experimental cmavo scalar / attitudinal question: how very...? Essentially asks for NAI/CAI. For selbri/sumtcita, the full range of NAI/CAI may be asked for; see http://mw.lojban.org/papri/zipcpi:_scalar_modifiers and pai'e. For attitudinals, it is limited to ru'e/na'oi/sai/cai or combinations thereof (use pei to ask for the full range).
experimental cmavo Indicator for moderate or normal attitudinal intensity Used to indicate the "default" intensity of attitudinals, the intensity that is implied when for example using a bare "ui" (which is in-between "sai" and "ru'e"). Useful mostly together with pei. Derived from cnano.
experimental cmavo replace recent mistakenly uttered text The lo'ai ... sa'ai ... le'ai replacement construct asks the listener to replace the text after lo'ai with the text after sa'ai. The order sa'ai ... lo'ai ... le'ai is also allowed, and either or both parts can be omitted and thus left up to context. When both parts are omitted, the word le'ai on its own indicates that a mistake was made while leaving all the details up to context. It is also possible to attach SAI to a le'ai construct: le'ai dai (or le'ai da'oi ko'a) indicates that someone else made a mistake; le'ai pei asks whether someone else made a mistake; and sai, ru'e and cu'i can be used to indicate the importance of the substitution. Furthermore, le'ai nai can be used to explicitly deny mistakes instead of acknowledging them (compare "sic").
