I am not talking about anterior, posterior, etc... I am looking for words specifically relating to movement.
Long description... In the mythos I am working on, mages learn to control objects in three dimensional space. They first learn to summon objects within six different spaces.
- Anterior = Front
- Posterior = Back
- Superior = Upper
- Inferior = Lower
- Dextral = Right hand side
- Sinistral = Left hand side
After learning to summon objects fluently in all six spaces, they learn to "throw" objects in different directions.
For example: a student would consistently summon a stone in the dextral, superior space (to their right side just above their head). An instructor would shout directions and the student would have to "throw" the stone in the correct direction. So, any object moving in an anterior direction according to the perspective of the mage, regardless of where it was summoned, would be moving "forward" or ???. Any object moving in a dextral direction according to the perspective of the mage, regardless of where it was summoned, would be moving "to the right" or ???, etc...
I have accepted that I may just have to use the words right, left, forward, back, up, and down. I just want to see if I'm missing some more specific/scientific terms.
To clarify: this isn't fur the reader's benefit, I am trying to find weird that would cost approximate what the instructors would be using in their teaching. The people that use magic are very scientific, dictionary, vocabulary oriented and using common terms like up, down, left, right would be to, well, common.
