kuwe non un sake i un kuwo un.
KUWE-NON UN-SAKE I UN-KUWO UN.
frightening-thing← not-knowing that not-afraid not.
“ignoring or being unaware of the danger is no bravery”.
This is a good example to show the basic function of Dama. The most important distinction is between a noun (KUWO, afraid) and the corresponding active verb (KUWE, to make afraid, frighten, threaten). Nouns work as passive verbs too, in contrast to the active verbs.
The verb “to be” (copula) is normally absent, but there are various ways to substitute it: I, the 3rd person pronoun, is a common means to substitute the copula.
The 3 indeclinable logical words AN (become), IN (position; there is), UN (negation) function mostly as adverbs, so placed before the verb or other word they modify, but they can be used as verbs too, at the end of a clause, before punctuation. As in this sentence, KUWE-NON UN-SAKE I UN-KUWO UN where the UN at the end means “is not”.
And everything that corresponds to a relative clause, normally goes before the word it modifies:
KUWE NO =the frightening thing. UN SAKE= does not know; UN SAKE I =the one who does not know.
Extended Dama can form derivatives: KUWO=afraid, KUAWO (KWAWO)=not afraid, brave; including abstract nouns: AKUWO=fear, AKWAWO=fearlessness, bravery. But extended Dama is only for those who have well memorized the vocabulary. Ordinary Dama forms abstracts with WANO: KUWO WANO “fear”.
However, most of the time, concrete words can replace the abstract, as in this example: when we say that the ignorant is not brave (concrete), it means that ignorance is no bravery (abstract).
Well, you can rightfully say that bravery should be expressed also in a positive way and not only through the opposite. Yes, so you can make many other terms for it, as NUNE WIJO “front’ing feeling” (the feeling that makes you front =bravery), or RITE WIJO “the feeling that makes you stand up”, or RUNE WIJO “the feeling to fight”, all these can be used for bravery. RUNE WIJO is not the same as aggressiveness, which is JIBE WIJO “the feeling to do or give something bad”.
And by the way, all the 258 roots of Dama can be used as names for God: most commonly TAME I “maker and user of the sky” and BUME I “maker of everything”, but also all other active verbs can be used as names of God; for example NISE I “the one who exposes liars” or KITE I “the one who heals”.
This is to explain that
DAMA KIWO SEN BUMO NAKO-MA NIBO
Dama speech has→ all search-to find
(The Dama language has an answer to every question). Well, indeed the full name is Dama Diwan kiwo jeno (see group with that name too), the Dama Diwan language, but when the context helps, it is enough to say DAMA KIWO.
Again note that the -N shows the direction of the object: -ON -E (NON SAKE) shows the object before its verb; -EN -O (SEN NIBO) shows the verb before its object.
There is profound wisdom in the etymology of all roots through the 12 phonemes, each phoneme being an original root. For example, W means a growth; K means decision, a targeted thing, steadiness, stability; S means possession, presence, availability. In KUWO “fear”, we have WO a growth, accumulation, achievement, which is KO targeted, and also steady, hard to move: a growth attracts envy, and it is targeted and hard to move, that is why it has fear.
Then SAKO, knowledge, is KO the steadiness, that is establishment, SA of the present, available (reality), in other words, the confirmation of the present reality.
And all that wisdom in the etymology of all the 262 morphemes is not the pride of anybody, because all the roots were defined through random (perhaps you have heard that before, i say it again for those yet unfamiliar with Dama). More etymologies, and the whole language in a nutshell here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing
I believe I have posted this to the right place, because, although one post cannot present a whole language, yet this one presents all the main points of Dama, in a more mature way than a post I had put here before a year or more. Still if you think it clutters the forum, please feel free to move it to another forum - or delete the post altogether.

Does it know why the answer to the great question about life, the universe and everything is 42?

Or which came first, the chicken or the egg? Or why the chicken crossed the road? (Hint: To learn more about its family history! This is an old joke from a cartoon version of our family history my brother drew years ago)

The Voynich manuscript was written in Dama.
Basque is really just corrupted Dama.
Dama was the language of Adam and Eve.
Dama can be spoken faster than the speed of light.

If anything, Dama is raw and uncut mentalese instead of that Cro Magnon-blabber.
