xigzo
experimental gismu x1 pertains/is related to/reflects the 'Higgs' mechanism in manner/with properties/in state/with realization x2, coupling to x3 in manner/with strength x4 The quality of being in the antiparticle/particle realization (for arbitrarily chosen realization being labelled "particle") can be specified in x2. Neither the gismu nor the definition is intended to be other than neutral with respect to those who have contributed significantly in investigations concerning this aspect of nature. Proposed short rafsi: -xig-. See also: jikfi,tsaba, dicma, vubla, grava, kantu, kantrbocuni.
xlarafsrejvo
lujvo x1 is an improperly-created/wrongly-proposed/illy-proposed lujvo with intended meaning x2 but actual interpretation/built from metaphor x3, due to/with error x4 in its rafsi x5, which is unacceptable to x6 by standard x7, in language x8 Notice that terbri structure and conditions of error are not referenced in the terbri of this word. The error could be simply failing to be the highest-scoring lujvo available (for a given tanru) by some algorithm/standard; however, it could also be the product of a certain unintentionally wrong tanru construct (wherein a given meaning was intended but is not reflected in the veljvo). See also: srejvo.
zdeltadirake
fu'ivla x1 is the Dirac delta function (generalized), defined on structure x2 (contextless default is probably the field of real numbers), yielded by family of distributions x3 (contextless default is probably Gaussians centered at 0 and which enclose unit area) This generalized function evaluates to zero (0) everywhere except at 0 (in the domain), at which it evaluates to an infinity (∞) sufficient(ly large) for the purpose of integration to exactly equal one (1) whenever the integral interval properly contains 0 (in the domain). x2 determines what 0, 1, and ∞ mean. Properly, more than a set should be specified; the domain and codomain are determined thereby.
zgana
gismu rafsi: zga x1 observes/[notices]/watches/beholds x2 using senses/means x3 under conditions x4. Behold/watch/gaze (= vi'azga); guard/watchman/sentinel (= zgaku'i, jdeku'i). See also cmavo list ga'a, ganse, viska, catlu, tirna, pencu, sumne, kurji, canci, catlu, jarco, lanli, pinka, simlu.
zifyvlaklerafsi
lujvo x1 (quote) is a zi'evla/fu'ivla categorizer particle/morpheme/unit with meaning/indicating category x2, having properties x3, and that is appended in zi'evla (full word) x4, in language x5 Applies to any categorizer particle/word/morpheme/lexeme/string/unit; does not necessarily have to be a single jborafsi (even in Lojban zi'evla). Does not include the hyphen letter, nor the rest of the word (including any letter prefixed thereto if the rest of the word would otherwise start with a vowel). Quote the empty string (lu li'u) if the explicit categorizer is absent; in general, the quote will likely be improper in Lojban. See also: zifyvlavelvi'u, ra'oi, zi'evla, fu'ivla
tcanaba
fu'ivla x1 (node/vertex/station) is forward of/along from x2 in oriented graph x3 (graph with orientation) using oriented edge path x4 (ordered sequence of ordered pairs). The path from x2 to x1 runs along/is coparallel with/downstream of the orientation on x3 along path x4. Orientation is given from/by x3, so only an edge need be submitted if x3 is fully specified; if x3 is not fully specified, x4 can take the burden of specifying the orientation and subgraph of particular interest (namely, the two vertices x1 and x2, intervening vertices along the path, and the orientation of the given edges connecting them). Note that on an unoriented edge or along a cycle, x1 and x2 might be able to exchange places and/or be equal one another. x4 is an ordered sequence of ordered pairs; the first entry of each pair is the origin node, the second pair is the destination node; the path should probably be connected (so that the destination node of one pair is the origin node of the next, except possibly if it is the last such pair). x1 is not necessarily next (id est: forward adjacent of/from) x2, but it can be. Useful for pages, webpages, family relationships, utterances, etc. See also: grafu, tcanaca, tcanapu.
tcanapu
fu'ivla x1 (node/vertex/station) is backward of/along from x2 in oriented graph x3 (graph with orientation) using oriented edge path x4 (ordered sequence of ordered pairs; oriented edges). The path from x2 to x1 along the (now-unoriented version of the) edges used in x4 is counter/against/upstream of the orientation of x3 (and/or given by the oriented version of x4). Orientation is given from/by x3, so only an edge need be submitted if x3 is fully specified; if x3 is not fully specified, x4 can take the burden of specifying the orientation and subgraph of particular interest (namely, the two vertices x1 and x2, intervening vertices along the path, and the orientation of the given edges connecting them). Note that on an unoriented edge or along a cycle, x1 and x2 might be able to exchange places and/or be equal one another. x4 is an ordered sequence of ordered pairs; the first entry of each pair is the origin node, the second pair is the destination node; the path should probably be connected (so that the destination node of one pair is the origin node of the next, except possibly if it is the last such pair). x1 is not necessarily last (id est: backward adjacent of/from) x2, but it can be. Useful for pages, webpages, family relationships, utterances, etc. See also: grafu, tcanaba, tcanaca
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.
cagna
experimental gismu x1 is an open/closed wound on locus x2 caused by x3. Unlike velxai, it's specific to physical injuries pertaining to the surface of an organic body such as skin. Open wounds include ka'arcagna for "incision / incised wound", fercagna for "laceration", gukcagna for "abrasion", tuncagna for "puncture wound", grecagna for "penetration wound", batcagna for "bite wound", dancagna for "gunshot wound", jelcagna for "burn", da'ercagna for "bedsore", furcagna for "necrosis"; closed wounds include daxcagna for "contusion/bruise", camdaxcagna for "hematoma", ra'ircagna for "chronic wound". The victim (the whole of the injured body) may be specified by joining it to the x2 with "po" or putting it directly on x2 with "tu'a".
campu
experimental gismu x1 (quantity) is a hair cleaning/care/maintenance/styling substance/product for purpose x2 of composition x3; x1 is a quantity of hair product This word is something of an u'ivla. Not restricted to only shampoo (hair cleaning product); can include (but is not limited to): shampoo, conditioner, hair mousse/gel, hair replenisher/grower (for baldness), hair coloring dye, hair styling spray, and even shaving cream/foam; however, it should be a tool/substance applied to hair semi-permanently, rather than applied to it only initially in order to modify it for later (such as a crimper, curler, etc.) - in other words, campu remains with the hair or is scrubbed in and then washed out in order to function. Hair need not be human, of the top of the head, or even "real"/biological/belonging to the individual in question - these characteristics may be specified by x2. This word conflicts with sampu under the gismu-creation algorithm. See also krevelylu'i; kerfrcampu for non-gismu version of same word
carmi
gismu rafsi: cam cai x1 is intense/bright/saturated/brilliant in property (ka) x2 as received/measured by observer x3. Also lustrous, gleaming, sparkling, shining (all probably better metaphorically combined with gusni: gusycai or camgu'i); in colors, refers principally to increased saturation (with opposite kandi). See also denmi, gusni, kandi, ruble, skari, tilju, tsali, mutce, blabi, blanu, bunre, cicna, crino, grusi, narju, nukni, pelxu, xekri, xunre, zirpu.
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.
ce'oi
experimental cmavo argument list separator: acts as a comma between arguments in an argument list supplied to a function. "ce'oi" is the word of choice to separate the arguments in bridi3. Using ce'o there has obvious limitations when the selbri actually calls for a sequence. Obviously, ce'oi has issues too if the selbri can accept an argument list, but this can be circumvented more readily with ke...ke'e brackets than it can with ce'o. Consider ".i lo ka broda cu selbri fi ko'a ce'o ko'e". Without inspecting the type requirements of broda and the respective types of ko'a and ko'e, one cannot determine the meaning of the bridi. Furthermore, if one accepts non-static typing of sumti places, multiple correct answers can be given for a question asking what is the bridi1. This would create ambiguity that is otherwise resolved by "ce'oi". See also ka, du'u, me'au
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.
cmeta
experimental gismu x1 is meta to/an example of x2 that describes such an object/concept/notion/system/topic/etc., being meta in property/aspect x3, and which has features x4, governed by/considered in system/considerations/epistemology/theory x5; x1 is meta (a particular type of abstraction of x2 so as to apply to itself in some sense); x1 is an/a piece of/an example of x2 that applies fractally thereto Does not (necessarily) mean "beyond", "after", "beside"; in some (rather pictoral) senses, these meanings may be necessary but not sufficient for being meta in this sense; thus, "metaphysics" should not be translated using this word. x1 is an object, notion, topic, system, etc. which applies to x2 but which is itself an example thereof; for example, the meanings of the words "metalinguistics" and "metadata" are meta in this sense. It is not necessarily directly self-referential, but could be fractally applicative. x1 is an X that is about (another) X; x1 is an abstraction of X so as to apply to X. x1 does not necessarily abstract [from] (in one sense), but is abstract to, x2. See also: xulta (generalized/weaker), sucta.
cnemu
gismu rafsi: nem ne'u x1 (agent) rewards x2 [recipient] for atypical x3 (event/property) with reward/desserts x4. Differs from earned payment because of atypical nature; rewards need not be positive but are in some sense deserved from the point of view of the rewarder: positive reward (= zanyne'u), punishment, penalty, demerit (= malne'u, sfane'u); 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 (= posne'u, posyvelne'u for unambiguous semantics). See also dunda, friti, jerna, jinga, jivna, pleji, sfasa, venfu, prali, dapma.
