Dear Ricky, I would say that a solution like LFN’s is well possible in Glos= a: ‘U mi desira es forti,’ ‘My desire is strong,’=C2=A0since the Glosa arti= cle u(n) has usually the function of ambiguity solver.

=C2=A0 I have recently come acros= s this language and have started studying it. So far, I really like it. But= I have a question. If I say or write ‘Mi desira es forti’ does this mean ‘= I desire to be strong’ or ‘My desire is strong’? If it can mean either, yo= u need a way to determine which it means.

LFN, like Glosa, does not use w= ord endings to determine part of speech and ‘me’ and ‘my’ are identical. Wh= en the meaning is ambiguous they solve the problem by putting la ‘the’ in f= ront of me, ‘La me desira es forte.’ Which means ‘my desire is strong’ whil= e ‘Me desira es forte’ would mean ‘I desire to be strong.’ I don’t really = like this solution but it is a solution. Does Glosa have a way to deal with= this?
