experimental cmavo gafyzmico: Reset all default specifications of immediately previous word to official definition specifications hereinafter (permanently) Restores all default specifications in the (terbri) structure of immediately previously uttered word so that implicit/omitted zo'e and di'au that may fill the terbri of that word are predefined/specific in reference and do indeed necessarily agree with the default setting explicitly specified in the discourse-external/“official” definition of the word. The terbri are not filled by this word. Usage is only meaningful for a brivla with at least one terbri (regardless of being explicitly filled or otherwise). In a tanru or other complicated construct, only the most recent word undergoes this terbri default restoration (not every term in the construct). A selbri converted to a sumti by gadri has the x1 terbri filled for the purposes of this word, but the default setting of that terbri is so restored all the same; likewise is the case for terbri accessed by be or bei; seltau in the main level of a sumti are filled by the gadri as well for the purposes of this word. Affects all future uses of the word (permanent), until the end of the text/conversation or explicitly undone in some manner. See also: doi'a, de'au, zmico.
de'au
experimental cmavo gafyzmico: Cancellation (permanent) of all defaults in immediately previous word Cancels/overrides/ignores/"kills" all defaults (default specifications) in the (terbri) structure of immediately previously uttered word so that implicit/omitted zo'e and di'au that may fill the terbri of that word are general in potential reference (modulo context) and do not necessarily agree with the default setting explicitly specified in the discourse-exterior/“official” definition of the word. The terbri are not filled by this word. Usage is only meaningful for a brivla with at least one terbri (regardless of being explicitly filled or otherwise). In a tanru or other complicated construct, only the most recent word undergoes this terbri default override (not every term in the construct). A selbri converted to a sumti by gadri has the x1 terbri filled for the purposes of this word, but the default setting of that terbri is so overridden all the same; likewise is the case for terbri accessed by be or bei; seltau in the main level of a sumti are filled by the gadri as well for the purposes of this word. Affects all future uses of the word (permanent), until the end of the text/conversation or explicitly undone in some manner. See also: dau'a, de'oi, zmico.
dekpu
gismu x1 is x2 (default 1) local volume unit(s) [non-metric; e.g. bushel], standard x3, x4 subunits. Gallon (= likydekpu), quart (= likseldekpu), barrel (wet = likybradekpu, dry = sudbradekpu), bushel (= sudydekpu), peck (= sudyseldekpu), cupful (= kabrydekpu), tablespoon (= mucydekpu); teaspoon (= mucyxeldekpu); (all of these lujvo may need gic- to distinguish the English measurement system in contrasting with some local system; the English system is otherwise presumed to be the default non-metric system). (additional subunit places may be added as x5, x6, ...); See also canlu, litce, rupnu, fepni, gutci, minli, merli, bunda, kramu.
digno
experimental gismu x1 is aligned diagonally along/between nonadjacent vertices x2 as in polytope x3; x1 is a diagonal line segment/linear manifold of lower dimension as viewed in frame of reference x3; x1 is crooked (one sense), skew (one sense, see notes), off-kilter (one sense), away from center/off-center, non-orthogonal/not perpendicular nor parallel, at an angle, perhaps non-vertical and non-horizontal, diagonal to x2 in figure/coordinate system x3. Not for use in: entries of tensors/matrices (confer: daigno), certain geometric meanings (such as with Cartesian products), etc. Only for purely 'visual' geometric objects/figures/frames. The polytope in question need not actually be 'drawn'; an oriented frame of reference naturally 'projects' a polytopic sense onto all objects. x1 can be any linear manifold of lower dimension than the space in which it is embedded (defined by x3). The skewness is not relative to another linear manifold in some higher-dimensional space (the usual definition of "skew" in geometry) - it is simply a skewness (in a layperson sense) relative to points in a figure or axis in a coordinate system. Proposed by Gleki.
gu'au'i
experimental cmavo mekso operator, variable arity - algebraic structure order of X1; OR: order of/(size of) period of element X1 in algebraic structure X2 under operator/of type X3 If applied to an algebraic structure (such as a group) it gives the order thereof (which, for a group, is the cardinality of the underlying set). If applied to an element of an algebraic structure, one has the options to specify the structure in which its order is being considered and/or the operator with respect to which its order is being considered (for example, in a given ring, an elements additive order is usually not its multiplicative order), although either of these made remain vague and be inferred from context; order is the smallest non-negative number of applications of the operator needed to be applied (in composition) to the original element in order for it to result in the identity element of the structure (thus, order is not always finite or even defined). See also: mau'au, cu'a.
gugle
experimental gismu x1 searches network or collection of information/data/facts, etc. (especially the Internet) for information on topic/quote x2 using service/tool/search resource/function x3 provided by (host, company, etc.) x4 with accessed information sources (websites, network, documents, books, etc.) x5. x3 is a search engine that provides information/resource/output on topic/query x2 by way of organized and (semi-)automated/quick information search through many providers/sources of information including x5, with search service provided by x4 and provided to/used by/accessible to (potential or actual) user x1 (who does not actually perform the initial search/sorting/recruiting of information). x4 is a search engine service provider able to present search results via service/tool x3. Key word search, academic search, picture search, video search, map search, etc. can be expressed by x3; the algorithm and other means of searching through, organizing and ranking, and presenting the massive amount of information (provided by x5) may likewise be expressed by x3 (in brief). The creation and/or use of this word does not endorse Google or any other search engine service provider. Proposed short rafsi form: –gul–. See also: valfa
kanpe
experimental gismu x1 expects/looks for the occurence of x2 (event), expected likelihood x3 (0-1, default {li} {so'a} i.e. near 1); x1 subjectively evaluates the likelihood of x2 (event) to be x3. The value of x3 is a subjective estimate of likeliness according to x1, and is the basic determinant of whether kanpe means something like "hope" or "wish" or "expect", although kanpe never carries the connotation of desire; for that connotation see pacna. kanpe with x3 not very close to 1 has no simple equivalent in English, but for objects/states with negligible expectation it is something like "wishing"; if the state is plausibly likely, it is something like "hoping". In both cases, though, the English implication of emotional desire is not present. The value will usually be expressed using inexact numbers ("li piso'u" to "li piro"); not-necessarily desirous wish, not necessarily desirous hope. See also ba'a, djica, pacna, lakne, cunso.
kei'au
experimental cmavo mekso operator: finite result set derived from/on set A with/due to operator/function B under ordering of application C Equivalent to: lo'i li zy du ca'e li pe'o se'au mau'au B zai'ai vei ma'o xy boi ny ve'o boi tau sy boi C ku poi ke'a cmaci xanri zi'e poi ke'a mleca li ci'i zo'u tau sy klesi A. Acts on an operator/function (b) and produces all finite results of that operator being used on any allowable number of elements of the set A without repetition within any given application. The result must be defined (and finite, obviously). Application of the operator on nothing (the elements of the empty set) is generically allowed and follows convention (for example, an empty sum may evaluate to 0). Differs from kei'ai. Use mau'au and zai'ai for quoting B. C will be specified explicitly (possibly elsewhere) and/or via zoi'ai.
masnre
fu'ivla x1 (event/state) is in the second month/February of a year x2 in system x3. lo masnre = lo se ma'irdetri be li re. The Stage-4 fu'ivla form should be maslre, but it is avoided for easiness of pronunciation. See also detri, detke'u, masti; masnpa, masnci, masnvo, masnmu, masnxa, masnze, masnbi, masnso, masndau, masnfei, masngai, masnjau, masnrei or masnxei, masnvai.
masnrei
fu'ivla x1 (event/state) is in the fourteenth month/Duodecimber of a year x2 in system x3. The same meaning as masnxei. The Stage-4 fu'ivla form should be maslrei, but it is avoided for easiness of pronunciation. lo masnrei = lo se ma'irdetri be li rei. See also detri, detke'u, masti; masnpa, masnre, masnci, masnvo, masnmu, masnxa, masnze, masnbi, masnso, masndau, masnfei, masngai, masnjau, masnvai.
nulpa'a
lujvo p1 expects/looks for the occurence of p2 (event), expected likelihood p3 (0-1); p1 subjectively evaluates the likelihood of p2 (event) to be p3. The value of x3 is a subjective estimate of likeliness according to x1, and is the basic determinant of whether nulpa'a means something like "hope" or "wish" or "expect", although nulpa'a never carries the connotation of desire; for that connotation see pacna. nulpa'a with x3 not very close to 1 has no simple equivalent in English, but for objects/states with negligible expectation it is something like "wishing"; if the state is plausibly likely, it is something like "hoping". In both cases, though, the English implication of emotional desire is not present. The value will usually be expressed using inexact numbers ("li piso'u" to "li piro"); not-necessarily desirous wish, not necessarily desirous hope. See also ba'a, djica, pacna, lakne, cunso.
terjonle'u
lujvo x1 (letteral: la'e zo BY/word-bu) is a hyphen/joining letter(al) in language x2 with function in/context of use/with rules for use/with properties x3, joining prefixed unit/lexeme/morpheme/string x4 (quote) to postfixed unit/lexeme/morpheme/string x5 (quote) in construct (full word) x6 (quote) x1 joins words/morphemes/particles into a single cohesive, grammatical unit. x4 and x5 may be improper quotes. In English, "-" is such a hyphen letteral; in Lojban, ybu, ry, ny, and ly are such hyphen letterals (arguably, as is y'y). The fact that the letteral is used to join words is implicit and this function therefore need not be specified in x3 in most cases.
xau'o'o
experimental cmavo mekso convention cancellation This word is followed by an evaluated li clause (yielding specifically a number n, which probably is a non-negative integer, or a set thereof (the elements of which will also be denoted by simply n, for simplicity) ). It repeals the nth most recent/last convention (counting backward) for mekso/mathematical expressions defined by xau'e'o. In order to repeal all such conventions (returning to the conventions specified by some grammar collection), the set should include all integers less than or equal to some sufficiently large integer (which might be ro); ro denotes the first rule defined (the last rule counting backward from the most recent)- it does not reference "all rules defined"; the most recent rule is denoted by pa. Any named body/ordered collection of rules (such as ".pemas.") is treated as being only one rule for the purposes of such counting.
banvoksle
lujvo s1 (phone/speech sounds; specifically is linguistic and vocal) is a phoneme in/of segment of utterance/speech stream s2=v1 in language b1 of speaker v2=b2 in order to communicate/express b3 (si'o/du'u; not quote(?)), produced with body-parts/tools x6 at loci/in position/manner (of articulation) x7 Must be vocal. x2 is a recognized/represented by (belongs to equivalence class of) phoneme x1. Contrast with: bancocysle (which is nonvocal). Recognition of a phoneme as linguistically distinct is language-dependent; b1 is a language which includes/recognizes said phoneme (and which realizes/recognizes/categorizes/divides phones s2 into the equivalence class of that phoneme). x6 and x7 are not predictable from the veljvo.
cibyfu'ivla
lujvo x1=v1=f1 is a stage 3 fu'ivla meaning x2=v2, based on word x3=f2 in language x4. 'stage 3 fu'ivla' is a term specific to Lojban and described in 'The Complete Lojban Language', chapter 4, section 7. The definition is similar to that of fu'ivla, but with the x3 place of fu'ivla omitted. x1 is assumed to be a word in Lojban as the concept doesn't make much sense for other languages. See also pavyfu'ivla - 'stage 1 fu'ivla', relfu'ivla - 'stage 2 fu'ivla' and vonfu'ivla - 'stage 4 fu'ivla'
cinse
gismu rafsi: cin x1 in activity/state x2 exhibits sexuality/gender/sexual orientation x3 (ka) by standard x4. Also: x1 courts/flirts; x3 could be a ka , ka , or ka , etc.; (adjective:) x1 is sexual/sexy; x1 is flirted with/courted by x2 (= cinfriti, cinjikca). See also gletu, pinji, plibu, vibna, vlagi.
