y'i
experimental cmavo connective: elliptical/generic/vague Like zo'e or co'e, but for connectives. The connectives referred to may be logical or non-logical; they take the form proper for the syntax/context (probably is best implemented using post-original CLL connective system modification such as the MAD proposal or the system developed by selpa'i); in standard original CLL usage, this would be the inter-sumti connective. [Presently not allowed by morphology/phonotactic constraints. As such is the case, confer: ji'o'e.]
zai'o
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: the empty argument/value; syntactically-contextually and type-permitted maximally generic in its typing It is a pro-sumti with an empty reference set. Probably semantically maximally and generally elliptical/generic. Typing can be restricted by (possibly metalinguistic) restriction. See also: gai'o (pro-bridi; empty), mai'i (pro-sumti; universal), cei'i (pro-bridi; universal), ctaipe. Proposed by: lai .az. .e lai .krtisfranks.
zmadu
gismu rafsi: zma mau x1 exceeds/is more than x2 in property/quantity x3 (ka/ni) by amount/excess x4. Also positive (= nonmau). See also cmavo list mau, mleca, zenba, jmina, bancu, dukse, traji.
zunle
gismu rafsi: zul x1 is to the left/left-hand side of x2 which faces/in-frame-of-reference x3. Also x3 is the standard of orientation for x2. See also cmavo list zu'a, pritu, mlana, crane, trixe, farna.
xe'au
experimental cmavo mekso clausal referent bracket initializer Works with words of selma'o NOIhA. Within a mekso expression, any sequence of words/any subexpression between this word and the (immediate/very) next unmatched member of selma'o NOIhA are consolidated into (one whole and indivisible (for the sake of the clause) entity which acts as reference of the clause introduced by the same member of NOIhA, thus overriding the default attachment of NOIhA cmavo to the word immediately preceding them in a mekso expression. A member of NOIhA is considered "unmatched" if and only if the number of intervening additional uses of this word is less than or equal to the number of members of NOIhA uttered after the usage of this word being considered. The bracketed expression is considered to be a whole and single unit that can only be referenced together and in its single entirety; the bracketed expression is considered to be formal and remains unevaluated for the purposes of the reference/clause- thus, any reference to its evaluated result must be made by modifying ke'a. See also: noi'a, poi'a.
bapli
gismu rafsi: bap bai x1 [force] (ka) forces/compels event x2 to occur; x1 determines property x2 to manifest. Also constrains; requires success, unlike the physics term (better expressed by danre). See also fanta, rinju, jimte, jitro, rinka, krinu, zukte, randa, danre, cmavo list bai, marxa, tinsa, xarnu.
benji
gismu rafsi: bej be'i x1 transfers/sends/transmits x2 to receiver x3 from transmitter/origin x4 via means/medium x5. Also possibly "sharing"; no (complete) alienation from origin is implied. x5 carrier. See also muvdu, dunda, mrilu, nirna, xruti, cradi, tivni, preja, cmavo list be'i, bevri, mrilu, tcana.
cau'o'e
experimental cmavo elliptical/vague/indecisive scalar affirmer/negator; true neutral/non-committed/uninvolved scalar truthfulness/assertion Useful for when the truthfulness or falseness of a bridi is undesirable (the speaker makes no firm stance or assumption on the matter). Different from no'e in that it does not necessarily select a neutral value on a scale; it merely acknowledges that some value on the scale could be chosen/that the scale exists, but does not choose one (it is hands-off). If one does not want to accuse someone of being or doing something, but wants to talk about it, this word would be used; often can be used for "are or are not".
cinmo
gismu rafsi: cni x1 feels emotion x2 (ka) about x3. Also mood/humor (= nuncni). See also cmavo list ci'o, cumla, jilra, nelci, xendo, ckeji, cortu, jgira, kecti, kufra, manci, prami, steba, zungi, badri, burna, gleki.
ciste
gismu rafsi: ci'e x1 (mass) is a system interrelated by structure x2 among components x3 (set) displaying x4 (ka). x1 (or x3) is synergistic in x4; also network; x2 also relations, rules; x3 also elements (set completely specified); x4 systemic functions/properties. See also cmavo list ci'e, cmima, girzu, gunma, stura, tadji, munje, farvi, ganzu, judri, julne, klesi, morna, tcana.
cmene
gismu rafsi: cme me'e x1 (quoted word(s)) is a/the name/title/tag of x2 to/used-by namer/name-user x3 (person). Also: x2 is called x1 by x3 (= selcme for reordered places). See also cmavo list me'e, gismu, tcita, valsi, judri. Historically used to describe words in the Lojban morphological class allocated for use with proper nouns; this sense has been deprecated in favor of cmevla.
cmima
gismu rafsi: mim cmi x1 is a member/element of set x2; x1 belongs to group x2; x1 is amid/among/amongst group x2. x1 may be a complete or incomplete list of members; x2 is normally marked by la'i/le'i/lo'i, defining the set in terms of its common property(ies), though it may be a complete enumeration of the membership. See also ciste, porsi, jbini, girzu, gunma, klesi, cmavo list mei, kampu, lanzu, liste.
cu'au'ei
experimental cmavo mekso binary/unary operator: multinomial coefficient/binomial coefficient/choose If unary, a list (n1,...,n_r) must be supplied as input; the terms of the list may not be distinct; for appropriate values, output is ((n1 +...+ n_r)!)/((n1)! *...* (n_r)!). If binary, a single number n must be supplied for the first variable and the second variable must be a list (k1,...,k_s); for appropriate values, the output is (n!)/((k1 !) * ((n - k1)!) *...* (k_s !) * ((n - k_s)!)); note that this is not exactly the typical definition, but it allows for easier immediate usage for the binomial case (where s=1).
da'au
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: forgetful something/memory-less da Functions as da does with respect to existential quantification. Each usage acts as though the scope of all previous usages have been closed/terminated (or that all assignments to the meaning of this word have been forgotten/erased/overridden/unassigned). Even within the same given scope, multiple usages of this word can refer to different things (with or without qualification) and are (modulo qualification) completely free in their reference sets absolutely and with respect to one another; of course, they can mean the same thing, but it is not necessary. Usage within prenexes is essentially pointless if intended to be used after the same. See also: da'o, da, kau'a, kau'e, kau'i, zo'e.
di'au
experimental cmavo pro-sumti and sumyzmico: discourse-interior default it (terbri-specific) Explicitly and emphatically references the specified default value of the relevant terbri as specified/designated by the discourse; thus, its value is context-dependent and subject to specification modifications. It does not necessarily reference the value defined "officially". (zo'e, implicit or explicit, may do so as well, but the use of this word implies some degree of a more deliberate choice to follow the default specification.) When a default of the terbri is not specified by the previous discourse (nor by the discourse-exterior "official" definition of the terbri if not specification modifications have been made previously), this word is equivalent to completely general and elliptical zo'e. See also: di'oi, di'ei.
diklo
gismu rafsi: klo x1 is local to x2; x1 is confined to locus x2 within range x3; x1 is regional Indicates a specific location/value within a range; e.g. a hits b. What is the locality on b that a hits? Thus x1 is associated with a specific narrow region/interval x2 of wider space/range x3. See also cmavo list di'o, jibni, zvati, cpana, nenri, lamji, stuzi, tcila.
