experimental cmavo reverses modification order of contained tanru (does not affect lujvo). Marks a "selskiski"/"military-style"/"noun-adjective" tanru, i.e. tertau come *before* seltau. This differs from co in that it does not affect the place structure of the sumti to the right; i.e. in {mi ke'oi broda brode do} (= {mi brode broda do}), both mi and do are arguments of broda. Default grouping is still left: {lo ke'oi ckule nixli cmalu melbi} resolves to {lo ke'oi (((ckule nixli) cmalu) melbi)}, which is equivalent to {lo melbi ke cmalu ke nixli ckule}. co does not (re-)reverse the order of tanru-modification; it only changes place structure. See ke'e'u.

lujvo x1 (number) is the least element/minimum of the set (of numbers) x2 under (partial) ordering x3 x1 must be a set. If this word is being used as a function (min), common but lazy mathematical practice allows for speaking of "the minimum of a function" (including sequences) or to constrain the minimum with respect to certain variables, but these constraints can and properly ought to be incorporated into the definition of the set of which the minimum is being taken. This word is not limited to purely mathematical usage and the set can be defined loosely (such as in "the minimum legally acceptable wage" wherein the set x2 is understood to be the set of all legally acceptable wages). The minimum x1 must belong to set x2; compare with: zmaraimecna'u (infimum). See also: nacyzmarai.
