experimental cmavo imaginary i, comma - spherical coordinates: first coordinate gives magnitude (complex modulus/radius) of the number, the second number gives the angle from the positive real axis measured counterclockwise (default: in the primary branch/Arg) as measured in some units (which that number should contain; the contextless default will suppose radians); the angle is not normalized The number (r, x) = r*e^(i x). The angle x is (by default) measured in radians and is not normalized (contains no hidden/inherent multiples of pi). See also: te'o, ka'o.
experimental cmavo non-logical connective/mekso operator - variable arity: X1 \ X2 Ordered: 'x1 kei'i x2' is not generally the same as/equivalent to 'x2 kei'i x1'. If X1 is not explicitly specified, it is taken to be some universal set in the discourse (of which all other mentioned sets are subsets, at the least); in this case, the word operates more as the set (absolute) complement. When X1 is specified, it represents the set relative complement. Somewhat analogous to logical NOT (just as intersection is analogous to logical AND, union is analogous to logical AND-OR). The preferred description/name in English is "set (theoretic) exclusion".
gismu rafsi: kle lei x1 (mass/si'o) is a class/category/subgroup/subset within x2 with defining property x3 (ka). Also taxon, type, kind, classification, species, genus, family, order, phylum. See also cmavo list le'a, cmima, jutsi, ciste, girzu, lanzu, vrici.
experimental cmavo discursive: imperative/hortative ``ko'' is a short form of ''do ko'oi''; broader term than au, a'o, e'o, e'u, e'a, ei; minde, cpedu, curmi, pacna, stidi, djica, bilga
gismu rafsi: kra x1 (site/event) is a source/start/beginning/origin of x2 (object/event/process). Also root (figurative sense); (adjective:) x1 is initial. See also fanmo, cmavo list ra'i, sabji, cfari, jipno, traji, kojna, genja, jicmu, sitna, jinto.
experimental cmavo arbitrary character string or irregular number Accepts any arbitrary string of BY, bu-letterals, PA. Elidable terminator: lo'o. See li'ai, me'o, mo'e, li. [Tentative proposal: li'ei = li pe'o joi'i / me'o pe'o joi'i]
gismu rafsi: lif fri x1 [person/passive/state] undergoes/experiences x2 (event/experience); x2 happens to x1. Also has/have (of events/experiences); (adjective:) x1 is empirical; suggests passive undergoing but does not exclude active (per zukte) intent; a deserved experience: reward or punishment (= jernyfri, zanjernyfri, maljernyfri). See also cmavo list ri'i, jmive, fasnu, renvi.
experimental cmavo Bridi to text conversion Essentially equivalent to se in the context of a se du'u. Inverse of du'au; however note that this is not single-valued, while du'au (provided context) is single-valued. Hence "lu'au du'au" is a useful idiom for constructing a text which has the same basic meaning as another text but is not necessarily the same text.
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: the universal argument/value; syntactically-contextually and type-permitted maximally generic in its typing It is a pro-sumti with a universal reference set (restricted to syntactically-demanded/appropriate type). Probably semantically maximally and generally elliptical/generic. Typing can be restricted by (possibly metalinguistic) restriction. See also: zai'o (pro-sumti; empty), gai'o (pro-bridi; empty), cei'i (pro-bridi; universal), ctaipe. Proposed by: lai .az. .e lai .krtisfranks.
gismu rafsi: mar x1 is a frame of reference/standard for observing/measuring/determining x2, with/by rules x3. (x1 may be object or si'o idea); See also cmavo list ma'i, ckilu, merli, pajni, cimde, jdice, marde.
gismu rafsi: mit mi'u x1 is the same/identical thing as x2 by standard x3; (x1 and x2 interchangeable). (cf. panra, satci, mapti, simsa, drata, dunli, cmavo list du - which has no standard place, simxu)
experimental cmavo evidential: I remember - I don't remember (fact ; that/whether something is true) Differs from vei'i or ba'anai on being based on recollection of facts, not an experience. moi'i is to morji what vei'i/ba'anai is to vedli. Also see moi'icu'i
experimental cmavo munje modal: 1st place; in universe... May be lo fatci, or a universe-of-discourse, real or imagined. See munje, li'i'e, xanri, da'inri, mu'ei, enzasti, enfasnu, va'o, ci'e
experimental cmavo delimited non-Lojban selbri-unit Similar to me'oi but requires delimiters, to allow quotation of multiple words or words with glottal-stops. In other words, me'oi:mu'oi :: zo'oi:zoi :: la'oi:la'o . Equivalent to me'au la'e zoi.
experimental cmavo converts an unevaluated mekso expression into a sumti referencing its evaluated result (if sensible/defined) For example, would be prefixed to ke'a in xe'au-NOIhA clauses in order to reference the bracketed (unevaluated, formal) subexpression's evaluated result. In some sense, this word plays inverse of/to me'o, but may see less general use since expressions are typically evaluated at the end of mekso utterances. (Thus, this word may find its greatest amount of usage within mekso expressions before they are concluded and evaluated.)
experimental cmavo mekso n-ary operator: append covariant (lower) indices to tensor Terminated by te'oi'oi. Takes ordered input (A, X_1, X_2, …, X_(n-1)), where A is a tensor and X_i is an index with an understood (or elsewhere defined) ordered domain. It appends/assigns X_i to be the ith covariant index of A, which is usually designated as a subscript in the ith position to the right of A. See also: ga'u'au. It is probable that Einstein summation notation will be conventionally in effect.
