[comments] "be"
'be'.'<name>'
the 'be' particle prefixes any given name
- bejohn -> bejone
- bealexander -> bejalezanedere
- beelizabeth -> bejilezabeta
- besarah -> besara

'ja'.'be'.''
the 'ja' particle prefixes any given name that is a surname
- jabehamilton -> jabehameletone
- jabejohnson -> jabejonesone
- jabethurgood -> jabeturegude
- jabesmith -> jabesemite

Obviously, it would be generally impractical to say or prefix 'be' each time a name appears in conversation or in writing. In short written texts, single sentences, or in conversation: only the name may be given as both the reader or listener is expected to know the name in context. If a person is not expected to know the name, then the particle may be used to emphasize that it is a person 'bejone' and not 'jone' meaning "2.many.PL?".

When naming colloquially.
- bejohn, come here.
- i need to see bejohn.

Becomes.
- john, come here.
- i need to see john

In long written texts are paragraphs, in which many people are refereed, it is expected to list names starting with the 'be' particle, or to name an organization or company with the 'bo' particle.

In much longer texts, books, or technical documents. It is proper etiquette to use the semantic variables the language provides 'qa' in order to reduce the need to switch between pronouns when writing the name of a protagonist in a story, or in long descriptions, where the name of a person or organization may be referred to many times. Additionally, can be used to define nouns in legal documents, or other technical applications.

When naming professionally.
- bejohn, come here.
- i need to see bejohn.
- where is bealice.
- miss jabesmith and mister jabehamilton both need to be at the bojpmorgan meeting.

Becomes
- qa su bejohn jabehamilton. qe ka bealice jabesmith. qi bojpmorgan.
= <var 1> is male john hamilton. <var 2> is female alice smith. <var 3> is organization jp morgan.
- qa, come here.
- i need to see qa.
- where is qe
- qe and qa both need to be at the qi meeting.

Setting all of the variables initially as definitions will save much space in the text of longer documents, and will provide the reader with much more specific reference. Additionally, this lessens the impact of pronoun spam in fictional stories.

- she went to the house and got her things. alice went down the road and was stopped by a wolf. she screamed "no", and began to run. she was pounced by the wolf. she was licked all over her face. alice was surprised.

- qa alice. qe wolf. qa went to the house and got her things. qa went down the road and was stopped by qe. qa screamed "no", and began to run. qa was pounced by qe. qa was licked all over her face. qa was surprised.

Of course, realistically, no story would be told in this simple manner outside of children's books. However, one can see that it could prove useful. Since 'the wolf' definite, is simply 'qe'; the use of the article 'the' in 'she was pounced by the wolf' was reduced to 'by qe', as 'the wolf' singular and definite had been assigned. As no other wolf was assigned, it could be assumed that the story contains only one.
