na'au
experimental cmavo converts an unevaluated mekso expression into a sumti referencing its evaluated result (if sensible/defined) For example, would be prefixed to ke'a in xe'au-NOIhA clauses in order to reference the bracketed (unevaluated, formal) subexpression's evaluated result. In some sense, this word plays inverse of/to me'o, but may see less general use since expressions are typically evaluated at the end of mekso utterances. (Thus, this word may find its greatest amount of usage within mekso expressions before they are concluded and evaluated.)
nektara
fu'ivla x1 is a flower nectar of organ/plant x2; x1 is a liquid secretion that is attractive to pollinators See se ciblu, spasatlitki, sakta, titla. Needn't be sweet as some plants pollinated by flies have nectar that tastes of feces. The word jisra is for 'nectar' in the sense 'juice'
ningau
lujvo x1=g1=c2 renovates/renews/updates x2=c1, making it new in property x3=c3 by standard x4=c4. In a computer context, a tag such as se la'u or a tanru involving va'e can be used to indicate a version number.
nonsmi
lujvo x1 is the zero(-like)/additive identity of structure/ring x2; often is denoted by ' 0_R ' (for structure/ring R, specified by x2) or by '0' when context is obvious Definition and rules may be specified in the second terbri; this definition does not suppose that the ring is not the 0-ring (the trivial ring) with the mapping of all multiplications to 0 (in which case, the additive identity is also the multiplicative identity). The usage of "additive" and "multiplicative" in this context are defined by the ring. See also: pavysmi
nonsmipi'i
lujvo x1 is a zero-divisor partnered with element(s) x2 in structure/ring x3 x1 and x2 are elements of the set underlying x3 and x1*x2=0 in this structure x3 (where "0" denotes the 'additive' identity of the structure ("addition" merely being (one of) its commutative group operation(s))); the aforementioned partnership is so defined. Unlike many textbook definitions, this definition still allows such 0 to itself be a zero-divisor ((so partnered) with any element in the set underlying x3) in x3. See also: narnonsmikemnonsmipi'i
pacpanra
lujvo x1 is an evil counterpart to x2 by moral standard x3, in contrast to x2 having property x4. x4 is implied to be (lo ka vrude) "being good/virtuous", or at the very least (lo ka na'e palci). "being not-evil". See panra, bu'a'a
pei'a
experimental cmavo scalar / attitudinal question: how very...? Essentially asks for NAI/CAI. For selbri/sumtcita, the full range of NAI/CAI may be asked for; see http://mw.lojban.org/papri/zipcpi:_scalar_modifiers and pai'e. For attitudinals, it is limited to ru'e/na'oi/sai/cai or combinations thereof (use pei to ask for the full range).
pemci
gismu rafsi: pem x1 is a poem/verse about plot/theme/subject/pattern x2 by author x3 for intended audience x4. x2 may be a convention rather than a subject. See also prosa, rimni, rilti, finti, lisri, sanga.

pukygau
lujvo x1=g1 (agent) makes x2=p1 (event/state) pleasant to x3=p2 under pleasantness conditions x4=p3; x1 pleases (one sense) x3 with x2 (event/state) The pleasing of x3 by x1 (via x2) need not be sexual in nature, or even direct. See also: glepukygau, glepu'a.
refkusi
fu'ivla x1 is recursively related to x2 by applying x3 (number) levels-of-recursion of the predicate-relation x4 (ka with two ce'u) Short form: efku. tanru example for common usage: the day three days from now (tomorrow's tomorrow's tomorrow) -> lo bavlamdei refkusi be fi li ci . Cf. krefu, rapli, refkusi
ri'au
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: the next/immediately following sumti (as determined by back-counting rules applied forward) Mostly stylistic in use, although certain word orders may help the audience understand what is being said more easily and thus this word can be more desired. Works basically the same as ri but counts forward; if this word were replaced by the referent sumti (the next sumti) and the next sumti were replaced by ri, the meaning of the sentence would not change at all.
ridrdverga
obsolete fu'ivla c1 is a dwarf [mythology/fantasy] of mythology c2. A mythological being that dwells in mountains and in the earth, and is associated with wisdom, smithing, mining, and crafting. Scholars dispute the size of the Norse nature spirit, the Dvergr. As Tolkien was inspired by the dwarves of Norse myths and dwarves of Germanic folklore, this word could be used to refer to the dwarfs of the fictional universe Middle-Earth (Khazad) as well, and possibly of other fantasy universes. The fu'ivla derived from Old Norse: dvergar; Old English: dweorg; Old High German: twerg.
