nibysucyjvo
lujvo l1 is an implicit-abstraction lujvo with meaning l2 and arguments l3 built from metaphor [tanru] l4. The term “implicit-abstraction lujvo” is specific to Lojban and originates from The Lojban Reference Grammar, chapter 12, section 13.
xlajvo
lujvo x1 is a bad/poorly-made lujvo with issue x2, bad according to x3 and by standard x4 The badness need not be an error per se; it may merely be some feature (x2) that is not desirable or relatively preferable. For example, perhaps the terbri structure is not predictable/regular/algorithmic, or the lujvo is very long, or the lujvo is not the highest-scoring lujvo (for some fixed tanru construct) according to an algorithm/standard. See also: srejvo.
jvajvo
lujvo l1 is a regular/predictable lujvo (compound predicate word) with meaning l2 and arguments l3 built from phrase l4 and having an argument structure according to rule j1. A Lojban-specific term. The approach of jvajvo is intended to at least constrain what the x2, x3, x4... etc. of a lujvo may be, and also to draw the semantic values of those places from the semantic values of the places of the component brivla. The rationale is that the place structure of an unknown lujvo should not require memorization. This was previously known as ``dikyjvo''; a mistranslation of ``regular lujvo'', as it used the wrong sense of ``regular'' (see dikni).
jvocme
lujvo c1 (quoted word(s)) is a name of c2 used by c3 that morphologically [strict] is a Lojbanic lujvo built from predicates metaphor/tanru l4 The morphology is according to Lojban grammar rules; as such, the word(s) c1 must end with vowels and in fact must exactly follow the morphology of brivla (and, moreover, lujvo; else, they would not be morphologically correct lujvo). l1 is essentially c1 modulo meaning and exact syntactic operation. The other terbri of lujvo (namely, l2 and l3) are not useful for names. See also: jvosmicme for a slight generalization, brivlasmicme for a greater generalization thereof.
cimjvo
lujvo l1 is an implicitly metaphorical lujvo with meaning l2 and arguments l3 built from metaphor l4. Used to refer to metaphorical lujvo that do not contain any -pev- rafsi (for “pe'a”). The word “cimjvo” is itself an example of cimjvo. Synonym of “cimjvo” with explicit metaphor: “pevycimjvo”.
