Section 19



We have already said taht the plural is formed by a small line down at the right
side of the picto:

This is fairly simple. But the following question arises: Should we limit the plural sign only to nouns and pronouns (as is normally the case in English) or should we use the sign also with adjectives and all forms of verbs? Our answer is to limit the pictos to the minimun and therefore if the sentence can be understood without those additional pictos, they should not be picted at all.

So it is correct to pict adjectives and verbs without the plural sign. Examples:


The plural of the picto Thing: The word Thing is used in plural so often, that is has two forms of plural: and . This second form---two things together--- is very handy, as we shall see quite often in the book.
