yes - I have a program I wrote in visual basic - I write in my version of
glosa grammar using english words modified i.e. the/a/an becomes th or if plural ths and put it all through my version of the dictionary and it comes out in
glosa as below which i was just about to send:-

We could have people working on different approaches to glosa methods and have them used. We could then let natural selection chose and alter them. I suspect that when anyone hears a sentence or group of them, they are
sorted in the brain into structures like general/universal grammars from their own and in my method they are then sorted into a glosa structure. Different
people will think in different ways. Some people are new to Glosa and need its
structureto be very clear others will be able to shorten things. The verb “es”
is an example. I have suggested “ du es” is used for the present tense but as
“es” is very unlikely to be anything but a verb, “es” alone would be quite
ckear. However, this adds one more rule to be learned and the more variants we allow, the more difficult the learning becomes. I shall try to make my method very basic so that some sort of acceptable translation is easily possible. I see no reason to avoid references to grammar as anyone learning another language is likely to be able to cope. Whether we wish to admit it or not we can all work with a granmmar from an early age

the english is a bit stiff/pompous etc so the glosa is too - shall have to
work on my style
