Yes. You can see the symbol on the home page of

The Glosa symbol was created by Ron Clark. The three
(almost) circles represent three Glosa vocabularies: GLOSA 1000,
GLOSA 2000, and GLOSA 6000. At the center of the circle is the
Greek letter PSI, the first letter of the Greek word root-- and
the Glosa word-- PSIKO, meaning "mind" or "soul." And so the two
lines opening on the PSI mean Glosists are to have an open mind.

For me this open mind means especially that Glosists should
be accepting of other reople's language habits and not jump in
with all sorts of criticisms about grammar or rhetoric.

No colors have been selected for the Glosa symbol. The
unique shape is recognizable in any color. Lee Green in his web
site selected blue on orange for his flag of Perilo, a
micronation where Glosa is spoken (see _perilo.net_).

Oh, Bury Me Not


Traditional cowboy song

"Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie,
Where the coyote howls and the wind blows free,
In a narrow grave just six by three--
Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie.

"Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie."
These words came low and mournfully
From the pallid lips of a man who lay
On his dying bed at the end of day.

"Oh, bury me not--" but he ended there.
And we gave no heed to his dying prayer;
In a narrow grave just six by three,
We buried him there on the lone prairie.

"Ne in-tera mi infra alti gra
Ko plu agrio zoa e venti fla
In u simpli, steno tafo-lo.
Ne in-tera mi topo solo-lo.

"Ne in-tera mi topo u-ci land."
Ko silent, an dice u-la demand
Ex palidi labia de andro; qi
Kumbe epi kli kron an morta di.

"Ne in-tera mi--" sed an sto la.
Anti-co an dice sti zer a na:
In u simpli, steno tafo-lo,
Na in-tera an topo solo-lo.

An Unnecessary Book about the Grammar and Style of Glosa


When I try to explain things about Glosa, some people like
to jump on it and say it's some sort of rule. WRONG! As far as
I'm concerned, Glosa has only one rule, the one about U(N)/PLU.
Anything else should be considered an idea that you can take or

Please take anything I say here-- or anything else you know
about Glosa-- and bend it around to make your communication easy
to understand. Understanding comes before grammar-- always!

Every time a rule gets added to Glosa, Glosa is not as easy
a language as it used to be. Let's all try to keep Glosa the
easiest international auxiliary language (IAL). If you have any
ideas to be ADDED to Glosa, perhaps they would be better used to
create a DIFFERENT IAL. If it becomes more used than Glosa, good
for you!
