Not everything that you say in Lojban should be rational.
fu'ivla x1 defines x2 (nu/du'u) to be true / to happen // x2 is true because x1 says so or thinks so. Based on ca'e, gasnu. Near-synonym with jetrinsku
lujvo x1 makes x2 (du'u) true by expressing it (performative act); x2 is true because x1 claims it to be so See also ca'e, ca'engau.
experimental cmavo evidential: by definition... / essentialistically... Differs from ca'e, in that rather than defining something to be true, this gives an opinion on an existing definition or essential characteristic. See kairpau.
gismu rafsi: ca'e x1 [agent] shoves/pushes x2 at locus x3. Move by pushing/shoving (= ca'ermuvgau). (cf. danre for non-agentive force, lacpu)
experimental cmavo define following selbri with sentence or tu'e...tu'u clause Usage: The selbri after cei'e is defined by the associated sentence or tu'e...tu'u clause. bo'a, bo'e, bo'i, bo'o, and bo'u represent places x1 through x5 within its place structure. (Use bo'ai for more places if needed, or ce'u for "next place"). // cei'e is meant to be used to define new words (implicit ca'e) but may be modified by evidentials to express an assertion (ju'a) or opinion (pe'i) on a meaning instead. Alternatively, smuni and ka'ei may be used. // See cei, goi, goi'e
experimental cmavo mekso operator: finite result set derived from/on set A with/due to operator/function B under ordering of application C Equivalent to: lo'i li zy du ca'e li pe'o se'au mau'au B zai'ai vei ma'o xy boi ny ve'o boi tau sy boi C ku poi ke'a cmaci xanri zi'e poi ke'a mleca li ci'i zo'u tau sy klesi A. Acts on an operator/function (b) and produces all finite results of that operator being used on any allowable number of elements of the set A without repetition within any given application. The result must be defined (and finite, obviously). Application of the operator on nothing (the elements of the empty set) is generically allowed and follows convention (for example, an empty sum may evaluate to 0). Differs from kei'ai. Use mau'au and zai'ai for quoting B. C will be specified explicitly (possibly elsewhere) and/or via zoi'ai.
