fu'ivla x1 is a polyform/polyplet/polyomino/polyabolo/polyiamond (etc.) composed of parts/'tile' polytope x2 arranged in (finite) unified shape/pattern x3 in ambient space x4 and subject to rules/restrictions/conditions x5 The number arrangement and rules may be as generic/vague as desired. The number of polytope 'tiles' used can be specified in the third of fifth terbri as desired; the polytopes used need not all be the same, nor regular, so long as the arrangement is meaningful and possible. One of the main differences between rectangular polyplets and polyominoes is that polyominoes cannot have their polytope tiles touching only at their vertices whereas polyplets can (thus, polyominoes are a subset of the rectangular polyplets); this difference can be specified in the final terbri. A tiling of a space may be considered to be an infinite polyform, but that is rather pathological and we can reasonably assume that polyforms referenced by this word will be finite. The polyform is considered to be a unified whole entity. The ambient space is usually going to be the Euclidean space of the same dimension as the polytopes (and the former dimension cannot be exceeded by the latter except in the marginal case of lowerdimensional (id est: hyperplanar) arrangements, in which case parallel crosssections are really being considered); this space determines the rigidmotion/symmetry isomorphisms of various polyforms (Z and S tetraminoes are nonisomorphic under rigidmotion in the Euclidean plane but are so isomorphic in Euclidean 3space). The ambient space also determines the expression of (and indeed the 'allowed') polytopes: spherical geometry allows for digons to be arranged so as to form a polyform, but Euclidean 2space prohibits such objects from the set of possible polygons. The default polytope will probably be a 2dimensional square; thus the default ambient space will likely be Euclidean 2space. See also: karda, korfaipletomino

caksova
fu'ivla x_{1} is a bird/reptile egg (not simply the gamete) consisting of yolk x_{2}, white x_{3} and shell x_{4} of species x_{5} (default chicken). Used particularly to refer to eggs that humans tend to eat, particularly chicken eggs, which is why the species place comes so late. Places for the major parts of the egg are included to make terms for "egg yolk" "egg white" and "egg shell".


dekyki'otenfa
lujvo x_{1}=t_{1} is the exponential result of base 10000 (myriad) multiplied by x_{2}=d_{2}=k_{2} of yllion(s) (default 1), to power/exponent x_{3}=t_{2} (default 2). yllion is a proposal from Donald Knuth for the terminology and symbols of an alternate decimal superbase system. Myllion(s)(x3=2), byllion (x3=4), tryllion (x3=8), quadryllion (x3=16) and so on. See also: myriad (=suzdekyki'o).

djecacrytcika
lujvo x_{1} (number) is the hour/hour notation of the day, of event/state x_{2}, in system x_{3}. djedi zei cacra zei tcika. As default, the number x_{1} is counted from the first hour of the day. See ti'u'a for BAI. ex.) li so cu djecacrytcika lo nu lo trene cu cliva kei u'y ty cy (The train departs at nine o'clock UTC.)


jbovla
lujvo x_{1} is a defined Lojban word, considered as a word as per Lojban's grammar, with meaning/role x_{2} In Lojban, particles such as "lo", "ku" etc. are considered to be words, whereas they may not be considered so according to other standards (for example, as "lo" and "ku" cannot appear in isolation, they are arguably closer to clitics than independent words). See also jbokravla (native Lojban word) and valsi.

le'elkai
fu'ivla x_{1} is/are the thing(s) described/named with property x_{2} by the speaker, who thinks this is contextually enough information for the listener to understand what are x_{1}'s referent(s) This predicate is intended to be the predicate equivalent of le (or at least to one of the interpretations thereof), so that «lo le'elkai be lo ka broda» is equivalent to «le broda». See also le, lemkai.


lutnilcla
lujvo x_{1}=n_{1} is the length of path x_{2}=p_{1}=c_{1} between x_{3}=p_{2} and x_{4}=p_{3} defined by points x_{5}=p_{4} (set) where the distance is on scale x_{6}=n_{2}=c_{3} Paths are 1D, so clani2 is derived. Cf. lijnilcla

preri
experimental gismu x_{1} is a nonbinarygendered parent of x_{2}; x_{1}, which does not subscribe/follow the gender binary (could be hermaphroditic, intersex, asexual, nongendered, transgender, etc.), begets/sires/acts parentally toward x_{2}; [not necessarily biological] Specifies rirni so as to be coequal to but neither patfu nor mamta. See also: dinti, rirni, mamta, patfu, nunmu.


ronte
experimental gismu x_{1} is a rodent [can be a member of eutherian mammal Rodentia; semantic broadening might subjectively generalize the concept somewhat] of subtaxon/type/genus/species/breed/variety x_{2} gismu version of: ratcnrodentia, rontnrodentia. Meant for any rodent in general (more general than ratcu, smacu). Semantic broadening may allow for any "small, scurrying mammal" to be so named. For the subjective generalization of concept to any "small scurrying mammal" made explicit, unambiguous, and clear: rontysmimabru.


tasmi
experimental gismu x_{1} is the way or manner in which activity/event x_{2} is done/happens Lojban has always been lacking a gismu for "x1 is the manner of event x2" or similar. Later, tai started to be used for it, and then, since a BAI needs a brivla (usually a gismu) to be based on, they invented tamsmi. So tasmi is a true brivla for tai, the BAI of tasmi. Cf. tai, tamsmi


tolpanra
lujvo x_{1} contrastswith/isdistinguishedfrom/issetapartfrom x_{2} in property/aspect x_{3} Things are parallel, analogous or equivalent in some property when they share that property, not when they differ in it, so the te panra has to be the property which they share and makes them parallel. When the focus is on a property that they don't share, the things are said to contrast in that property, they are not parallel in it. See also panra.


valslinku'i
fu'ivla x_{1} is a slinku'i word Note: for obvious reasons, zo will probably not work here. You probably want zoi to quote x_{1}. A slinku'i word form looks like a stage4 fu'ivla, but would be ambiguous when following certain cmavo, so it is disallowed. For more see http://mw.lojban.org/index.php?title=lo_valslinku%27i_cu_mo. See also valrtosmabru.
