ll Be’comes: They Shall (not They Will… More about this on the up-coming page a’bout “will, Will, & WILL”)
- The elimination of the wORds: “Of” & “That”, and other similar wORds when the “traditional English Grammars” say that they are “optional”… it-self IS e’liminated. In-Other-wORds: In the written fORm, these wORds are never “left-out”. This “rule” IS (as with All of These “Rules”) for-the-pur’pose-of e’liminating Con-Fusion, or the need to Speculate a’bout what IS read…
“If One Needs To Speculate A’bout The Meaning Of What One Has Read — It IS The Fault Of The One Who Has Written The WORds, Not The One Who Reads Them”
(…and this be’cause “Mind” Al’ready Knows ALL, It IS only “Man” Who “Get’s It Wrong…)
You may find that I “break” some of these “rules”. There are a few reasons that this could happen: I AM still Not-sure a’bout the “rule” yet; I AM still fORm-UL-ating the habit of that “rule”; I have Changed-My-Mind a’bout that “Rule” and have-Not-yet re-edited that occurrence of the discrepancy — Or simply that… I made a mis’take.
