Warning: This requires you to do some simple math. Please make sure
you can handle addition, subtraction, and the concept of negative
numbers.
The following decoding technique also requires that you know which
Espruar and Dethek symbols correspond to which Roman letters. One
such translation can be found in: dethek-espruar-roman.gif
Below is listed each code word on the code wheel, in alphabetical
order, with a number in parenthesis to the left. Consider that number
associated with the first letter of the matching code word.
To find the correct code word for a given Dethek and Espruar symbol
pair, find the number in parenthesis corresponding to each given
symbol (i.e. go down the list of words until you find one that starts
with the same number or letter as the value of the symbol, and then
take the value in parenthesis to the left). If the value of the
Dethek symbol is D, and the value of the Espruar symbol is E, then the
formula to find the code word value is:
E - (36 - D) + P
where P is the path value of 0 for dots, 12 for dots/dashes, and 24
for dashes. If the resulting number is greater than 36, subtract 36.
If it is less than zero, add 36.
Example 1:
The Espruar letter is A (1), and the Dethek letter is G (6), and
the path is dashes (24), so the code word is associated with:
1 - (36-6) + 24
= 1 - 30 + 24
= -5 + 36
= 31 -> 5GUNGA
Example 2:
The Espruar letter is U (21), and the Dethek letter is W (23), and the
path is dots/dashes (12), so the code word is associated with:
21 - (36-23) + 12
= 21 - 13 + 12
= 20 -> TEMPLE
