One of the fundamental concepts in ODODU is that it is a derivational language. This implies that the words of ODODU are all interrelated and therefore can be ranked according to their complexity and the archetypal foundations of their meanings. Simple words, such as those containing only one consonant, will have a more general and more archetypal meaning than will more complex words, such as those having two or more consonants. The meaning of words containing one consonant will also be more closely related to the meaning of compound words which also contain that consonant, than they will be to words which do not contain that consonant.
In addition to this type of ranking according to complexity and archetypal generality and specificity, there is a commitment to constructing ODODU so that the meaning of more complex words can be derived, at least in part, from the meaning of the constituent consonants and vowels. Thus a compound word containing two consonants should be at least partially derivable from the derivations of the single consonant words that can be formed from the consonants in the compound word.
For this to happen in a practical and workable manner there needs to be a protocol for constructing compound words from simple words. There also needs to be a formula for deriving the meaning of the compound words from a combination of the meaning of the consonants in their constituent simple words, the meaning of the interconnecting vowels in the compound word, and the experience of the language creating consciousness. This means that anyone who uses ODODU should be able to derive an approximate meaning of any compound word from an understanding of the foundational structure and design of the language. You don't have to memorize the definitions of compound words if you know the derivations of their constituent letter concepts.
We also want to be able use compound words effectively in conversations with other ODODU users. If we have derived the meaning of a compound word from our understanding of the ODODU structure, and our personal experience, then how will we know if another speaker in a conversation will understand what we mean by that compound word. To insure that a conversation between two speakers is accurate will require the establishment of a covariance between them so that there is some form of understanding of their relative experiences and how this will influence their respective derivational activities. This will bring cultural contexts and the history of personal interactions into the process of communication as well as the structure of language itself. (See A Pragmatic Process for the Evolution of ODODU for more discussion.)
The derivational process for the construction of meaning in compound words containing two consonants will build on all of the derivations of the cores of words having one vowel, one consonant, or one consonant and one vowel. Thus all words of format VVV, VJV, or VJVV will be used in the formation of words with format VJVJV or VJVJV*V (as before, V represents any vowel, V* represents any primary vowel, U,I,E, or A, and J represents any consonant). The key component in this process will be to identify an archetypal interpretation of how each vowel will function when it is located between two consonants in a two consonant compound word.
To begin this process consider the derivations of the UVU words:
operation, interaction, interrelation
Also consider the expanded derivation of the HVU words as presented in the mathematics section The Derivation of Numbers and Mathematics
HUU addition: This is a relation which defines a new self. It is a relation which associates various components with each other to create a new self comprising those components and is thus a form of self relation. It is an embodiment of the concept of the succession of numbers which through the addition on one to a prior number generates the Natural or counting numbers and hence the integers once certain additional preliminaries have been established.
The combination of these derivations leads to an interpretation of how the middle vowel in JVJ core words acts to generate a new derivation of meaning for that core. This interpretation of the role of the middle vowel, when combined with the derivations of the UJU words for each of the two consonants in the JVJ core, will generate the protocol or formula for the derivation of that JVJ core. The process will be mitigated to some degree relative to the experience of the language creating consciousness as describe above.
The initiating interpretation of the derivational nature of the middle vowel when placed between two consonants in a JVJ core, shown as J1VJ2 where J1 is the first consonant, and J2 is the second consonant, is as follows:
U and, association. This is a sequential association such as, J1 and J2, but in the sense that J1 is first. Thus J2 is associated with J1 but again in the sense that J1 is first. J2 with J1. J2 the successor to J1.
I of, part of. The J2 part of J1. The J2 aspect of J1.
E cause. The J2 category of J1. The J2 cause of J1.
A negative, minus, without. J1 without J2.
O subsumption, bound. J1 subsuming J2. J1 bounding J2. J1 constraining or the constraint of J2.
Q transition, cross. J1 transitioning through or out of J2.
Y representation. J1 representing J2.
H integration, interconnection, interrelation. J1 is encountered first but is fully integrated with, or interconnected with, or interrelated with J2.
This can be simplified to;
