-The above Gellish expression table contains columns that are identified by language independent column IDs (the numbers ​31, 101, 3, etc.). The names of the columns as given on the second row are free text. The use of numeric column IDs makes that the table becomes language independent and enables that the columns may be arranged in any sequence that is convenient for the user. The content of the above table is still language dependent and human readable. ​Its content ​can be made language independent ​by inserting ​columns with unique language independent identifiers (UIDs) for the concepts that are denoted by the above names. Thus by extending the table with columns for such UIDs. The additional columns with object UIDs are illustrated in the following extension of the above table:+The above Gellish expression table contains columns that are identified by language independent column IDs (the numbers ​43, 101, 3, etc.).
