This major philosophical-denominational work, which consists of 290 sections, lays the firm foundation for the four pillars of the neutral-inclusive Norm: the norm of neutrality, the principle of relevance or the norm of inclusivity, the principle of truth and the right to personhood. These four pillars correspond with the five TRINP values: TRuth, Relevance, INclusiveness, Neutrality and Personhood.

The Model of Neutral-Inclusivity has been published and continues to be published in two forms:

  • the (printed) paper Model, a work of 936 pages in This Language, published in the year 41 after the Second World War. The printed paper Model superseded the typescript, which, in turn, superseded the original manuscript. (Both the first n and the first i in neutral-inclusivity are capitalized when Neutral-Inclusivity is part of a title or name.)
  • the digital Model, published on the World Wide Web from the year 50 onwards, as part of InSite, two years later renamed TRINPsite. The digital Model supersedes the paper Model. Together with the latest versions of the preface, epilogue, figures and table of contents, the texts in the latest versions of the section files make up the latest version of the whole Model. (At the beginning of 68 aSWW one section of text and twelve figures were not yet available on screen.)

The bibliographical data of the printed paper Model are:

MODEL -- Model of Neutral-Inclusivity
by Vinsent Nandi,
41 years after the Second World War
ISBN 90-9001353-9, 2734K (936p)
With 5-page Table of Contents.

The traditional subject headings in the paper Model were (in alphabetical order):

1.   denomination(al(ism))
2.   discrimination
3.   equality
4.   (moral) right(s)
5.   neutralism/-ity
6.   (normative) philosophy
7.   ontology
8.   paradigm(s)
9.   relevance/-cy
10. truth

For a contemporary classification of the digital Model on the Internet see The Model in Web Directories.

The Model of Neutral-Inclusivity consists of the following three books:

  1. the Book of Instruments
    with, for instance, Truth Among Others
    (This book is also available in three plain text files.)


  2. the Book of Fundamentals
    with, for instance, The Question of Denominational Primacy
    (This book is also available in two plain text files.)


  3. the Book of Symbols
    with, for instance, A Quaternary Metric Calendar
    (This book is also available in one plain text file.)

In addition to these constituent books, the Model contains a List of Prose Poems, a List of Figures, and Prefatory Notes at the beginning, an Epilogue at the end and a Table of Contents. These general documents are also available in one plain text file (without hypertext links!). Its name is MNI/Model.txt, its size 29 kB. Like the six plain text files of the books, it may not be up to date, however, and does not form part of the digital Model.

From the Preface:

The work on these books was not supported by any governmental or private agency, institute or organization, neither was the author while writing them. It is precisely because no support by any organization, group or person with national, military, party-political, class-linked, commercial, proprietary, traditional or other interests was, or had to be, solicited that this work has been made possible. Being written in an interparadigmatic period of denominationalism it is addressed to the world, or to the learned world, at large; being inclusivistic it is not addressed to any country, or region of the world, in particular.


[The printed Model]



The special TRINPsite document for sound files shows a whole list of audiofiles in which Model texts are being read aloud, all of them in This Language, one text in Deze Taal as well. In addition to these plain texts, TRINPsite offers you the opportunity to listen to a number of prose poems and songs from the Model. The List of Prose Poems shows by means of speaker ikons which ones have been recorded and made accessible for the general public. In the case of To Ananda, a poem of millenniums only the first and the last stanzas have been recorded: the first stanza both in This Language and in 这种语言 or 'Zhezhong Yuyan', both as poem and as song (entitled "Ananda/阿戁达"); the last stanza only as (part of a) poem in This Language. Even tho all these sound files are digital files, they are not text files and do not form part of the digital Model.

The Model of Neutral-Inclusivity was written as a book, or series of books, to be read from beginning to end, so that any neologism or new meaning for an old word would either be explained in the section concerned itself or else have already been explained before -- something that, of course, applies equally to its ideas and theories. However, since the advent of the hypertext system on the Internet and elsewhere, it will often happen that surfers, browsers or readers will get to see or read a section without having read, let alone studied, any or all the preceding sections of the same book or of one of the other books of the Model. In such a case these visitors will come across new words or meanings (and new ideas or theories) they are not (yet) familiar with. Moreover, which word or meaning is new will depend on the individual visitor. Therefore, a document has been added here to the Model branch of the TRINPsite tree of files with a list of special Model terms providing direct links to Model texts which should shed (more) light on the meaning or usage of these terms.

The 290 sections of the Model (inclusive of 5 small divisions which are not further subdivided) encompass 142 in the Book of Instruments, 104 in the Book of Fundamentals, and 44 in the Book of Symbols. Since 58.21.6 all but one of these sections have been electronically accessible thru TRINPsite links. The one section not available online can be found in the paper Model in the division The Use and Nonuse of Linguistic Symbols in the chapter The Choice of Words and Names in the Book of Symbols. Since 59.24.6, thirteen (with one set of two figures belonging together) out of the thirty-seven hand-drawn figures (with two sets of two figures) have been made visible on screen, since 67.52.7 twelve more (again, with one set of two figures). At the moment the total Model, with the last section and twelve figures not yet published here, is still available in print.

One way to read, view or download the texts and figures of the digital Model of Neutral-Inclusivity is to go to the Table of Contents and to follow the hypertext links from book to chapter to division to section. As every section of the Model has a link to the next section or text, it is also quite possible, recommendable and commendable, to start with the first section and proceed from there. Should you be more familiar with Zhezhong Yuyan than with This Language, there is a special page entitled "翻译术语的说明" (Fanyi Shuyu de Shuoming) with a list of Model and TRINP terms in translation, that is, from This Language into Zhezhong Yuyan. For those more familiar with Deze Taal there are two lists with the translation of Model terms in both directions. These lists can be found on the page entitled "Vertaalaanwijzingen".

This document is the main document for the M[odel of]N[eutral-]I[nclusivity] branch of the TRINPsite tree of files. After you have read it you may find it more convenient to access the major pages linked to via the special MNI index page.
