kazra
experimental gismu x1 is quantum mechanical in property x2 with behavior/traits/result x3; x1 demonstrates quantum weirdness/quantum mechanical nature. For "quantumness", use kamkazra. Proposed short rafsi: -kaz-. See also: kantu, namra, klaso, slabu, mairsau (physically behaves expectedly/familiarly, normally; displays no physical weirdness/exoticness), cizra, maircizra (physically behaves unexpectedly; displays physical weirdness/exoticness), cizyfau (exotic event/phenomenon/signal), cizmai ((physically) exotic material/matter/substance), cizykantu (new/exotic/unknown/unfamiliar particle/quanton), cizratni (exotic atom/bound state), rartni.
mapra
experimental gismu x1 is a quantity of fluff of composition/structure/characterization/substance x2; x1 is fluffy/airy/soft/fuzzy in texture Visual and tactile. Most likely is malleable, but this word has no such implications inherently; porousness or foaminess is likewise not implied. Might also include "cushiony", "cotton-like", "wool-like"; a fractal nature might be present. For fuzziness: not necessarily hairy or furry, but must be soft; not bristly (which implies stiffness and hardness). See also: ranti, rufsu, xutla, panje, dilnu, mapni, sunla, fonmo, jduli, pesxu, marji.
pau'a'u
experimental cmavo mekso operator: part of number/projection (one sense); the X2 part of X1 X1 can be a tensor, in which case the operator applies entry-wise; X1 can be a function, in which case the operator applies pointwise. It extracts the part of the number that belongs to the structure X2 united with the singleton 0. X2 = R implies "real part"; X2 = i*R implies "imaginary part"; X2 = R+ implies "positive part"; X2 = R- implies "negatige part". If X1 has no explicit value/projection in/along X2, then the output is 0. If 0 is X1 or X2, then the output is 0. X1 should really be a structure, not just a set.
pi'eitci
fu'ivla x1 (the acidity/hydrogen activity of a solution) measures x2 in pH according to scale (si'o) x3 using logarithmic base x4 (default: ten) x1 should not be an object/solution itself (that would be sumti-raising), but rather its acidity/basicness/hydrogen activity; in theory, something other than hydrogen activity could be measured (in which case, it would no longer truly be pH but, for some substance X, actually pX). x3 should specify a reference acidity and its associated pH value (for example: pure water has a pH of exactly 7), the meaning of changing the pH by 1, and in which direction basicness (xor acidity) increases (traditionally: toward positive infinity is representative of relativelt increasingly basicness); x2 can be any real number (not just restricted to the interval from 0 to fourteen), so long as it is pure (dimensionless).
rindo
experimental gismu x1 is/reflects/pertains to Native American/Amerindian/First Nations person(s) ['race'; generalized] culture/status in aspect x2, of subtype/particular subcategory/group/tribe x3, by definition/standard/societal classification system x4 Makes no implications of relative status etc. See also: tutle, kapli, maska, xispo, abniena, niengatu, nienke'a, ancinabe, tsalagi, siksika.
toi'e
experimental cmavo start UI-applicative metalinguistic UI-parenthetical Presently (without this word), there is no "official" way to apply a UI cmavo to another (instead, they merely express simultaneous emotions pertaining to the relevant construct). This word begins a parenthetical which can contain UI cmavo and applies these cmavo as a string of UI to the immediately previous UI cmavo metalinguistically (as if the external UI is/are any other type of word which can be acted upon by UI). An omitted UI (external or internal) in this case is equivalent to ge'e. Since the produced parenthetical functions as UI, nested or subsequent such parentheticals operate on it as it operates on external UI cmavo. For details on grouping and application, see koi'e. See also: toi'o.
valrxazdomru
fu'ivla x1 is a xazdmru word Note: for obvious reasons, zo will probably not work here. You probably want zoi or zo'oi to quote x1. ¶ A xazdmru word is a putative zi'evla that will turn into a lujvo-form if the syllabic consonants are filled in with y, thus xaz,dm,ru → xazdymru (xazdo zei mruli). No words of these shapes have ever been defined or used in the corpus. These shapes are banned following a proposal and can't be entered into jbovlaste. See vlaturge'a, valslinku'i, valrtosmabru
di'ei
experimental cmavo pro-sumti and sumyzmico: an elliptical/unspecified value which does not necessarily obey the default setting for the corresponding terbri that is explicitly specified in the definition of the word; has some value which makes bridi true Some brivla have default specifications for certain terbri; when any explicit sumti is omitted from filling these terbri (an implicit zo'e fills them instead), the meaning of that sumti is interpreted in accordance with the default specification; it is reasonable to suppose that an explicit zo'e used in order to fill such terbri will likewise obey the default specification in its interpretation. Thus, there is no simple way to reference the "general" elliptical/unspecified value for these sumti, other than by using this word. zo'e typically is interpreted as meaning any value of some general and unspecified set of potential sumti referents, modulated by context and the need to make the statement true; in the case of an explicit default setting of a terbri by the definition of a word, di'ei takes on this general and unspecified meaning, effectively ignoring the default (although it can take on the value of that default (doing so, simply, is just not necessary)); when no default is specified for the terbri in the definition, this word has the same meaning as zo'e. See also: di'au, di'oi, zmico.
dinso
experimental gismu x1 is a dinosaur [very general: any ancient quasi-reptilian vertebrate] of type x2 living in era x3. A gismu version of dinsauru; contrast with reksa. The use of this word is not strictly only relevant to members of clade Dinosauria, although it does include them (and, specifically, birds); its referent might include pterosaurs, icthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, mosasaurs, dimetrodons, avemetatarsaliads, and perhaps even synapsids (in other words, any ancient quasi-reptilian vertebrate). As such, it is a qualitative word that bears no particular or strong attention or respect to genealogy or academic classification of these animals. Basically, any ancient animal the name of which ends in "-saur" can be so-described. Proposed short rafsi: -dis-. See also: rexsa, ketslau, ikfiio, disrmuzo, plesiio.
fancysuksa
lujvo function f1 is discontinuous/abrupt/sharply changes locally (in output) on/at s2 (set), with abruptness of type x3 (default: 1) s2 should be a set within some open subset of definition of f1, or a set on which f1 is not defined at all. For x3, an argument of n (number) corresponds to a differentiability class of order n to which f1 does NOT belong at points in set s2; notice that such an n makes no implications about the truth value of f1 belonging to any given differentiability classes of order m < n, but f1 cannot belong to differentiability classes of order m > n; n = 0 implies that the function is not continuous on that set (lack of definition there is sufficient for such a claim); a function that is discontinuous or which has a cusp or sharp "corner" in its graph/plot (meaning that its derivative is discontinuous) at points in s2 will have n ≤ 1. For now at least, n can be a nonnegative integer; generalizations may eventually be defined. This lujvo is not perfectly algorithmic/predictable.
ge'ei
experimental cmavo metasyntactic variable marker Explicitly marks the preceding variable, e.g. ko'a ko'e, lerfu-strings, and/or broda series as being metasyntactic: i.e. having no specific meaning or referent and merely used to demonstrate syntax or hypothetical scenarios. Automatically unassigns the variable from any previous assignment. May also be used for pronouns like mi or do or dei. This is useful to refer to mi as a 'first-person pronoun' rather than the actual speaker themself, for example, when giving the definition of mi'o: 'mi ge'ei jo'u do ge'ei', makes it clear that the speaker doesn't literally mean the speaker and the listener, but are using mi and do metasyntactically. Similarly, one might define mi as 'lo cusku be dei ge'ei'. See ge'ai, da'o
kanpe
experimental gismu x1 expects/looks for the occurence of x2 (event), expected likelihood x3 (0-1, default {li} {so'a} i.e. near 1); x1 subjectively evaluates the likelihood of x2 (event) to be x3. The value of x3 is a subjective estimate of likeliness according to x1, 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 x3 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"); not-necessarily desirous wish, not necessarily desirous hope. See also ba'a, djica, pacna, lakne, cunso.
nakcei
lujvo c1 is a god (specifically, male deity) of people(s)/religion c2 with dominion over c3 [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.
nulpa'a
lujvo p1 expects/looks for the occurence of p2 (event), expected likelihood p3 (0-1); p1 subjectively evaluates the likelihood of p2 (event) to be p3. The value of x3 is a subjective estimate of likeliness according to x1, and is the basic determinant of whether nulpa'a means something like "hope" or "wish" or "expect", although nulpa'a never carries the connotation of desire; for that connotation see pacna. nulpa'a with x3 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"); not-necessarily desirous wish, not necessarily desirous hope. See also ba'a, djica, pacna, lakne, cunso.
nunmu
experimental gismu x1 is a non-binary-gendered humanoid person [not necessarily adult] Umbrella term for any non-man non-woman (in some aspect/consideration/standard) humanoid person; possibly includes: transgenders, people of no gender/sex, people of indeterminate gender/sex, hermaphrodites, intersexed people, bisexuals (one sense), possibly people with sex chromosomes other than (specifically and fully) XX or XY, and anyone who does not subscribe to or fit within the strict gender/sex binary (of a given society). As such, it is a specification of rempre/remna/prenu co-equal with ninmu and nanmu; it generalized some of the aforementioned cases. Word dispreferred in metaphor/example as sexist; use instead remna or prenu. See also: ninmu, nanmu, remna, prenu, makcu, bersa, tixnu, paznu, nakni, fetsi, dinti, nanla, nixli, verba, vepre
praperi
fu'ivla x1 is a strict/proper sub-x2 [structure] in/of x3; x2 is a structure and x1 and x3 are both examples of that structure x2 such that x1 is entirely contained within x3 (where containment is defined according to the standard/characteristics/definition of x2; but in any case, no member/part/element that belongs to x1 does not also belong to x3) but there is some member/part/element of x3 that does not belong to x1 in the same way. If x2 is a (sub)set, then x1 is a proper subset of x3; if x2 is a mathematical/algebraic (sub)group, then x1 is a proper subgroup of x3; etc. Can also be used for describing proper sub-lakes (such as Lake Michigan), proper super-selma'o, and other non-mathmetical usages. x3 is a proper super-x2 of/with x1. Biological taxa, if comparable, are usually/hypothetically proper. See also: klesi, cmeta.
