experimental gismu x1 is a gesture/facial expression/body part motion/body language/expressive (nonverbal or nonvocal) feature/microexpression/stature/posture/sign/body signal [nonverbal expression made using only one's body parts and items on one's immediate person as extensions of the body in order to communicate; possibly nonlinguistic/extralinguistic] that conveys/expresses thought/emotion/command/idea x2 (nu/si'o; possibly text and other types) made using body part/utensil/object/at locus x3 in/by motion/action/means x4 Must be body-oriented; any other object involved is simply for the matter of convenience and acts as an extension of the body (and thus must be on the performer's immediate person at or near the locus of the gesture). Body language, posturing, and stature are usually considered to be nonlocalized (body-general), although they need not be (and technically are not in general). Must be externally visible and/or internally sensed. Any non-body-part utensil/item (including clothing) must function as an extension of the body in the gesture. Need not be conscious or performed by a person (note that agent/performer is not mentioned in this definition); can, but need not, be accompanied by vocalizations (not necessarily linguistic), but the gesture itself is not primarily noise-producing. Might include sign language words or cheremes, although a more explicit word for linguistically organized and “full” cheremes is preferred (and especially for the sign language as a whole). x1 is possibly best typed by nu and/or si'o. x4 might be best expressed as an event; for example, it could be "the event of the right hand touching the chest near the heart, with fist clenched" for a salute, whereas/wherein x3 would be merely the fist/hand (and the chest near the heart). Use cocygau for: x1 (agent) gestures; x1 agentively/actively makes gesture x2, communicating x3, performed with body part(s) x4 in motion x5. Proposed short rafsi: -coc-.
lujvo The date [day,week,month,year] x1=d1=k1 is recurrence/repetition of the date [day,week,month,year] of the first event x2=d2, for the x3=k3'rd time, in system x3. detri zei krefu. krefu2 corresponds to the date of the first event, but the place is omitted for simplicity. x4 may indicate the system of recurrence: a day of the week/month; a day/month of the year (anniversary); a year of the century etc. ex.) li renopavo pi'e pano pi'e re detke'u lo nu la gandis noi banli cu jbena kei li pavomu lo pa nanca be fi la gregoris (October 2 of 2014 is Mahatma Gandhi's 145th birthday counted by year of Gregorian calendar.)
lujvo x1 swears / takes an oath, promising/asserting x2 (abstraction), invoking fate x3 (abstraction) x2 could be a nu-event or ka-action that x1 intends to happen or perform, or a du'u-proposition that x1 swears the truth of. x3 is a fate (typically bad) that x1 invokes on themself should they break the oath. tu'a can be used to raise x3, to swear by a treasured possession (implied fate being loss of that possession), or a deity (implied fate being the wrath of said deity). See dimna, maldimna, nupre, cevni, dapma
experimental cmavo reset bridi-level to zero Auto-inserts all necessary terminators to reset to the top-level bridi of the sentence (i.e. everything that i would insert except the last vau). This is useful if you have opened multiple NU/NOI subclauses, and just want to close them all to add more sumti, terms, or a xoi clause to the main bridi without using a bunch of terminators. // May also be used with UI-cmavo. UI-cmavo placed immediately after i'au would scope over the entire sentence. This is useful for attaching attitudinals as afterthoughts, without having to close the entire sentence manually with the right number of vaus. See ji'au, fu'e, fu'o.
fu'ivla x1 wears 'on' (Japanese term) on x2 due to x3; x1 is thankful/feels obligation/owes to x2 due to x3; x2 is kind/grants favor/offers 'on' to x1 in x3; x1 has unpayable debt to x2 for x3; x2 is an 'onjin' (benefactor, Japanese term) In future lojban ckire might be equated with onckire and {nu ckire} with Japanese concept of 'on'.
