panra
gismu x_{1} parallels x_{2} differing only in property x_{3} (ka; jo'u/fa'u term) by standard/geometry x_{4}. Also: x_{1} is parallel to x_{2}, x_{3} is the only difference between x_{1} and x_{2} (= terpanra for reordered places); x_{1} and x_{2} are alike/similar/congruent. A parallel involves extreme close similarity/correspondence across the entirety of the things being compared, generally involving multiple properties, with focus placed on one or a small number of differences. See also pa'a, mintu, simsa, girzu, vrici.


pacna
gismu rafsi: pa'a x_{1} hopes/wishes for/desires x_{2} (event), expected likelihood x_{3} (01); x_{1} hopes that x_{2} happens. Also: x_{1} is hopeful of x_{2}; x_{2} will hopefully occur, as hoped for by x_{1}; the value of x_{3} is a subjective estimate of likeliness according to x_{1}, and is the basic determinant of whether pacna means 'hope' or 'wish' or 'expect': hoping for objects/states with negligible expectation is "wishing"; if the state is plausibly likely, it is "hoping"; when the probability is subjectively near 1, the attitude is described as "expecting"; the value will usually be expressed using inexact numbers ("li piso'u" to "li piro"); wish (= sotpa'a), hope (= sorpa'a), expect (= sojypa'a). See also djica.
