experimental cmavo mekso ternary operator: positive super-logarithm; the super-logarithm (inverse operator of hyper-operator with respect to "height" of power tower) of a with base b and of order c-2 c is a nonnegative number (currently, must be an integer). Currently, b must be a positive integer in order to be well-defined. c=3 produces the normal/standard/simple logarithm; c=4 produces slog. See also: te'au'u, fe'au'u, dei'au'o.
experimental cmavo GOI attachment modifier: allows a cmavo of selma'o GOI (which must follow immediately) to be attached to a selbri This word must (ignoring quotes, etc.) be preceded by a selbri (to which it immediately attaches, even in sumti) and must be followed by a member of selma'o GOI (ignoring erasure, etc.). All other semantics and syntax of the GOI construct remains the same, it just applies to the selbri immediately prior to this word, rather than a sumti. See also: po'oi.
cmavo-compound technical meaning; marks a construct as jargon/terminology/technical/precise/exact speech/text Marks how a construct is to be interpreted/understood. Similar, but not equivalent, to pe'anai and sa'e. If a construct should/could be interpreted in a technical sense (such as the word "likelihood" in English in the field of statistics) AND is actually being used in that technical sense (rather than in a layperson sense), it may be marked for technical interpretation by this word. See also: pe'ai
fu'ivla p1 (agent) drinks/imbibes latte refreshment p2 [caffelatte/(masala) chai latte/mate latte/matcha latte] from/out-of container/source p3. x2 could be any hot beverage with milk. Specifically calling people "latte drinkers" (=le'e pixrlate; stereotypical) has become a common political attack in Western cultures. For non-cultural specific usage: coffee with hot milk (=glaladyckafi). See also: kaffelatte (=kafrlate), chai latte (=tcatrmasala be lo ladru; pixrlate be lo tcatrmasala).
lujvo x1=m1 (non-agentively) suddenly moves/teleports/abruptly relocates/'jumps' in location to destination x2=m2 from origin x3=m3 by path (if applicable) x4=m4 (default: linear/projective/geodesic path connecting endpoints is implicitly assumed by speaker, but actual movement over this path is not necessary and may not even actually be true) Concerning x4: for example, teleporting from one point on Earth to another does not involve any actual movement physically over a path, but the movement can be considered to 'be over' the linear/geodesic interval connecting the endpoints. Movement in this sense relies on a change of location, not necessarily any intermediate connecting steps/paths.
experimental cmavo mekso ternary operator: Knuth up-arrow notation: a \textasciicircum{}…\textasciicircum{} b with c-2 arrows ("\textasciicircum{}") initially, evaluated from right to left; the cth hyperoperator on a by b c must be a nonnegative integer. c=0 is the lowest-order hyperoperator in the structure. Thus, for integers: c=0 is succession of/on b (in which case a can be omitted or be any number), c=1 is addition, c=2 is multiplication, c=3 is exponentiation, c=4 is tetration, etc. Notice that right-grouping is in effect for all c; thus x*(y*z) is calculated, rather than (x*y)*z.
lujvo x1 (predicate) is true when applied to argument list x2 (sequence) Synonymous to brije'u. The x1 slot can be filled with a property/relation (ka) whose number of free slots match the length of the sequence x2. It can also be filled with a bridi abstraction (du'u) —nullary predicate—, in which case the x2 should be the empty set or possibly zi'o. See also bridi.
fu'ivla x1 intends to do/be x2 (ka). From ai and djica.
fu'ivla x1 wants x2 to do/be x3 See also au, koinde
lujvo x1 is a hostage of / is held hostage by x2 Other sumti slots may be needed. See also pinfu.
cmavo-compound right now Narrows the scope/meaning of "now" to be relatively more immediate (but it still may encompass a small interval that extends into the objective/physical past and/or future).
cmevla Holy Roman Empire (of the German Nation) The name can be split into multiple parts such as: la censa je dotco latmo sorgugje'a. An easier endonymic fu'ivla is: dotrxailigesromicraixe
fu'ivla x1 is an emu of variety/species x2. This could also be used for any member of the Dromaius genus, of which there is currently only one surviving species.
fu'ivla x1 is emitted/reflected light that measures to be x2 magnitudes in luminous brightness, on scale (si'o)/using reference value/under system/according to definition x3, in logarithmic base x4 (default: decimal (10)) Wavelength is specified in x1; it is improper to submit an object as the sumti for x1. The type of magnitude (absolute, apparent, etc.) must be specified by tanru or lujvo. x2 must be a pure number (dimensionless). The system/scale being used (x3) must specify the reference emission and its reference value/magnitude (for example: the brightness of Vega measures to be 0 magnitudes in all wavelengths), the unit (the meaning of a change by 1 magnitude), and the direction of increasing brightness (traditionally: lesser magnitudes represent increased brightness); note that magnitude is defined for all real numbers. See also: gu'irnilcarmrmagnitu.
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).
fu'ivla d1 (individual, mass) dances jazz dance to accompaniment/music/rhythm d2. Not to be confused with swing dance. See also jazz music (=zgirdja'aza).
