ji'o'e
experimental cmavo connective: elliptical/generic/vague Like zo'e or co'e, but for connectives. The connectives referred to may be logical or non-logical; they take the form proper for the syntax/context (probably is best implemented using post-original CLL connective system modification such as the MAD proposal or the system developed by selpa'i); in standard original CLL usage, this would be the inter-tanru after-thought connective. Synonymous with but morphologically and phonotactically allowed version of .y'i.
jvomi'u
lujvo The lujvo m1=l1 (text) is an equivalent/interchangable lujvo form of lujvo m2=l1 (text). This refers to the fact that Lojban's lujvo can have many forms, all of which are considered to be equal in meaning automatically. See The Lojban Reference Grammar, chapter 4, section 5: https://lojban.github.io/cll/4/5/ Not to be confused with “synonymous” (selsmudu'i), which may apply to entirely different words. Cf. lujvo, mintu.
ka'o'ai
experimental cmavo imaginary i (non-comma) This is literally a unit, a pure number that is treated as a scalar; it is what happens when considering C to be a field over C - ordered pairs/tuples for coordinates no longer make much sense. Thus, this number operates exactly as one might think i would/should operate: as a single number, without components. In certain bases, it can be used a pure digit (which simplifies some potential numeric strings, compared to the usage of ka'o therein). See also: ka'o
karni
gismu x1 is a journal/periodical/magazine/[newspaper] with content x2 published by x3 for audience x4. x2 may be a subject, but not all journals have a single subject; all have some sort of principle defining what is included, so this need not be a list. See also papri, pelji, tcidu.
la'au
experimental cmavo start grammatical name quotation; the quoted text is an identifier and must be grammatical on its own. Used to make more complex names where simple la doesn't apply, e.g. some book/song titles. Artibrary non-lojban text can be quoted with la'o. See also lai'e of LAhE, la'ai of LOhU and la'o of ZOI for naming cmavo.
lasna
gismu rafsi: la'a x1 (agent) fastens/connects/attaches/binds/lashes x2 to x3 with fastener x4. No implication that result is considered a single object; although x2 and x3 may be reversible, x3 may be used for the substrate, the fixed/larger object to which x2 becomes attached. See also jorne, fenso, jgena, batke, dinko, kansa.
le'elkai
fu'ivla x1 is/are the thing(s) described/named with property x2 by the speaker, who thinks this is contextually enough information for the listener to understand what are x1's referent(s) This predicate is intended to be the predicate equivalent of le (or at least to one of the interpretations thereof), so that «lo le'elkai be lo ka broda» is equivalent to «le broda». See also le, lemkai.
lenjo
gismu rafsi: len le'o x1 is a lens/glass [focussing shape/form] focussing x2 to focus/foci x3 by means/material x4. (adjective:) x1 is optical; focussing may be optical or otherwise, hence x2 which may be light, sound, X-ray, etc., default is light/optical lens; ka is refraction. See also kacma, minra.
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.
mecraizmana'u
lujvo x1 (number) is the supremum of set x2 under (partial) ordering x3 x2 must be a set; although it is standard (and lazy) mathematical practice to speak of "the supremum of a function" (including sequences) in some domain or to constrain the supremum with respect to certain variables in some way, all of these features can and ought to be constraints defining the set of which the supremum is taken; in Lojban, no leeway is given toward such sloppiness. See also: zmaraimecna'u, nacyzmarai.
nakpibyta'u
lujvo x1=t1 is boxer shorts/boxer briefs/briefs/jockstrap (male genital underwear), serving purpose x2=t3 Male genitalia/crotch/penis-covering type of underwear. Needn't be worn by male/man/boy but garment need be made for male genitalia/pubic region in some manner (see fetpibyta'u/pibyta'u for female/non-defined counterpart). Cf. nerta'u, taxfrbikini, tatyta'u.
nalvaimenre
lujvo x1 is any referent of x2 ; x2 has a set of referents, but the difference between the members of the set is not important One possible interpretation of xe'e. (xe'ere lo mu plise) → (re nalvaimenre be lo mu plise); (xe'ere plise) → (re nalvaimenre be ro plise). See le'elkai, itca, menre. Shortening: nalvaime
ni'a'au
experimental cmavo mekso n-ary operator: append covariant (lower) indices to tensor Terminated by te'oi'oi. Takes ordered input (A, X_1, X_2, …, X_(n-1)), where A is a tensor and X_i is an index with an understood (or elsewhere defined) ordered domain. It appends/assigns X_i to be the ith covariant index of A, which is usually designated as a subscript in the ith position to the right of A. See also: ga'u'au. It is probable that Einstein summation notation will be conventionally in effect.
pe'ai
experimental cmavo discursive: layperson/laïc meaning; marks a construct as layperson/common/non-technical/non-jargon speech/text Similar, but not equivalent, to pe'a and sa'enai. If a construct could be interpreted in a technical sense (such as the word "likelihood" in English in the field of statistics) but is not being used in that technical sense, it may be marked for layperson interpretation by this word. See also: pe'ainai.
preri
experimental gismu x1 is a non-binary-gendered parent of x2; x1, which does not subscribe/follow the gender binary (could be hermaphroditic, intersex, asexual, nongendered, transgender, etc.), begets/sires/acts parentally toward x2; [not necessarily biological] Specifies rirni so as to be co-equal to but neither patfu nor mamta. See also: dinti, rirni, mamta, patfu, nunmu.
ro'irbi'o
lujvo x1=b1 becomes rock/is petrified/is fossilized/is transformed into a statue x2=r1=b2 (result) of composition x3=r2 at/from location x4=r3 under condition x5=b3 The process by which this happens is not specified and can be bio-geological (as with petrified trees) or magical (as with Medusa). x1 may not be biological.
