Glyph of the word 'foyo'.


  • (v.) to choose, to decide on, to select
  • (n.) choice, decision (the act or process of)
  • (adj.) chosen, selected

A foyo ei i ia, Pikatiu!
“I choose you, Pikachu!”

Notes: Hooray for Pikachu, the adorable little thunder mouse! In case it’s been long enough that you’ve forgotten who Pikachu is, here he is!


Isn’t he cute! He’s waving his little arm! I’m quite fond of that which is cute.

This is yet another setup word for translating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. I think it’s pretty straightforward, today’s word. Just happened that way. It’s more to pick something than to decide between different options, if that makes sense. The example sentence is quite appropriate.

    How could someone forget who pikachu is? He is a symbol of happiness and, with the greedy slogan “gotta catch ‘em all” in mind, of the virtue of being satisfied with little, because you know Pikachu will always be at your side. He is indeed cute.

    the Pikachu’s body language seems to be saying “And now, here, I present _foyo_!”

    seriously, I’ve been enjoying the word derivations and the words they come from, and I fully believe you can continue deriving however long you want to.

    have nice days and be well.

    Hey SLiV; sorry your posts got tagged as spam. They should come through fine from now on.

    I’m glad to see that there are others who understand the virtues of the mighty Pikachu! Or, in his words, “Pika, pika pi, pika pika!
