HOW DO YOU TELL A NOUN FROM A VERB IN GLOSA?


Short answer: You get used to it-- honestly!

Long answer:

Every language in the world uses sentences that contain one or more of the three elements SUBJECT, VERB, or OBJECT. Although the components may not be in that order, every language uses all three. Why?

The human brain seems to be programed to recognize these components. Linguists call this "the Black Box Theory." We can't see how the brain does this, but the results are undeniable.

I believe this is how Glosa works. How do you tell a noun from a verb in Glosa? USE IT! In time your brain will naturally figure it out. Why use the time to memorize lists of declensions and conjugations instead?

Frequent use of U(N)/PLU helps to show nouns in Glosa. The next three questions deal with this.
