    I brought up recently on the Glosa list that this 'gene ge-X'
construction does not seem to accord with the usages of Ron Clark and
Wendy Ashby (the "authors" of Glosa), who seem to use 'es ge-X' more in
the way of some west European languages.  To me there is an unresolved
question as to what extent Clark&Ashby dictate Glosa usage.  (They do
not participate in electronic fora.)
