The "aspect" in a rikchik word is the tentacle in the lower left. It specifies which of up to seven meanings the morpheme represents.
The seven aspects in standard rikchik, and their example meanings for "Home" and "Fight", are as follows:
Inanimate ("T", for "thing"): a nonmoving, physical thing. This includes plants and dead creatures, but not flowing water or celestial bodies; see next aspect.
Home-T: a home or house
Fight-T: a weapon
Animate ("R", for "rikchik"): a physical thing that moves under its own power. This includes unexpected "creatures" like rivers and the sun, as well as functioning self-driven vehicles. (The earlier repulsion-carts, which were pushed or punted like gondolas, are inanimate, but modern repulsion-drive carriages are animate unless they are broken.) Can also mean a collection of living things, or a living organ.
Home-R: a family
Fight-R: a living weapon (used poetically or metaphorically)
Place ("P"): a location, either physically or figuratively. A time, like "morning", can be a place. Whether a physical object is inanimate or a place is often a matter of emphasis: Home-T is a building that you could put your tentacle on, Home-P is a place to be with your family and relatives.
Home-P: a house (as a place)
Fight-P: a battleground
Idea ("I"): an abstract concept. In practice, often a catch-all for any meaning that doesn't fit elsewhere. Ideas include stories, events, and units of measurement.
Home-I: (no clear meaning)
Fight-I: a battle
Verb ("V"): an action or other verb-like concept. Rikchik has no copula ("is"); relations are used instead ("a happy rikchik" instead of "the rikchik is happy", "I-including a human" instead of "I am a human"). This means that verbs are not required in a sentence, and that many English verbs are not verbs in rikchik. Also, there is no need to alter verbs to get them to fit elsewhere in the sentence, as "eat" can be used as a subject, so there is no equivalent to gerunds like "eating".
Home-V: marry, make a family
Modifier ("M"): a description or other modifying word. As above, aspects specify meaning, not true "part of speech", so there's no difference between "happy", "happiness", and "to be happy".
Name ("N"): this aspect indicates that the meaning of the attached morpheme is not directly important. It's used in compound words and in names.
Home-N-Quality-0 Rikchik-R-End-1: a rikchik named "home".
Fight-N-Task-0 Home-P-End-1: a military base.
Each word's paradigm provides a default reading for one or more aspects.
