xa'i
experimental cmavo discursive: imagining/roleplaying - not imagining/"out of character / in real life" Denotes imaginary/roleplaying actions and events. Serves much the same purpose as *star-quotes* or the /me function [= xa'i mi] would in online communities. Cf. da'i, xanri, xarpei
xe'enai
cmavo-compound digit/number: specific referent; modifies quantifier to indicate that there are particular referents that fulfill the predicate (xe'e pa prenu) = "any one person / one non-specific person", (xe'enai pa prenu) = "one specific person". See itca, steci, su'anai
xenru
gismu rafsi: xer xe'u x1 regrets/rues (abstraction) x2; x1 is regretful/rueful/sorry/[remorseful] about x2. Also: x1 feels remorse about x2 (= zugyxe'u). (cf. cmavo list u'u, zungi)
xi'i
experimental cmavo extent of truth Proposed here: http://balance.wiw.org/~jkominek/lojban/9511/msg00430.html . See xu'au for a synonymous word (other than tentatively and temporarily belonging to a different selma'o) that is proposed in order to avoid multiple definitions for "xi'i".
xo'ai
experimental cmavo conversion: move 5th place to 1st position. Everything else stays in the same order. Before: x1 x2 x3 x4 x5, after: x5 x1 x2 x3 x4. Has the same effect as "xe ve te se". Proposed rafsi: -xoz-
xo'e
experimental cmavo elliptical/unspecified number. See also no'o, tu'o, xo, zo'e, co'e, and do'e.
xunai
cmavo-compound discursive: false-true question. Example: xunai do djuno - 'Don't you know?'. Only negates the question rhetorically, and not the expected answer; go'i/ja'a/je'u still means "Yes, I know".
xy'y
experimental cmavo naturalistic interjection: in thought/contemplation Differs from y in that it doesn't imply hesitation or a desire to say anything after. The first syllable may be lengthened as desired. Has a mandatory pause after. See pensi.
zai'a
experimental cmavo attitudinal modifier: observed emotion; preceding attitudinal is observed on listener Replaces recent questionable usage of dai, which should be reserved for situations in which the speaker also feels the emotion. ui nai zai'a - I see you are unhappy. (Note that observation is not limited to visual)
ze'ai
experimental cmavo tense interval modifier: increasingly...; incrementative. Tagged sumti, if present, indicates amount of increase (lo te zenba) Alternate form: zei'a. See zenba. Opposite of dei'a

experimental cmavo nonce-word indicator; indicates previous word is nonce-creation and may be nonstandard Equivalent to za'e but in selma'o UI. See also za'e, pe'a, xo'o
zo'ei
experimental cmavo Something associated with; equivalent to ''zo'e pe'' or "lo co'e be". There are a lot of cases where people use "tu'a" where they actually mean zo'ei; once I noticed the usefulness of such a word to elide whole chunks of sentences, I started wanting it all the time. -camgusmis
zoi'ai'e
experimental cmavo empty string/text/word More or less equivalent to {lu li'u}, but is useful for when that construct would not be grammatical or practical; it also be used when a single word is necessary, etc. Commonly represented by epsilon or lambda. See also: zai'e.
