If a person has not had a chance to acquire his target language by the time he's an adult, he's unlikely to be able to reach native speaker level in that language.


ba'ai


cumki
gismu rafsi: cum cu'i x_{1} (event/state/property) is possible under conditions x_{2}; x_{1} may/might occur; x_{1} is a maybe. Also possibility. See also lakne.


cunyna'u


jinzi


cafne


cnano


cunso
gismu rafsi: cun cu'o x_{1} is random/fortuitous/unpredictable under conditions x_{2}, with probability distribution x_{3}. Also accidental, chancy, by chance, adventitious, arbitrary (also = cuncu'a, cunselcu'a, cunjdi, cunseljdi; based on "unpredictable"). See also cnici, lakne, funca, kalsa, snuti.


fadni
gismu rafsi: fad x_{1} [member] is ordinary/common/typical/usual in property x_{2} (ka) among members of x_{3} (set). Also: x_{2} is a normal/common/ordinary/typical property among set x_{3} (= selterfadni for reordered places); also regular, (mabla forms:) banal, trite, vulgar; (x_{3} is complete set). See also cafne, rirci, kampu, lakne, tcaci, cnano.


indika
fu'ivla x_{1} (event/state) implies / suggests / is circumstantial evidence for x_{2} (du'u) // The probability that x_{2} is true, given x_{1}, is greater than the probability without x_{1} Similar to nibli, but merely means circumstantial/forensic, not logical, evidence, that may be contradicted by other circumstantial evidences or interpretations. See krinu, lakne, didni, nusna


tcaci


kampu
gismu rafsi: kau x_{1} (property  ka) is common/general/universal among members of set x_{2} (complete set). Only fully universal sense applies; x_{1} must be found in all members of x_{2}. For the nonuniversal sense see fadni and zilfadni. See also cafne, rirci, fadni, cnano, tcaci, lakne, cmima, simxu.


kanpe
experimental gismu x_{1} expects/looks for the occurence of x_{2} (event), expected likelihood x_{3} (01, default {li} {so'a} i.e. near 1); x_{1} subjectively evaluates the likelihood of x_{2} (event) to be x_{3}. The value of x_{3} is a subjective estimate of likeliness according to x_{1}, and is the basic determinant of whether kanpe means something like "hope" or "wish" or "expect", although kanpe never carries the connotation of desire; for that connotation see pacna. kanpe with x_{3} not very close to 1 has no simple equivalent in English, but for objects/states with negligible expectation it is something like "wishing"; if the state is plausibly likely, it is something like "hoping". In both cases, though, the English implication of emotional desire is not present. The value will usually be expressed using inexact numbers ("li piso'u" to "li piro"); notnecessarily desirous wish, not necessarily desirous hope. See also ba'a, djica, pacna, lakne, cunso.
