The demonstratives hin and den must always be followed by a noun or pronoun. They can never stand alone. The pronoun te is attached to the demonstratives: hinte/dente.
Since Globasa doesn't have articles (a/the), the words hin and den may be used to express definiteness when necessary.
The adjectives fem (female) and man (male) may be used as prefixes to distinguish gender. Normally gender is not indicated, but if you need to distinguish gender here are some examples:
femnini means girl
mannini means boy
fembete means daughter
manbete means son
femuma means mare (female horse)
manuma means stallion (male horse)
Globasa has many noun/verbs, words that can function as either noun or verb. The verbs introduced in lessons 2, 3 and 4 are actually noun/verbs.
