datnrzbaselpla
fu'ivla x1 is a makefile designed to produce output files / data / event x2 from rules x3. Doesn't refer only the makefiles for GNU make, but also to any such similar files intended to automate the building process.

If output data is irrelevant, i.e. the makefile runs commands which have no real output, then an event can be used to specify the result of the makefile. See also zbaplrjavni for how to fill the x3.

fertis
cmevla x1 is Virgo [constellation/astrological sign]. From ferti. The Greeks and Romans associated Virgo with their goddess of wheat, Demeter-Ceres who is the mother of Proserpina-Persephone. For this reason the constellation became associated with fertility (in both Babylonia, Greece and Rome). Alternatively, she was sometimes identified as the virgin goddess Iustitia or Astraea, holding the scales of justice in her hand as the constellation Libra. Since ferti in lojban covers both potential and actual/realized fertility, the original meaning of the constellation have been chosen, but you could probably still interpret the name in both senses (as a deity of fecundity or as a fertile virgin).
fi'ikca
fu'ivla x1 takes a fika [social institution]/coffee break together with x2 consuming food/beverage x3. From the swedish word "fika".

In a swedish context x2 might often be friends or fellow workers, and x3 usually is coffee/squash/(tea) together with a cinnamon roll, cookie, cake, a sandwich etc. But fi'ikca could also be used in a more universal, cultural neutral sense. See also coffeehouse/coffee bar (=kafybarja), making coffee (=kafpra).

goilka'i
fu'ivla x1 (text / virtual-text-object) is a variable representing x2 goi is a special case that makes, e.g. zo ko'a, a goilka'i of something.

This allows propositions to be truth-conditional on what a variable represents at that point of time, rather than conditional on the referent itself. See sumka'i, goilgau, goilbi'o, krati.
