zifyvlavelvi'u
lujvo x1 (quote) is the non-categorizer and non-hyphen remainder of zi'evla/fu'ivla x2 (quote), with properties/form x3 in language [of zi'evla] x4 Quotation may be improper. This is the part of the zi'evla that carries the specific meaning of the word; in stage-4 fu'ivla, the entirety of the word is this remainder; the categorizer rafsi and hyphen letter(s) are not included. See also: zifyvlaklerafsi
zilbri
lujvo x1 (predicate) is true when applied to argument list x2 (sequence) Synonymous to brije'u. The x1 slot can be filled with a property/relation (ka) whose number of free slots match the length of the sequence x2. It can also be filled with a bridi abstraction (du'u) —nullary predicate—, in which case the x2 should be the empty set or possibly zi'o. See also bridi.
zmadu
gismu rafsi: zma mau x1 exceeds/is more than x2 in property/quantity x3 (ka/ni) by amount/excess x4. Also positive (= nonmau). See also cmavo list mau, mleca, zenba, jmina, bancu, dukse, traji.
zmaraimecna'u
lujvo x1 (number) is the infimum of set x2 under (partial) ordering x3 x2 must be a set; although it is standard (and lazy) mathematical practice to speak of "the infimum of a function" (including sequences) in some domain or to constrain the infimum with respect to certain variables in some way, all of these features can and ought to be constraints defining the set of which the infimum is taken; in Lojban, no leeway is given toward such sloppiness. See also: mecraizmana'u, nacmecrai.
zo si si zei fa'o
obsolete zei-lujvo x1 is a nonsense zei-lujvo using parts x2, silly by standard x3. This lujvo parses in jbofi'e as an artifact of how high precedence zei is, and how zo erasure works. Specifically, [zo WORD si] has not erased the entire zo clause but has killed zo's "magic". fa'o and quoted si are replaceable, but thrown in for fun, to have a full magic-word lujvo.
zunti
gismu rafsi: zun zu'i x1 (evt./state) interferes with/hinders/disrupts x2 (evt./state/process) due to quality x3 (ka). Also blocks, obstructs, baffles; not necessarily forcing cessation. See also fanta, dicra, fliba, fanza, raktu, klina, bandu, cfipu, ganlo.
be'ei'oi
experimental cmavo ternary mekso operator: x1th Bergelson multiplicative interval with exponents bounded from above by function x2 and with sequence of shifts x3, where exponents belong to set x4 x1 must be a positive integer. x2 must be a strictly monotonic increasing function mapping from all of the positive integers to a subset (not necessarily proper) thereof. x3 must be a sequence of natural numbers. x2 without context will default to the same value as x1 (it is simple linear on the set of positive integers), x3 without context will be a sequence all and only of 1's, x4 without context defaults to the set of all non-negative integers. Let p_i be a prime for all i, with p1 = 2 and the ith prime (in the normal monotonic increasing order) being p_i. Let all other symbols match the aforementioned conditions. Represent the nth term of the sequence x3 by x3_n; represent the function in x2 being applied to the number m by x2(m). Then x1 be'ei'oi x2 boi x3 boi x4 produces the set of all numbers of the form x3_(x1) * (p1)^(e1) *...* (p_(x1))^(e_(x1)), where e_j belongs to the intersection of the interval [0, x2(x1)] with x4.
brivlasmicme
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.
centi
gismu rafsi: cen x1 is a hundredth [1/100; 10^{-2}] of x2 in dimension/aspect x3 (default is units). See also grake, mitre, snidu, stero, delno, molro, kelvo, xampo, gradu, litce, merli, decti, dekto, femti, gigdo, gocti, gotro, kilto, megdo, mikri, milti, nanvi, petso, picti, terto, xatsi, xecto, xexso, zepti, zetro.
ciksi
gismu rafsi: cki x1 (person) explains x2 (event/state/property) to x3 with explanation x4 (du'u). Explanation x4 is an underlying mechanism/details/purpose/method for x2 (= velcki for reordered places), generally assumed to be non-obvious; metaphorical usage with the various causal relations (i.e. jalge, mukti, krinu, rinka, nibli, zukte) is possible, but the non-obviousness, and the existence of an explainer with a point of view makes this word not a simple expression of cause. See also cipra, danfu, jalge, jinvi, krinu, mukti, nabmi, preti, rinka, sidbo, zukte, tavla.
digno
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.
dunda
gismu rafsi: dud du'a x1 [donor] gives/donates gift/present x2 to recipient/beneficiary x3 [without payment/exchange]. Also grants; x3 is a receiver (= terdu'a for reordered places); the Lojban doesn't distinguish between or imply possession transfer or sharing; 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 (= posydu'a, posyseldu'a for unambiguous semantics). See also benji, muvdu, canja, pleji, vecnu, friti, sfasa, dapma, cnemu, prali.
ganse
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.
grafu
experimental gismu x1 is the graph on vertices/nodes x2 (set) and edges x3 (set of ordered tuples of vertices in x2) and with additional properties x4. A "web"/"network". An element of x2 is a "place" in a more generic/abstract/metaphoric sense than spatial; must be discrete. Thus, webpages, family diagrams, lattices, pages in a book, cities and roadways on a map, etc. constitute graphs. x1 also includes trees. Notice that both x2 and x3 are sets; a member of x3 is an orderedmember of x3 is an ordered tuple, but the order only matters if x1 is oriented, in which case the edge connects from the first node in the tuple to the second node in the tuple (there should only be two entries in the tuple) tuple, but the order only matters if x1 is oriented, in which case the edge connects from the first node in the tuple to the second node in the tuple (there should only be two entries in the tuple). x4 can include defining features, weights, etc. Equivalent to grafetu (which is merely the fu'ivla form of this word); very similar to tcana.
gugle
experimental gismu x1 searches network or collection of information/data/facts, etc. (especially the Internet) for information on topic/quote x2 using service/tool/search resource/function x3 provided by (host, company, etc.) x4 with accessed information sources (websites, network, documents, books, etc.) x5. x3 is a search engine that provides information/resource/output on topic/query x2 by way of organized and (semi-)automated/quick information search through many providers/sources of information including x5, with search service provided by x4 and provided to/used by/accessible to (potential or actual) user x1 (who does not actually perform the initial search/sorting/recruiting of information). x4 is a search engine service provider able to present search results via service/tool x3. Key word search, academic search, picture search, video search, map search, etc. can be expressed by x3; the algorithm and other means of searching through, organizing and ranking, and presenting the massive amount of information (provided by x5) may likewise be expressed by x3 (in brief). The creation and/or use of this word does not endorse Google or any other search engine service provider. Proposed short rafsi form: –gul–. See also: valfa
incita
fu'ivla x1 (text) is an adposition expressing relation x2 (property of nonce place, has places for ce'u referring to members of x3) and connecting members of the set x3 (ordered group of text) The first member of x3 is what follows after the adposition (unless co is used) and is usually called 'complement' or 'argument'. The second member of x3 can sometimes be called 'noun phrase of adposition'; it can e.g. be the current clause (lo bridi), x1 of it, x2 of it etc. x3 doesn't need to represent the full specification, only the first member can be specified. To specify both members ce'o can be used. See also bridi, sumti, sumtcita
