Omoko

Glyph of the word 'omoko'.

omoko

  • (v.) to reason, to use logic (or some form of rational line of reasoning)
  • (n.) reason
  • (adj.) characterized by rational thought or rational thinking

A omoko ipe katava tou!
“That palmtree is capable of rational thought!”

Notes: I think a palmtree would be a wise leader: Mighty, yet dancy.

I’ve had this word for awhile. It doesn’t necessarily mean the same thing as “reason” in English, but it’s close enough for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It’s like reason/logic, but without the history. It’s about having reasons for thinking and doing things, as opposed to doing them without thinking about them. That’s why it’s built off omo, “to think”.
