kantu
gismu rafsi: ka'u x1 is a quantum/ray/elementary particle/smallest measurable increment of property/activity x2. Quantum ray (= bonka'u). (cf. selci for masses and most objects; ratni, gradu, gusni, nejni, linji)
.a'o lo gusni be fi lo trixe be lo tubnu cu se cupra fe nai lo trene poi klama fa'a mi
I hope the light at the end of the tunnel is not from the train coming on me.
solri
gismu rafsi: sol x1 is the sun of home planet x2 (default Earth) of race x3; (adjective:) x1 is solar. 'home planet' refers to a planet which is "home" to a race, but not necessarily the original "home" of a species if that species inhabits many worlds. See also gusni, lunra, mluni, plini, santa, terdi, tarci.
le re mei pu troci lo ka ganse le gusni vau za'u re'u i ku'i le re mei na pu djuno lo du'u xu kau la'e de'e cu du lo sinxa poi le re mei ze'u kanpe tu'a ke'a
They both tried to observe it once again. But they didn't know whether that was the sign they had been expecting for so long.
carmi
gismu rafsi: cam cai x1 is intense/bright/saturated/brilliant in property (ka) x2 as received/measured by observer x3. Also lustrous, gleaming, sparkling, shining (all probably better metaphorically combined with gusni: gusycai or camgu'i); in colors, refers principally to increased saturation (with opposite kandi). See also denmi, gusni, kandi, ruble, skari, tilju, tsali, mutce, blabi, blanu, bunre, cicna, crino, grusi, narju, nukni, pelxu, xekri, xunre, zirpu.
xipfne
obsolete fu'ivla x1 emits light characteristic of/is of the color that is described by/(as) arising from/associated with the approximately twenty-one centimeter wavelength, hydrogen hyperfine proton/electron spin-flip transition (from parallel to antiparallel configuration, id est: from the higher energy state to the lower energy state), electromagnetic radiation In analogy to xunre and the like. See also: skari, blabi, xekri, kandi, carmi, nukni, narju, rozgu, zirpu, pelxu, xunre, cidro, lektoni, protoni, dikca, maksi, guska'u, gusni, cradi. This color is a subset/element (depending on interpretation/usage) of the colors associated with light in the radio and microwave regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Speaker determines how close "approximately twenty-one centimeters" is to exactly twenty-one centimeters. Technically can only be used for the coloration of light that would arise from the hyperfine spin-flip transition of a hydrogen atom (without any neutrons) in which the proton-electron quantum spin configuration abruptly changes from parallel to antiparallel in the 1s groundstate. But other isotopes and/or hydrogenic (id est: single-electron) atoms can be referenced by semantic broadening; note that in any case, this word always refers to the color of the light emitted from such an object. This is a color, not a description of the process, conditions under which the light of this color is emitted, etc., nor is it the light itself nor wavelength of the light. However, this term probably will come up in all such descriptions. For example, "hyperfine spin-flip transition" might be rendered {xipfne binxo}. Technically, any object that emits photons with wavelengths of approximately twenty-one centimeters will be of the color xipfne, regardless of why such emission is occurring (id est: it need not be due to hydrogen hyperfine, proton/electron spin-flip transitions). Usage in such a case is perfectly acceptable. However, in practice, such occasions/contexts will be rare (essentially completely absent except in theory) and the only common usage will be in the context of hydrogen hyperfine proton/electron spin-flip transitions (as in astronomy, chemistry, or quantum mechanics). This is an electromagnetic (id est: light, photon) color. It is physical (being derived from the properties of the wavelength of the emitted and received photon(s)), but is interpreted by some instrument (such as a telescope/camera system, an animal's optical system, etc.). Usage need not be technical.
