me'au
experimental cmavo Convert abstract predicate sumti back to predicate Has an inverse: me'ei. Essentially synonymous with ckaji. Differences: ckaji2 is unary whereas the me'au-predicate can have any arity; me'au is in ME.
.i ko mi tavla zo'e naku caku .i .eidai do co'e ca lo nu me'au lo te go'i
Don't come to me now with that. You should have said something when it originally happened.
me'ei
experimental cmavo Article for abstract predicate sumti. Turns a selbri into an abstraction with all open places filled by {ce'u}. Has an inverse: me'au
rolsixu
fu'ivla For every x in x1, there exists a y in x2 such that x me'au x3 y; For every y in x2 there exists an x in x1 such that x me'au x3 y. Cf. me'au. The lojban definition is highly preferred. For example, "lo so'imei poi loi so'i kulnu cu rolsixu ke'a lo ka kulnu" translates to "many people of many nations" in a precise sense.
emna
fu'ivla x1 (n-ary property) is applied to sumti x2, x3, ... Can have infinite places (specifically n+1, if x1 is an n-ary property). brivla parallel of me'au.
kai'u
experimental cmavo abstractor: x1 (x2, ...) are such that they satisfy [bridi], binding to the open {ce'u} slots. See also me'au, emna, ka and ce'u
me'oi
experimental cmavo non-Lojban brivla Quick way to borrow foreign words into Lojban. Also known as "stage-0 fu'ivla". Equivalent to me'au la'e zo'oi. See mu'oi.
no'oi
experimental cmavo Selbri incidental relative clause; attaches to a selbri with the ke'a being 'me'ei the attached selbri' Cf. me'ei, me'au, noi, po'oi.
po'oi
experimental cmavo selbri restrictive relative clause; attaches to a selbri with the ke'a being "me'ei the attached-selbri" Cf. me'ei, me'au, no'oi, poi.
namcixu
fu'ivla For mo'e x4 x in x1 there exist mo'e x5 y in x2 such that x me'au x3 y; for mo'e x6 y in x2 there exist mo'e x7 x in x1 such that x me'au x3 y. Cf. me'au, mo'e. Somewhat supercedes rolsixu, in that rolsixu is namcixu for x4=x6=li ro, x5=x7=li su'o.
mu'oi
experimental cmavo delimited non-Lojban selbri-unit Similar to me'oi but requires delimiters, to allow quotation of multiple words or words with glottal-stops. In other words, me'oi:mu'oi :: zo'oi:zoi :: la'oi:la'o . Equivalent to me'au la'e zoi.
ka'ei
experimental cmavo abstractor: predicate abstractor. x1 is the predicate expressed by [bridi], using bo'a, bo'e, etc for variables. Identical in meaning to an n-ary ka, but with lambda-variables bound to bo'a/bo'e/bo'i/bo'o/bo'u (bo'ai for additional variables) instead of ce'u (which may still be used for "next place"). This is mainly for convenience, to avoid having to assign pro-sumti to ce'u variables either with goi or ce'ai. See me'ei, me'au, cei'e, ckaji, ckini
ce'oi
experimental cmavo argument list separator: acts as a comma between arguments in an argument list supplied to a function. "ce'oi" is the word of choice to separate the arguments in bridi3. Using ce'o there has obvious limitations when the selbri actually calls for a sequence. Obviously, ce'oi has issues too if the selbri can accept an argument list, but this can be circumvented more readily with ke...ke'e brackets than it can with ce'o. Consider ".i lo ka broda cu selbri fi ko'a ce'o ko'e". Without inspecting the type requirements of broda and the respective types of ko'a and ko'e, one cannot determine the meaning of the bridi. Furthermore, if one accepts non-static typing of sumti places, multiple correct answers can be given for a question asking what is the bridi1. This would create ambiguity that is otherwise resolved by "ce'oi". See also ka, du'u, me'au
