Word Techniques (語術, Gojutsu) are unique techniques Kogomei in battle, through use of her Kasei no Hon, and Kasei no Fude. Her techniques are often compared to Shodōjutsu, but are a slightly different variation of it, as she can give her creations life itself, through use of Yang Release chakra using her Paintbrush of Change.
By her understanding of Kotodama, she knows that power lies in the use of words. Applying this principle to her technqiues, she is able to use words to empower them, as well and change things, all at the simple writing of a phrase. Without understanding of a technique though, she is unable to change the properties of a desired object or person. She does this though the modification of an object or individuals Kotodama, via seeing, hearing, or interacting with a said object or individual.
After years of training with her Paintbrush of Change and Book of Change, their techniques become second nature to her, being able to cast techniques via thinking them, while simply devoting a little more chakra than normal to the technique at hand.
Its also known that certain words can't be used as a Gojutsu, such as "Invincible" and "Immortality", among many others, as words suchs as these just won't take effect. The reason behind this is unknown, but its assumed that its in place to keep someone from becoming like a deity.
