xoi
experimental cmavo Right-scoping adverbial clause: encloses a bridi and turns it into an adverbial term; the antecedent (ke'a) of the enclosed bridi stands for the outer bridi {lo su'u no'a ku} (the bridi in which this xoi term appears), including all the other adverbial terms (tags...) within this bridi located on the right of this xoi term (rightward scope). Terminator: se'u
xoi'u
experimental cmavo non-logical connective (mekso set operator): regardless Primary motivation is to allow for an analog of .u using non-logical connectives of the form of set operators (in the same analogy that related set intersection to logical AND). .krtisfranks. is not sure that this word even fulfills a heretofore unsatisfied logical role, let alone is necessary or practically useful/desirable.
y
cmavo hesitation noise; maintains the floor while speaker decides what to say next. Note: completely invisible to grammar (except in the cluster ybu), and thus can't even be quoted by zo. Use "lo depsna" instead if you wish to refer to the "word" y itself. See denpa, sance
za'ai
experimental cmavo time tense distance: an unspecified distance in time Used to express a time distance without specifying any subjective notion about its size. May typically be used in a question when the subjective notion is not known. See also za, zi, zu, ze'ai
zei'oi
experimental cmavo end rafsi-converting quote: terminates ZEIhEI quote Elidable terminator (rarely elidable). Ends ZEIhEI quotes. See also: zei'ei, zei'ei'au. Treats quoted utterance as a rafsi; in order to make it end a lujvo (or act on its own as a brivla), follow it with co'e (wherein the the quote is treated as a single word followed by zei).
zi'ai
experimental cmavo jargon word indicator; indicates previous word is a jargon word Jargon words are to have a single, defined, specialized meaning within one particular narrow context (e.g. a game, field of study, or industry), but may also be assigned to other meanings in other contexts. Proposed rafsi: -zam- (technically rafsi for zai'e; this rafsi is always placed *before* the modified morpheme(s)) Forethought variant: zai'e
cai'e
experimental cmavo strong scalar intensifier: extremely... rei'e:ru'e:milxe ; noi'e:na'oi:cnano ; sai'e:sai:mutce ; cai'e:cai:tcetce. See http://mw.lojban.org/papri/zipcpi:_scalar_modifiers
ce'ai
experimental cmavo lambda variable prenex; marks the end of introduction of lambda-scope variables. Cf. zo'u. In effect this word is used as a shortcut around verbose repeated assignment in a ka prenex: lo ka ce'u goi ko'a ce'u goi ko'e ... zo'u ... is the same as lo ka ko'a ko'e ... ce'ai ... In either form this style can be used to avoid subscripting and to disambiguate nested ka, ni, etc.
ckaji
gismu rafsi: kai x1 has/is characterized by property/feature/trait/aspect/dimension x2 (ka); x2 is manifest in x1. Manifested/property/quality/trait/feature/aspect (= selkai). See also: cmavo list kai, ka; tcaci, tcini. Need not be a defining property (which is what "characterize" means in English).
cusku
gismu rafsi: cus sku x1 (agent) expresses/says x2 (sedu'u/text/lu'e concept) for audience x3 via expressive medium x4. Also says. See also bacru, tavla, casnu, spuda, cmavo list cu'u, bangu, dapma, jufra, pinka.
dai'o
experimental cmavo discursive & gafyzmico: reset/restore all defaults (permanently) to discourse-exterior specification; cancel all following discourse-interior default assignments Any modification made to the default value of all terbri is hereby cancelled and the definitions of all words (with respect to default specifications for terbri), as they explicitly appear in official Lojban word lists and other resources, is hereby used. Permanent until future alterations (with respect to terbri default specifications) is explicitly made. See also: do'ai, zmico, gafyzmico, da'o.
de'au'u
experimental cmavo mekso ternary operator: positive super-logarithm; the super-logarithm (inverse operator of hyper-operator with respect to "height" of power tower) of a with base b and of order c-2 c is a nonnegative number (currently, must be an integer). Currently, b must be a positive integer in order to be well-defined. c=3 produces the normal/standard/simple logarithm; c=4 produces slog. See also: te'au'u, fe'au'u, dei'au'o.
detri
gismu rafsi: det x1 is the date [day,{week},{month},year] of event/state x2, at location x3, by calendar x4. (time units in x1 are specified as numbers separated by pi'e or are unit values massified with joi); See also cmavo list de'i, djedi, jeftu, masti, nanca, tcika.
di'ei'o'au
experimental cmavo mathematical ternary operator: Dirichlet convolution (a*b)(c) a,b are arithmetic functions, c is an integer (the output is defined for at least strictly positive integers c). (a*b)(c) is given by the sum (over all of the distinct ordered pairs (n,m) belonging to the Cartesian product of the set of all strictly positive integers with itself, such that n is not equal to m and such that nm = c (where adjacency represents typical multiplication of integers)) of a(n)b(m) (where adjacency represents typical pointwise multiplication).
do'oi
experimental cmavo generic single-word generic vocative marker; identifies intended listener with a single, possibly non-Lojban word, delimited by pauses (in speech) or by whitespace (in writing). The intent is that it is allowed everywhere in the grammar where DOI and COI are. See also zo'oi, la'oi, me'oi, ra'oi. Not similar to co'oi. Equivalent to doi la'oi.
dunli
gismu rafsi: dun du'i x1 is equal/congruent to/as much as x2 in property/dimension/quantity x3. Same in quantity/quality (not necessarily in identity); 'analogy' may be expressed as the equivalence of two properties of similarity (ka x1 simsa x2) and (ka x3 simsa x4). See also cmavo list du'i, satci, frica, simsa, mintu.
