So we are beginning to see here that there are two distinct types of composite message. The first is based on a sentence-like approach, and the invariant string can be difficult to translate in some circumstances because of the need for agreement or different word mappings.
In the example above, 'The' should be translated 'el', 'la', or 'las' in Spanish, depending on what word follows it. Also the word 'on' should be translated using three different Spanish words (with different endings).
