brivlasmicme
lujvo c_{1}=s_{1} (quoted word(s)) is a name of c_{2} used by c_{3} that morphologically [loose] evokes/is similar to/is a brivla bv_{1}=s_{2} (text; may be multiple words), similar in property/quality[/amount?] s_{3} (ka/ni), in language x_{6} 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.


dunda
gismu rafsi: dud du'a x_{1} [donor] gives/donates gift/present x_{2} to recipient/beneficiary x_{3} [without payment/exchange]. Also grants; x_{3} is a receiver (= terdu'a for reordered places); the Lojban doesn't distinguish between or imply possession transfer or sharing; x_{2} may be a specific object, a commodity (mass), an event, or a property; pedantically, for objects/commodities, this is sumtiraising from ownership of the object/commodity (= posydu'a, posyseldu'a for unambiguous semantics). See also benji, muvdu, canja, pleji, vecnu, friti, sfasa, dapma, cnemu, prali.


nakcei
lujvo c_{1} is a god (specifically, male deity) of people(s)/religion c_{2} with dominion over c_{3} [sphere]. In English, "god" can be either genderless or male (depending on context and contrast), while specifically indicating a female deity by use of the word "goddess". In order to correct this imbalance, Lojban is equipped with fetcei and nakcei (among other words) for the variously characterized deities, whereas cevni makes no implications about the gender of the deity. Cf. fetcei, nakni, cevni, lijda, krici, censa, malsi. Recommended to be used only use when contrasted with fetcei or masculinity of the deity is to be emphasized/important.


sovda
gismu rafsi: sov so'a x_{1} is an egg/ovum/sperm/pollen/gamete of/from organism [mother/father] x_{2}. (poorly metaphorical only due to gender and species being unspecified): ovoid, oblate (= pevyso'aseltai, but better: claboi); egg, specifically female (= fetso'a), of a bird (= cpifetso'a, cpiso'a), of a chicken (= jipcyfetso'a, jipcyso'a. (but note that Lojban does not require specificity, just as English doesn't for either milk or eggs; "sovda" is fine for most contexts); If fertilized, then tsiju or tarbi. (cf. ganti, gutra, mamta, patfu, rorci, tsiju, lanbi, tarbi; also djine, konju for shape, tarbi)


terjonle'u
lujvo x_{1} (letteral: la'e zo BY/wordbu) is a hyphen/joining letter(al) in language x_{2} with function in/context of use/with rules for use/with properties x_{3}, joining prefixed unit/lexeme/morpheme/string x_{4} (quote) to postfixed unit/lexeme/morpheme/string x_{5} (quote) in construct (full word) x_{6} (quote) x_{1} joins words/morphemes/particles into a single cohesive, grammatical unit. x_{4} and x_{5} may be improper quotes. In English, "" is such a hyphen letteral; in Lojban, ybu, ry, ny, and ly are such hyphen letterals (arguably, as is y'y). The fact that the letteral is used to join words is implicit and this function therefore need not be specified in x_{3} in most cases.


tai'e'i
experimental cmavo mekso unary operator: basic Schlafli symbol composer (defined only on ordered lists) Given an ordered (typically finite) list (which is a single object) of zero or more (probably nonnegative) rational numbers, L = (X_1, X_2, ..., X_n). This word composes them in order into a Schlafli symbol S(L) with these entries exactly and without any entries that do not appear in the list so as to produce an (n1)dimensional regular polytope. For example: L = () implies that S(L) = S(()) is a line segment. Where L = (6), S(L) = S((6)) is a regular convex hexagon; generally, for integer X_1 > 2, S((X_1)) is a proper convex regular (X_1)gon. S((X_1, X_2) is a proper convex regular polyhedron with polygonal faces being all of form S((X_1)) such that they are arranged with X_2 touching at each vertex of the polyhedron. Star polytopes and tessellations are supported. More general notation such as Schlafli symbols prefixed by a letter/acted upon by a function, which are affixed with/multiplied by a number or other symbols, which contain "", etc. are not presently supported in this definition; only the most basic/classic Schlafli symbols (those composed of a single pair of curly braces containing rational numbers separated only by commas, and nothing else) are presently supported. Certain operators (such as "half", "alter", etc., as well as Cartesian product, "add"/"plus", and "join", and affixation of other numbers or symbols) have somewhat special definitions on Schlafli symbols; they are presently not supported in Lojban (but this will hopefully soon change). Not all ordered lists will produce good output. See also: tarmrclefli

fu'ivla x_{1} is an eigenvalue (or zero) of linear transformation/square matrix x_{2}, associated with/'owning' all vectors in generalized eigenspace x_{3} (implies neither nondegeneracy nor degeneracy; default includes the zero vector) with 'eigenspacegeneralization' power/exponent x_{4} (typically and probably by cultural default will be 1), with algebraic multiplicity (of eigenvalue) x_{5} For any eigenvector v in generalized eigenspace x_{3} of linear transformation x_{2} for eigenvalue x_{1}, where I is the identity matrix/transformation that works/makes sense in the context, the following equation is satisfied: ((x_{2}  x_{1} I)^x_{4})v = 0. When the argument of x_{4} is 1, the generalized eigenspace x_{3} is simply a strict/simple/basic eigenspace; this is the typical (and probable cultural default) meaning of this word. x_{4} will typically be restricted to integer values k > 0. x_{2} should always be specified (at least implicitly by context), for an eigenvalue does not mean much without the linear transformation being known. However, since one usually knows the said linear transformation, and since the basic underlying relationship of this word is "eigenness", the eigenvalue is given the primary terbri (x_{1}). When filling x_{3} and/or x_{4}, x_{2} and x_{1} (in that order of importance) should already be (at least contextually implicitly) specified. x_{3} is the set of all eigenvectors of linear transformation x_{2}, endowed with all of the typical operations of the vector space at hand. The default includes the zero vector (else the x_{3} eigenspace is not actually a vector space); normally in the context of mathematics, the zero vector is not considered to be an eigenvector, but by this definition it is included. Thus, a Lojban mathematician would consider the zero vector to be an (automatic) eigenvector of the given (in fact, any) linear transformation (particularly ones represented by a square matrix in a given basis). This is the logically most basic definition, but is contrary to typical mathematical culture. This word implies neither nondegeneracy nor degeneracy of eigenspace x_{3}. In other words there may or may not be more than one linearly independent vector in the eigenspace x_{3} for a given eigenvalue x_{1} of linear transformation x_{2}. x_{3} is the unique generalized eigenspace of x_{2} for given values of x_{1} and x_{4}. x_{1} is not necessarily the unique eigenvalue of linear transformation x_{2}, nor is its multiplicity necessarily 1 for the same. Beware when converting the terbri structure of this word. In fact, the set of all eigenvalues for a given linear transformation x_{2} will include scalar zero (0); therefore, any linear transformation with a nontrivial set of eigenvalues will have at least two eigenvalues that may fill in terbri x_{1} of this word. The 'eigenvalue' of zero for a proper/nice linear transformation will produce an 'eigenspace' that is equivalent to the entire vector space at hand. If x_{3} is specified by a set of vectors, the span of that set should fully yield the entire eigenspace of the linear transformation x_{2} associated with eigenvalue x_{1}, however the set may be redundant (linearly dependent); the zero vector is automatically included in any vector space. A multidimensional eigenspace (that is to say a vector space of eigenvectors with dimension strictly greater than 1) for fixed eigenvalue and linear transformation (and generalization exponent) is degenerate by definition. The algebraic multiplicity x_{5} of the eigenvalue does not entail degeneracy (of eigenspace) if greater than 1; it is the integer number of occurrences of a given eigenvalue x_{1} in the multiset of eigenvalues (spectrum) of the given linear transformation/square matrix x_{2}. In other words, the characteristic polynomial can be factored into linear polynomial primes (with root x_{1}) which are exponentiated to the power x_{5} (the multiplicity; notably, not x_{4}). For x_{4} > x_{5}, the eigenspace is trivial. x_{2} may not be diagonalizable. The scalar zero (0) is a naturally permissible argument of x_{1} (unlike some cultural mathematical definitions in English). Eigenspaces retain the operations and properties endowing the vectorspaces to which they belong (as subspaces). Thus, an eigenspace is more than a set of objects: it is a set of vectors such that that set is endowed with vectorspace operators and properties. Thus klesi alone is insufficient. But the set underlying eigenspace x_{3} is a type of klesi, with the property of being closed under linear transformation x_{2} (up to scalar multiplication). The vector space and basis being used are not specified by this word. Use this word as a seltau in constructions such as "eigenket", "eigenstate", etc. (In such cases, te aigne is recommended for the typical English usages of such terms. Use zei in lujvo formed by these constructs. The term "eigenvector" may be rendered as cmima be le te aigne). See also gei'ai, klesi, daigno
