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.
gismu rafsi: kla x1 comes/goes to destination x2 from origin x3 via route x4 using means/vehicle x5. Also travels, journeys, moves, leaves to ... from ...; x1 is a traveller; (x4 as a set includes points at least sufficient to constrain the route relevantly). See also cadzu, bajra, marce, vofli, litru, muvdu, cpare, cmavo list ka'a, pluta, bevri, farlu, limna, vitke.
experimental cmavo the specific referent of [following sumti] defined/specified by the grammar The grammar in question can itself be specified by metalinguistic tags that apply to the utterance; if not explicitly specified, then a cultural assumption/default is applied. This word is useful for distinguishing between, for example, differentiating between something that the speaker happens to call "PEMDAS" and the order of operations PEMDAS (which, presumably, could be included in the grammar as a special word that influences mekso interpretation); likewise for a font that happens to be called ".mekrot." ("math blackboard bold") and the one that definitely refers to the set of characters used for, among other purposes, set notation.
gismu rafsi: li'e x1 precedes/leads x2 in sequence x3; x1 is former/preceding/previous; x2 is latter/following. Also x1 before, forerunner; leading, as in 'leading indicators'; x2 after, trailing (= selyli'e for reordered places). See also cmavo list li'e, balvi, ralju, rebla, purci for time sequence, jersi, porsi, jatna, farna.
experimental cmavo marks word/construct as being optional, i.e. the bridi would still be both grammatical AND reflect the speakers opinion/intention would the marked construct be left out coi fu'e li'oi la fu'o selpa'i would semantically expand to coi la selpa'i and coi selpa'i meaning that both a person named selpa'i and a beloved one is being greeted (both being the same person).
experimental cmavo x1 is the PA-th date/time of unit x2 (si'o) counting from x3 (default: now) by calendar x4 x3 is the reference point in time (PA = no). The splicing method depends on x4. For example, at 14:03 on 2014-11-14, the 0th day (x2 = lo si'o djedi) from now is 11-14, the 0th century from now is the 21st century, the 0th month (x2 = lo si'o masti) is November, the 0th afternoon is this afternoon (x2 = lo si'o donri), the 0th night (x2 = lo si'o nicte) refers to nothing (because this time-point is not in night).
gismu rafsi: muk mu'i x1 (action/event/state) motivates/is a motive/incentive for action/event x2, per volition of x3. Also; x3 is motivated to bring about result/goal/objective x2 by x1 (= termu'i for reordered places); (note that 'under conditions' BAI may apply and be appropriately added to the main predicate level or within the x2 action level). (cf. cmavo list mu'i, nibli, te zukte - generally better for 'goal', se jalge, krinu, rinka, ciksi, djica, xlura)
lujvo x1 (scalar-valued) is the magnitude of the vector of the differintegral (with respect to time) of order x2 of the displacement of x3 (object/point) relative to x4 (object/point/frame of reference; contextless default: origin) in coordinate system/frame of reference/as measured by x5 according to definition/standard/(meta)physics x6, where the differintegral is taken with starting point x7, in metric/by definition x8 This word uses three experimental gismu (with one experimental short cmavo for one of these): nicfa (-nif-), salri, cusna.
experimental cmavo mekso operator: part of number/projection (one sense); the X2 part of X1 X1 can be a tensor, in which case the operator applies entry-wise; X1 can be a function, in which case the operator applies pointwise. It extracts the part of the number that belongs to the structure X2 united with the singleton 0. X2 = R implies "real part"; X2 = i*R implies "imaginary part"; X2 = R+ implies "positive part"; X2 = R- implies "negatige part". If X1 has no explicit value/projection in/along X2, then the output is 0. If 0 is X1 or X2, then the output is 0. X1 should really be a structure, not just a set.
gismu rafsi: pes pei x1 thinks/considers/cogitates/reasons/is pensive about/reflects upon subject/concept x2. Also: x1 is thoughtful (one sense); x2 is mental (one sense)/intellectual (one sense) (= selpei). See also cmavo list pe'i, jijnu, menli, morji, sidbo, jinvi, se nabmi, minra, lanli, besna, saske, skami.
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
experimental cmavo mathematical ternary operator: prime-generating function The a-th prime according to ordering rules b in ring c; contextless default for c is the standard/typical ring of integers (Z,+,*); contextless default for b is the standard typical ordering of the ring, which is the 'normal' absolute value (signless difference/distance with/from 0) for the standard ring (Z,+,*); thus, it will usually operate as an unary operator. The function must be defined over the set of strictly positive integers in/for the first operand; generalizations may be possible. Ignores units and 0. It begins counting at 1 [in/for the first operand]; under contextless default conditions, the outputs increase strictly monotonically with respect to increase in the first input [a], starting with the least prime in (Z,+,*), namely 2. Usually denoted "p_i" or "Prime" in the literature.
gismu rafsi: pli x1 uses/employs x2 [tool, apparatus, machine, agent, acting entity, material] for purpose x3. Also utilize; x2 is useful/used productively by x1 to do x3 (= selpli for reordered places); hire/employ (= le'ipli, lejyplicu'a). (cf. tutci, cabra, minji, gasnu, zukte for x2, cmavo list pi'o, sazri, jibri)
gismu rafsi: rik ri'a x1 (event/state) effects/physically causes effect x2 (event/state) under conditions x3. x1 is a material condition for x2; x1 gives rise to x2. See also gasnu, krinu, nibli, te zukte, se jalge, bapli, jitro, cmavo list ri'a, mukti, ciksi, xruti.
gismu rafsi: tec te'i x1 (ka) is specific/particular/specialized/[special]/a defining property of x2 among x3 (set). [x2 are members/individuals of a subset of x3; object whose association is specific/defining of a subset or individuals (= tecra'a, also cf. cmavo list po'e, [x2 is also special to x1]); also: especially/strongly/specifically associated]; (x3 is completely specified set)]; See also srana, se ponse, ckini, tcila, tutra.
gismu x1 [hours, minutes, seconds] is the time/hour of state/event x2 on day x3 at location x4. Also o'clock, time-of-day. (time units in x1 are specified as numbers separated by pi'e or are unit values massified with joi); See also cmavo list ti'u, cacra, cerni, detri, donri, djedi, junla, nicte, mentu, snidu, temci, vanci, dirba, mokca.
