mikri
gismu rafsi: mik x1 is a millionth [10^{-6}] of x2 in dimension/aspect x3 (default is units). See also grake, mitre, snidu, stero, delno, molro, kelvo, xampo, gradu, litce, merli, centi, decti, dekto, femti, gigdo, gocti, gotro, kilto, megdo, milti, nanvi, petso, picti, terto, xatsi, xecto, xexso, zepti, zetro
muvdu
gismu rafsi: muv mu'u x1 (object) moves to destination/receiver x2 [away] from origin x3 over path/route x4. Also mobile (= comymu'u, for the non-specific opposite of immobile); after a muvdu, object is alienated from/no longer at origin (unless physically returned there, per litru or slilu); agentive move (= muvgau, muvzu'e), non-agentive transitive move (= muvri'a), self-propelled (= sezmuvgau), motion of a part of the object (= pagmu'u), having a moving part (= muvypau, muvyselpau); apparent motion (= mlumu'u). (cf. rinci, klama (which differs in that the means of motion is explicit), litru, cliva, fatri; dunda, benji for agentive movement that does not necessarily imply alienation from origin, preja for similar movement with no agent implied, bevri, vimcu)
nacyzmarai
lujvo x1 (number) is the greatest element/maximum of the set (of numbers) x2 under (partial) ordering x3 x1 must be a set. If this word is being used as a function (max), common but lazy mathematical practice allows for speaking of "the maximum of a function" (including sequences) or to constrain the maximum with respect to certain variables, but these constraints can and properly ought to be incorporated into the definition of the set of which the maximum is being taken. This word is not limited to purely mathematical usage and the set can be defined loosely (such as in "the maximum number of people whom I permit to be invited" wherein the set x2 is understood to be the set of the possible acceptable numbers of guests allowed by the speaker). The maximum x1 must belong to set x2; compare with: mecraizmana'u (supremum). See also: nacmecrai.
nakcei
lujvo c1 is a god (specifically, male deity) of people(s)/religion c2 with dominion over c3 [sphere]. In English, "god" can be either genderless or male (depending on context and contrast), while specifically indicating a female deity by use of the word "goddess". In order to correct this imbalance, Lojban is equipped with fetcei and nakcei (among other words) for the variously characterized deities, whereas cevni makes no implications about the gender of the deity. Cf. fetcei, nakni, cevni, lijda, krici, censa, malsi. Recommended to be used only use when contrasted with fetcei or masculinity of the deity is to be emphasized/important.
nanvi
gismu rafsi: nav x1 is a billionth/thousand-millionth [10^{-9}] of x2 in dimension/aspect x3 (default is units). See also grake, mitre, snidu, stero, delno, molro, kelvo, xampo, gradu, litce, merli, centi, decti, dekto, femti, gigdo, gocti, gotro, kilto, megdo, mikri, milti, petso, picti, terto, xatsi, xecto, xexso, zepti, zetro
nunmu
experimental gismu x1 is a non-binary-gendered humanoid person [not necessarily adult] Umbrella term for any non-man non-woman (in some aspect/consideration/standard) humanoid person; possibly includes: transgenders, people of no gender/sex, people of indeterminate gender/sex, hermaphrodites, intersexed people, bisexuals (one sense), possibly people with sex chromosomes other than (specifically and fully) XX or XY, and anyone who does not subscribe to or fit within the strict gender/sex binary (of a given society). As such, it is a specification of rempre/remna/prenu co-equal with ninmu and nanmu; it generalized some of the aforementioned cases. Word dispreferred in metaphor/example as sexist; use instead remna or prenu. See also: ninmu, nanmu, remna, prenu, makcu, bersa, tixnu, paznu, nakni, fetsi, dinti, nanla, nixli, verba, vepre
petso
gismu rafsi: pet x1 is 10^{15} of x2 in dimension/aspect x3 (default is units). See also grake, mitre, snidu, stero, delno, molro, kelvo, xampo, gradu, litce, merli, centi, decti, dekto, femti, gigdo, gocti, gotro, kilto, megdo, mikri, milti, nanvi, picti, terto, xatsi, xecto, xexso, zepti, zetro
picti
gismu rafsi: pic x1 is a trillionth [10^{-12}] of x2 in dimension/aspect x3 (default is units). Cf. grake, mitre, snidu, stero, delno, molro, kelvo, xampo, gradu, litce, merli, centi, decti, dekto, femti, gigdo, gocti, gotro, kilto, megdo, mikri, milti, nanvi, petso, terto, xatsi, xecto, xexso, zepti, zetro.
pleji
gismu rafsi: lej le'i x1 pays/compensates/remunerates/[rewards] payment x2 to recipient/payee x3 for goods/services x4. Also x4 commodities; x4 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 (= posle'i, posyvelyle'i for unambiguous semantics); rent (= jerle'i, lejyjbera). (cf. canja, cnemu, friti, kargu, vecnu, jdima, prali, jerna, sfasa, dunda, jinga, dapma; see note at jdima on cost/price/value distinction, cirko, dirba)
remrnunmu
fu'ivla x1 is a non-binary-gendered humanoid person [not necessarily adult] Umbrella term for any non-man non-woman (in some aspect/consideration/standard) humanoid person; possibly includes: transgenders, people of no gender/sex, people of indeterminate gender/sex, hermaphrodites, intersexed people, bisexuals (one sense), possibly people with sex chromosomes other than (specifically and fully) XX or XY, and anyone who does not subscribe to or fit within the strict gender/sex binary (of a given society). As such, it is a specification of rempre/remna/prenu co-equal with ninmu and nanmu; it generalized some of the aforementioned cases.

salri
experimental gismu x1 is the differintegral of x2 with respect to x3 of order x4 with starting point x5 Definition of which differintegral operator is being used is context dependent. Output x1 is a function, not a value (that is, it is f rather than f(x)); it must be specified/restricted to a value in order to be a value. x2 is likewise a function. If the function has only one variable, x3 defaults to that variable; when x2 is physical, without context, time will probably usually be assumed as the default of x3 (but may be made explicit by temsalri). Positive values of x4 are integrals, negative values are derivatives, and zero is identity; at the least, any real value may be supplied for x4; x4 has no default value. Useful for making lujvo for physics, for specifying career/total/sum versus peak/instantaneous value, for distinguishing between instantaneous versus average values/quantities, for specifying rates, generalized densities (including pressure), "per" for smooth quantities, etc. See also: salrixo (synonymous zi'evla).

sovda
gismu rafsi: sov so'a x1 is an egg/ovum/sperm/pollen/gamete of/from organism [mother/father] x2. (poorly metaphorical only due to gender- and species- being unspecified): ovoid, oblate (= pevyso'aseltai, but better: claboi); egg, specifically female (= fetso'a), of a bird (= cpifetso'a, cpiso'a), of a chicken (= jipcyfetso'a, jipcyso'a. (but note that Lojban does not require specificity, just as English doesn't for either milk or eggs; "sovda" is fine for most contexts); If fertilized, then tsiju or tarbi. (cf. ganti, gutra, mamta, patfu, rorci, tsiju, lanbi, tarbi; also djine, konju for shape, tarbi)
tcaxe
experimental gismu x1 (object) has charge x2 (number) in units x3 for interaction/of type x4 and in/by/using convention x5 Generic type of charge; individual charges tend to be scalars. For electromagnetism, the meaning of a "positive charge" is either the signum of the charge of an electron for electricity or the signum of the charge of a south magnet for magnetism. Includes mass (gravitation charge (gavytcaxe) if it is being treated as such; x2 default: ma'u), electric charge (dicmytcaxe), (strong) isospin, weak isospin, color charge (Quantum Chromodynamics; tsabytcaxe), intrinsic spin/Dirac-Pauli charge, most quantum numbers (lepton number, baryon number), etc. See also: majga, dikca, eldicka'u, kuardicka'u, paulcna, plankexu, grake.
terto
gismu rafsi: tet x1 is a trillion [10^{12}] of x2 in dimension/aspect x3 (default is units). Cf. grake, mitre, snidu, stero, delno, molro, kelvo, xampo, gradu, litce, merli, centi, decti, dekto, femti, gigdo, gocti, gotro, kilto, megdo, mikri, milti, nanvi, petso, picti, xatsi, xecto, xexso, zepti, zetro.
turni
gismu rafsi: tru x1 governs/rules/is ruler/governor/sovereign/reigns over people/territory/domain/subjects x2. x2 need not be complete specification of set of governed; reign/rule (= noltru); king/queen/sovereign (= nolraitru); pure democracy (= roltrusi'o), representative democracy (= rolka'itrusi'o), viceroy (= ka'itru), pure communism (= kaurpo'esi'o), board of directors/trustees, steering committee (= trukamni); government (= trugunma, trugri (emphasizing the components), truci'e (emphasizing the organization)). See also catni, minde, tutra, jecta, gugde, ponse, jitro.
