brivlacme
lujvo c1 (quoted word(s)) is a name of c2 used by c3 that morphologically [strict] is brivla bv1 in language x5 The name must strictly be a (sequence of) brivla (according to rules for language x5); as such, in Lojban, the word(s) c1 must end with vowels and in fact must exactly follow the morphology of brivla. See also: brivlasmicme (a specialization); jvocme (a different specialization that is analogous but restricted to Lojbanic lujvo). Language is specified to be x5 rather than bv_n because the definition for brivla has not yet gained consensus and this particular terbri is dependent thereupon.

experimental gismu x1 (abstraction) should/(of right) ought to be true/happening under conditions/in the case of x2 being true/happening, as believed by/by standard/under consideration of x3. If the world were proper/correct/just/ruled perfectly and strictly according to x3 and if x2 were true, then x1 would be true as well. Moral judgment goes in x3. x3 can also be assumed by expectation under hypothesized laws of physics, by the true situation of the world, etc. Synonymous with zgadi.
cirko
gismu rafsi: cri x1 loses person/thing x2 at/near x3; x1 loses property/feature x2 in conditions/situation x3. x2 may be a specific object, a commodity (mass), an event (rare for cirko), or a property; pedantically, for objects/commodities, this is sumti-raising from ownership of the object/commodity (= po'ecri, posyselcri for unambiguous semantics). See also facki, ralte, sisku, claxu, jinga, pleji, canja, sfasa, dapma, binra, mipri.

cmagnitude
fu'ivla x1 is emitted/reflected light that measures to be x2 magnitudes in luminous brightness, on scale (si'o)/using reference value/under system/according to definition x3, in logarithmic base x4 (default: decimal (10)) Wavelength is specified in x1; it is improper to submit an object as the sumti for x1. The type of magnitude (absolute, apparent, etc.) must be specified by tanru or lujvo. x2 must be a pure number (dimensionless). The system/scale being used (x3) must specify the reference emission and its reference value/magnitude (for example: the brightness of Vega measures to be 0 magnitudes in all wavelengths), the unit (the meaning of a change by 1 magnitude), and the direction of increasing brightness (traditionally: lesser magnitudes represent increased brightness); note that magnitude is defined for all real numbers. See also: gu'irnilcarmrmagnitu.
cmene
gismu rafsi: cme me'e x1 (quoted word(s)) is a/the name/title/tag of x2 to/used-by namer/name-user x3 (person). Also: x2 is called x1 by x3 (= selcme for reordered places).
