"only, solely". Pay attention to its position before the verb "to be able to". It would be wrong to write placing it after, directly translating, for example, the English "I can only speak Italian". Instead this sentence is written like (translating literally from MG) "I only can speak italia-language".
The "complement of degree". The sentence, literally: "he/she English speaks DEGREE_MARKER very good". Pay attention to this particular construction, a way to create adverbial sentences in MG (and Chinese): Subject + Object + Verb + DEGREE_MARKER + Adjective.
Another example of the complement of degree, this time with an intransitive verb. When there is no Object, the structure is "Subject + Verb + DEGREE_MARKER + Adhective": "you run DEGREE_MARKER fast" -> "you run quickly". The negative is formed placing the negative particle in front of the adjective: "you run DEGREE_MARKER not fast" -> "you doesn't run quickly".
