mapra
experimental gismu x1 is a quantity of fluff of composition/structure/characterization/substance x2; x1 is fluffy/airy/soft/fuzzy in texture Visual and tactile. Most likely is malleable, but this word has no such implications inherently; porousness or foaminess is likewise not implied. Might also include "cushiony", "cotton-like", "wool-like"; a fractal nature might be present. For fuzziness: not necessarily hairy or furry, but must be soft; not bristly (which implies stiffness and hardness). See also: ranti, rufsu, xutla, panje, dilnu, mapni, sunla, fonmo, jduli, pesxu, marji.
mikce
gismu rafsi: mic x1 doctors/treats/nurses/[cures]/is physician/midwife to x2 for ailment x3 by treatment/cure x4. Also medic; (adjective:) x1, x4 is medical; x2 is a patient of x1 (= selmikce for reordered places) ; x2 is treated by x1 person/x4 treatment/method; successfully cure transitive (= sadmikce, sadvelmikce), intransitive (= sadyselmikce, ka'orbi'o to not imply an external agent/process, though the x1 and x4 of mikce may be self/internal); treatment (= velmikce). See also bilma, kanro, spita.
minde
gismu rafsi: mid mi'e x1 issues commands/orders to x2 for result x3 (event/state) to happen; x3 is commanded to occur. [also: x1 orders/sets/Triggers. x2 to do/bring about x3; x1 is a commander; commanded (= termi'e)]; See also lacri, te bende, jatna, ralju, jitro, turni, tinbe.
minli
gismu x1 is x2 (default 1) long local distance unit(s) [non-metric], x3 subunits, standard x4. (additional subunit places may be added as x5, x6, ...); See also mitre, kilto, clani, ganra, condi, rotsu, rupnu, fepni, dekpu, gutci, minli, merli, bunda, kramu.
minra
gismu rafsi: mir x1 reflects/mirrors/echoes x2 [object/radiation] to observer/point x3 as x4; x2 bounces on x1. Also: x1 is a mirror/reflector. x2 may be light, lu'e of an imaged object; x4 may be image or echo or the same as x2 if physical object; x3 may be a path for a bounced object; ka is reflection. See also catlu, viska, lenjo, pensi.
molro
gismu rafsi: mo'o x1 is x2 mole(s) [metric unit] in substance (default is 1) by standard x3. See also centi, decti, dekto, femti, gigdo, gocti, gotro, kilto, megdo, mikri, milti, nanvi, petso, picti, terto, xatsi, xecto, xexso, zepti, zetro.
mugle
experimental gismu x1 is a Muggle to/distinctly separate from but of similar breed to (type/community) x2, reflecting common/Muggle culture x3; x1 is not in-the-know about (people/group/culture/knowledge) x2. x1 is a Muggle/an outsider/a foreigner/uninitiated to group/community x2. Not mere stranger: implies a (previous or typical) total lack of knowledge about the existence or awareness of x2 on the part of x1. x1 is a Muggle. x2 is specialist/foreign/alien/arcane/hidden/wizarding/magic culture (not restrictive: it is just any separate group); x3 is Muggle/quotidian culture. x1 lacks the access credentials/knowledge of culture/group x2 and is a member of culture/group x3.
mukti
gismu rafsi: muk mu'i x1 (action/event/state) motivates/is a motive/incentive for action/event x2, per volition of x3. Also; x3 is motivated to bring about result/goal/objective x2 by x1 (= termu'i for reordered places); (note that 'under conditions' BAI may apply and be appropriately added to the main predicate level or within the x2 action level). (cf. cmavo list mu'i, nibli, te zukte - generally better for 'goal', se jalge, krinu, rinka, ciksi, djica, xlura)
nenri
gismu rafsi: ner ne'i x1 is in/inside/within x2; x1 is on the inside/interior of x2 [totally within the bounds of x2]. Indicates total containment. (cf. se vasru (for containment that need not be total), jbini, zvati, cpana, sruri, senta, snuji, bartu, diklo, jibni, jinru, setca)
nicfa
experimental gismu x1 (vector) is the displacement of x2 (object/point) relative to x3 (object/point; contextless default: origin) in coordinate system/frame of reference/as measured by x4 according to definition/standard/(meta)physics x5 x1 is (four-)vector-valued; it is a function that maps to a tensor (probably a vector or scalar) to a (four-)vector. Units are handled in x1, which will be a (four-)vector of mitre or the like. Time of measurement is just «ca» or the argument of the function(s) in x1, or can be defined instantaneously by x4. Proposed short rafsi: -nif-. See also: nifkemtemsalri.
nifkemtemsalri
lujvo x1 (vector) is the differintegral (with respect to time) of order x2 of the displacement of x3 (object/point) relative to x4 (object/point/frame of reference; contextless default: origin) in coordinate system/frame of reference/as measured by x5 according to definition/standard/(meta)physics x6, taken with starting point x7 This word uses two experimental gismu (one with an experimental rafsi): nicfa and salri. If x2 is positive, then x1 is a time-derivative (velocity, acceleration, jerk, etc. (for whole number values)); if it is negative, then x1 is a time-integral (moments); if it is 0, then x1 is displacement itself. x1 is vector-valued.
nifkemtemsalryke'ecusna
lujvo x1 (scalar-valued) is the magnitude of the vector of the differintegral (with respect to time) of order x2 of the displacement of x3 (object/point) relative to x4 (object/point/frame of reference; contextless default: origin) in coordinate system/frame of reference/as measured by x5 according to definition/standard/(meta)physics x6, where the differintegral is taken with starting point x7, in metric/by definition x8 This word uses three experimental gismu (with one experimental short cmavo for one of these): nicfa (-nif-), salri, cusna.
notci
gismu rafsi: not noi x1 is a message/notice/memorandum about subject x2 from author x3 to intended audience x4. Emphasis on brevity, single or identifiable subject (contrast with xatra: the emphasis in notci is on the single or cohesively focused subject, while the audience is less defined - indeed only an 'intended' audience. xatra need not have a single or focussed subject - its corresponding place is for 'content'); reminder/memo/note (= mojnoi). See also xatra, nuzba, mrilu, morji.
pambe
gismu x1 is a pump/injector [tool/apparatus] pumping/inserting fluid x2 to x3 from x4 by means x5. x2 fluid may be liquid or gas; x5 may be a force; a pump generally causes a pressure gradient, such that x3 is a place of lower pressure, x4 a place of higher pressure. (cf. gapci, litki, rinci; metaphorical use of fepri for gas, risna for liquid, rinci, tutci)
panra
gismu x1 parallels x2 differing only in property x3 (ka; jo'u/fa'u term) by standard/geometry x4. Also: x1 is parallel to x2, x3 is the only difference between x1 and x2 (= terpanra for reordered places); x1 and x2 are alike/similar/congruent. A parallel involves extreme close similarity/correspondence across the entirety of the things being compared, generally involving multiple properties, with focus placed on one or a small number of differences. See also pa'a, mintu, simsa, girzu, vrici.
pensi
gismu rafsi: pes pei x1 thinks/considers/cogitates/reasons/is pensive about/reflects upon subject/concept x2. Also: x1 is thoughtful (one sense); x2 is mental (one sense)/intellectual (one sense) (= selpei). See also cmavo list pe'i, jijnu, menli, morji, sidbo, jinvi, se nabmi, minra, lanli, besna, saske, skami.
