Glosa Synonym Selection (obsolete page)
I worked on development of the Glosa dictionaries from 1997
through 2000 but no longer maintain them. I've kept my stuff here
for historical and reference purposes. The latest and greatest
dictionaries, currently maintained by Marcel Springer, can be found
See my Glosa Page
for Glosa info and links.

Update, 30 March 1998 - We've completed this phase of the dictionary
analysis! The preferred Glosa synonym for any English word in the Literary
Dictionary is now the first one in the list, and this is the only definition
given in the Basic Dictionary. Please let me know if you have a reason for
The old explanation follows...
This is the list of Glosa synonyms for which a preferred word has not yet
been chosen. Please read the criteria
things to keep in mind while making your choices. Also think about the English
words - are the Glosa words really synonyms, or is the English word itself
a homonym which caused my program to throw all those Glosa words together?
For example, I came across the definition fair = FERIA; JUSTI
the dictionary I found just = JUSTI
. Because English fair
a homonym, the Glosa words were unfairly (!) thrown together. I resolved
this by defining FERIA
as fair (bazaar)
, and JUSTI
and fair (equitable)
. Send me your ideas!
