ah, but i am a wise and old sage! ༼ ಠoಠ ༽
in ye olde days, i even used to live in ye grand city of babel!
"༼ ಠ_ಠ ༽彡༼ ≖_≖ ༽" (and just between you and me... it still exists on the moon! but don't tell the gods i said that! ༼ ಠ_ಠ;༽ )
and to prove to you that i am in fact the sage that i say i am, i have decided to teach you some of the basics of vowel magic! ༼ ಠoಠ ༽୨
so for starters, in vowel magic, there can only be five dimensions to the phonations a human can make. in the english language, these are the so-called AEOUI formants, or the AEOUI resonances. and so you know, the AEOUI resonances themselves can be found in all natural human languages. in the japanese language, for example, the AEOUI resonances are phonated as "AH" (hiragana: あ), "EH" (H:え), "OH" (H:お), "UH" (H:う), and "EE" (H:い), respectively.
in phonetic magic, it is often useful to represent each of the resonances visually, as a five-point pentacle. and doing so will empower your phonetic spells. i will now cast a quick magic circle to show this for demonstration purposes. ༼ ಠ_ಠ ༽╭o͡͡͡━☆ﾟ.https://pastebin.com/DhWKmMc0
now i have a magic circle in which to do my phonations! ༼ ^o^ ༽/
i think for educational purposes, a spectral analysis spell would be useful to do here. as i could cast it to show you that the fundamental frequencies of each of the A, E, O, U, and I resonances are maximally different from each other, and that it is this primary characteristic that differentiates them to the human ear. although the spikes in the energy of the individual harmonics (that is, a related frequency) do play a role, of course... ༼ ಠoಠ ༽୨✎|
but *sigh* ... just casting that phonetic blast spell earlier costed me a lot of my mana points! ༼;ಠ︵ಠ;༽
so i... am... pretty... ༼-︵-༽
