Jul23/C6 has no phonology (in the strict sense). What it has instead of sounds are numeric values in the range 0 to 127 decimal; these are called original codes. Sequences of them form morphemes, which form words; there are also some non-morphemic codes, such as (space), which are used as word separators, etc. The classes of codes are shown in the following table, along with their value ranges:
|24||63||40||other (affixes & clitics)|
|64||73||10||pronominal (affixes & clitics)|
A numeric morpheme consists of a sequence of 1 or more numeric class codes.
A string morpheme consists of a possibly empty sequence of codes preceded and followed by quote codes. The escape code appears immediately before an otherwise non-quotable code in order to quote that code. The non-quotable codes include the quote and escape codes.
An identifier morpheme consists of 2-3 alphabetic codes. If the middle bit of the 1st alphabetic code's binary value is 0, there are only 2 alphabetic codes; otherwise there are 3.
A particle morpheme consists of a single particle code, a pronominal morpheme consists of a single pronominal code, and an other morpheme consists of a single other class code. Non-token codes are also non-combining.
The orthography uses the 95 ASCII characters from 32 (space) through 126 (~). Space, hyphen (-), and possibly a couple others are used as separator characters corresponding to the original code separators.
Numeric tokens are represented by sequences of octal digits (0-7) and are always preceded by a distinguishing token. For cardinal numbers, this token is an asterisk (*). For fractional numbers, this token is a slash (/). For ordinal numbers, this token is a hatch (#). Single decimal digits (0-9) are also used for representing pronominal affixes and index assignment clitics. An apostrophe (') is inserted between a numeric token and a pronominal suffix.
Quoted strings are formed using possibly empty sequences of ASCII characters enclosed in quotes (both "). The escape character (') appears immediately before an otherwise non-quotable character in order to quote that character. The non-quotable character include the quote and escape characters.
Principal identifiers are sequences of 2 letters, the 1st of which is lower case (a-x). Additional identifiers are sequences of 3 letters, the 1st of which is upper case (A-X). Each particle is represented by a single lower case letter preceded by a period (.). In many cases, an affix (both inflectional and derivational) is represented by a single upper case letter preceded by a period (.).
Other affix and clitic tokens are represented by single non-alphanumeric characters.
The characters (, ` y z Y Z) aren't used.
The following table shows the mapping for each original code. The row labels give the 4 most significant bits (in octal) while the column labels give the 3 least significant bits (in octal). The entries give the ASCII characters and sequences for each, along with the interlinear tags (where they exist).
The following is a possible alternate writing system. It allows values from 0 to 255 (decimal) to be written with a single glyph. Each symbol is composed of 3 components: 1 from each line, representing the octal digits. The top row shows the least significant digit components and the bottom row shows the most significant digit components. The image also shows a sample combination.
There are 2 ways to use these symbols: as purely numeric, using all of them, or as codes, using only the 1st 128 (in which case each digit of a numeric morpheme is written separately).
