gismu rafsi: del de'o x1 is x2 candela [metric unit] in luminosity (default is 1) by standard x3. See also centi, decti, dekto, femti, gigdo, gocti, gotro, kilto, megdo, mikri, milti, nanvi, petso, picti, terto, xatsi, xecto, xexso, zepti, zetro.
lujvo s1=d1 is soil science [science about earth/soil] based on methodology s3. dertu2, dertu3 and saske2 subsumed. Soil science studies the soil that occupies the pedosphere, one of Earth's spheres.

The two main branches of soil science are pedology (=terderske; the study of soil in its natural setting) and edaphology (the study of soil in relation to soil-dependent uses). See also tedyske, rokske and kunske.

gismu rafsi: gad x1 is an article/descriptor labelling description x2 (text) in language x3 with semantics x4. x2 is the noun phrase/sumti without the article/descriptor; description ((x1 with x2) = gadysu'i); note: 'determiner' has become the accepted general linguistics term, displacing 'article'; however, 'determiner' includes all words that can introduce a noun phrase/sumti, whether a description or not, such as pronoun possessives like lemi, quantifiers (especially in indefinites) like ci and su'o, and demonstratives like ti, ta, and tu; the term 'descriptor' in Lojban, is limited to words that introduce descriptions (excluding indefinites), such as those of selma'o LA and LE, their common compounds such as lemi, and possibly lenu. 'article' typically refers only to a single word; Lojban assumes the broader meaning] See also valsi, cmavo.

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). x3 should specify a reference emission and the associated reference value in magnitudes, the meaning of a change by 1 magnitude, and the direction of increasing brightness (traditionally: toward negative infinity); magnitude is defined for all real numbers. See also: cmagnitude.
gismu rafsi: gum x1 is a mass/team/aggregate/whole, together composed of components x2, considered jointly.
