nicfa
experimental gismu x1 (vector) is the displacement of x2 (object/point) relative to x3 (object/point; contextless default: origin) in coordinate system/frame of reference/as measured by x4 according to definition/standard/(meta)physics x5 x1 is (four-)vector-valued; it is a function that maps to a tensor (probably a vector or scalar) to a (four-)vector. Units are handled in x1, which will be a (four-)vector of mitre or the like. Time of measurement is just «ca» or the argument of the function(s) in x1, or can be defined instantaneously by x4. Proposed short rafsi: -nif-. See also: nifkemtemsalri.
nifkemtemsalri
lujvo x1 (vector) is the differintegral (with respect to time) of order x2 of the displacement of x3 (object/point) relative to x4 (object/point/frame of reference; contextless default: origin) in coordinate system/frame of reference/as measured by x5 according to definition/standard/(meta)physics x6, taken with starting point x7 This word uses two experimental gismu (one with an experimental rafsi): nicfa and salri. If x2 is positive, then x1 is a time-derivative (velocity, acceleration, jerk, etc. (for whole number values)); if it is negative, then x1 is a time-integral (moments); if it is 0, then x1 is displacement itself. x1 is vector-valued.
nifkemtemsalryke'ecusna
lujvo x1 (scalar-valued) is the magnitude of the vector of the differintegral (with respect to time) of order x2 of the displacement of x3 (object/point) relative to x4 (object/point/frame of reference; contextless default: origin) in coordinate system/frame of reference/as measured by x5 according to definition/standard/(meta)physics x6, where the differintegral is taken with starting point x7, in metric/by definition x8 This word uses three experimental gismu (with one experimental short cmavo for one of these): nicfa (-nif-), salri, cusna.
notci
gismu rafsi: not noi x1 is a message/notice/memorandum about subject x2 from author x3 to intended audience x4. Emphasis on brevity, single or identifiable subject (contrast with xatra: the emphasis in notci is on the single or cohesively focused subject, while the audience is less defined - indeed only an 'intended' audience. xatra need not have a single or focussed subject - its corresponding place is for 'content'); reminder/memo/note (= mojnoi). See also xatra, nuzba, mrilu, morji.
pi'ei'oi
experimental cmavo mathematical ternary operator: prime-generating function The a-th prime according to ordering rules b in ring c; contextless default for c is the standard/typical ring of integers (Z,+,*); contextless default for b is the standard typical ordering of the ring, which is the 'normal' absolute value (signless difference/distance with/from 0) for the standard ring (Z,+,*); thus, it will usually operate as an unary operator. The function must be defined over the set of strictly positive integers in/for the first operand; generalizations may be possible. Ignores units and 0. It begins counting at 1 [in/for the first operand]; under contextless default conditions, the outputs increase strictly monotonically with respect to increase in the first input [a], starting with the least prime in (Z,+,*), namely 2. Usually denoted "p_i" or "Prime" in the literature.
pi'eitci
fu'ivla x1 (the acidity/hydrogen activity of a solution) measures x2 in pH according to scale (si'o) x3 using logarithmic base x4 (default: ten) x1 should not be an object/solution itself (that would be sumti-raising), but rather its acidity/basicness/hydrogen activity; in theory, something other than hydrogen activity could be measured (in which case, it would no longer truly be pH but, for some substance X, actually pX). x3 should specify a reference acidity and its associated pH value (for example: pure water has a pH of exactly 7), the meaning of changing the pH by 1, and in which direction basicness (xor acidity) increases (traditionally: toward positive infinity is representative of relativelt increasingly basicness); x2 can be any real number (not just restricted to the interval from 0 to fourteen), so long as it is pure (dimensionless).
pluta
gismu rafsi: lut lu'a x1 is a route/path/way/course/track to x2 from x3 via/defined by points including x4 (set). A route merely connects origin/destination, but need not be improved in any way; (x4 is a set of points at least sufficient to constrain the route relevantly). (cf. litru, naxle, tcana, dargu, klaji, ve klama; tadji, zukte for means to a goal, klama, pagre)
pulji
gismu x1 is a police officer/[enforcer/vigilante] enforcing law(s)/rule(s)/order x2. Police officer, as an agent of authority (= ca'irpulji, ka'irpulji), as part of a police force (= puljysoi, as part of puljyselsoi); military police (= jempulji, bilpulji). See also catni, sonci, bilni, flalu, bandu, jemna, zekri, krati.
pupsu
experimental gismu x1 is a waterfall (geological and hydrological, semi-permanent feature) with source/flowing fluid x2 (fluid need not be water), with rock/terrain characteristics/grade (slope)/features x3 in potential (gravitational well/field) x4; mass/quantity of fluid x2 flows over feature x3 so as to fall /tumble down it (continuously) Despite the gloss, the waterfall need not constitute falling water specifically, just a falling-tumbling fluid. x3 might be (but is not necessarily strictly) a terrain feature underlying the flow of the fluid. Proposed short rafsi: -pup-. Confer: falri'e, jacfa'u, jacfalstu.
ratcnrodentia
obsolete fu'ivla x1 is a rodent [member of eutherian mammal Rodentia] of subtaxon/type/genus/species/breed/variety x2 Meant for any rodent in general (more general than ratcu, smacu). See also: ratcu, smacu, ronte. If ronte is accepted as an official (non-experimental) gismu, this word would be dispreferred to ronte or rontnrodentia; presently, whether only Rodentia or any "small, scurrying mammal" can be so-referred is vague (although probably preference is the strict sense of only Rodentia).
rindo
experimental gismu x1 is/reflects/pertains to Native American/Amerindian/First Nations person(s) ['race'; generalized] culture/status in aspect x2, of subtype/particular subcategory/group/tribe x3, by definition/standard/societal classification system x4 Makes no implications of relative status etc. See also: tutle, kapli, maska, xispo, abniena, niengatu, nienke'a, ancinabe, tsalagi, siksika.
rontnrodentia
obsolete fu'ivla x1 is a rodent [can only be a member of eutherian mammal Rodentia] of subtaxon/type/genus/species/breed/variety x2 Meant for any rodent in general (more general than ratcu, smacu). If ronte is accepted as an official (non-experimental) gismu, this word would be dispreferred to ronte or rontnrodentia. If ronte is accepted as an official non-experimental gismu, this word is preferred to ratcnrodentia. While ronte should, strictly speaking, refer to only scientifically-classified rodents, semantic broadening might allow its use to refer to any "small, scurrying mammal"; this word would be used for semantic disambiguation, its only allowed reference set is that of scientifically-classified rodents (order Rodentia).
rupnu
gismu rafsi: rup ru'u x1 is measured in major-money-units (dollar/yuan/ruble) as x2 (quantity), monetary system x3. Also pound, rupee, franc, mark, yen; x1 is generally a price/cost/value. See also jdini, sicni, jdima, vecnu, fepni, dekpu, gutci, minli, merli, bunda, kramu.
sanli
gismu rafsi: sa'i x1 stands [is vertically oriented] on surface x2 supported by limbs/support/pedestal x3. x1 is standing; x1 stands up; x1 is erect/vertical/upright; x1 bows/bends over (= krosa'i, krosa'ibi'o, plosa'i); frame of reference is (approximate) perpendicularity to the surface, and not to a gravity field. See also kamju, sraji, tuple, zbepi, sarji.
sepli
gismu rafsi: sep sei x1 is apart/separate from x2, separated by partition/wall/gap/interval/separating medium x3. Also aloof (= jiksei); alone (= rolsmisei meaning apart or unlike all others of its kind; pavysei, seirpavmei meaning "only" or "one alone" - do not use when talking about, for example, two people who are alone); x3 space. See also bitmu, snuji, senta, fendi, curve, jinsa, bitmu, marbi.
setca
gismu rafsi: se'a x1 (agent) inserts/interposes/puts/deposits x2 into interior x3/into among/between members of x3. Insertion need not imply a significant degree of 'filling'; inject (= je'erse'a); syringe/needle (= se'arterje'e, je'erse'atci, jestu'u or tu'urjesni); also pour, inflate, stuff, fill. See also rinci, tisna, punji, jbini, nenri, jmina, culno, kunti, catlu.
