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
brivo
experimental gismu x1 is a predicate word defined as such by its word shape, signifying relation x2 (n-ary property) in language x3 In Lojban, this encompasses gismu + lujvo + zi'evla, but excludes pro-bridi, which are cmavo.
ca'au

cedra
gismu x1 is an era/epoch/age characterized by x2 (event/property/interval/idea). (x2 interval should be the defining boundaries; if merely a characterizing period, the nature of the interval should be expressed in an abstract bridi, or the interval should be marked with tu'a; x2 may also be characteristic object(s) or practices of the era, if marked with tu'a); See also ranji, temci, citsi.
kai'ei
experimental cmavo abstractor: x1 (x2, ...) are such that they satisfy [bridi], using bo'a/bo'e/etc for variables kai'ei is to kai'u what ka'ei is to ka. Uses bo'a/bo'e/bo'i/bo'o/bo'u (bo'ai for more variables) instead of ce'u (which may still be used for "next place").
lu'au
experimental cmavo Bridi to text conversion Essentially equivalent to se in the context of a se du'u. Inverse of du'au; however note that this is not single-valued, while du'au (provided context) is single-valued. Hence "lu'au du'au" is a useful idiom for constructing a text which has the same basic meaning as another text but is not necessarily the same text.
