pad

The pad refers to geometry or a shape. The edisA have a very strong understanding of geometric concepts. pad is a patterned set of vocabulary that has a form that denotes the dimension and degree of the shape in question. It is not a concept that applies to a fixed Euclidean space, but rather any n-space, curved, warped, hyperbolic, or any non-Euclidean.

Historicaly this vocabulary, and the ability to reason with a more complicated system derives from a variety of anomolies that exist on their home planet. Areas of the world have varying gravitation factors which cause very regular warpings, but other parts of the world have strong electronic fields, radiative material, or other anomolies which cause both distortions in perception and physical morphing that lead to very unusual results.

kpad (Regular Geometry)

kpad is the patterned portion of the language which refers to all regular shapes. Still bear in mind at this point that regular shapes can be very non-regular if you consider basic human geometry. k at the start of the word indicates regular geometry, whereas a e would indicate irregular geometry.

kpaowd (Regular Dimensional Indication)

The root for dimensional indication is paowd, note the insertion of the word ow into the word for shape (ow means number). The insertion is replaced with a number, lacking the letter ow, in order to indicate the type of n-space in question.

kpeowd (Regular Two Dimensional Geometry)

Following the same pattern as before, the letter e is used to indicate 2-dimensional objects. The insertion is replaced with a number, as before, to indicate the number of sides a shape has.

kpoowd (Regular Three Dimensional Geometry)

Following the same pattern as before, the letter o is used to indicate 3-dimensional shapes. The insertion is replaced with a number, as before, to indicate the number of faces a shape has.

In the table below the closest shape has been used to indicate a possible translation.

kpuowd (Regular Four Dimensional Geometry)

Following the same pattern as before, the letter u is used to indicate 4-dimensional shapes. The insertion is replaced with a number, as before, to indicate the number of faces a shape has.

This section is primarily included to note that the edisA have developed the ability to conceptualize in a fourth dimension. This ability is primarily limited to reasoning within the third dimension though; it proves useful to be able to deal with a morphing and warping three dimensions by considered it within the context of a fourth.

epad (Irregular Geometry)

There is a concept of irregular geometry, which is no more than a collection of terms that are used to describe the shape of objects, where the shape doesn't necessarily provide any definitive shape as would regular geometry.
