Hi, Gary. Saluta, Gary.

I understand what you wrote about tolerance. Mi lo= gi tu grafo de tolera.

Maybe you could guess that I agree. Posi tu pa pote= divina; Mi akorda.

A long time has passed since I last used Glosa. Mega t= em fu pa ge-linqi po mi ultima kron de Glosa uti.

My mind was exhausted. M= i menta pa ge-spende.

So maybe my speech skill lessens. So posi mi tekno d= e dice wei.

No-klu-co.. Kura.. Anti plu persona, Plu Hipopotamus habe mega= miso! (ridi) Regardless of that, (ne-kognato) Beware.. against people, hip= popotamuses are very hostile! (laughter)

Mega gratia. I = was hoping that someone who also speaks Glosa would acknowledge my speaking= , so I am happy to hear from you about it.

I meant to put a note that= explained that ‘non-schematic’ pronunciation is probably acceptable to Wen= dy and Ron’s plan for the language, since they included examples with somet= hing like british accents. I don’t want to discourage people who haven’t he= ard the language before, if they hear it, and it seems difficult..For the m= oment I’d like to improve my ‘schematic’ pronunciation because it is the ‘b= asi’ on which to compare other accents.

This is exactly the right atti= tude. TOLERANCE. If you understand what was said, the language is success= ful. Don’t say, “But you’re pronunciation isn’t perfect.” -> U-ci es un= exakti korekti este. TOLERA. Si pe logi u ra; ali-pe dice, u lingua habe= sucede. Ne sti dice: “Anti-co tu dice-soni ne es perfekti.”

This i= s from the 18 step guide, in step 12. “An ne pa pote memo plu verba seqe= -co an pa merka u verba-bibli.”

Except for the punctuation, this sente= nce is correct. -> Excepti plu inter-verba sema, u frase habe korekti. =

TOLERANCE. Speakers of Western European languages seem to have a diffe= rent system of reflexive pronouns than do most other languages (including= the original Latin they came from). Therefore I would say simply expect = some differences here. -> TOLERA. Plu dice-pe de plu uest-Europa lingua f= eno habe u difere sistema de plu re-flexi vice-verba, de maxi poli hetero= lingua (klude un origi lingua Latino; ex qi mu pa veni). Kausa-co mi dic= e; pe simpli debi cepti plu difere de u-ci.

I hate talking grammar. = But if you really want to- -> Mi este odio de dice de gramatika. Anti-co,= si tu veri volu dice-

Logically, since SE refers back to the subject = of the sentence, SE can never be the subject of the sentence or even of a= phrase. In the phrase starting with ANTI-CO, AN is the subject, taking t= he verb MERKA and the object U VERBA-BIBLI. It is simply context that mak= es AN the same person in both phrases. It is only logical that a person w= ho needs help remembering words would need a dictionary. When you think = of it, if I say HE, does the word refer to President Obama, Prince Charl= es, or some bum sleeping in the street? How does anyone know exactly what= the word HE is referring to? Since context- that is simple common sense,= not grammar- actually determines who or what a pronoun refers to
