In the centermost position of the energy vowel diagram is the schwa. The schwa, characterized as the "uhhh" sound, lies at the center because is the the vowel that takes the least amount energy to produce virbations with the vocal chords. It should be considered not only the primary core of all subsequent vowels, but in deed omnipresent in its outward explosion towards the strong triad vowels. At it's most relaxed and uninflected state, the schwa gains energy as it leaves the core only to lose it as it enters the consonant field through penta shifters "Y" and "W"
|Characteristics||prime energy unit|
|Mouth Configuration||mid-central (relaxed)|
|Sound||american english: "uhhh"|
The shape of each icon is determined by its classification, which is based on frequency of occurence. For example, the schwa symbol is contained in a circle, due to its uniqueness, centricity, and isolation. There are three letters in the "strong triad" group, so the triangle is used due to its three-sidedness. There are four agents in the "weak quad" group, so a quadrilateral shape is used.
|Characteristics||equilibrium, stasis, perfection|
|Mouth Configuration||open central|
|Sound||english: "ah" as in "bought"|
On the path outward from the schwa core to a strong triad, more energy is required to escape the central hub. A strong triad gets its name from one of three triperspectival orientations. For example, the sounds "U" and "I" are made by two opposing configurations of the mouth and are placed in a similarly distant arrangment.
|Characteristics||start, increase, positive|
|Mouth Configuration||closed front (smile)|
|Sound||english: "ee" as in "beef"|
The relationship between a "strong triad", "weak quad" and "shift hex" is one of cyclic flexibility. For example, between the sounds "O" and "U" lies a transitory phoneme like "oo" in "book". Between the sounds "E" and "I" is the sound "i" as in "bit". In the meta-language, the two opposing lower triads ("I" and "U") signify conceptually opposite meanings (positive and negative). The meanings are first established by the context disignator triad ("A").
|Characteristics||finish, decrease, negative|
|Mouth Configuration||closed back (smooch)|
|Sound||english: "oo" as in "boot"|
