valtcizbaga

jbofuvi
fu'ivla x1 is a Lojban-derived zi'evla/"self-loan-word" with meaning x2 derived from word(s) x3 From lojbo + fu'ivla, shortening of jbojbofu'ivla. See zi'evla. Examples of jbofuvi: crenzuue, gentufa, aiste, and of course, jbofuvi itself. // Although usually refers to zi'evla, is not necessarily limited to it - jinda (from jipno dirce tarmi) is an experimental gismu that's a jbofuvi, while dzipo (from cadzu cipni) is an original gismu that's also a jbofuvi.
zifyvlaklerafsi
lujvo x1 (quote) is a zi'evla/fu'ivla categorizer particle/morpheme/unit with meaning/indicating category x2, having properties x3, and that is appended in zi'evla (full word) x4, in language x5 Applies to any categorizer particle/word/morpheme/lexeme/string/unit; does not necessarily have to be a single jborafsi (even in Lojban zi'evla). Does not include the hyphen letter, nor the rest of the word (including any letter prefixed thereto if the rest of the word would otherwise start with a vowel). Quote the empty string (lu li'u) if the explicit categorizer is absent; in general, the quote will likely be improper in Lojban. See also: zifyvlavelvi'u, ra'oi, zi'evla, fu'ivla
ridrdverga
obsolete fu'ivla c1 is a dwarf [mythology/fantasy] of mythology c2. A mythological being that dwells in mountains and in the earth, and is associated with wisdom, smithing, mining, and crafting. Scholars dispute the size of the Norse nature spirit, the Dvergr. As Tolkien was inspired by the dwarves of Norse myths and dwarves of Germanic folklore, this word could be used to refer to the dwarfs of the fictional universe Middle-Earth (Khazad) as well, and possibly of other fantasy universes. The fu'ivla derived from Old Norse: dvergar; Old English: dweorg; Old High German: twerg.
skoto
gismu rafsi: kot ko'o x1 reflects Gaelic/Scottish culture/nationality/language in aspect x2. Irish (= sicko'o), Scottish (= sunko'o), Celtic (= dzeko'o), Welsh (= nanko'o), Breton (= fasko'o); since Scottish/Gaelic is only the northern branch of the Celtic tribes, many would prefer a fu'ivla for Celtic; nationalism might also demand a separate fu'ivla for Irish. See also brito, glico.
snafu'ivla
lujvo x1 is an onomatopoeic word meaning x2 in language x3, based on sound x4 emitted by x5 Syn. {sa'ei zei valsi}, onmatopo'eia. Note: do not be confused by the similarity to fu'ivla; snafu'ivla does not necessarily indicate a loan word; rather, it refers to copying (fukpi) a sound (sance).
zifyvlavelvi'u
lujvo x1 (quote) is the non-categorizer and non-hyphen remainder of zi'evla/fu'ivla x2 (quote), with properties/form x3 in language [of zi'evla] x4 Quotation may be improper.
