My gloss system is different from adelgado's (I didn't bother to change it, hope that won't be too much trouble), so here is a list of grammatical gloss terms for your reference.
gen - genitive case
def - definite article
abs - absolute case
erg - ergative case
link - linking adjective suffix or prefix. If you go to the first posts of this thread, Mayatec's grammar was reposted somewhere around there. In that, you can find an explanation of this grammar.
-n- - the epenthetical n.
1p, 1pp - first person singular, plural
2p, 2pp - second person singular, plural
3p, 3pp - third person singular, plural
present - present tense
past - past tense
future - future tense
imperfect - imperfect mood, indicates that action isn't finished and is still in progress.
loc/ade - locative (adessive) case
loc/ela - locative (elative) case
loc/ill - locative (illative) case
mov/per - movement (pertative) case
marg/instr - instrumental case
[on-ia] - onomatopeoia
That's a lot of cases. I found it easier to express the prepositions in cases... I promise I won't do that again
