mei'o
experimental cmavo Elidable terminator for selma'o MEIhE (which turns any number of sumti into a selbri-unit) Needed to close a MEIhE expression to resume adding sumti to the parent bridi.
xo'e'o'e
experimental cmavo elliptical/unspecified/vague single-symbol (general) Might mean either bo'e (BY) or xo'e (PA), or any other single-symbol selma'o elliptical.
xu'au
experimental cmavo extent of truth As described here: http://balance.wiw.org/~jkominek/lojban/9511/msg00430.html, where the proposed word is xi'i and the selma'o is XI
pevyselma'o
lujvo x1 is the part-of-speech / grammatical class of word x2, which means or has function x3 in language x4. = vlagenkle; Generalization of selma'o, to be usable for non-cmavo and words from other languages. See ma'oi
vlagenkle
lujvo x1 is the part-of-speech / grammatical class of word x2, which means or has function x3 in language x4. = pevyselma'o; Generalization of selma'o, to be usable for non-cmavo and words from other languages. See ma'oi
foi'e
experimental cmavo GOI attachment modifier: allows a cmavo of selma'o GOI (which must follow immediately) to be attached to a selbri This word must (ignoring quotes, etc.) be preceded by a selbri (to which it immediately attaches, even in sumti) and must be followed by a member of selma'o GOI (ignoring erasure, etc.). All other semantics and syntax of the GOI construct remains the same, it just applies to the selbri immediately prior to this word, rather than a sumti. See also: po'oi.
mau'e
experimental cmavo UI conversion start quote; converts grammatical Lojban text to cmavo of selma'o UI Internal text/utterance must be grammatical and Lojbanic; output is some unspecified emotion relating to/specific to/associated with the referent of quoted text. The construct as a whole operates/behaves as UI. See also: mau'o.
mau'o
experimental cmavo UI conversion end quote (elidable terminator); converts grammatical Lojban text to cmavo of selma'o UI Internal text/utterance must be grammatical and Lojbanic; output is some unspecified emotion relating to/specific to/associated with the referent of quoted text. The construct as a whole operates/behaves as UI. See also: mau'e.
vonma'o
lujvo x1 is a tense word/cmavo/particle of grammatical class (selma'o) x2 with meaning/function x3 in usage/language x4 See also: caljveteima'o
xi'i
experimental cmavo extent of truth Proposed here: http://balance.wiw.org/~jkominek/lojban/9511/msg00430.html . See xu'au for a synonymous word (other than tentatively and temporarily belonging to a different selma'o) that is proposed in order to avoid multiple definitions for "xi'i".
zi'a
experimental cmavo nonce-word indicator; indicates previous word is nonce-creation and may be nonstandard Equivalent to za'e but in selma'o UI. See also za'e, pe'a, xo'o
zifma'o
lujvo x1 is is a free word (word which can be freely inserted into or deleted from a sentence without making it ungrammatical), with meaning/function x2 in usage (language) x3 This corresponds to selma'o UI in Lojban.
bu'ai
experimental cmavo abstractor: abstractor to create logically quantified selbri variable to be used in predicate logic of third or higher order. zo'e and da are a constant and a bound variable of predicate logic of first order respectively; co'e and bu'a are a selbri constant and a bound selbri variable of predicate logic of second order respectively; in order to express predicate logic of third or higher order, it is essential to have selbri that treat selbri variables in the domain of all selbri of second order. su'u and bu'ai in selma'o NU can compose respectively a selbri constant and a bound selbri variable in the domain of all selbri of second order. In the case that bu'ai takes plural number of selbri variables, connect them with ju'e or something. Higher order is also possible by nesting bu'ai. Example: su'o bu'ai xe'u kei su'o bu'a ro da zo'u bu'ai da bu'a (This xe'u is an abstraction-variable-indicator-selbrisle used in order to put a word of selma'o NU in prenex.) See also su'u, bu'a; xe'u.
noi'a
experimental cmavo PA incidental relative clause; attaches to a PA number/numeral/digit with the ke'a referring to that PA number/numeral/digit. It attaches to the last mentioned PA, which can be only a single digit within a number rather than the entire number itself (if it has digit length greater than one in some base). Thus, beware of grouping. Confer: poi'a, jau'au. The attachment of this word to the immediately preceding word can be ovverriden by the usage of xe'au, which begins bracketing together an utterance/subexpression that will be considered to be the single and whole referent of the clause introduced by this word, wthe utterance of which also finishes the bracket. There is a proposal to expand the attachment of this word to any word spoken in a mekso utterance (rather than only members of selma'o PA), including members of selma'o VUhU, etc.
poi'a
experimental cmavo PA restrictive relative clause; attaches to a PA number/numeral/digit with the ke'a referring to that PA number/numeral/digit.

xe'au
experimental cmavo mekso clausal referent bracket initializer Works with words of selma'o NOIhA. Within a mekso expression, any sequence of words/any subexpression between this word and the (immediate/very) next unmatched member of selma'o NOIhA are consolidated into (one whole and indivisible (for the sake of the clause) entity which acts as reference of the clause introduced by the same member of NOIhA, thus overriding the default attachment of NOIhA cmavo to the word immediately preceding them in a mekso expression. A member of NOIhA is considered "unmatched" if and only if the number of intervening additional uses of this word is less than or equal to the number of members of NOIhA uttered after the usage of this word being considered. The bracketed expression is considered to be a whole and single unit that can only be referenced together and in its single entirety; the bracketed expression is considered to be formal and remains unevaluated for the purposes of the reference/clause- thus, any reference to its evaluated result must be made by modifying ke'a. See also: noi'a, poi'a.
