experimental cmavo relative clause prenex: assigns a variable to the object of the relative clause Works like ce'ai, but binds to ke'a rather than ce'u. lo broda poi ko'a ke'au brode ko'a = lo broda poi ke'a goi ko'a zo'u brode ko'a
li'ai

lo
cmavo veridical descriptor: the one(s) that really is(are) ... Terminated with ku. Under the xorlo reform, lo converts a selbri to a sumti in a rather generic way. In particular, lo broda = zo'e noi broda.
selbricu'i
lujvo x1 is/are a word/words potential for using as selbri Many people seem to use "selbri" instead of "selbricu'i" in many cases. Strictly speaking, for instance, "broda" of "lo broda" is not selbri but selbricu'i
tolkai
lujvo x1 is characterized by the polar opposite of x2 (ka) Brivla form of to'e; (ko'a tolkai lo ka broda) = (ko'a to'e broda). See dukti, norkai
tolri'a

cei
cmavo selbri variable assignment; assigns broda series pro-bridi to a selbri. Note: Directionality of assignment may be ambiguous. ca'e on the "toward" side may be used to disambiguate.
ke'oi
experimental cmavo reverses modification order of contained tanru (does not affect lujvo). Marks a "selskiski"/"military-style"/"noun-adjective" tanru, i.e. tertau come *before* seltau. This differs from co in that it does not affect the place structure of the sumti to the right; i.e. in {mi ke'oi broda brode do} (= {mi brode broda do}), both mi and do are arguments of broda. Default grouping is still left: {lo ke'oi ckule nixli cmalu melbi} resolves to {lo ke'oi (((ckule nixli) cmalu) melbi)}, which is equivalent to {lo melbi ke cmalu ke nixli ckule}. co does not (re-)reverse the order of tanru-modification; it only changes place structure. See ke'e'u.
re'au'e

tolja'e
lujvo The negation of x1 (event/state) is a result/outcome/conclusion of antecedent x2 (event/state). x1 is prevented by x2. to'e jalge. “lo nu broda cu tolja'e lo nu brode” has the same meaning as “lo nu na broda cu jalge lo nu brode”.
