ra'oi
experimental cmavo single-word rafsi quote; quotes a single word delimited by pauses (in speech) or whitespace (in writing) and treats it as a rafsi Useful for quoting rafsi that aren't legal words on their own. See http://mw.lojban.org/papri/unspeakable_rafsi_gotcha for details.

"kla" is an affix from the full verb "klama".
ra'oi gau rafsi zo gasnu

ma'oi
experimental cmavo selma'o quote; quotes a word (a cmavo) and uses it to name a selma'o. Example: ma'oi coi is equivalent to COI. See also ra'oi.
do'oi
experimental cmavo generic single-word generic vocative marker; identifies intended listener with a single, possibly non-Lojban word, delimited by pauses (in speech) or by whitespace (in writing). The intent is that it is allowed everywhere in the grammar where DOI and COI are. See also zo'oi, la'oi, me'oi, ra'oi. Not similar to co'oi. Equivalent to doi la'oi.
zifyvlaklerafsi
lujvo x1 (quote) is a zi'evla/fu'ivla categorizer particle/morpheme/unit with meaning/indicating category x2, having properties x3, and that is appended in zi'evla (full word) x4, in language x5 Applies to any categorizer particle/word/morpheme/lexeme/string/unit; does not necessarily have to be a single jborafsi (even in Lojban zi'evla). Does not include the hyphen letter, nor the rest of the word (including any letter prefixed thereto if the rest of the word would otherwise start with a vowel). Quote the empty string (lu li'u) if the explicit categorizer is absent; in general, the quote will likely be improper in Lojban. See also: zifyvlavelvi'u, ra'oi, zi'evla, fu'ivla
zei'ei'au
experimental cmavo begin quote that is converted into rafsi, distributing lujvo-glue between quoted words Terminated by zei'oi. Begins a quote of a grammatical utterance. Between each word in the utterance, zei is to be interpreted and any grouping that might be applied is left-grouping. In other words, zei is distributed left-groupingly between each word; each word is treated on its own, individually; the quote is not treated as a whole. The final word is interpreted to have zei after it as well (this is a quirk of zei'oi), thus the quote is a string of rafsi, left-groupingly considered to be a rafsi. In order to end the lujvo formed with such a quote, follow it by co'e. This word compactifies large zei-clauses/-statements. For the perhaps generally more useful, if slightly more ambiguous, quote marker that treats the quote as a whole entity and converts it singly and wholly into a rafsi (rather than a rafsi string, as is done by this word), see: zei'ei. This word works as zei'ei does in all other regards (including as a marker for a new word (specifically a lujvo) unless preceded by zei or possibly by a standalone and otherwise ungrammatical rafsi). For the purpose of quoting with ra'oi, the result of a zei'ei'au-quote is treated as a single rafsi.
