lujvo x1 overestimates the value satisfying x2 (ka/ni) by amount x3, overestimated with likelihood x4; x2 (property) is satisfied by a number lesser by amount x3 than that expected by x1 with likelihood x4 See also kanpe, meckanpe, dunkanpe, fickanpe.
lujvo x1 "hacks" into (accesses using an emergent exploit) x2 for purpose x3 See zviki, jonse. Neutral in connotation; "hats" are described by vudzvijonse, pacyzvijonse, and norvudzvijonse, "unlawfully access" is zerjonse.
lujvo c1=s1 (quoted word(s)) is a name of c2 used by c3 that morphologically [loose] evokes/is similar to/is a brivla bv1=s2 (text; may be multiple words), similar in property/quality[/amount?] s3 (ka/ni), in language x6 s3 will likely just be morphological structure. Strict brivlacme are a subclass of brivlasmicme. The name must "look like" a (sequence of) brivla (according to rules for language x6), but need not exactly follow the morphological requirements thereof (in particular, c1 may end with a consonant in Lojban). See also: brivlacme (a specialization); jvosmicme (a different specialization that is analogous but restricted to Lojbanic lujvo). Language is specified to be x6 rather than bv_n because the definition for brivla has not yet gained consensus and this particular terbri is dependent thereupon.
gismu rafsi: caj x1 exchanges/trades/barters commodity x2 for x3 with x4; x1, x4 is a trader/merchant/businessman. Also (adjective:) x1, x2, x4 is/are commercial (better expressed as ka canja, kamcanja). x2/x3 may be a specific object, a commodity (mass), an event (possibly service), or a property; pedantically, for objects/commodities, this is sumti-raising from ownership of the object/commodity (= posycanja for unambiguous semantics); (cf. dunda, friti, vecnu, zarci, jdini, pleji, jdima, jerna, kargu; see note at jdima on cost/price/value distinction, banxa, cirko, dunda, janta, kargu, prali, sfasa, zivle)
experimental gismu x1 is meta to/an example of x2 that describes such an object/concept/notion/system/topic/etc., being meta in property/aspect x3, and which has features x4, governed by/considered in system/considerations/epistemology/theory x5; x1 is meta (a particular type of abstraction of x2 so as to apply to itself in some sense); x1 is an/a piece of/an example of x2 that applies fractally thereto Does not (necessarily) mean "beyond", "after", "beside"; in some (rather pictoral) senses, these meanings may be necessary but not sufficient for being meta in this sense; thus, "metaphysics" should not be translated using this word. x1 is an object, notion, topic, system, etc. which applies to x2 but which is itself an example thereof; for example, the meanings of the words "metalinguistics" and "metadata" are meta in this sense. It is not necessarily directly self-referential, but could be fractally applicative. x1 is an X that is about (another) X; x1 is an abstraction of X so as to apply to X. x1 does not necessarily abstract [from] (in one sense), but is abstract to, x2. See also: xulta (generalized/weaker), sucta.
experimental gismu x1 is aligned diagonally along/between nonadjacent vertices x2 as in polytope x3; x1 is a diagonal line segment/linear manifold of lower dimension as viewed in frame of reference x3; x1 is crooked (one sense), skew (one sense, see notes), off-kilter (one sense), away from center/off-center, non-orthogonal/not perpendicular nor parallel, at an angle, perhaps non-vertical and non-horizontal, diagonal to x2 in figure/coordinate system x3. Not for use in: entries of tensors/matrices (confer: daigno), certain geometric meanings (such as with Cartesian products), etc. Only for purely 'visual' geometric objects/figures/frames. The polytope in question need not actually be 'drawn'; an oriented frame of reference naturally 'projects' a polytopic sense onto all objects. x1 can be any linear manifold of lower dimension than the space in which it is embedded (defined by x3). The skewness is not relative to another linear manifold in some higher-dimensional space (the usual definition of "skew" in geometry) - it is simply a skewness (in a layperson sense) relative to points in a figure or axis in a coordinate system. Proposed by Gleki.
lujvo function f1 is discontinuous/abrupt/sharply changes locally (in output) on/at s2 (set), with abruptness of type x3 (default: 1) s2 should be a set within some open subset of definition of f1, or a set on which f1 is not defined at all. For x3, an argument of n (number) corresponds to a differentiability class of order n to which f1 does NOT belong at points in set s2; notice that such an n makes no implications about the truth value of f1 belonging to any given differentiability classes of order m < n, but f1 cannot belong to differentiability classes of order m > n; n = 0 implies that the function is not continuous on that set (lack of definition there is sufficient for such a claim); a function that is discontinuous or which has a cusp or sharp "corner" in its graph/plot (meaning that its derivative is discontinuous) at points in s2 will have n ≤ 1. For now at least, n can be a nonnegative integer; generalizations may eventually be defined. This lujvo is not perfectly algorithmic/predictable.
gismu rafsi: gas ga'e x1 [observer] senses/detects/notices stimulus x2 (object/nu) by means x3 under conditions x4. x1 is sensitive to x2; also feels, spots, perceives, makes out, discerns/recognizes (but only implying reaction without necessarily any significant mental processing); note that the emphasis is on a property which stimulates x1 and is detected (sanji is passive about the sensing, and is not limited to sensory input, as well as presuming some kind of discernment/recognition, while not being concerned with the means of detection); x3 sense/sensory channel. See also pencu, sanji, viska, sumne, tirna, zgana, canci, simlu.
gismu rafsi: ven ve'u x1 [seller] sells/vends x2 [goods/service/commodity] to buyer x3 for amount/cost/expense x4. x1 is a salesperson/salesman/vendor; x3 buys x2 from x1 (= terve'u for reordered terms); x4 is the price of x2 to x3 (= velve'u for reordered terms); for sale (= fitselve'u, selvenfriti); x2 may be a specific object, a commodity (mass), an event, or a property; pedantically, for objects/commodities, this is sumti-raising from ownership of the object/commodity (= posyve'u, posyselve'u for unambiguous semantics). (cf. canja, dunda, janta, pleji, jerna, kargu, prali, zarci, vamji, jdima; see note at jdima on cost/price/value distinction, fepni, friti, jerna, rupnu)
experimental gismu x1 is clockwise/right-turn-direction of[/to] x2 along/following track x3 [path] in frame of reference x4 (where the axis is within the region defined by the track as the boundary, as viewed from and defined by view(er) x4; see notes); x1 is locally to the right of x2, according to x4, constrained along x3; x1 is along a right turn from x2 along path x3, as viewed in frame x4. Angular/curling direction: clockwise. he orientation of the path determines x4 but does not factor into consideration for x3. Further glosses: clockwise, locally rightward, right-turning (with no bulk translation) in a way that would be characterized as "negative" by the right-hand rule (aligned with and in the direction of a basis vector, at least for a given component). x1 is left-handedly/clockwise(ly) oriented relative to x2 on/along x3 in frame of reference x4. x1 is left-handed (one sense) from x2 [more accurately: moving from x2 to x1 requires a(n imaginary) motion that is left-handed about/along x3 as seen in frame/orientation/perspective x4]. x1 is to the path-following right of x2 (where the path is connected; as such, x1 is also be to the path-following left of x2, although there is an implication that the former is the smaller (or equal-length) path). See also: zucna, du'ei (left-handed vectorial cross product), du'oi (modal). Proposed short rafsi: -tso-.
fu'ivla x1 is a bus/coach for carrying passengers x2, propelled by x3 See also sorprekarce, sorpeka, trene, taksi. For denoting passengers, engine, towns and cities etc. used in combination with karce, carce, marce, tcadu.
fu'ivla x1 (agent) consigns (by thought, word, or deed) x2 (patient) to fate x3 (abstraction) So-called "neutral-dapma"; zandapma would be the connotationally positive form, while dapma would be the connotationally negative form. See pacna, dimna, a'o, di'ai
fu'ivla x1 is a celestial body, heavenly body lo plini describes planets (lo planeta), dwarf planets (lo jdikyplini), asteroids (lo cmaplini). See also kensa, tarci, solri.
experimental cmavo mekso string operator (ternary): find-and-replace; in string/text/word/sequence X1 formally replace X2 (ordered tuple of terms to be replaced) with X3 (ordered tuple of terms to be respectively substituted) X2 and X3 are ordered tuples of substrings/letters/characters/letterals/digits/numerals. The ith term in tuple X2 is replaced with the ith term in tuple X3; the replacements are executed simultaneously (thus, no overlap/contradiction can be allowed to arise in the substitution- in particular, in X2) - alternatively, if there is overlap/conflict in/between the terms of X2, the replacements are performed in order of presentation (the ith term in X2 is replaced by the ith term in X3, and then the (i+1)th term in X2 is replaced with the (i+1)th term in X3, starting with the 1st term in each). X2 and X3 must have the same length/number of terms - alternatively, X3 cannot be longer/have more terms than X2; in this situation, the ith term of X2 is replaced with the ith term of X3 until and including when the last term of X3 is reached, after which point the remaining terms in X2 are not replaced at all. Use a permutation acting on X2 as the argument for X3 in order to rearrange the substrings of X1; if the alphabet is ordered, then operators can be applied to the letters in order to rotate through the alphabet. In particular, if X1 is a binary string (a word over an alphabet of two letters) and X2 is the 2-tuple of the letters of that binary alphabet (length-1 substrings), then without specification of X3, this operator defaults to bitwise binary negation (bit conjugation) wherein each letter in X1 is replaced by the unique other letter in the binary alphabet (otherwise, the replacement would be the identity/trivial replacement or just a formal substitution letter-by-letter which does not really change the nature of the word). X1 and each entry in X2 and X3 should be quoted, match a necessary type (such as being a character), or be abstracted a level by symbolics. In general, the replacement is formal and the strings in X3 need not be over the same alphabet as the one over which X1 is written. This operator is useful for combinatorial lines and for expanding digits (such as, in a binary string, replacing each occurrence of "0" with "01" and each occurrence of "1" with "10"; note that the replacement is instantaneous and simultaneous for all terms of X2 and every occurrence of such terms in X1, thus this substitution is perfectly acceptable).
gismu rafsi: bac x1 exceeds/is beyond limit/boundary x2 from x3 in property/amount x4 (ka/ni). On the other side of a bound, but not necessarily directly 'across' nor at the shortest plausible distance (per ragve); also not limited to position in space. See also dukse, ragve, zmadu, kuspe.
gismu rafsi: ban bau x1 is a/the language/dialect used by x2 to express/communicate x3 (si'o/du'u, not quote). Also tongue. See also tance, cusku, ve tavla, valsi, gerna, jufra, natmi, slaka.
