Here are two sentences of the Luggnaggian language, from "Gulliver's 
Travels" by Jonathan Swift. They are translated for us, but can we 
devise glosses for them?

Ickpling Gloffthrob Squutserumm blhiop Mlashnalt Zwin tlodbalkguffh 
Slhiophad Gurdlubh Asht.

"May your celestial Majesty out-live the Sun, eleven Moons and an half."

Fluft drin Yalerick Dwuldum prastrad mirplush.

"My Tongue is in the Mouth of my Friend." (ie, "I need an interpreter.")
