gismu rafsi: kau x1 (property - ka) is common/general/universal among members of set x2 (complete set). Only fully universal sense applies; x1 must be found in all members of x2. For the non-universal sense see fadni and zilfadni. See also cafne, rirci, fadni, cnano, tcaci, lakne, cmima, simxu.
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.
lujvo x1=n1 (quantity/amount) is the physical work performed on object x2=m1=b2 (object), due to/applied by x3=b1 (force; ka?), in its (x2's) movement to destination x4=m2 [away] from origin x5=m3 along(/by/in/on) path/route x6=m4 It is not clear that x2 can be an event or manifestation; thus bapli2 loses some of its typing. This word was, essentially, proposed by the official gimste.
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.
gismu rafsi: ral x1 is principal/chief/leader/main/[staple], most significant among x2 (set) in property x3 (ka). Staple (= ralselpra); general/admiral/president/principal leader (= ralja'a, ralterbe'e; use additional terms to distinguish among these); also primary, prime, (adverb:) chiefly, principally, mainly; (x2 is complete specification of set). See also vajni, te bende, minde, lidne, jatna, jitro, gidva, midju.
lujvo x1=c1=p1 is sexually polyamorous/sexually loves many people/more than one person including, but not limited to, set x2=p2 in situation/activity/state x3=c2, exhibiting sexuality/gender/sexual orientation (ka) x4=c3 by standard x5=c4. Leaving in all the places of cinse doesn't do much, but it probably doesn't hurt. See also cinse, prami, so'i, sorpa'i.
gismu rafsi: tec te'i x1 (ka) is specific/particular/specialized/[special]/a defining property of x2 among x3 (set). [x2 are members/individuals of a subset of x3; object whose association is specific/defining of a subset or individuals (= tecra'a, also cf. cmavo list po'e, [x2 is also special to x1]); also: especially/strongly/specifically associated]; (x3 is completely specified set)]; See also srana, se ponse, ckini, tcila, tutra.
gismu rafsi: xam x1 is funny/comical to x2 in property/aspect x3 (nu/ka); x3 is what is funny about x1 to x2. Also: x1 is a comedian (= xampre, xamseljibri for a professional comedian).

lujvo c1=s1 (quoted word(s)) is a name of c2 used by c3 that morphologically [loose] evokes/is similar to/is a brivla bv1=s2 (text; may be multiple words), similar in property/quality[/amount?] s3 (ka/ni), in language x6 s3 will likely just be morphological structure. Strict brivlacme are a subclass of brivlasmicme. The name must "look like" a (sequence of) brivla (according to rules for language x6), but need not exactly follow the morphological requirements thereof (in particular, c1 may end with a consonant in Lojban). See also: brivlacme (a specialization); jvosmicme (a different specialization that is analogous but restricted to Lojbanic lujvo). Language is specified to be x6 rather than bv_n because the definition for brivla has not yet gained consensus and this particular terbri is dependent thereupon.
gismu rafsi: caj x1 exchanges/trades/barters commodity x2 for x3 with x4; x1, x4 is a trader/merchant/businessman. Also (adjective:) x1, x2, x4 is/are commercial (better expressed as ka canja, kamcanja). x2/x3 may be a specific object, a commodity (mass), an event (possibly service), or a property; pedantically, for objects/commodities, this is sumti-raising from ownership of the object/commodity (= posycanja for unambiguous semantics); (cf. dunda, friti, vecnu, zarci, jdini, pleji, jdima, jerna, kargu; see note at jdima on cost/price/value distinction, banxa, cirko, dunda, janta, kargu, prali, sfasa, zivle)
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.
gismu rafsi: kad x1 is dim/dull/pale/non-intense in property x2 (ka) as received/measured by observer x3. In colors, indicates unsaturated, pastel, pale (though blabi can also indicate a kind of paleness). See also blabi, carmi, klina, linto, manku, murse, ruble, skari, milxe, blanu, bunre, cicna, crino, grusi, narju, nukni, pelxu, xekri, xunre, zirpu.
gismu rafsi: pai x1 judges/referees/arbitrates/is a judge determining/deciding matter x2 (abstract). x2 includes jei = rule (jetpai), ni = estimate (lairpai), ka = evaluate (kairpai or vampai), or nu = referee/arbitrate (faurpai); single events of judging including specific decisions/judgements (= paijdi, jetpaijdi, lairpaijdi, kairpaijdi, vampaijdi, faurpaijdi); jury (= pairkamni), serve on a jury (= kamnypai, as part of mass x1). See also cuxna, jdice, vajni, cipra, zekri, manri, mansa.
gismu rafsi: sau x1 is old/familiar/well-known to observer x2 in feature x3 (ka) by standard x4. This can cover both meanings of old. Old in years, i.e. age, can be conveyed through x2 = the world, life, existence (= loi nu zasti); in usage this has been a common default for ellipsis. However slabu is not the opposite of 'young' (= nalci'o, tolci'o), but the opposite of 'new' (= tolni'o); also ancient (= tcesau), age (= nilsau); x2 is used to x1 (= selsau for reordered places); historic/historical (= cirsau, cirselcedra; also vaipru). (cf. clani, citno, cnino, se djuno; not the opposite of citno, djuno)
lujvo x1=j2=p3 (ka; jo'u/fa'u term) is the minor difference in/between x2=p2 and x3=p1 that is to be ignored, their similarity being by standard/in geometry x4; x2 is the same as/similar to/parallels x3 in standard/geometry x4 up to/modulo/except for/ignoring unimportant difference x1; x1 is not the focus of the main consideration concerning the similarity between x2 and x3; x2 belongs to/is an element of the same equivalence class as x3, which depends on x4 in some way and which ignores the property x1. For example, tetrominoes "L" and "7" are similar up to the unimportant property of 90-degree rotation; thus: loka carna keiku ly terpanryziltolju'i zebu loka mapti. x2 and x3 are symmetric; while with panra, x1 (which is x3 in terpanryziltolju'i) is possibly of importance/focus/attention, for terpanryziltolju'i, x2 is. Additionally, lo panra and lo se panra are identical, therefore conversion under te does not affect the x2 and x3 positions of panra, so the overall structure does not need to have undergone an additional conversion. See: panra, klesi, panrykle, panryzilbri
