If everybody thinks that Glosa is allways congruent, and if I am the o= nly man on the earth who find contradictions between the general
annoncie= s (no grammar!) and the reality, naturelly I shall go far away with my inca= pacities. Because I cannot understand the structure of some exemples in the=

R.Gaskell’s Seminar1&2 :

e.g. were quickly end excitedly talking loudly = VP pa du celero e excita fo-sono dice

[celero e excita] fo-sono= dice celero e [excita fo-sono] dice ?????

e.g. The boy, who was fat and= badly dressed, arrived. U ju-an; qi pa es paki e mali ge-vesti, pa = ariva. AdjC Why /paki/ and/ge-vesti/ ???? why not /ge-paki/, why not= /mali vesti/ ????

EG An fo hedo bibe. ………………….. hedo ‘v= erb’ ~~~~ ………………………. bibe ‘gerund’ (verb/no= un) [He very-much enjoys to drink/drinking.]

Why /hedo/ is a verb??? wh= y not /bibe/ ??? Why not /an/: possessive >/fo/ and /hedo/ : adjectives > /= bibe/ : noun???? (his very-much enjoyed drink)

AND WHY SOME WORDS ARE ONL= Y VERBS ? (I have read at the beginning that in Glosa, a word is a concept = and may be use as verb, noun, adverb or adjective)

********= **** COMMON ‘VERBS’

In Glosa, some words are used almost exclusively a= s verbs, and these are general-purpose verbs, such as:-

habe - to have,= have has ki - to go, go, goes, went veni - to come, come, comes, c= ame tena - to hold, grab, take


Some words, in Glosa, are “a= lmost verbs” but are not “full verbs” in their own right: they are not ‘sta= nd-alone’ verbs, but they add to the meaning of the “full verb”, which is u= sually the final word in the Verb Phrase. These Verboids are half-way betwe= en Adverbs and Verbs. Examples:-

posi - possibly pote - can, has t= he ability to nece - needs to, must lice - be allowed, allow to d= ebi - ought to hedo - enjoys, happily forti - strongly seqe - = following, subsequently vo(lu) - wish to, would tanto - so much, almos= t tosto - soon “ (

****= *****

For me, if I am not the only stupid man, Glosa need an active aut= hority to perform the language, but who and where are now the deciders?
