madyske
lujvo s1 (mass of facts) is the study of conduct-governing standards s2=m1 based on methodology s3. Major branches of ethics include "meta-ethics" ({ckaji zei madyske}), "normative ethics" ({bilga zei madyske}), "applied ethics" ({pilno zei madyske}), "moral psychology" ({menli zei madyske}), and "descriptive ethics" ({skicu zei madyske}). Cf. saske.
mo'icli
lujvo c1=m1 memorizes/commits to memory c2=m2 (du'u) about subject c3=m3 from source c4 (obj./event) by method c5 (event/process)) This word is different from cilre in that it doesn't include actual understanding of the memorized data but merely the storage of it in one's memory.
monfu'igau
lujvo x1=g1 (agent) emulates x3=f2 resulting in emulation/imitation x2=f1 in medium x4=f3 by method x5=f4 exhibiting pattern x6=m1. Cf. monfu'i.
nobli
gismu rafsi: nol no'i x1 is noble/aristocratic/elite/high-born/titled in/under culture/society/standard x2. Also upper-class; high/low, upper/lower are poor Lojban metaphors; note x2 standard applies when the title/nobility is not recognized culture/society wide; this would include self-assumed titles. See also banli.
puvba'uxausku
lujvo p1 is a/the rhetorical process by b1=c1 (agent) verbally expressing c2 (sedu'u/text/lu'e concept) for audience c3, good/beneficial/nice for x2 by standard x3 proceeding in stages p2. A stage in the rhetorical process is refered to as "lo sexize puvba'uxausku" or just "selpuvba'uxausku".
resyjavbanfi
lujvo r1=b1 is a herp/herptile [amphibian and/or reptile] of species/breed r2=b2. "Herp" is a vernacular term for reptiles and amphibians. It is derived from the old term "herpetile", with roots back to Linnaeus' classification of animals, in which he grouped reptiles and amphibians together in the same class.
tolkli
lujvo x1 (object/medium) is unclear/murky/obfuscating/(at least somewhat/semi-)opaque/impeding/with obstacle/fogs with regard to transmission x2 Do not use for "befuddling"/"confusing". A solar-style eclipse could be so characterized (in which case medium x1 is the solid body of Luna or another significant object); an eclipse caused by a significant physical object blocking the viewing of another (from yet another) by physically intervening (being positioned betwixt them).
xrukla
lujvo x1=xr1=xr2=k1 returns to earlier location x2=xr3=k2 from x3=xr4=k3 via route x4=k4 using means/vehicle x5=k5. See also se'ixru.
zdeltakronekre
fu'ivla x1 is a Kronecker delta function defined on structure x2 which evaluates to one for any argument belonging to subset x3 and which evaluates to zero otherwise x2 determines domain, codomain, and the meaning of "zero" and "one". x3 is a set; for the typical usage of delta(x,n) for fixed n, let x3 be the singleton set such that n is an element thereof.
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.
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.
jvinjiata
obsolete fu'ivla x1 is the IATA (International Air Transport Association) designation/result/standard/code for general subject type x2 (contextless default probably: airports) applied to specific case/entity/procedure/group/hub/terminus/location x3 according to rule/IATA specification/publication x4 published by/according to mandating organization x5 (default: IATA) x1 need not be a name-designation/code (it could be the result of any rule), although it likely will commonly be so. Possible examples of x2-filling sumti include: the code designated to name certain (international) airports, codeshared railway stations, and separate Amtrak (railway) stations, etc.. x3 is probably outlined by IATA Resolution 763, but the exact publication of the IATA Airline Coding Directory could also be specified. For an airport (generalized)/hub that has such a specification, use {te jvinjiata} or {te se jvinjiata} (using the appropriate terbri for specifying the type of hub: tebri j2); for IATA, consider using {xe jvinjiata}. See also: jviso, jvinjica'o.
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
cu'au'ei
experimental cmavo mekso binary/unary operator: multinomial coefficient/binomial coefficient/choose If unary, a list (n1,...,n_r) must be supplied as input; the terms of the list may not be distinct; for appropriate values, output is ((n1 +...+ n_r)!)/((n1)! *...* (n_r)!). If binary, a single number n must be supplied for the first variable and the second variable must be a list (k1,...,k_s); for appropriate values, the output is (n!)/((k1 !) * ((n - k1)!) *...* (k_s !) * ((n - k_s)!)); note that this is not exactly the typical definition, but it allows for easier immediate usage for the binomial case (where s=1).
datnrzbaselpla
fu'ivla x1 is a makefile designed to produce output files / data / event x2 from rules x3. Doesn't refer only the makefiles for GNU make, but also to any such similar files intended to automate the building process. Technically and usually, makefiles just run commands which in turn are what create the output, but the x2 allows us to skip the extra verbosity by specifying the output data directly. If output data is irrelevant, i.e. the makefile runs commands which have no real output, then an event can be used to specify the result of the makefile. See also zbaplrjavni for how to fill the x3.
