Lo Nurvia Logla
(Visible Loglan = Loglan Text)

Our original composition this time is a story told by Dr. McIvor to the rest of us in Loglan, a memoir of an experience he had while traveling in Greece in 1964.

Ne Dristu Je La Helas La Mistras Lidfuamunce

Na lepo mi turka vi la Inglend, guo, ja na la Nevesofon, mi pa speni ne rezkeo duo lepo tcatraci la Helas, la Inglend, la Iugosla'vias, guo, ice mi pa nu kinci ne kandi fremi. Ibuo lemi fremi pa rulkao lepo fangoi la Inglend, pa mi. Ifa, mi pa canjmi ne gleci stude vi la Korinqas, ice sei haptoi lepo kingoi mi la Inglend. Ibuo, nefi mia ji mi ze sei pa speni sane likta vi la Peloponesos. I, na ne denli, mia pana godzi la Mistras.

Nao, na lepo mia tcagoi Mai, mia pa canjmi to pudjytraci ja fremi lemi kinci ji sei, ice mia ji mia ze pei pa kintraci Mai.
