Hey JohnKlue!

My name is Elinor, and I thought I'd drop by to give this a quick review. I also don't believe I've reviewed like this on the site, so I appreciate you sharing it. Reading it through it definitely made me interested to find out what you have in store for the story itself. I'm curious if Brave New World was an inspiration for you at all, because I definitely picked up on shades of that while reading through this.

I agree with chikara that this should be in alphabetical order, because it would be cool if this was a document that could be found in the world of your story.

Anyway, I think that's all I have right now. Hope this helps and keep writing!

Elinor

Hey there JohnKlue!

This is really cool! It's not something I'd usually be drawn into because I don't think I've read the source material, and it's not commonly seen on a writing site because stuff like this typically just happens as the story progresses chapters and major plot points. Like I've never reviewed vocabulary on YWS, but it's a common thing for me to do in class (Ph.D. student here!), so I'm looking forward to flexing that skill of mine.

Let's get into the review now~

First things first, I believe putting this into alphabetical order would fit more with the atmosphere. Going along with the theme you've created, I assume this is presented in a manner where it feels like a person working there or a higher-up has written this. I like the idea of that because it plays around with all of the ideas that make my brain work overtime, but there are many ways to make it feel more complete.

Alphabetical order is seen in most vocab lists in environments like this because it's simple, it's understandable by the assumed audience who'd read it, and it's seen a lot in informational or career settings. If you want to go into that extra-professional, kind of dystopia future vibe, I suggest doing things according to what experts or professionals in that branch do because it creates more realism to the subject.

I also see a common theme of it jumping around. If you don't like alphabetical order, you could break it into generally similar ideas. Like with the sad-think and the sedation snork, or the friend and unfriend. The hard part of choosing this is finding out what is considered similar enough to be placed together, and that also goes along with the fact that some of these terms can be seen as miscellaneous or different.

Even then, this is all just my thoughts on the subject. Nice work!

Thank you for the input.
This Vocab list was originally something I created for myself to world build more.
And I decided to try and publish it just to get another perspective on it.
Also I felt I needed to add a little more to The NETWORK mythos.
And your suggestion of breaking them into generally similar ideas is something a want to add in, but I actually added to this list as I thought of things.

Alphabetical order might cause the vocab list to seem artificial, which might actually work better for the in-universe Narrative.
but this is more of my out of universe guide.

thanks for the input bye.
