Notes: * Indicates words specific to this publication not found in the Glosa 6000 or the Glosa Internet Directory, but composed using those vocabularies to create emergency specific terminology.  Readers are cautioned that these terms may have significantly different interpretations in general Glosa use.  The philosophy of this site in translating into Glosa is to use existing Glosa words as phrases to describe the intent and content of terms for which there is no direct translation, rather than to advocate generation of new words.
