About Dracheim

How Dracheim

In 2022, amidst an internship, revisiting anthropology, contemplating computer assistance, and digitizing the establishment of a virtual nation, the rise and fall of a civilization seemed particularly intriguing. Coincidentally, with some background in Latin and Icelandic, a nomenclature came to mind, leading to the naming of a country. Recalling the compilation of Nordic mythology by a guru, it seemed as if I had encountered this 'Niflheim' hence naming it Dracheim.'

2022 实习之余,重温人类学,想着计算机辅助,数字化建立一个虚拟国度,一个文明的兴衰甚是有趣。正好之前有点拉丁语和冰岛语基础,想到个系统构词法,这就命名一个国家。 想起大佬整理的北欧神话,好像在哪看见这个Niflheim 死人之国,这就命名Dracheim。


All nouns in Dracheim are named using systematic naming principles; arbitrary names do not adhere to the logical construction of entity nouns. Nomenclature for human cities, geography, personal names, religions, and other nouns typically derive from basic morphemes. For instance, '河北' (HeiBei) refers to 'north of the river'; 'Jerusalem' = 'yarah, shalom,' signifies a foundation of peace. Haphazard naming, aside from its mystique, lacks meaning. Thus, nouns formed from specific etymology and morphemes generally exhibit a complete logical chain. The nomenclature of entities of Dracheim is base on Latin, Chinese, Nordic, English and other PIE* etymology .

Dracheim 的所有名词都采用系统命名法命名,随便的命令不符合实体名词构造逻辑,人类城市、地理、人名、宗教等名词命名, 通常是由基本语素构成,如河北是指河以北,Jerusalem (耶路撒冷) = yarah, shalom 构建和平的城市,胡乱的命名除了玄乎其乎,并无意义。 因此按特定词源、语素构成的名词,一般是逻辑链完备的。
