—–Original Message—– From: John Avis <jhnavis@…> To: Date: Sat, 9 Jul 2005 13:02:46 +0100 (BST) Subject: [glosalist] Sound “U” in Glosa

Origin of “mu”

Possibly from Latin “multus = many” ?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Yes, may be I could think only about the animal that gives milk - mu-mu-zoa

u, plu, nu, fu, du, mu, -ru ############# Compare the same error in Esperanto: shi, ghi, chu, chi, chio, -igh-, … Chu shi chiam tiel rughighas pro chio? Kad el sempre redeskas pro omno? (Ido)

I would say so in Eo: Principo de proporcio: uzu diversajn lingvajn rimedojn mli-malpli proporcie kiel en naciaj lingvoj. Ne shoku sen bezono. Grava postulo de interlingvistiko.


Hello Glosa-pe, I missed something in the space (#)

I am getting the idea that using the letter 'U' as the terminal letter  of a particle is A MISTAKE.
It sounds like wierd science to me.  Maybe, if people have bad ears,  and cannot hear the consonant(s) preceding the terminal 'u' they will have  trouble communicating.  Because Glosa has a 'syntax-based' grammar, the  location of the U-terminating particle is fairly indicative of the  particular word in use.  Possibly Eo does have a problem because the  particles are "free-floating" or not necessarily syntax-located.

Not being difficult, just trying to find out where, or why, the ‘false’ mistake is.
