goilka'i
fu'ivla x1 (text / virtual-text-object) is a variable representing x2 goi is a special case that makes, e.g. zo ko'a, a goilka'i of something. However the main use of this brivla is to allow ko'a itself, or something like {la .strin.}, to be a virtual "text" standing in for some object, while la'e is used to extract the referent from it. This allows propositions to be truth-conditional on what a variable represents at that point of time, rather than conditional on the referent itself. See sumka'i, goilgau, goilbi'o, krati.
ka'ei
experimental cmavo abstractor: predicate abstractor. x1 is the predicate expressed by [bridi], using bo'a, bo'e, etc for variables. Identical in meaning to an n-ary ka, but with lambda-variables bound to bo'a/bo'e/bo'i/bo'o/bo'u (bo'ai for additional variables) instead of ce'u (which may still be used for "next place"). This is mainly for convenience, to avoid having to assign pro-sumti to ce'u variables either with goi or ce'ai. See me'ei, me'au, cei'e, ckaji, ckini
cei'e
experimental cmavo define following selbri with sentence or tu'e...tu'u clause Usage: The selbri after cei'e is defined by the associated sentence or tu'e...tu'u clause. bo'a, bo'e, bo'i, bo'o, and bo'u represent places x1 through x5 within its place structure. (Use bo'ai for more places if needed, or ce'u for "next place"). // cei'e is meant to be used to define new words (implicit ca'e) but may be modified by evidentials to express an assertion (ju'a) or opinion (pe'i) on a meaning instead. Alternatively, smuni and ka'ei may be used. // See cei, goi, goi'e
