The Rules & Guide-Lines Of ORa[c]tion

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.

Capitalization
  • All Proper Nouns are Capitalized.
  • All Pro-nouns, re’ferring to an Individual (most-often referred to as a “One”) are capitalized:  (He, She, It, They, Them Their, His, Her, It’s, Me, I, You, We, Us, My, Your, One, Other, etc.)
  • 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.
“Puncture”-ation
  • 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…
    • Un-WILL-ing
    • Non-Aggresive
    • Pre-ORdain’ed
    • Post-Dated
  • 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..)
Specifics
  • 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”…  (the fact that it IS-NOT this way in The English language IS one-of It’s biggest & most-glaring errors.)
      • If One wishes to Use a con’tract-Ion for “It IS”, in the written-fORm, the con’tract-Ion “…’tIS…” IS far-better, makes more sense, and IS far 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”
~Az

(…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.

Please Bare With Me.  Or, per’haps You have some in-Sight or suggestion that You would-like to-share.  Please-Do.
