If you like these kinds of things (which word modifies which), I suggest lo= oking at the particle ‘pi’ of toki pona. Pona#Adjectives

(I don’t think it may help for Pan-glosa, but you my consi= der it fun)

I realize that one of the most important rule of the grammar of Glosa=

might be changed ! In a phrase it might be better than we consider t= hat a word DO NOT modify the followed word. In fact it is, actually, = the reality for many words : tense markers, numbers, quantifiers, determ= inant=85 e.g. this example in Robin Gaskell seminar : =AB ii. Sequenc= e in Phrases a)Noun Phrases Noun - Determinant - Nume= rator - Quantifier - Modifier(s) - ‘noun’ Marker = EG. u plura tri-loba mega alti, rubi flori =BB

= So, I think that, perhaps, it is better to admit, in Pan-glosa, that i= n a group (phrase) a word modifies the last word (i.e the important word= (verb or noun)), except if a mark expressely says that it modifies the = word which follow it. I imagine the word ZI, which can be marked by lett= ers (Zi) or by a special punctuation (~). If it is a punctuation, it is = not already necessery to say it if the mode of speaking is clear.

e= .g. u plura tri-loba mega ~ alti rubi flori e.g. u plura tri-loba mega = zi alti rubi flori

U, PLURA, TRI-LOBA, ALTI, RUBI, modify FLORI, b= ut MEGA modifies ALTI.

I am not sure if X ~ Y can have a different mea= ning as X-Y.
