lujvo x1 is a lujvo with irregular rafsi, meaning x2, with arguments x3, built from tanru/compound-phrase x4 Refers to a somewhat controversial idea that formal rafsi should be abolished, with coiners of lujvo being able to pick rafsi other than the formally assigned ones. One example might be shortening mitysisku into mitsku. See lujvo, zi'evla
gismu rafsi: zif zi'e x1 is free/at liberty to do/be x2 (event/state) under conditions x3.

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

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.

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.

See also pencu, sanji, viska, sumne, tirna, zgana, canci, simlu.
