fu'ivla x1 (event/state) is on Tuesday or the second day of a week x2 in system x3. lo jednre = lo se jefydeidetri be li re. The Stage-4 fu'ivla form should be jedlre, but it is avoided for easiness of pronunciation. See also detri, detke'u, jeftu; jednpa, jednre, jednci, jednvo, jednmu, jednxa, jednze.
fu'ivla x1 (event/state) is on Sunday or the seventh day of a week x2 in system x3. lo jednze = lo se jefydeidetri be li ze. In the system Gregorian, ``jedlno'' can be substituted for ``jednze''. See also detri, detke'u, jeftu; jednpa, jednre, jednci, jednvo, jednmu, jednxa, jednze.
lujvo x1=di1=dj1 is a regularly-occurring period of days off work [weekend] lasting x2=dj2 days, recurring every x3=j2=di3 weeks (default 1), for worker x4=g1, at job x5=g2 cf. nalgundei, jeftu, dikni, gunka, djedi, di'i, na'e; "Weekend" (the last two days in a week, presumed to be a rest from work) is a culture-specific concept. It was felt more appropriate to make a word meaning "work holiday" and leave the days/week[s] to be specified by the person.
gismu rafsi: cmu x1 is a basis/foundation/underlying or fundamental principle of x2; x1 is at the bottom of x2. x2 is founded on basis x1 (= selcmu for reordered places); (adjective:) x1 is basic/basal/fundamental); (generally events and properties will be bases for events and states, while objects may be bases/bottoms for objects). See also cmavo list ji'u, jamfu, zbepi, genja, krasi.
experimental gismu x1 consists of the economic system (production and distribution and consumption) of sector components x2; x1 is economic. x2 may be a country or other area, the labor, capital and land resources, and the economic agents that socially participate in the production, exchange, distribution, and consumption of goods and services of that area; they may be joined with JOI. pavmomseljikni for "primary sector", relmomseljikni for "secondary sector", cibmomseljikni for "tertiary sector", and vonmomseljikni for "quaternary sector"; gubyseljikni for "public/state sector", sivyseljikni for "private sector", and jikseljikni for "social/voluntary sector". Cf. venci'e, selpraci'e.
lujvo c1=s1 (quoted word(s)) is a name of c2 used by c3 that morphologically [loose] evokes/is similar to/is Lojbanic lujvo l1=s2 (text; may be multiple words), similar in property/quality[/amount?] s3 (ka/ni) s3 will likely just be morphological structure. Strict jvocme are a subclass of jvosmicme. The name must "look like" a (sequence of) lujvo (according to Lojban rules), but need not exactly follow the morphological requirements thereof (in particular, c1 may end with a consonant). See also: jvocme (a specialization), brivlasmicme (a generalization); essentially synonymous with jvocmevla.
experimental cmavo mekso unary operator: cardinality (#, | |) Usually should be reserved for use on sets; if applied to group, it is the cardinality of the underlying set (Which is the order of the group)- but it should probably not be applied to an element of a group. Application to a graph is ambiguous: is it the number of vertices or edges, or both, or neither, (if it defined at all)? For a set, each unique heretofore not counted element increments the running subtotal by 1 if the set is countable (small infinite or finite). See: cu'a, zilkancu, nilzilcmi, gu'au'i.
fu'ivla x1 measures x2 lindars in social context x3. The lindar is a measure of social inappropriatenes. One Lindar roughly equals the average social inappropriateness of lindar (a Lojban central community member). One centiLindar = Mentally laughing at something childish / lavatoriously humorous. Five centiLindars = Chuckling out loud at something when it isn't appropriate (i.e. "I'll be working under you for the duration of this project."). One Lindar = Doing something completely socially inappropriate. One and a half lds. = Being offensive enough to get in trouble and / or get reprimanded. Two lds. = Sufficient to get punched in the face on the spot. Three lds. = Sufficient to get stabbed. Four lds. = Sufficient to be a target of assassination.
experimental cmavo marks word/construct as being optional, i.e. the bridi would still be both grammatical AND reflect the speakers opinion/intention would the marked construct be left out coi fu'e li'oi la fu'o selpa'i would semantically expand to coi la selpa'i and coi selpa'i meaning that both a person named selpa'i and a beloved one is being greeted (both being the same person).
experimental gismu x1 is a quantity of fluff of composition/structure/characterization/substance x2; x1 is fluffy/airy/soft/fuzzy in texture Visual and tactile. Most likely is malleable, but this word has no such implications inherently; porousness or foaminess is likewise not implied. Might also include "cushiony", "cotton-like", "wool-like"; a fractal nature might be present. For fuzziness: not necessarily hairy or furry, but must be soft; not bristly (which implies stiffness and hardness). See also: ranti, rufsu, xutla, panje, dilnu, mapni, sunla, fonmo, jduli, pesxu, marji.
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.
experimental gismu x1 (vector) is the displacement of x2 (object/point) relative to x3 (object/point; contextless default: origin) in coordinate system/frame of reference/as measured by x4 according to definition/standard/(meta)physics x5 x1 is (four-)vector-valued; it is a function that maps to a tensor (probably a vector or scalar) to a (four-)vector. Units are handled in x1, which will be a (four-)vector of mitre or the like. Time of measurement is just «ca» or the argument of the function(s) in x1, or can be defined instantaneously by x4. Proposed short rafsi: -nif-. See also: nifkemtemsalri.
experimental cmavo connective modifer/limiter Used for ji and other connective questions. It is preceded by such a connective (question) word and is followed by the set of words or the selma'o name to which the answer is expected/required to belong; the former may be literally a list of cmavo (such as 'zo .e ce zo .a', meaning that only AND or AND-OR are acceptable responses) or the name of a set of them (such as 'non-logical connectives', 'tanru after-thought connectives', 'symmetric connectives', 'all connectives except .u'. etc.). Terminated by ge'u'i. For example 'do djica tu'a loi ckafi ji noi'i lu .enai li'u ce lu na .e li'u ge'u'i loi tcati' asks 'Do you want: some coffee, some tea - where your answer can be only the former or the latter?'.
lujvo x1=t2 is an element in the set that underlies structure/ring x2≈s3 that is nilpotent in that structure with nilpotency x3=t3 (nonnegative integer according to the typical rules) x3 is the minimum positive exponent such that x1 multiplied by itself that many times (according to the definition of multiplication imposed by and endowing structure x2) is identically the zero(-like) element in that structure; any greater power will likewise be zero(-like). The zero(-like) element is itself trivially nilpotent with nilpotency 1. Warning: This word is for nilpotent elements. Nilpotent groups, for example, should not be referred to by this word except when considered as whole objects that participate as elements in some larger structure. See also: nonsmi
gismu x1 is a pump/injector [tool/apparatus] pumping/inserting fluid x2 to x3 from x4 by means x5. x2 fluid may be liquid or gas; x5 may be a force; a pump generally causes a pressure gradient, such that x3 is a place of lower pressure, x4 a place of higher pressure. (cf. gapci, litki, rinci; metaphorical use of fepri for gas, risna for liquid, rinci, tutci)
experimental cmavo mathematical ternary operator: prime-generating function The a-th prime 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. The function must be defined over the set of strictly positive integers in/for the first operand; generalizations may be possible. Ignores units and 0. It begins counting at 1 [in/for the first operand]; under contextless default conditions, the outputs increase strictly monotonically with respect to increase in the first input [a], starting with the least prime in (Z,+,*), namely 2. Usually denoted "p_i" or "Prime" in the literature.
