IS GLOSA PUNCTUATION DIFFERENT THAN ENGLISH PUNCTUATION?
Short answer: The semicolon (;) should be used to introduce subordinate clauses.
Subordinate clauses are sentences that are joined to other sentences and further describe one element of the main sentence. Some examples:
It was Scotty. + He operated the transporter. =
It was Scotty, who operated the transporter.
(The phrase after the comma describes Scotty.)
Pa es Skoti; qi pa akti u trans-me.
The president said it. + The society is out of money. =
The president said (that) the society was out of money.
Un ante-sedi-pe pa dice; panto valuta de plu socia pa gene spende.
The lady will marry a man. + She saw him on a ship. =
The lady will marry the man (whom) she saw on a ship.
U gina fu game ad un andro; (qi) fe pa vide in navi.
So what do you do when you really need a semicolon? Most Glosists still use a semicolon. I prefer to start a new sentence instead, although sometimes a double dash (—) conveys the meaning better.
