“u ergo-pe” noun phrase subject, easy to see “u” starts the phrase, “du” also could start a verb phrase “the work-person does work well and the-his work does work in the long time” awful english but clear.. “u” only or almost always starts a noun phrase “pa ergo” or “fu ergo” “pa/fu” almost always start verb phrase. sentences in the past or future tense, I find easy to read . Those sentences.I have difficulty with are very often in the present so I suggest we use “du” or “nu” or something else to mark the beginning of a present tense verb phrase. if we could agree on what, two thirds of the glosa that causes me confusion would be put right and about the same fraction of the complaints voiced in glosalist over the past few years also Esperanto solves this problem with “is/as/os” - “estas/estos/estis” syd
