Word Derivation 2

So far the Glosa authors have taken a different attitude toward t= he last vowels of words. They have said:

1) Since the last vowel of the wo= rd is simply there to ease pronunciation, it is not important (except for a= few words such as HOMO/HOMI, AMO/AMI). Therefore the words NOKTU, NOKTE, N= OKTO should all be understood as “night” to a Glosist.

2) The vocabulary o= f Interlingua is also useful for use in Glosa. This again shows a lot of fr= eedom in picking the last vowel.

So you see the attitude is actually towar= d allowing a variety of word endings, rather than narrowing the endings to = just one. I don’t think they would care if you used many of the word ending= s you proposed.
