Shwe Tu Colony:
A Doll & a doll are different, so thus is Dollmaking & dollmaking. The former creates indistinguishably sapient artificial beings (they have a different process when put under undue stress, but it's too impractical to actually happen), the latter creates just normal dolls. Most dollmakers in the Shwe world nowadays are golemancers overall, which means they're involved in processes of creating artificial, mechanical-based life, so you can expect most dollmakers to know how to fix up a golem as well. Now, a Dollmaker is someone specialized in working with Dolls, & is thus more knowledgeable in the sort of soul programming you'd need to perfect Dolls. In order from least to highest complexity, it'd go dollmakers that make just inanimate lifelike models; golemancers that can imbue such models with a degree of sentience & defined functon; & Dollmakers that create lives that resemble any other.
If one needs to differentiate between dollmaker & Dollmaker such as in a title, Đollmaker is typically used for the latter & Dollmaker plain can thus be used to indicate a dollmaker, & as just seen, italicizing like that would be used for this specific circumstance where one has to explain how titling with Dollmaker versus Đollmaker works, as Dollmaker without italics in any circumstance indicates the advanced sort. A similar rule applies with Đoll & Doll, but again, only for titles. Most linguistic historians pin this blame on Elijah Phee Loew, one of the premier Dollmakers of their world who had brought the concept of a Doll from his father's homeworld with the Five Fragrances Series. When he first created a soul-blending formula for his own Dolls based on the ones his father owned, he continued to call his creations Dolls, & eventually widespread usage caused the word doll to acquire two different meanings dependent sheerly on capitalization, though it is not all too essential anyway. Conversations typically differentiate based on context, & most will be able to differentiate it in the written word as well. Shwe dictionaries, typically being lowercase, have Doll & doll as separate entries, though ones that are all capitalized for whatever reason use the Đoll & Doll distinction.
Some languages do translate a distinction between Doll & doll, such as Demonish, which calls a doll "ci'daruk" & a Doll "ci'daruk-hon," meaning "breathing doll."
For example, if these were all titles for some sort of work:
The Dollmakers' Dolls: A normal dollmaker, normal dolls.
The Dollmakers' Đolls: A normal dollmaker, Dolls.
The Đollmakers' Dolls: An advanced Dollmaker, normal dolls.
The Đollmakers' Đolls: An advanced Dollmaker, Dolls.
The Dollmakers' Dolls: Incorrect formatting (it is clear this is a title, so one does not need to italicize).
Since there's no mention of a title, it'd just be Doll rather than Đoll, but anyway the wood does have some bearing, typically based on the symbolism, historical usage of the wood, or its own characteristics — even well-established placebo or incomplete research can count (I'm mainly referencing sandwalwood's supposed healing scent, albeit with caution since we have a doctor here), though personal anecdote will not. As such, one can find certain cultural specialties within certain Dolls depending on what culture the Dollmaker was raised in, which may in turn affect their perception on their wood. If, for example, a Dollmaker associates oak with death, their Doll is likely to be finished with improved killing capability & a more morbid mind, whereas a Dollmaker in a culture that associates oak with protection will likely create a selfless paladin-like Doll. Skilled Dollmakers like Elijah Phee Loew are thus also somewhat knowledgeable in anthropology, in order to have as many connotations as possible to give to their Dolls.
Aside from wood, other Doll materials include fibers for cloth, multiversal fiber, clay, stone, & metal, but wood is still one of the more popular options since it often has the most moderate stats for a Doll & the subtle effects from the different wood types can often result in a greater specialization for a Doll. Normal fiber is typically reserved for flexible Dolls, multiversal is a forgotten technique for... reasons, clay is usually reserved for Dolls in danger of dying a lot or would like runes inscribed in them, stone is usually for stoic statue-like Dolls intended as decoration, & metal is usually used for combat-intended Dolls that need to take hits.
