ronte
experimental gismu x1 is a rodent [can be a member of eutherian mammal Rodentia; semantic broadening might subjectively generalize the concept somewhat] of subtaxon/type/genus/species/breed/variety x2 gismu version of: ratcnrodentia, rontnrodentia. Meant for any rodent in general (more general than ratcu, smacu). Semantic broadening may allow for any "small, scurrying mammal" to be so named. For the subjective generalization of concept to any "small scurrying mammal" made explicit, unambiguous, and clear: rontysmimabru.
samjudri
lujvo j1 is an adress of / are co-ordinates of computer system / computerized thing j2=s1 in system j3; computerized thing has purpose s2. Normally, s2 might be dropped, but it's very useful to be able to point out if this is a samymri address or a ueb address. Made from skami + judri.
seltagysipna
lujvo x1=t2 snugly sleeps, wrapped in x2=t1, which is snug in direction x3=t3 at locus x4=t4 This does not imply comfort. It simply states that the sleeper is tightly wrapped in what would be assumed to be his/her/its covers. cf. se, tagji, and sipna
stika
gismu rafsi: tik x1 (event) adjusts/regulates/changes x2 (ka/ni) in amount/degree x3. Non-resultative, causal change; agentive adjust (= tikygau, tikyzu'e). See also cenba which need not be causal, galfi which is causal and resultative, binxo which need not be causal but is resultative, zasni, stodi.
suzyterki'i
lujvo x1=k3 is the relationship between x2=k1, x3=k2, x3...; x1 is a property of x2. From su'o te ckini. Any number of places may be used. This word was invented by xorxes and is intended as an alternative to quantified selbri with bu'a; it allows the relations to be specified as sumti.
tabryjirna
lujvo j1=t1 is a/the horn [primitive type/predecessor of brass-wind/lip-reed musical instrument] cut from j2. tabryjirna is foremost a horn jirna rather than a brass instrument tabra, although it is used as a simple musical instrument. Don't to be mistaken for horn (brass instrument;=jirnytabra). x2 may be species or a specific animal. Swedish horn were usually made from cow or goat. The israelic shoar were usually made from sheep.
tairbagycukykruca
lujvo x1 is the conceptualized/ideal/abstract shape of a biconvex lens formed by/manifested from the intersection x2 (parameters) of two-dimensional circular disks immersed (embedded) in geometry/defined by metric x3; x1 is the convex-only region bounded by intersecting circular arcs given by x2 May not be symmetric (statement to such end can be made by specifying parameters of circular disks via x2). This shape is "filled", being formed by the intersection of disks. Contrast with: tairmlunra. See also: cuktai
tasmi
experimental gismu x1 is the way or manner in which activity/event x2 is done/happens Lojban has always been lacking a gismu for "x1 is the manner of event x2" or similar. Later, tai started to be used for it, and then, since a BAI needs a brivla (usually a gismu) to be based on, they invented tamsmi. So tasmi is a true brivla for tai, the BAI of tasmi. Cf. tai, tamsmi
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).
xlajvo
lujvo x1 is a bad/poorly-made lujvo with issue x2, bad according to x3 and by standard x4 The badness need not be an error per se; it may merely be some feature (x2) that is not desirable or relatively preferable. For example, perhaps the terbri structure is not predictable/regular/algorithmic, or the lujvo is very long, or the lujvo is not the highest-scoring lujvo (for some fixed tanru construct) according to an algorithm/standard. See also: srejvo.
y'i
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-sumti connective. [Presently not allowed by morphology/phonotactic constraints. As such is the case, confer: ji'o'e.]
zernerkla
lujvo x1 trespasses (illegally enters) into x2, which is a crime according to x3 klama_3 through klama_5 dropped for being usually irrelevant to this concept; if need be they can be replaced with teka'a/veka'a/xeka'a or ra'i/pu'ai/sepi'o. See zekri, nerkla, gutnerkla
zi'ejvo
lujvo x1 is a lujvo with irregular rafsi, meaning x2, with arguments x3, built from tanru/compound-phrase x4 Refers to a somewhat controversial idea that formal rafsi should be abolished, with coiners of lujvo being able to pick rafsi other than the formally assigned ones. One example might be shortening mitysisku into mitsku. See lujvo, zi'evla
zmaraimecna'u
lujvo x1 (number) is the infimum of set x2 under (partial) ordering x3 x2 must be a set; although it is standard (and lazy) mathematical practice to speak of "the infimum of a function" (including sequences) in some domain or to constrain the infimum with respect to certain variables in some way, all of these features can and ought to be constraints defining the set of which the infimum is taken; in Lojban, no leeway is given toward such sloppiness. See also: mecraizmana'u, nacmecrai.
arco
fu'ivla x1 shows/demonstrates x2 (object/event) to audience x3 Where jarco is for showing/displaying a property, this word is to be used for showing/demonstrating an object.
bavyske
lujvo s1 is futurology/future studies of/about ideas of the future b1=s2 based on methodology s3. Science about the future, not to be confused with science in the future.
