Qqíhr Totnissh

Qqíhr Totnissh

So far, Jamaican Oy’Nissh Language, or Oy’Nissh, has given rise to the character base writing called Veeliksa. One such character first appeared in the publication called Terinéssha (https://www.oynissh.com/product/terinessha-vertical-framed-premium-gallery-wrap-canvas-veeliksa/). This is a poem, or Vétémete, with the English word destined translated as nigréryn. The final design was a fishlike character which I start using in art and design since March of 2021.

Nigréryn

One feature of this Veeliksa is that is has the colours of the Jamaican flag which are black, gold, and green – as do all Veelikaí. Eight nigréryn characters combine to form a floral cluster and give rise to the art and design collection called totnissh. Until now, all the Veelikaí were the above colours until the verb ducweeurina came about. It simply means changing the three colour patterns of the character to one. This isolation technique now give rise to the qqíhr totnissh or mono totnissh. Qqíhr is pronounced as in the English “choir”. My first pattern from this new works is the merlot totnissh. I only come to learn about the colour today, August 17/08/21. I really like this and soon discovered that it works well on a black background. So I hope you continue to journey with me as the language develops. It is still early days but what is exciting about this is that there are new discoveries each day. Awesome!
