places a new window on top of the currently active document window, hiding it

The Expand Modifiers command uses the modifier level information
in a fully-annotated document to convert a document into a graphical structure
to display the hierarchy of modifying clauses in a sentence.
Words that form a distinct phrase or clause are shown on separate lines beginning in a column which indicates the modifying depth or level. Higher level clauses (toward the right) modify the phrase in the next lower level (to the left). Periods and paragraph marks are always on Level 0.
This function is particularly helpful in analyzing Japanese text which uses many levels of modifying clauses, and is particularly hard for speakers of languages that use fewer levels to otherwise understand.
Phrases are encoded by a hard line break. Levels are encoded as a variable number of initial tabs on a line. To change a level, add or delete initial tabs. To split one phrase into two, position the insertion point, press Enter, then press Tab or BackSpace as necessary. To join two phrases into one, press End then Delete as required to delete the line break and initial tabs.
To condense the text back into paragraph format, select the Learn
The Contract Modifiers command reverses the
command, formatting a graphical levels diagram into a normal paragraph.

or another machine translation tool.
The Extract Glosses command extracts

clipboard, ready for pasting.
Speak Selected invokes the optional accessory Text to Speech
Interface which synthesizes speech from a selection, then plays the speech.
