まったく、最近はみんな新作新作って、いい加減にしてよ。
新機種が出たからって、それに便乗して新作とか言わないでよね。
それよりも、もっと先に言うことがあるでしょ?
新作も良いけど、オリジナルの新機種を作って、とか。
とりあえず37型液晶モニターに5.1チャンネルスピーカーシステムは標準装備で、ゲーム機一台あればテレビはいらないって感じで。
ガストオリジナルのゲーム機、
どう、そっちの方が欲しいと思わない?
まあ、値段は6桁くらい行くと思うけど、頑張って稼ぎなさい。

Really, everyone is going around with the "new new" thing. Stop it already.
Just because something new came out, don't tell me I have to use it immediately.
Aside from that, should we look into it further?
New versions of anything are good, but there's still a lot left that can be made with their originals.
For starters, it's like a mere TV becoming useless by just having a game console, as the 37 inches LCD monitors with 5.1 channel audio systems already have become the standard in current console gaming.
And wouldn't you want too a
GUST original gaming system?
Well, I think the price would end up on the six digits range, so do your best earning that.

ミ ュールとシュレリア様とでは、どっちの方が胸が大きいですか?
(くるぶし)

Between Mir and Shurelia, who has the larger breasts?

詳しくは言えないけど、あなたに良い言葉を教えてあげるわ。
五十歩百歩、ドングリの背比べ、似たり寄ったり。
あの二人が大きさで対立したら、誰でもみんなこの言葉が浮かぶこと間違い無しよ。まあ、本人達の前で言ったら二人を同時に敵に回すことになるだろうから、命の保障は無いけどね。
とりあえず、二人とも私未満、ってことで良いかしら?

I won't tell you in detail but, I'll let you in on something good.
50-steps and 100-steps, when both are compared, they seem like the same exact thing.
Those two have them big enough that when confronting them, no one could avoid remembering these words. Well, if we said these things right at their faces, we'd end up becoming enemies of them both, so there's no guarantee of survival after that now, is there?
For now, they both aren't quite as full as me. Or isn't that a satisfactory enough answer for you?

いよいよクライマックスを迎えそうな気がするヒュムノス語講座!
今回は、ヒュムノスの歴史について語ってみましょう。

This Hymmnos Lecture feels like we have come to a climax!
This time, we'll talk about the history of Hymmnos.

▼▼ヒュムノス語の成り立ち
詩魔法…といいますか、言葉によって発生する超常現象が見つかったのは、第一紀の遙か前、紀元前の時代です。
その頃はまだ「ヒュムノス語」という体系は無く、何となく「いーーーやっ!」と言えばこの効果、「やはっ」でこの効果、などという曖昧な約束事があった程度でした。そしてテクノロジの結晶であるレーヴァテイルが生まれる遙か昔ですから、「月奏」という祈祷師が、この体系化されていない詩魔法の前身を発音し、自然界から力をもらっていました。
その後、なぜ「いーーーやっ」が「この効果」なのか、の研究がなされ、「い」「ー」「や」「っ」にそれぞれどんな効能があるかが体系化されました。この1文字単位の意味の時代を「律史前月読(りっしぜんつくよみ)」と言いまして、この頃はまだヒュムノスとは言っていません。律史前月読は、例えば「z」なら「神」、「y」なら「光」という風に、1文字ごとに意味が付けられ、それを法則に従って並べていくという単純なものでした。その為、その並べ方によって効果効率が全然違い、更には術者一人一人の熟練と経験に大きく左右されるものだったのです。
その後、更にその配列を吟味し、ある一定の配列を1ブロックとして見るような技術が発生します。それこそが「ヒュムノス」の原点です。例えば「hymme(謳う)」は英単語のようですが、実際は律史前月読の「h」「y」「m」「e」の組み合わせ法則であり、ヒュムノスとしての意味は意訳で「謳う」となっていますが、直訳では「神の愛による大いなる救い」という意味配列なのです。
このようにして、何百、何千の意味配列が出来、「ヒュムノス語」という単語群の体系が確立しました。月奏達は、これにより効率よく、誰もがそれなりに大きな力を出すことが出来るようになったのです。
そしてその後、生まれたのがレーヴァテイルです。巨大なスーパーコンピューターでもある塔「アルトネリコ」には、このヒュムノス語という体系をそのまま、プログラム言語として登録されています。レーヴァテイルが謳うとき、その詩はアルトネリコによって増幅され、月奏が謳う何百倍もの力となって放出されるようになりました。
こうして、レーヴァテイル全盛の時代が到来し、「ヒュムノス語」といえばレーヴァテイルの言語、と言われるようになったのです。

▼▼How the Hymmnos Language came to be
What we call Song Magic... or better said, provoking paranormal phenomena by pronouncing words, was discovered far before the First Era, during the period we call BC.
Back then, the system we know as "Hymmnos Language" didn't exist, and instead there were very ambiguous conventions about an uttering like "iiiiya!" having a effect, other like "yahaa" having its own effect, and such. And since this was long before the crystallization of technology we call Reyvateils were born, some shamans called the "Moon Chanters" were the ones who could receive power from mother nature by pronouncing this non-standardized predecessor to the current Song Magic.
Later on, they began wondering why "iiiya" had "the effects it had", and upon researching it, they made up a system in which "i", "y" and "a" had their own effects. This was when the era of "Carmena Foreluna", in which each letter has a specific meaning, began; although we couldn't call this "Hymmnos" just yet. As mentioned previously, each letter had a meaning in Carmena Foreluna, such as for example, "y" meaning "Light" and "z" meaning "God", and by following these rules, you could simply line them up to make up words. Therefore, the order in which you put them would completely change their effects, and furthermore, this also caused large differences in ability and experience from a practitioner to other.
Much later on on, they began carefully researching the ordering of the letters, and discovered they could put them in a block with a specific order. That was the actual point of origin for "Hymmnos". For example, while the word "hymme (to sing)" looks like this written in Latin characters, in Carmena Foreluna it's actually composed of the combination of the letters "h", "y", "m" and "e", so while in Hymmnos it means "to sing", a more rough translation of the letters and the order in which they are put would be something to the effect of "great salvation with the love of the Gods".
It was in this way that the vocabulary system for the "Hymmnos language" was established several centuries, even millenia ago. And this allowed the Moon Chanters to display a power greater than anyone else and with much better efficiency.
And later on, the Reyvateils were born and the Hymmnos language was registered as a programming in the great super computer located in the Tower of "Ar tonelico". Thus, when the Reyvateils sing, their Songs are amplified by Ar tonelico, allowing them to release a power a hundred times greater than that the Moon Chanters had when they sang their own songs.
And in this way, when the golden era of the Reyvateils came, the "Hymmnos language" came to be known as the language of the Reyvateils.

▼ヒュムノス語には沢山の方言がある
地球にも日本語、英語などがあるように、ヒュムノス語にも様々な言語があります。
それらのことを「律(りつ)」と呼びます。律というのは音楽用語で、簡単に言ってしまえば「12音階のチューニング方法の種類」みたいなものですが、ヒュムノスの「律」は、方言として認識すると分かりやすいでしょう。
律には沢山の種類がありますが、第三紀における主流な律は、以下のモノがあります。

・律史前月読
もっとも古に存在した、ヒュムノスの原点。この段階ではまだ「ヒュムノス」とは言わない。 「発音(文字)」と「意味」が一元的で、文字1つ単位で意味や効果がある。しかし、その効果の程は小さい。 現在(第三紀)では、唯一レーヴァテイルがサポートしていない言語。

・クルトシエール律
律史前月読を体系化し、幾つかの文字を並べてその1セット(=単語)で1つの効果を生み出すように創られた。
この時点で初めて「ヒュムノス」と言われるようになる。
クルトシエール律は、古来の人間祈祷師「月奏(つきかなで)」と、塔の恩恵を受けることが出来る人工生命「レーヴァテイル」の両方が使っていた言語。しかし、同じ単語を発音しても、月奏は自然から微々たる力しかもらえないのに対し、レーヴァテイルは塔から強大な力を引き出すことが出来、その発動ロジックは全然別物。

・中央正純律
ヒュムノス語の世界共通規格として創られた一群。その殆どはクルトシエール律そのものであり、肥大化したクルトシエール律の単語を厳選し、最適化することを目的として創られた。国際標準規格(ISO)のようなヒュムノス語群。

・古メタファルス律
ゲーム「アルトネリコ」の世界とは遠く離れた地域「メタ・ファルス」独自の発展を遂げたヒュムノス語。非常に複雑で長い単語形態が特徴で、難易度も高いが、その分効果が強い。一応「アルトネリコ」サーバー内にもライブラリがあるので、レーヴァテイルは謳うことが出来るが、その力は全盛時代の100%ではない。

・アルファ律(オリジンスペル)
これだけは特殊で、唯一「律史前月読」からの「文字1つずつの意味からの発展」ではない形態。何かと言えば、塔の管理者がその塔にプログラムした、人工的な単語なのである。だから、他の律の単語は人間が発音しても(微々たる)力が発揮できるが、オリジンスペルは全く発揮しない。塔というコンピューターがあって、初めて効果を出すものである。
それ故、完全にレーヴァテイル専用の単語になるが、当たり前であるが効果がでかい上に単語も短く簡単、という事になる。

・クラスタ律
ゲーム「アルトネリコ」の世界とは遠く離れた地域「ソル・クラスタ」が独自に開発したヒュムノス語。遙か昔、ソル・クラスタ地域は、ゲームの舞台であるソル・シエール地域に対して敵対心を燃やしていたため、中央正純律よりも強力な言語体系を必死に編み出そうとしていた。その結果生まれたのがこのクラスタ律である。

・新約パスタリエ
唯一第三紀に作られたと言われる、もっとも新しいヒュムノス言語。もっとも非人間的な言語と言われており、既に人間が文章を構築できる域を超えているという。短い時間で最強の効果を…という研究が、言語をプログラムにしてしまったのだ。

▼The Hymmnos language Has Several Dialects
Similarly to how you have languages like English and Japanese on Earth, the Hymmnos language also has several languages within itself.
These are called "Notes". While in musical terminology the Notes are like something that can be simply explained as being "the types of tuning for the 12 musical scales", the "Notes" in Hymmnos can be easily recognized as being the dialects for it.
While there are several kinds of Notes, the most commonly used ones in the Third Era are the following.

・Carmena Foreluna
The oldest one and the point of origin for Hymmnos, although we couldn't call it "Hymmnos" at this stage. Each "pronunciation (letter)" has a specific "meaning", and by fusing them into a single word, they can have effects. However, these effects are generally very weak. In the current times (the Third Era), this is the only language that isn't supported by the Reyvateils.

・Kurt Ciel Note
This Note was created by systematizing Carmena Foreluna in a way that the many letters could be ordered in a set (word) that gave off a specific effect.
It's from this point on that it could be called Hymmnos.
The Kurt Ciel Note was a language used both by the ancient human shamans "Moon Chanters", and by the artificial life forms "Reyvateils" in order to receive the blessings of the tower. However, even if they pronounced the same words, the Reyvateils can draw a far greater power from the Tower than the small amount power the Moon Chanters can from nature, this being due to the execution logic for their Songs being completely different from each other.

・Central Standard Note
A group of words that was created to be the common world standard for Hymmnos. It's mostly formed by the Kurt Ciel Note, as it was created to be an expanded and optimized form of said Note by carefully selecting words from it. We could also say that it's the international standard (ISO) for Hymmnos.

・Ancient Metafalss Note
An unique type of Hymmnos language that was developed in the region of "Metafalss", located very far away from the world where the game "Ar tonelico" is set. As it features extremely complex and long words, it has a high degree of difficulty, but thanks to it, it also has very strong effects. As it was once registered into the libraries of the "Ar tonelico" server, the Reyvateils can also sing it, but they don't reach the 100% of the power it once displayed on its golden era.

・Alpha Note (Origin Spells)
This is the only Note that has the particularity of not "being developed by combining the meanings of its component letters" from "Carmena Foreluna". If we had to define it in some way, it would be the artificial words that the Tower Administrators programmed into their respective Towers. Therefore, even though the humans can exhibit (extremely weak) power by pronouncing the words from other Notes, nothing would happen if they pronounced any of the words from the Origin Spells. These words will only have an effect through the computer we call the Tower.
Therefore, while these are words completely exclusive to the Reyvateils, they can naturally exhibit great effects despite having short and simple pronunciations.

・Cluster Note
An unique type of Hymmnos language that was developed in the region of "Sol Cluster", located very far away from the world where the game "Ar tonelico" is set. As long ago the region of Sol Cluster burned with hostility towards the region where the game is set, Sol Ciel, they made incredibly great efforts to develop a language that had a power even greater than the Central Standard Note. What was born as a result of these efforts is the Cluster Note.

・New Testament of Pastalie
It's said that it is the only Note created during the Third Era, and thus it's the newest kind of Hymmnos language. It's said to have very inhuman words, to the point that its grammatical structure even exceeds the humans' capacity for understanding it. It was developed as... result of research on how to display the greatest efficiency in the shortest time, which is why the language has a more programming language-like style to it.

▼ヒュムノスの文法誤差
まず、体系化される前の「律史前月読」には、文法と呼ばれるほどのものがありません。それ以降のモノに関しても、微妙に文法が違ったりしています。もっとも顕著なのが、前に講座でやりました「主語定義」です。
主語定義が文法化されているのは、実は中央正純律をベースとしているときだけです。その他の律を使うときは、必ずしも主語定義が無くても構いません。ただ、他人が訳すときに非常に困難な状況になります。中央正純律は、他人や聴き手が明確に意味を把握できる事も、体系化の目的の1つとしていましたから、こうした補助的な文法も色々作られているのです。また、新約パスタリエなど、文法の体系自体が違う律もあります。

▼Measurement Errors in the Hymmnos Grammar
For starters, "Carmena Foreluna", which existed before the systematization of the language, doesn't really have what we would call grammar rules. As for everything that came after it, the grammar had slight differences. The most remarkable of them would be the "Subject Definer", which I explained in one of the previous lectures.
The inclusion of the Subject Definer in the grammar is actually very recent: from the time in which the language became based on the Central Standard Note, as it wasn't really necessary and didn't really matter if the Subject Definer was used when the other Notes were more prevalent. However, they noticed this would it make much harder for others when they tried translating these sentences. Therefore, since one of the goals of the systematization carried out with the creation of the Central Standard Note was making sure that the other people and listeners clearly understood the meaning of the sentences, they added several auxiliary grammar mechanisms. On the other hand, there are also Notes like the New Testament of Pastalie, which use a completely different grammar system.

Editor's Postscript

最近は色々とバタバタとしていて、色々と悪巧み(!)をする時間も少なくなってきています。要するに、おもしろ可笑しい新しい企画を出したいのですが、なかなかその時間がない、という感じです。トウコウスフィアでも、何か「こんなコーナーが欲しい!」というのがあれば、是非そのネタを投稿してください。面白そうなモノはすぐにレギュラーコーナーになってしまうかもしれません。 それでは、また次回~!(土屋)

Lately, there has been all sorts of commotion, so I didn't have much time to plot all sorts of evil schemes(!). In short, while I want to embark into all sorts of new and funny projects, I pretty much don't have any time to do so. This even applies to the Toukousphere, so if you have any ideas such as "I want a corner like this!", please make sure to send it. If it's interesting enough, it might even end up becoming a regular corner. Well then, see you all next Toukousphere~! (Tsuchiya)
