Sti Logi

Fe bovi IN GLOSA CAN MEAN EITHER "HER COW" OR "SHE-COW." ISN'T THIS A WEAKNESS?


Short answer: 99% of the time the context will make the correct meaning clear. If you want 100% accuracy, study Esperanto for about ten times as long as it would take you to learn Glosa.

Long answer:

The real solution here is the one that occurs in natural languages-- if there is a problem, restate the phrase more carefully:

"Her cow":
U bovi; fe habe....
The cow she owns....


"She cow":
U fe-sexu bovi....
The female-gender cow....
