lujvo x1=c1 (person) justifies/expresses justification x2=k2 for x3=p1's complicated-ness in aspect x4=p2 to audience x5=c3 via expressive medium x6=c4. cf. pluja, sampu, krinu, rinka, nibli, gasnu, cusku, tavla, casnu, skicu.
mabla
gismu rafsi: mal x1 is execrable/deplorable/wretched/shitty/awful/rotten/miserable/contemptible/crappy/inferior/low-quality in property x2 by standard x3; x1 stinks/sucks in aspect x2 according to x3.

gismu rafsi: mir x1 reflects/mirrors/echoes x2 [object/radiation] to observer/point x3 as x4; x2 bounces on x1. Also: x1 is a mirror/reflector. x2 may be light, lu'e of an imaged object; x4 may be image or echo or the same as x2 if physical object; x3 may be a path for a bounced object; ka is reflection. See also catlu, viska, lenjo, pensi.
moi'o
experimental cmavo x1 is the PA-th date/time of unit x2 (si'o) counting from x3 (default: now) by calendar x4 x3 is the reference point in time (PA = no). The splicing method depends on x4. For example, at 14:03 on 2014-11-14, the 0th day (x2 = lo si'o djedi) from now is 11-14, the 0th century from now is the 21st century, the 0th month (x2 = lo si'o masti) is November, the 0th afternoon is this afternoon (x2 = lo si'o donri), the 0th night (x2 = lo si'o nicte) refers to nothing (because this time-point is not in night).
mukti
gismu rafsi: muk mu'i x1 (action/event/state) motivates/is a motive/incentive for action/event x2, per volition of x3. Also; x3 is motivated to bring about result/goal/objective x2 by x1 (= termu'i for reordered places); (note that 'under conditions' BAI may apply and be appropriately added to the main predicate level or within the x2 action level). (cf. cmavo list mu'i, nibli, te zukte - generally better for 'goal', se jalge, krinu, rinka, ciksi, djica, xlura)
namcixu
fu'ivla For mo'e x4 x in x1 there exist mo'e x5 y in x2 such that x me'au x3 y; for mo'e x6 y in x2 there exist mo'e x7 x in x1 such that x me'au x3 y. Cf. me'au, mo'e. Somewhat supercedes rolsixu, in that rolsixu is namcixu for x4=x6=li ro, x5=x7=li su'o.
nildenmi
lujvo x1 [number] is the local density of x2 per unit x3 at locus x4 Not necessarily (although possible) volumetric mass density. Could be temporal (x3). Can be applied to number/count; thus, the units may vary and in fact the quantity might even be unitless. In a sense, fluxes are spacial-temporal densities. It is recommended that x2 be a physical entity/object in some sense (not merely have physical quality/meaning/value); thus, while this word could be applied to many things described with the word "per", it would probably not make much sense to call velocity a temporal displacement density (although in some contexts it might). Notice that "local" implies derivatives.
nilmuvyselbai
lujvo x1=n1 (quantity/amount) is the physical work performed on object x2=m1=b2 (object), due to/applied by x3=b1 (force; ka?), in its (x2's) movement to destination x4=m2 [away] from origin x5=m3 along(/by/in/on) path/route x6=m4 It is not clear that x2 can be an event or manifestation; thus bapli2 loses some of its typing. This word was, essentially, proposed by the official gimste.
pambe
gismu x1 is a pump/injector [tool/apparatus] pumping/inserting fluid x2 to x3 from x4 by means x5. x2 fluid may be liquid or gas; x5 may be a force; a pump generally causes a pressure gradient, such that x3 is a place of lower pressure, x4 a place of higher pressure. (cf. gapci, litki, rinci; metaphorical use of fepri for gas, risna for liquid, rinci, tutci)
panra
gismu x1 parallels x2 differing only in property x3 (ka; jo'u/fa'u term) by standard/geometry x4. Also: x1 is parallel to x2, x3 is the only difference between x1 and x2 (= terpanra for reordered places); x1 and x2 are alike/similar/congruent. A parallel involves extreme close similarity/correspondence across the entirety of the things being compared, generally involving multiple properties, with focus placed on one or a small number of differences. See also pa'a, mintu, simsa, girzu, vrici.
pavyfu'ivla
lujvo x1=v1=f1 is a stage 1 fu'ivla meaning x2=v2, based on word x3=f2 in language x4. 'stage 1 fu'ivla' is a term specific to Lojban and described in 'The Complete Lojban Language', chapter 4, section 7. The definition is similar to that of fu'ivla, but with the x3 place of fu'ivla omitted. x1 is assumed to be a Lojban quote including text of any language (see example) as the concept doesn't make much sense for other languages. See also relfu'ivla - 'stage 2 fu'ivla', cibyfu'ivla - 'stage 3 fu'ivla' and vonfu'ivla - 'stage 4 fu'ivla'
pexfebdja
lujvo x1=p1=c1 is a noodle/pasta/boiled dough eaten by x2=c2 made out of x3=p2 (normally grain(s) or legume(s)) which is boiled in x4=f1 (normally water) at temperature x5=f2 and pressure x6=f3 See also febjukpa, grupesxu. luvjo from pesxu, febvi, cidja. Not very jvajvo, but it works.
pilno
gismu rafsi: pli x1 uses/employs x2 [tool, apparatus, machine, agent, acting entity, material] for purpose x3. Also utilize; x2 is useful/used productively by x1 to do x3 (= selpli for reordered places); hire/employ (= le'ipli, lejyplicu'a). (cf. tutci, cabra, minji, gasnu, zukte for x2, cmavo list pi'o, sazri, jibri)
prali
gismu rafsi: pal x1 is a profit/gain/benefit/advantage to x2 accruing/resulting from activity/process x3. Also (fe) x2 profits from x3 (= selterprali for reordered places); x1 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 (= selposprali for unambiguous semantics). See also vecnu, cnemu, pleji, jinga, canja, sfasa, jerna, jdima, dunda, zivle.
prama'eru
fu'ivla x1 is amai to x2 in aspect x3 (Japanese term); x1 does amaeru; x1 plays baby / catered by / protected by / undulged by x2; x1 depends and presumes upon x2's benevolence; x2 is a rabbi/counsellor to x1 without contractual/conditional relationship; x2 helps x1 cope with x3 (e.g. emotional,social, economic life's challenges) See also sidju, stidi, zukti'i, enriio, prami, kamni

'stage 2 fu'ivla' is a term specific to Lojban and described in 'The Complete Lojban Language', chapter 4, section 7. The definition is similar to that of fu'ivla, but with the x3 place of fu'ivla omitted. x1 is assumed to be Lojban text as the concept doesn't make much sense for other languages. See also pavyfu'ivla - 'stage 1 fu'ivla', cibyfu'ivla - 'stage 3 fu'ivla' and vonfu'ivla - 'stage 4 fu'ivla'
