Re: [glosalist] reverse process in verb (sydpidd@...) on August 20, 2006

Cows eat grass head concept of process section (verb phrase) - h1=eat Modifier of h1 [time] -m1 of h1=past/present/future intermittent m1h1=ppf int M2h1[process order]=result + cause [res/cau] cause=cow, result=grass head of indicate section - H2=grass M1h2[number]=one (singular noun) M2h2[process order]= [res/cau]

headof info - h3=cow M1h3[number]=more than one (plural noun) M2h3[process order]= [rescau]

sentence order in glosa is indicate + process + inform phrase order is simple modifiers + head + complex modifiers, the first modifier is either number or time [ these introduce the phrase] so, here we have:- m1h2 + m2h2 +h2 + m1h1 + m2h1 + h1 + m1h3 + m2h3 + h3

indic section m1h2=u, m2h1 here the process order is not indicated h2=gra

process section m1h1= I use “du” as in “do eat” in older english. I do so as “du” is related to “ dura” [continue], other writers translate “du” as “am eating” =
talking about a short time. other writers leave the introductory word altogether and it is sometimes difficult to find where the phrases begin and end and where the head concept is. in glos they seem to use “ca” to express
past/present/future, I suggest we use it too. Usually, a sentence has the order cause + process + result, but here the order is reversed to rescau from caures.glosa indicates this by using the modifier “gene” info section h1=vora

info section process order is rescau so glosa starts this section with the pre-modifier “per” m1h3= more than one -> plu h3=bovi (u) gra du (or “ca”) gene vora per plu bovi
