EL indicators to show a type of special sentence (Idiomatic Setting 1)

. . . . . . Index of Grammar

Traditional languages usually each have an idiomatical polite way for a conversation; and others need time to learn about it, besides that language. If careless about it, friction could happen between cultures.
A common language, EL should avoid the problem, clearing the point of the purpose of a sentence to work with others.

Then EL idiomatically uses an indicator of joined characters at the beginning of a sentence to work with others.
English users might think them impolite through the direct translations. But simplicity and clearness are the polite and kind elements in the EL world, especially for EL signing.

To work with others

To call other's attention . Interrogative types .
Imperative types . Exclamatory types

Answering, Appreciation, celebration, apology, etc.
Visual expressions
Honorific and despising expressions

: The almighty greeting symbol in EL
{: globe, : peace,{ continuous, eternal, balance/harmonious}
( is a spinning top shape balancing by always moving)

The symbol, helps to start a communication, and to close the communication between Earth People. In a letter or email, the message starts after this.
Also this hand-sign or the vocal-symbol [bo-na-fee-na-wa] works for just a general greeting when you are going to pass by someone, as Hello, Good morning, Good day, Good evening, Good bye etc.

There are various direct meanings for a greeting word in the world, but most of them have a peace-sought image in the meaning. So EL is set similarly for the standard greeting.
Of course you can add or create your own expressions.

Indicators with a couple of to work with others at the beginning of a sentence

EL is free for word order in a sentence;
and an order of SVO, VSO or whatever order doesn't tell what kind of sentence.

Instead, idiomatic joined-characters distinguish kinds of sentences.
At the beginning of somebody's talking to you, you can know what kind he started to work with you for: asking, requiring, commanding or just getting your attention, etc. through a key ideogram between two at the beginning.
So you immediately know what the other wants at first, and you can ready to get the contents.

To call other's attention

: "Hey!" or "Attention please"

(39) means sense and feeling.
This base is for focusing any kind of sense of the other people (person) in this indicator;
as 'Attention please', 'Listen!', 'Look!', 'Touch and feel!', 'Smell!' and 'Taste!' or just 'Hey!.'

When calling a particular person (or people) with this, add the name or the substitute title in the beginning phrase. This phrase is an addition of a sentence, so even if the subject of this sentence is not at the beginning but next to it, the subject-indicator is not necessary.

  : Hey, lady! you dropped something.
: {T < y } (a title of honor for woman}, : {t 1 }(dropping)
: {`; d ? }: something (a particular thing that the talker isn't sure what it is)

Interrogative types

Using the indicator, : May I inquire you (something)?

has a similar shape to the traditional question mark, and it shows a wondering situation.
All interrogative sentences have this indicator,  .When seeing this, the sender has a question wanting the answer.

Also the spot of the inquiry has another in an interrogative sentence.
Where, when, why, which way, what result, how much, how large, etc., all those interrogative ideograms include the base in each base overlay, combining with the matter that the questioner wants to know.
The wondering spot in an inquiry is indicated by one of these interrogative characters or just putting in front of the questioning ideogram/ideograms. See the #57 section of the EL Dictionary about those interrogative ideograms.
When wondering if it's true or not about a verb phrase in a sentence, is compounded on top of the verb-symbol or in front of the verb-symbol. So it is always easy to know that the other is making a question and it is about what.

: What (or Who) is she?
: she, : be as existing,
The talker wants to know what she is. (The complement is the point of the question)
: Which person is she?
(The subject person is the point of the question)
: Is she (there)?
(The verb is the point of the question, wondering if she is or not.)
: How is she?
: be as a condition; The talker wants to know her condition.

: Which flower do you like?
: which (among limited flowers), : flower, : you,
: liking, being fond of
( In this case, the direct object of the sentence shown by is the point of question.)

: What (kind of) flower do you like?
(among flowers without limits)

at the end of a sentence: ..., isn't it? ..., didn't you?

As saying “It's one thirty now, isn't it?” or “You didn't go there yesterday, did you?”,
we sometimes describe our opinion first and ask others to make it sure.

For this type of interrogative sentence, the indicator is added at the end of a wondering sentence.
means “or,” and the indicator  means “…, or another opinion do you have?”
multiple indicates a pause/reverberation, so no period is needed after this.

  : She was there at that time, wasn't she?
: (at) the time, then, (the place in a topic): there
: past tense be; was (in this case)

  : This building is not her house, is it?
: this (pointing close thing), : building, {denied "be"}: is/are not
{building x home}: house

Ending with : Wondering to him/herself:

Sometimes you might talk to yourself but to touch a chord with others around you.
In this kind of case, express your idea or wondering point first, and put this ending.
The ending pose shown by two dots makes us feel that the talker is not so confident on his/her idea.
  : I wonder if she was there.
: I wonder why?
(When the other knows about the situation, you need not all parts of a sentence in EL)

Imperative types

... : ( Could you ) please do (something)

has a shape of scooping to get something, meaning “demand.”
This joined characters indicator works for general requesting, forming an imperative sentence putting it at the beginning of a sentence. It is not especially polite, nor impolite.

For expressing the request more modestly or strongly as commanding, compound each meaning base on top of . The sentences with indicator requests something to someone directly. So this kind of sentence doesn't need a subject.
For calling someone to request something, the manner is the same as “the indicator for attention.”

: Please write your name here.
{this x place}: here, : your (in this case, modifying the next noun), : name
{being on a plane}: written, drawn

Could you please read this, and make me understand the contents?
: reading (recognizing through eyes),: understood (recognition goes through),
: contents

To request from a little more humble standpoint:
..... :
Could you do me a favor.....?, If you could, may I ask you....

Requesting something to someone who isn't expecting it, it would be better to do it with more modest manner. For this kind of case, (wish) is used instead of only in the request indicator, and send the message with the composition of the sentence as “I wish you do something in my mind and hesitate to ask if it's all right to you.”

: If you could, may I ask you to dance with me?
{action, move, energy-open}: dance,
{preposition mark, joining}: with, : me (in this case, with )

: Could you do me a favor to open that window?
: open, : that (pointing far something), {eye of a room}: window

To command strongly:
: This is a command, (do .....!)

Forcing someone to do something, the base, (means power, force) is compounded on top of in the request indicator. The base overlay, means “a command.”

  : Get up, or you will be late.
{ torso, upturn}: get up (with )
: future tense verb-symbol, {time x behind x be}: be late (with )

To call others to do something together:
(or ): Let's.....

Here (joined) is compounded on top of and also the verb-symbol.
The sentence with this indicator and the verb shows that the subject of this sentence is
not only you, The talker is joining you, and suggests doing something both together.

: Let's go through this road.
( the people who go are you and me together)
{gd,25} / {heading + move}: go (with ), {preposition mark, way}: through, {going through place}: road

For suggesting a little more modestly or hesitate to suggest,

the hesitate and polite ending can be added, as same as a type of interrogative sentence.

Let's go through this road, or do you have any other ideas?

Exclamatory types

: Ah! / : Oops!

In a conversation, sometimes an emotional sound comes up.
For describing it, expressing the sound part with the EL phonetics is one way.
By that way, it might be interesting to know differences of emotional sound between cultures.
But sometimes it would be hard to know each other’s feeling by that. When expressing using ideograms, these joined-indicators are used as below.

{heart x move}: emotion; this is for an emotional expression,
{heart x wave}: surprised ; this is for a surprised or frightened expression.

When these ideograms are at the beginning of a sentence between two dots, it works like an emotional voice or an exclamation mark. Read them in your traditional sounds.
Voices from happiness and from anger are different. When you’d like to distinguish the feelings of sounds, you can also use other –included ideograms as you feel. The ideograms related to emotions are in #68 section in the dictionary.

Ah..!, nobody can listen to this story without tears.
{zero x  person}: nobody, {verb-mark x possible}: can
{ears x accepted}: listen to (with )
{flowing x contents}: story, {preposition x not}: without
{eyes x water}: tears, weeping

Oh my god! At such a place like this, I'm seeing her!..

The following sentence looks similar to the above example,
but the meaning is very different. In this case, the ideogram, isn’t used as a part of an indicator; and the meaning is gotten through just general rules.

    : ”Emotion, question,” these are psychological works.
(There is no another dot for the indicator at the beginning.)
