experimental cmavo unary mathematical operator: length/number of components/terms of/in object/array/formal string/sequence/word/text in some alphabet/base/basis which includes each digit; number of digits/components/entries For a numerical string, the number of digits are counted. For a tuple/vector/array/matrix/tensor, the number of entries/conponents is counted. Not literally the number of symbols used, but the number of meaningful "spots" occupied; for example "(1,0)" uses five characters, but its length is just 2 (for "1" and then "0"); this is due to the fact that formal representation may vary but the amount of information conveyed must remain constant. Note that digit strings are essentially considered to be vectors in the basis of powers of the base.
fu'ivla x1 (event/state) is on Tuesday or the second day of a week x2 in system x3. lo jedlre = lo se jefydeidetri be li re. Originally entered as jednre, but that's a type-3 zi'evla based on jendu. See also detri, detke'u, jeftu; jednpa, jednci, jednvo, jednmu, jednxa, jednze.
lujvo t1=j1 is a/the horn [brass-wind/lip-reed musical instrument; default jirnytabra refers generally to the common horn (brass instrument). "..the instrument is often informally known as the French horn. However, this is technically incorrect since the instrument is not French in origin, but German. Therefore, the International Horn Society has recommended since 1971 that the instrument be simply called the horn." (wikipedia). Also natural horn (=sampu jirnytabra), vienna horn (=vin zei jirnytabra or tabrviena), mellophone (=tabrmelofono), wagner tuba (tabrvagnri). See also jirna and tabra.
fu'ivla x1 blanches/cooks/prepares food-for-eating x2 by sitting it in boiling liquid x3 for a short time-duration/interval x4 and then plunged into/placed under running liquid x5, blanched at boiling temperature x6 and pressure x7. See also: boil (=febjukpa), simmer (=febjbijukpa), poach (=febmlijukpa), court bouillon (=likrkorbojo/febmliseljukpa). Not to be confused with other definitions of blanching, like parboiling (=nalmulfebjukpa).
lujvo l1 is a regular/predictable lujvo (compound predicate word) with meaning l2 and arguments l3 built from phrase l4 and having an argument structure according to rule j1. A Lojban-specific term. The approach of jvajvo is intended to at least constrain what the x2, x3, x4... etc. of a lujvo may be, and also to draw the semantic values of those places from the semantic values of the places of the component brivla. The rationale is that the place structure of an unknown lujvo should not require memorization. This was previously known as ``dikyjvo''; a mistranslation of ``regular lujvo'', as it used the wrong sense of ``regular'' (see dikni).
lujvo c1 (quoted word(s)) is a name of c2 used by c3 that morphologically [strict] is a Lojbanic lujvo built from predicates metaphor/tanru l4 The morphology is according to Lojban grammar rules; as such, the word(s) c1 must end with vowels and in fact must exactly follow the morphology of brivla (and, moreover, lujvo; else, they would not be morphologically correct lujvo). l1 is essentially c1 modulo meaning and exact syntactic operation. The other terbri of lujvo (namely, l2 and l3) are not useful for names. See also: jvosmicme for a slight generalization, brivlasmicme for a greater generalization thereof.
lujvo x1 (agent) count-measures/evaluates x2 = m2 [quantity] as x3 = k3 = m3 [number counted] items/units of/in/pertaining to set x4 = k2, on scale x5 = m4 (si'o; default: from 0 representing nothing/no instances of the item, and by (units of) 1 for each additional occurrence if the item is quantized) with accuracy x6 = m5 (ideally should be exact/perfect). x2 is countably measurable. The scale sets the "counting [off] by units" and most countable things are counted from "0" (meaning nothing/no instances of the item in question) with each additional occurrence of the (quantized) item being represented by an addition "1". See: kamre, zilkacmre.
experimental cmavo abstractor: predicate abstractor. x1 is the predicate expressed by [bridi], using bo'a, bo'e, etc for variables. Identical in meaning to an n-ary ka, but with lambda-variables bound to bo'a/bo'e/bo'i/bo'o/bo'u (bo'ai for additional variables) instead of ce'u (which may still be used for "next place"). This is mainly for convenience, to avoid having to assign pro-sumti to ce'u variables either with goi or ce'ai. See me'ei, me'au, cei'e, ckaji, ckini
gismu rafsi: ka'e x1 is able to do/be/capable of doing/being x2 (event/state) under conditions x3 (event/state). Also: has talent; know how to; know how to use (= plika'e). (cf. stati, certu, gasnu (in the time-free potential sense), cmavo list ka'e, cmavo list nu'o, cmavo list pu'i, djuno, zifre)
gismu rafsi: kau x1 (property - ka) is common/general/universal among members of set x2 (complete set). Only fully universal sense applies; x1 must be found in all members of x2. For the non-universal sense see fadni and zilfadni. See also cafne, rirci, fadni, cnano, tcaci, lakne, cmima, simxu.
gismu x1 (object/commodity/property/event) is costly/expensive/dear to x2 by standard x3. 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 (= poskargu for unambiguous semantics). See also vamji, dirba, vajni, jdima, pleji, canja, jerna, jinga, jemna, sfasa, vecnu.
experimental cmavo mekso style converter: elementwise application of operator Prefixed to an operator/function that operates on numbers, thereby transforming it to a set operator (thus its arguments must be sets where before they were numbers), as defined in a given structure. Produces the set of all numbers that are given by some ordered pair of elements (the nth term of which belongs to the nth set specified) with the operator acting on them (per the rules of that operator). The set produced may include empty terms and/or infinity. Let "✦" represent the operator; then X_1 kei'ai ✦ X_2 boi X_3 boi X_4 = Set(x1✦x2✦x3✦x4: x_i in X_i). See also kei'au for a similar but different word.
fu'ivla x1 is a language used by x2 to express x3 (du'u, not quote) A narrower term than bangu, doesn't denote dialects. Distinction between bankle ('dialect') and lenguua ('language') can be defined by linguistic research or politics. See also tance, cusku, ve tavla, jargone, valsi, gerna, jufra, natmi, slaka
fu'ivla x1 is a specific kind of bad weather characterized by large dark rain clouds that block out most of the daylight, large, cold rain drops and an overall dark, uncomfortable and unsettling atmosphere, optionally accompanied by icy wind, such that a change in the weather conditions would be a relief to anyone present, both physically and emotionally. This is an original concept. See also manku, tcima, carvi, bratuca, brife, lenku, kufra, rivbi, dunku, tcini, cinmo, dilnu.
fu'ivla x1 (event/state) is in the eighth month/August of a year x2 in system x3. lo masnbi = lo se ma'irdetri be li bi. See also detri, detke'u, masti; masnpa, masnre, masnci, masnvo, masnmu, masnxa, masnze, masnso, masndau, masnfei, masngai, masnjau, masnrei or masnxei, masnvai.
fu'ivla x1 (event/state) is in the third month/March of a year x2 in system x3. lo masnci = lo se ma'irdetri be li ci. See also ci, detri, detke'u, masti; masnpa, masnre, masnvo, masnmu, masnxa, masnze, masnbi, masnso, masndau, masnfei, masngai, masnjau, masnrei or masnxei, masnvai.
