experimental cmavo two-tier function map/assignment writer notation: X1 (ordered list, no repetitious terms) maps termwise-respectively to X2 (ordered list; may be repetitious but must have exactly as many terms as X1) So named because, in mathematical notation, the domain set of the function is written down in some order in its entirety and then, below it, the range of the function is written so that each image and preimage line up vertically with their appropriate/respective partner. Really useful when mapping from a countable set/object that is either human-small or in which the pattern is clear. Occasionally used for a more explicit form of notation for permutations (in which cycle decomposition is not necessarily as evident, but the structure as a how is, at least, explicit). The ith term of X1 is mapped to the ith term of X2; there is no knowledge of what happens to any value that is not term of list X1. Useful for lambda calculus.
besto
experimental gismu x1 dons metaphorical asbestos suit x2 to guard against flames x3 on topic x4 from x5, who disagrees with post x6 for reason x7, not realizing that the post was meant to be sent to x8 rather than all of mailing list x9 (default jboste) where it was posted in response to email x10, whose author wishes selma'o x11 (default SE) were extended to concisely express place x12 of brivla x13 (default besto) which has place structure x14 and too many places because of sadistic whim x15 of brivla-maker x16, who also created brivla x17 which has place structure x18, and so winds up using too many of cmavo x19 (default zi'o) in order to make the brivla ( x13) more usable by standard x20 and wishes they had never heard of the word besto for reason x21, not realizing for reason x22 that it was suggested sarcastically due to boredom x23 of person x24, who is proposing it against better judgement x25 because it is fun by standard x26, but still wishes it had as many places as x27 (default du) for reason x28, and feels like throwing in epistemology sumti x29, because he/she knows both that gismu x30 (default besto) has its place structure defined by run-on sentence x31 and that epistemology sumti are used in gismu x32 by epistemology x33, notwithstanding the fact that x34 actually has a use for besto places x35 (default 1) through x36 (default x7) and wishes this weren't an extremely long and stupid joke, longer than joke x37 and stupider than joke x38 but still appreciated by x39 - a fact which says x40 about them in the opinion of x41 - but not seen as even remotely amusing by x42, who is aware that x43 has a use for the gismu besto because of x45 A joke gismu from http://mw.lojban.org/index.php?title=besto . Place x_44 is absent for some reason
bi'umra
lujvo m1=b1 is a rampart/bulwark/wall/fence protecting m2 from danger/threat m3, physically separating/partitioning b2 from b3 (unordered), of/in structure b4. The method by which x1 protects x2 is unspecified. It may, for example, physically block x3 from reaching x2, or it may simply give x2 the high ground it needs to protect itself.
caksova
fu'ivla x1 is a bird/reptile egg (not simply the gamete) consisting of yolk x2, white x3 and shell x4 of species x5 (default chicken). Used particularly to refer to eggs that humans tend to eat, particularly chicken eggs, which is why the species place comes so late. Places for the major parts of the egg are included to make terms for "egg yolk" "egg white" and "egg shell".
dekyki'opitki'otre
lujvo d1=k^2_1=p1=k^1_1=m1 is d2=k^2_2=k^1_2=m2 (default 1) myriads [tens of thousands of square kilometres] (area unit) measured in perpendicular directions (set)/defined by set of points (set) p2=m3 by standard m4. The term has a particular use in connection with the British Ordnance Survey national grid and the US Military grid reference system.
jivnrfarzu'e
fu'ivla x1 (mass/set) do orienteering in competition of type x2 [property of the event] with (other) rule(s) x3 [property of each participant]. The x2 is the major type of the orienteering event, be it Score-O, point-to-point, or other types such as MountainBike-O, etc. The x3 is a property of the individual participants, including things like "not allowed to go beyond point X" or "beating up other participants is allowed" etc. The tanru "jivnrfarzu'e se gunma" is sufficient to say "I do orienteering".
kulmu'o
lujvo x1=c4=m1 graduates/completes coursework from x2=c1 at location x3=c2 in subject matter x4=c3, by the standards of the administration x5=c5=m3 This is really a dropped SE of velkulmu'o. m2 is the implied "property of learning at c2 subject matter c3 from school c1"
lu'erfu
fu'ivla x1 (quote) is a text/word/sequence wherein the characters/phonemes are taken over alphabet x2 (set) For formal language analysis. In mathematical writing, this relationship is sometimes written as "/"; the set of all x1 (where x2 is specified) is x2* (where "*" is the Kleene star); then x1 is an element/member of x2*, and the letters of x1 are elements/members of x2. While each letter in x1 must be an element of x2, there can be elements of x2 that do not appear in x1.
mardeji
fu'ivla x1 judges/rates/opines x2 [abstraction] to have morality score x3 [number; default: 1] in respect/according to standard/judged according to or in system x4; x1 believes in (the (im)morality of) x2 Beware sumti-raising in x2. x3 should be a real number between -1 and 1 (inclusive); x3=1 is perfectly good/moral/virtuous, x3=0 is neutral, and x3=-1 is completely immoral/despicable.
pi'ei'au
experimental cmavo mathematical ternary operator: not-greater-prime-counting function Outputs the number of prime numbers that are less than or equal to the input value a according to ordering rules b in ring c; contextless default for c is the standard/typical ring of integers (Z,+,*); contextless default for b is the standard typical ordering of the ring, which is the 'normal' absolute value (signless difference/distance with/from 0) for the standard ring (Z,+,*); thus, it will usually operate as an unary operator. Usually denoted "π(n)" in the literature.
sigma
experimental gismu x1 is the standard variation of/in data set/distribution x2; x1 is the quantified (in)accuracy of the results x2 given by some observation or measurement (procedure), calculated from/by standard x3 Technically, there really is only one possible standard deviation, but in practice, it is often approximate via some means x3 (such as assuming that the distribution is Gaussian, even if it actually is only a finite data sample x2).
si'impetotki
fu'ivla x1 (value, state, form) is the asymptote/limit [Calculus sense] of x2 as independent variable x3 tends toward x4 along path x5 x1 is asymptotic (one sense); x2 is asymptotic (different sense). Although usually used in English when an extreme value is involved (in either x1 or x4) the Lojban usage can probably be pretty general and mean "limit along a path"; in this usage, delete x5 for "limit" in the stronger sense.
ta'ei
experimental cmavo discursive: reconsideration of statement - continuing (on) in that line of thought/discussion Common English phrases that may (based on context) indicate reconsideration of what has been or was about to be said: reconsider, back-pedal, "On second thought", second thinking, "Eh", "Never mind", "Forget that (all)", "I should not have said that", "Actually, ...", conversational U-turn, revise, retrace (with intent to brush aside/over, ignore, move in different direction of conversation), reevaluate, reweigh, review, rethink (that), emend/correct (with intent to avoid a certain path of discussion), etc.
vokpravelpe'u
lujvo x1=p4 is the locus/place of (vocal) articulation of sound/vocal product x2=v1=c2 made by instrument/locus/vocalization tool x3=p3 in individual speaker x4=v2=c1=p1 x3 will most likely be loci of the surface of the tongue, lips, teeth, interior regions of the cheeks, uvula, epiglottis, glottis, pharynx, roof of the mouth, jaws, etc. (Arguably could apply to regions of crickets legs aand other parts of the body for various organisms/entities, including humans; but it must be "vocal" in a generalized sense).
ti'ormanku
lujvo x1=m1 is shade-darkened/has shadow x2=c1 cast upon it by obfuscating/blocking/(at least semi-)opaque object x3=c2 from energy/light/transmission source x4=c3; x2 is the shadow-eclipse caste upon x1 by x3, blocking radiation from x4 Possible uses include (but are not limited to) lunar-style eclipses in which the eclipsed object (as seen from another object) is not physically blocked from sight by yet another object but is shaded from sight by the shadow cast upon it by some object (possibly the one from which the eclipse is viewed). There is no real physical difference between this and a solar-style eclipse (both rely on linear alignment of bodies), but the chosen vantage point varies among them and thus causes different interpretations of the same phenomenon of alignment. In other words, it is an eclipse in which the eclipsed object is viewed to be darkened by a shadow (caste upon it by some object) with no significant blocking/impeding body physically betwixt the eclipsed object and the object from which viewing of the eclipse occurs.
mucydekpu
lujvo d1 is d2 (default 1) tablespoon(s)/tablespoonful(s) [volume-unit], standard d3=m1 (default 1=15 mL),d4 dessertspoon(s),d5 teaspoon(s), d6 one ml measuring spoon(s). x3 could be a particular spoon. x3 could also be for example the Australian standard (={lo sralo}; 20 mL) or the unofficial unit of the Apothecaries' system of measures in the 18th century, equal to 4 drams or 1/2 fluid oz. It was more commonly known by the Latin cochleare majus (abbreviated cochl. maj.) or, in Apothecaries' notation, f℥ss or f℥ß.
