cirko
gismu rafsi: cri x1 loses person/thing x2 at/near x3; x1 loses property/feature x2 in conditions/situation x3. x2 may be a specific object, a commodity (mass), an event (rare for cirko), or a property; pedantically, for objects/commodities, this is sumti-raising from ownership of the object/commodity (= po'ecri, posyselcri for unambiguous semantics). See also facki, ralte, sisku, claxu, jinga, pleji, canja, sfasa, dapma, binra, mipri.

crakemsazycimde
lujvo ci1=cr1 is a heads-up display (HUD) for user s1 of machine/system s2 based on principle ci3. It is shown/visible in front of cr2, as seen from the user's viewpoint. A very general sense of “heads-up display” is used here; it is not limited to one single application. For example, it could be used to refer to both the heads-up display of modern aircraft as well as the heads-up display in computing and video games. Cf. crane, sazycimde.
da'au
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: forgetful something/memory-less da Functions as da does with respect to existential quantification. Each usage acts as though the scope of all previous usages have been closed/terminated (or that all assignments to the meaning of this word have been forgotten/erased/overridden/unassigned). Even within the same given scope, multiple usages of this word can refer to different things (with or without qualification) and are (modulo qualification) completely free in their reference sets absolutely and with respect to one another; of course, they can mean the same thing, but it is not necessary. Usage within prenexes is essentially pointless if intended to be used after the same. See also: da'o, da, kau'a, kau'e, kau'i, zo'e.
datnrzbaselpla
fu'ivla x1 is a makefile designed to produce output files / data / event x2 from rules x3. Doesn't refer only the makefiles for GNU make, but also to any such similar files intended to automate the building process. Technically and usually, makefiles just run commands which in turn are what create the output, but the x2 allows us to skip the extra verbosity by specifying the output data directly. If output data is irrelevant, i.e. the makefile runs commands which have no real output, then an event can be used to specify the result of the makefile. See also zbaplrjavni for how to fill the x3.
detke'u
lujvo The date [day,week,month,year] x1=d1=k1 is recurrence/repetition of the date [day,week,month,year] of the first event x2=d2, for the x3=k3'rd time, in system x3. detri zei krefu. krefu2 corresponds to the date of the first event, but the place is omitted for simplicity. x4 may indicate the system of recurrence: a day of the week/month; a day/month of the year (anniversary); a year of the century etc. ex.) li renopavo pi'e pano pi'e re detke'u lo nu la gandis noi banli cu jbena kei li pavomu lo pa nanca be fi la gregoris (October 2 of 2014 is Mahatma Gandhi's 145th birthday counted by year of Gregorian calendar.)
dikca
gismu rafsi: dic x1 is electricity [electric charge or current] in/on x2 of polarity/quantity x3 (def. negative). (x3, a quantifier, can be expressed as a simple polarity using the numerals for positive and negative ma'u and ni'u); (explicitly) negative (= dutydikca), positive (= mardikca); current (= selmuvdikca, muvdikca; again default negative/electron current), charge (= klodikca, stadikca). See also lindi, xampo, flecu, maksi, tcana.
dirba
gismu rafsi: dib x1 is dear/precious/darling to x2; x1 is emotionally valued by x2. x1 may be a specific object, a commodity (mass), an event, or a property; pedantically, for objects/commodities, this is sumti-raising from ownership of the object/commodity (= posydirba for unambiguous semantics). See also tcika, kargu, vamji, vajni, pleji, jadni, jemna.
disrmuzo
fu'ivla x1 is a mosasaur [member of family Mosasauridae] of subtaxon/type/genus/species/variety/breed x2. Categorizer rafsi "dis" is meant (and experimentally proposed) to belong to the experimental gismu dinso; as such, it may not be the most elucidating; however, it is technically not essential to the interpretation of the lexeme. Technically, a extinct family of reptile order Squamata (which is extant), but dinso applies all the same (unlike reksa). See also: dinso, respa, reskuamata, ikfio, plesio, dinsauru, reksa, ketslau.

funtiio
fu'ivla x1 (plural of ordered pairs) is an exhaustive set (possibly infinite) of inputs/outputs defining a unary function which yields result x3 when given input x2; x1(x2) = x3 "f(x) = z" == "fy funtiio xy fi zy". "lo ro se zilbri be lo ka ce'u sumji ce'u li pa" is a way to extract the input/output set of the relation "f(x) = x−1", so that you can use it as funtiio's x1. Using a la-name for referring to a function is also an option, for example "la .fankcyn. cu funtiio li re li ci". See also fancu, fancuka.
glevli
lujvo x1=v1=g1 has the power to bring about sexual activity/event x2=v2 with x3=g2 under conditions x4=v3; x1 is sexually powerful in aspect x2 Mutual symmetry between g1 and g2 is partially lost since only g1 is necessarily endowed with sexual power (even though the act of sex is mutually symmetric between them). Generalized sexual power (as in: self-empowerment) should have x3 erased or gleborsezvli; this word implies have sexual power over another (upon/over whom some sort of sexual power may be exercised).

i'au
experimental cmavo reset bridi-level to zero Auto-inserts all necessary terminators to reset to the top-level bridi of the sentence (i.e. everything that i would insert except the last vau). This is useful if you have opened multiple NU/NOI subclauses, and just want to close them all to add more sumti, terms, or a xoi clause to the main bridi without using a bunch of terminators. // May also be used with UI-cmavo. UI-cmavo placed immediately after i'au would scope over the entire sentence. This is useful for attaching attitudinals as afterthoughts, without having to close the entire sentence manually with the right number of vaus. See ji'au, fu'e, fu'o.
