- Does Helleran use any of these terms, or reduced forms of them, as affixes?
Helleran has affixes for different bodyparts or body materials/substances to create neologisms (although I must work on them).
- Or as verbs or adjectives or prepositions or conjunctions or pronouns?
Some verbs are derived from the words for heart, skin, ear, etc. Many bodypart names have adjectival forms.
- What bodypart does the Megadelanian civilization think is the seat of life?
Not a bodypart but a microscopic life-form present in all cells.
- What bodypart does the Megadelanian civilization think is the seat of emotion?
The heart, the diafragma, the skin and the stomach. But it really depends on the emotion. From the point of view of the Megadelanian civilisation all four bodyparts play some role in any emotion, although only one has a main role; it is said that that one is the leading organ.
- What bodypart does the Megadelanian civilization think is the seat of consciousness?
The soul. From the point of view of the Megadelanian civilization it isn’t a bodypart but the essence of the living body.
