pavyfu'ivla
lujvo x1=v1=f1 is a stage 1 fu'ivla meaning x2=v2, based on word x3=f2 in language x4. 'stage 1 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 Lojban quote including text of any language (see example) as the concept doesn't make much sense for other languages. See also relfu'ivla - 'stage 2 fu'ivla', cibyfu'ivla - 'stage 3 fu'ivla' and vonfu'ivla - 'stage 4 fu'ivla'
pavysmi
lujvo x1 is the one(-like) element/multiplicative identity of structure/ring x2; often is denoted by ' 1_R ' or ' I_R ' or by (when context is obvious) '1' or 'I', for structure/ring R (given by x2). 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. The n×n identity matrix over a given ring is an example of one such element. See also: nonsmi
pesai
cmavo-compound restrictive relative phrase marker: semi-permanently associated to; will remain associated unless something breaks that relation Proposed as a variation of po with less semantic-boundary difficulties, while freeing up po for reassignment in dialects/forks. Legal ownership is a possible relation; it could also mean, say, the chair assigned to you in an office, which will remain 'your' chair until reassigned, where mere pe could just mean the one you're sitting on. do'esai could be a variation to associate a bridi or the subject of the bridi, e.g. 'ti stizu do'esai mi'. See pecai, pe, ponse, po'a
pluta
gismu rafsi: lut lu'a x1 is a route/path/way/course/track to x2 from x3 via/defined by points including x4 (set). A route merely connects origin/destination, but need not be improved in any way; (x4 is a set of points at least sufficient to constrain the route relevantly). (cf. litru, naxle, tcana, dargu, klaji, ve klama; tadji, zukte for means to a goal, klama, pagre)
prali
gismu rafsi: pal x1 is a profit/gain/benefit/advantage to x2 accruing/resulting from activity/process x3. Also (fe) x2 profits from x3 (= selterprali for reordered places); 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 (= selposprali for unambiguous semantics). See also vecnu, cnemu, pleji, jinga, canja, sfasa, jerna, jdima, dunda, zivle.

lujvo x1=c1 is a bow/crossbow/ballista for shooting ammunition x2=c2 [arrow/quarrel/crossbow bolt] by flexing and releasing bow/prod/lath x3=g1 of material x6=g3, to whose two ends are tied bow string x4=g2=s1 of material x5=s2. To be clear, the launch mechanism is as follows: x4 is pulled so as to bend x3, while x2 is placed on x4, and x4 is released, causing x3 to snap back into its normal shape, launching x2 as it does so.
spuda
gismu rafsi: spu x1 answers/replies to/responds to person/object/event/situation/stimulus x2 with response x3. x3 also answer/reply. If x2 is a person/object, it will usually require "tu'a" indicating that the reply/response is to that person/object doing something. "tu'a" may not be needed if the person/object itself is the stimulus, rather than something it is doing. See also cusku, preti, nabmi, danfu, frati, cpedu.

toi'e
experimental cmavo start UI-applicative metalinguistic UI-parenthetical Presently (without this word), there is no "official" way to apply a UI cmavo to another (instead, they merely express simultaneous emotions pertaining to the relevant construct). This word begins a parenthetical which can contain UI cmavo and applies these cmavo as a string of UI to the immediately previous UI cmavo metalinguistically (as if the external UI is/are any other type of word which can be acted upon by UI). An omitted UI (external or internal) in this case is equivalent to ge'e. Since the produced parenthetical functions as UI, nested or subsequent such parentheticals operate on it as it operates on external UI cmavo. For details on grouping and application, see koi'e. See also: toi'o.
valrxazdomru
fu'ivla x1 is a xazdmru word Note: for obvious reasons, zo will probably not work here. You probably want zoi or zo'oi to quote x1. ¶ A xazdmru word is a putative zi'evla that will turn into a lujvo-form if the syllabic consonants are filled in with y, thus xaz,dm,ru → xazdymru (xazdo zei mruli). No words of these shapes have ever been defined or used in the corpus. These shapes are banned following a proposal and can't be entered into jbovlaste. See vlaturge'a, valslinku'i, valrtosmabru
