lujvo b1 is a Signed Language used by x2=b2 to express/communicate b3 (si'o/du'u, not quote). (x1) - "Sign Language" in the sense of visually transmitting patterns using hands, arms, body, and facial expression to convey meaning (i.e., Manual communication, body language).

lujvo x1 (predicate) is true when applied to argument list x2 (sequence) Synonymous to brije'u. The x1 slot can be filled with a property/relation (ka) whose number of free slots match the length of the sequence x2. It can also be filled with a bridi abstraction (du'u) —nullary predicate—, in which case the x2 should be the empty set or possibly zi'o. See also bridi.
experimental cmavo argument list separator: acts as a comma between arguments in an argument list supplied to a function. "ce'oi" is the word of choice to separate the arguments in bridi3. Using ce'o there has obvious limitations when the selbri actually calls for a sequence. Obviously, ce'oi has issues too if the selbri can accept an argument list, but this can be circumvented more readily with ke...ke'e brackets than it can with ce'o. Consider ".i lo ka broda cu selbri fi ko'a ce'o ko'e". Without inspecting the type requirements of broda and the respective types of ko'a and ko'e, one cannot determine the meaning of the bridi. Furthermore, if one accepts non-static typing of sumti places, multiple correct answers can be given for a question asking what is the bridi1. This would create ambiguity that is otherwise resolved by "ce'oi". See also ka, du'u, me'au
gismu rafsi: jun ju'o x1 knows fact(s) x2 (du'u) about subject x3 by epistemology x4.

Contrast with: bancocysle (which is nonvocal). Recognition of a phoneme as linguistically distinct is language-dependent; b1 is a language which includes/recognizes said phoneme (and which realizes/recognizes/categorizes/divides phones s2 into the equivalence class of that phoneme). x6 and x7 are not predictable from the veljvo.
lujvo x1 swears / takes an oath, promising/asserting x2 (abstraction), invoking fate x3 (abstraction) x2 could be a nu-event or ka-action that x1 intends to happen or perform, or a du'u-proposition that x1 swears the truth of. x3 is a fate (typically bad) that x1 invokes on themself should they break the oath. tu'a can be used to raise x3, to swear by a treasured possession (implied fate being loss of that possession), or a deity (implied fate being the wrath of said deity).

gismu rafsi: cki x1 (person) explains x2 (event/state/property) to x3 with explanation x4 (du'u). Explanation x4 is an underlying mechanism/details/purpose/method for x2 (= velcki for reordered places), generally assumed to be non-obvious; metaphorical usage with the various causal relations (i.e. jalge, mukti, krinu, rinka, nibli, zukte) is possible, but the non-obviousness, and the existence of an explainer with a point of view makes this word not a simple expression of cause. See also cipra, danfu, jalge, jinvi, krinu, mukti, nabmi, preti, rinka, sidbo, zukte, tavla.
