bo'ei
experimental cmavo single Lojban-word name quote, turns to selbri-unit: "x1 is that which has this name" Similar to ze'oi, but specifically used for names. Convenient for tanru with brivycme and grammars with brivla-cmevla merge, to avoid having to wrap a single word up in "me la ... ku".
celguntas
cmevla x1 is Sagittarius [astronomical constellation/astrological sign]. From shooter (=celgunta). The Babylonians identified Sagittarius as the god Pabilsaĝ, a strange centaur-like creature firing an arrow from a bow.The sumerian name may be translated as the 'Forefather' or 'Chief Ancestor' (=barda dzena?).

sedais
cmevla Sedai (honorific/title/name/rank/organization) Can be appended to the end of a name. It is also the second part of the name/word "Aes Sedai", which is Lojbanized in full as ".aiz. sedais.". The meaning of "Aes Sedai" and its domain of application varies over the course of the series and over the course of in-universe history; this word can take any such meaning, based on context.

xel
cmevla Hel In Norse mythology, Hel is a being who presides over a realm of the same name. For a more cultural-neutral usage, use daptutra or pacruxtutra. See also "hell" as in the original text of the New Testament (=ce'ol), the concept of "hell" in the Catholic Church (=infernus), the concept of "hell" in Greek mythology (=tartarus).
fertis
cmevla x1 is Virgo [constellation/astrological sign]. From ferti. The Greeks and Romans associated Virgo with their goddess of wheat, Demeter-Ceres who is the mother of Proserpina-Persephone. For this reason the constellation became associated with fertility (in both Babylonia, Greece and Rome). Alternatively, she was sometimes identified as the virgin goddess Iustitia or Astraea, holding the scales of justice in her hand as the constellation Libra. Since ferti in lojban covers both potential and actual/realized fertility, the original meaning of the constellation have been chosen, but you could probably still interpret the name in both senses (as a deity of fecundity or as a fertile virgin).
jo'au
experimental cmavo change version/dialect of parser do'u is the elidable terminator. The morphology and the grammar of cmevla/sumti/selbri following jo'au should conform to the version 134 of the page ``BPFK Section: PEG Morphology Algorithm'' on the website lojban.org and the official grammar so that a jo'au clause forms a free modifier compatible with every version/dialect of lojban parser: for example, ``jo'au jie bu'' and ``jo'au xy xi xei'' are not meaningful clauses. As a standard usage, jo'au clause appears at the very beginning of the whole text, just as the inverse of the usage of fa'o. The scope of the meaning of jo'au clause spans over the following part until the next jo'au clause appears. Optionally, if the first jo'au clause appears in the middle of a text, the meaning of it spans from the beginning of the text until the next jo'au clause appears. Examples of meaning: jo'au cylyly xi papipa (official yacc and jbofi'e http://www.lojban.org/jboski/ ); jo'au camxes (current peg http://camxes.lojban.org/ ); jo'au iocixes (zasni gerna of la xorxes https://skami2.iocikun.jp/lojban/zasniGerna , http://www.lojban.org/tiki/zasni+gerna ); jo'au zantufa xi nopipapa (zantufa version 0.11 http://guskant.github.io/gerna_cipra/zantufa-0.11.html ); jo'au ilmentufa xi renopavopi'epapapi'erevo (ilmentufa version 2014-11-24 http://mw.lojban.org/extensions/ilmentufa/camxes-exp.html , https://github.com/Ilmen-vodhr/ilmentufa ); jo'au fancylojban (fancylojban http://mw.lojban.org/lmw/fancylojban , http://mw.lojban.org/lmw/ce_ki_tau_jau .); jo'au gadganzu (gadri reinterpretation/reassignment proposal, http://mw.lojban.org/papri/zipcpi:_Yet_another_gadri_article ; no grammar changes, only semantic)
rakle
experimental gismu x1 is an atomic element in group x2 [usually, vertical column; denotes electron configuration and, thereby, chemical similarity with vertical neighbors] and period x3 [usually, horizontal row; denotes similarity in size with horizontal neighbors, as well as having the same number and type of electron shells as them] and belonging to other 'class'/'category'/'type'/having other properties x4 according to scheme/organization pattern/standard/periodic table x5. x4 can be any category of similar elements, such as (but not limited to): metals, conductors, gases (at STP), or those elements which obey some sort of pattern following certain atomic/physical/chemical characteristics (such as first iönization energy, stability of nucleus, abnormalities in electron configuration according to naïve expectations, etc.). Groups may (presently) be hard to name (or unsystematic in such) since the periodic table may be infinitely large such that it is equipped with an infinite number of groups between any two mutually nonidentical groups. For now, use cmevla or brivla for designating groups; optionally, pick a representative member of that group. Periods can be designated similarly or by number (counting by ones from one (being the period containing hydrogen)). See also: ratykle, ratniklesi for non-gismu options; ratni, klesi, navni, kliru, cidro, tabno, kijno, gapci, xukmi
