Karo Sid e plu H.hetero Glosalist-pe,

At 02:51 PM 6/4/03 EDT, Sid grafo:

hurei!! glosalist in glosa! the more glosa there is to read and the more often we read it, the more we shall be able to think in it.

  • Mi lekto tu mesage, e dona akorda. Kron mi habe u tem pro id, mi, pluso, prefere grafo uti England-lingua - seqe u Glosa.
    Anti-co, u-ci akti dona nuli a plu persona; qi habe flue ko ni Glosa ni England-lingua. U-ci problem kontinu: id solutio proabili nece u produce de u GID diktionari - alo id eqa - intra plu vario natio lingua. Obvio, u-ci dona explika pro mi vo produce u 2500-verbi diktionari pro plu gene-sko-pe. Seqe gene u gru verbi-lista; a qi na holo pote don akorda, u-la tem, plu-pe pote traduce id in mu plu proprio natio lingua.

[I read your message, and agree. When I have the time for it, I also prefer to write in English - after the Glosa. However, this action does nothing for people, who have fluency with neither Glosa nor English. This problem continues: its solution probably needs the production of the GID dictionary, or its equivalent, in the various national languages. Obviously, this explains my wish to produce a 2500-word dictionary for learners. After getting a suitable word-list, to which we can all agree, then people can translate it into their own national languages.]

returning from 3 weeks of wild, wet, windy weather in the western wilderness of scotland, my first e-mail was from “drought-breaker”!

  • U thema de hidro flu dia tu libe-tem e mi raisona pro proto u Reti-lo. Ci, na, a-nu, habe mega tro pusi hidro. Sed, pro u kresce de plu fito e animali, Skot-landa habe sufici. Plus, Skot-landa habe forti aqa venti; ci, in Australia, na habe plu tempesti de pulvina ma de plu-la de hidra.

[The theme of water flows through your holiday and my reason for starting a website. Here, we still have much too little water. But, for the growth of plants and animals, Scotland has enough. Also, Scotland has strong wet wind; here, in Australia, we have storms of dust more than those of water.]

sometimes find G reading hard to understand and writing hard to do - partly because of memory etc problems (O2) but partly because of some very curious syntaxes in G itself. so this is in english.

  • Place, dona plu exempla. Dona cita de plu caso de sintaxi; ko qi tu habe dificili. Ko moderni puta de u lingua, na sio posi dice ke plu ge-cita grafo no-korekti uti Glosa. Alterno, na nece simplifi un uti de Glosa si posi, alo dona explika de id uti, si u-ci sembla no-usuali.

[Please, give examples. Quote the cases of syntax, with which you have difficulty. With modern thinking about the language, we might say that the quoted writing incorrectly uses Glosa. Alternatively, we need to simplify the use of Glosa if possible, or explain its use, if this seems unusual.]

shall contribute a story about Roberti ……..

  • Na atende tu histori de Robert.

[We wait for your story of Robert.]
