lujvo d4 is d2 (default 1) dessertspoon(s)/dessertspoonful(s)/cochleare medium (dstspn./cochl. med.) [volume-unit], standard d3=m1 (default 1 dessertspoon=10 mL),d1 tablespoon(s),d5 teaspoon(s), d6 one ml measuring spoon(s). As a unit of culinary measure, a level dessertspoon (dstspn.) equals two teaspoons, or 10 milliliters. As a unit of Apothecary measure, the dessert-spoon was an unofficial but widely used unit of fluid measure equal to two fluid drams, or 1⁄4 fluid ounce. (One) Rounded dessertspoon (=lo mucyveldekpu li ji'i ni'u), one heaped dessertspoon (=lo derxi mucydekpu li pa), one level dessertspoon (=lo mucyveldekpu li ji'inai).
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.
lujvo x1 is the one(-like) element/multiplicative identity of structure/ring x2; often is denoted by ' 1_R ' or ' I_R ' or by (when context is obvious) '1' or 'I', for structure/ring R (given by x2). Definition and rules may be specified in the second terbri; this definition does not suppose that the ring is not the 0-ring (the trivial ring) with the mapping of all multiplications to 0 (in which case, the additive identity is also the multiplicative identity). The usage of "additive" and "multiplicative" in this context are defined by the ring. The n×n identity matrix over a given ring is an example of one such element. See also: nonsmi
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).
lujvo x1 =g1 (agent) petrifies/turns/'freezes'/fossilizes x2=b1 into rock/fossil/statue x3=r1=b2 (result) of rock composition x4=r2 and at/from location x5=r3 under conditions x6=b3. Useful for Gorgons/Medusa/Basilisks. x2 need not be a victim and need not die (animation may be suspended, for example) nor be permanently petrified. Petrification must be agentive. The process/mechanism of petrification is not specified and may be natural or magical (etc.). See also: ro'irbi'o.
experimental cmavo mekso string operator (ternary): find-and-replace; in string/text/word/sequence X1 formally replace X2 (ordered tuple of terms to be replaced) with X3 (ordered tuple of terms to be respectively substituted) X2 and X3 are ordered tuples of substrings/letters/characters/letterals/digits/numerals. The ith term in tuple X2 is replaced with the ith term in tuple X3; the replacements are executed simultaneously (thus, no overlap/contradiction can be allowed to arise in the substitution- in particular, in X2) - alternatively, if there is overlap/conflict in/between the terms of X2, the replacements are performed in order of presentation (the ith term in X2 is replaced by the ith term in X3, and then the (i+1)th term in X2 is replaced with the (i+1)th term in X3, starting with the 1st term in each). X2 and X3 must have the same length/number of terms - alternatively, X3 cannot be longer/have more terms than X2; in this situation, the ith term of X2 is replaced with the ith term of X3 until and including when the last term of X3 is reached, after which point the remaining terms in X2 are not replaced at all. Use a permutation acting on X2 as the argument for X3 in order to rearrange the substrings of X1; if the alphabet is ordered, then operators can be applied to the letters in order to rotate through the alphabet. In particular, if X1 is a binary string (a word over an alphabet of two letters) and X2 is the 2-tuple of the letters of that binary alphabet (length-1 substrings), then without specification of X3, this operator defaults to bitwise binary negation (bit conjugation) wherein each letter in X1 is replaced by the unique other letter in the binary alphabet (otherwise, the replacement would be the identity/trivial replacement or just a formal substitution letter-by-letter which does not really change the nature of the word). X1 and each entry in X2 and X3 should be quoted, match a necessary type (such as being a character), or be abstracted a level by symbolics. In general, the replacement is formal and the strings in X3 need not be over the same alphabet as the one over which X1 is written. This operator is useful for combinatorial lines and for expanding digits (such as, in a binary string, replacing each occurrence of "0" with "01" and each occurrence of "1" with "10"; note that the replacement is instantaneous and simultaneous for all terms of X2 and every occurrence of such terms in X1, thus this substitution is perfectly acceptable).
fu'ivla x1 is aware that x1 can be in relation x4 with all of x3 (plural) and choose to be in relation x4 with x2 (which is among x3) To summarize, "x1 chooses x2 out of set x3 to do/have relationship x4 (binary ka)". See also cuxna
lujvo x1=p1 thinks that x2=f1 differs from/is distinct from/contrasts with/is unlike x3=f2 in property/dimension/quality x4=f3; x1 distinguishes between x2 and x3 because of differing property/dimension/quality x4. Use su'ai for distinguishing among more than two things.
lujvo x1=s1=p1 is an episode about x2=s2 [plot/subject] by filmmaker x3=s3 for audience x4=s4, as a part of series x5=p2 The x2 place always describes an episode, but can therefore be used transitively to describe the series x5. This is not necessarily a television series and can refer to an episodic film series as well.
obsolete fu'ivla x1 (notion) is Absurd/is characterized by an Absurd nature in aspect x2, belonging to school of philosophy/type of Absurdism x3, according to standards/methodology/classification/claim x4 flese is an experimental gismu and the short rafsi -les- is not officially assigned. For the term "Absurdism" itself, consider: te lesrxapsurdie. The Absurd in this case is that associated with, for example, Albert Camus and other philosophers.
lujvo x1=n1 is the length of path x2=p1=c1 between x3=p2 and x4=p3 defined by points x5=p4 (set) where the distance is on scale x6=n2=c3 Paths are 1D, so clani2 is derived. Cf. lijnilcla
lujvo x1=m1=c1 expresses/states command x2=c2 to recipient(s) x3=m2=c3 via expressive medium x4=c4. m3 of minde (the desired result) is presumably cointained in he expression of the command. x1 commands x3 with expression x2.
lujvo d5 is d2 (default 1) teaspoon(s)/teaspoonful(s)/cochleare minus (t., ts., tsp. or tspn./cochl. min.)[volume-unit], standard d3=m1 (default 1 teaspoon=5 mL),d4 dessertspoon(s),d1 tablespoon(s), d6 one ml measuring spoon(s). See also: tablespoon (=mucydekpu). (One) Rounded teaspoon (=lo mucyveldekpu li ji'i ni'u), one heaped teaspoon (=lo derxi mucydekpu li pa), one level teaspoon (=lo mucyveldekpu li ji'inai).
lujvo l1=n2 is an Indian lotus/sacred lotus/bean of India (Nelumbo nucifera) [plant/flower/herb], with nuts n1, of strain/cultivar l2 , symbolizing l3 to culture/religion l4. The Linnaean binomial Nelumbo nucifera (Gaertn.) is the currently recognized name for this species, which has been classified under the former names, Nelumbium speciosum (Willd.) and Nymphaea nelumbo, among others. See also latna.
lujvo x1 is the zero(-like)/additive identity of structure/ring x2; often is denoted by ' 0_R ' (for structure/ring R, specified by x2) or by '0' when context is obvious Definition and rules may be specified in the second terbri; this definition does not suppose that the ring is not the 0-ring (the trivial ring) with the mapping of all multiplications to 0 (in which case, the additive identity is also the multiplicative identity). The usage of "additive" and "multiplicative" in this context are defined by the ring. See also: pavysmi
obsolete fu'ivla c1 is a dwarf [mythology/fantasy] of mythology c2. A mythological being that dwells in mountains and in the earth, and is associated with wisdom, smithing, mining, and crafting. Scholars dispute the size of the Norse nature spirit, the Dvergr. As Tolkien was inspired by the dwarves of Norse myths and dwarves of Germanic folklore, this word could be used to refer to the dwarfs of the fictional universe Middle-Earth (Khazad) as well, and possibly of other fantasy universes. The fu'ivla derived from Old Norse: dvergar; Old English: dweorg; Old High German: twerg.
