u(--)p & d(ow)n in English are two words of a highly abstract concept, arising from one’s spatial awareness and linguistic skill, which should reach a certain level of intellectual development before such perceptions could be turned into vocalized expressions. However, the the intrinsic singularity of these two terms –their being one and the same at the outset unnoticed so far– is only revealed through the stamps signs of our Sky*rooT United : Mother Tongue, and better understood in a rather schematic display (shown above), as explained in Doğan Türker’s original method of aphonetic & provisual analysis of root syllables; See tr. am - ap > eng. a map.
