1000 most frequent Glosa words

from “Central Glosa” (Ashby, Clark), pp. 24—56.

p. 24:

Glosa 1000

Now you come to the most important part, the heart, Central GLOSA 1000.

Each page is divided into three columns. The middle column lists the Latin and Greek roots of Glosa in bold capitals and in alphabetical order.

A Glosa word followed by a G. means it is of Greek origin. All the other un-G-d words come from Latin. In Column 1 is an international word which contains the Glosa root showing how you have been using, hearing and reading Latin and Greek (GLOSA) for years without perhaps knowing it. Column 3 gives the meaning of the Glosa word.

The reader will surely immediately recognize many of the Glosa words without consulting the first column. But in many cases the Glosa root might strike you as strange at first sight, especially since it is spelt phonetically. In this case a glance into column 1 will familiarize the Glosa root.

For example you might wonder how ALELO means each other. You turn to column 1 and see parallel broken up into its elements PARA, beside and ALELO each other, so the familiar word parallel simply means beside-each-other.

In this way you have acquired at least 4 bits of knowledge. You’ve discovered 1, Its real meaning … beside-each-other. 2 The G shows it is a Greek root and 3 you have learnt 2 Glosa words, without having to strain your memory.

To make things even easier the clue words in column 1 have been separated into their constituent bits by one or 2 hyphens.

So we think after you have browsed a little through this Glosa-English section you will agree that as we always say; GLOSA  IS  THE  INTERNATIONAL  LANGUAGE  YOU  DIDNT  KNOW  YOU KNEW.
