Hi Xavi, From what I’ve seen, the words marked with an “X” are all va= riants of words that are allowed (at least in mega Glosa). As I understand= it, some variants of essentially the same word were included in some Glosa= lists, and other variants of the same word were included in other Glosa li= sts. When the various lists were combined into a single dictionary (viz. t= he GID), obviously one variant had to be selected as the official version o= f the word and the others had to be deprecated. I think you would agree th= at having more than one variant of the same word for many words in a langua= ge that is proposed as an international auxiliary language defeats the purp= ose of having an international auxiliary language. Another point tha= t should be made, I think, is that there shouldn’t be anything sacrosanct a= bout the first version of an artificial language. In fact, I think the opp= osite is true. Artificial languages get tested in practice, just like soft= ware and any other engineering aritifact. The parts that work well are ret= ained. The parts that don’t work well or don’t work at all should be rejec= ted or modified. As Jespersen pointed out, in the end an international aux= iliary language rests solely on science and reason. -Ian To: glosalist@yah= From: xabadiar@… Date: Wed, 5 Oct 2011 15:29:18 +0000 = Subject: [glosalist] Re: Glosa 1000


  Ave, karo Myalee,

It seems obvious to me that no-one shoul= d change the original Glosa words in favour of substitutes supposedly bette= r. I wonder why they had to substitute “ami” against “amika”, “apis” agains= t “api”, etc. But my dear friend, they actually CAN do it, they have ALREAD= Y done it, by giving an “X” mark to many words that “should be avoided”, ev= en to essential words from any “Glosa-1000 list”. (GID, page 4). In my opin= ion, the GID might be re-organized: the “Glosa Centra” list should be the o= nly place where the X-marked words might be excluded. And the “Glosa Mega” = list should be the integral list with both the original words and the recen= t and preferred words. No need to mark words that “should be avoided”. The = words outside the “Glosa Centra” list would be avoided “de facto”; the word= s inside the “Glosa Centra” would be preferred “de facto”.

Finally, an “= English-Glosa Centra” list is in my opinion far more necessary than an “Eng= lish-Glosa Mega” list.

Saluta, Xavi.
