cmeta
experimental gismu x1 is meta to/an example of x2 that describes such an object/concept/notion/system/topic/etc., being meta in property/aspect x3, and which has features x4, governed by/considered in system/considerations/epistemology/theory x5; x1 is meta (a particular type of abstraction of x2 so as to apply to itself in some sense); x1 is an/a piece of/an example of x2 that applies fractally thereto Does not (necessarily) mean "beyond", "after", "beside"; in some (rather pictoral) senses, these meanings may be necessary but not sufficient for being meta in this sense; thus, "metaphysics" should not be translated using this word. x1 is an object, notion, topic, system, etc. which applies to x2 but which is itself an example thereof; for example, the meanings of the words "metalinguistics" and "metadata" are meta in this sense. It is not necessarily directly self-referential, but could be fractally applicative. x1 is an X that is about (another) X; x1 is an abstraction of X so as to apply to X. x1 does not necessarily abstract [from] (in one sense), but is abstract to, x2. See also: xulta (generalized/weaker), sucta.
dau'a
experimental cmavo gafyzmico: Reset all default specifications of immediately previous word to official definition specifications hereinafter (permanently) Restores all default specifications in the (terbri) structure of immediately previously uttered word so that implicit/omitted zo'e and di'au that may fill the terbri of that word are predefined/specific in reference and do indeed necessarily agree with the default setting explicitly specified in the discourse-external/“official” definition of the word. The terbri are not filled by this word. Usage is only meaningful for a brivla with at least one terbri (regardless of being explicitly filled or otherwise). In a tanru or other complicated construct, only the most recent word undergoes this terbri default restoration (not every term in the construct). A selbri converted to a sumti by gadri has the x1 terbri filled for the purposes of this word, but the default setting of that terbri is so restored all the same; likewise is the case for terbri accessed by be or bei; seltau in the main level of a sumti are filled by the gadri as well for the purposes of this word. Affects all future uses of the word (permanent), until the end of the text/conversation or explicitly undone in some manner. See also: doi'a, de'au, zmico.
de'au
experimental cmavo gafyzmico: Cancellation (permanent) of all defaults in immediately previous word Cancels/overrides/ignores/"kills" all defaults (default specifications) in the (terbri) structure of immediately previously uttered word so that implicit/omitted zo'e and di'au that may fill the terbri of that word are general in potential reference (modulo context) and do not necessarily agree with the default setting explicitly specified in the discourse-exterior/“official” definition of the word. The terbri are not filled by this word. Usage is only meaningful for a brivla with at least one terbri (regardless of being explicitly filled or otherwise). In a tanru or other complicated construct, only the most recent word undergoes this terbri default override (not every term in the construct). A selbri converted to a sumti by gadri has the x1 terbri filled for the purposes of this word, but the default setting of that terbri is so overridden all the same; likewise is the case for terbri accessed by be or bei; seltau in the main level of a sumti are filled by the gadri as well for the purposes of this word. Affects all future uses of the word (permanent), until the end of the text/conversation or explicitly undone in some manner. See also: dau'a, de'oi, zmico.
fau'au
experimental cmavo two-tier function map/assignment writer notation: X1 (ordered list, no repetitious terms) maps termwise-respectively to X2 (ordered list; may be repetitious but must have exactly as many terms as X1) So named because, in mathematical notation, the domain set of the function is written down in some order in its entirety and then, below it, the range of the function is written so that each image and preimage line up vertically with their appropriate/respective partner. Really useful when mapping from a countable set/object that is either human-small or in which the pattern is clear. Occasionally used for a more explicit form of notation for permutations (in which cycle decomposition is not necessarily as evident, but the structure as a how is, at least, explicit). The ith term of X1 is mapped to the ith term of X2; there is no knowledge of what happens to any value that is not term of list X1. Useful for lambda calculus.
xau'e'o
experimental cmavo mekso convention default specification/definition (explicit) This word is followed by a list of rules. The rules specify the convention by which mekso or mathematical expressions (of various kinds) are to be interpreted. Such conventions are taken to remain in effect until the end of the discourse, until repealed, or if the come to conflict with subsequent rules so marked; in the lattermost case, the subsequent rule takes precedent and the earlier rules that are in conflict with it are ignored only in the most minimal domain of application possible (for example, a rule saying "left composition of functions is denoted by "°" in all cases" could be followed by a rule saying "when a linear transformation can be represented by a matrix, left composition of two such functions is equivalent to left multiplication of their corresponding matrices and so their left composition may be represented simply by juxtaposition as is typical with/for multiplication" with result being that "°" is to be used for all left compositions of functions except when both functions being composed are linear transformations admitting matrix representations, in which case "°" could be used but adjacency alone is sufficient to denote their left composition). Collections of rules (ordered in increasing precedence) can be named and referenced by such name expressed instead of those rules at length (such as calling a (specific) rather simple set of rules defining the order of operations ".pemas."). See also: xau'o'o.
di'au
experimental cmavo pro-sumti and sumyzmico: discourse-interior default it (terbri-specific) Explicitly and emphatically references the specified default value of the relevant terbri as specified/designated by the discourse; thus, its value is context-dependent and subject to specification modifications. It does not necessarily reference the value defined "officially". (zo'e, implicit or explicit, may do so as well, but the use of this word implies some degree of a more deliberate choice to follow the default specification.) When a default of the terbri is not specified by the previous discourse (nor by the discourse-exterior "official" definition of the terbri if not specification modifications have been made previously), this word is equivalent to completely general and elliptical zo'e. See also: di'oi, di'ei.
di'oi
experimental cmavo pro-sumti & sumyzmico: discourse-exterior default it Explicitly and emphatically references the specified default value of the relevant terbri as given by "official" definitions (exterior to the discourse); this value ignores and is independent of any modifications made to the relevant default specification during the discourse. (zo'e, implicit or explicit, may do so as well, but the use of this word implies some degree of a more deliberate choice to follow the discourse-exterior default specification.) When a default is not specified by the definition of a word, this word is equivalent to completely general and elliptical zo'e. See also: di'au, di'ei, zmico.
funtiio
fu'ivla x1 (plural of ordered pairs) is an exhaustive set (possibly infinite) of inputs/outputs defining a unary function which yields result x3 when given input x2; x1(x2) = x3 "f(x) = z" == "fy funtiio xy fi zy". "lo ro se zilbri be lo ka ce'u sumji ce'u li pa" is a way to extract the input/output set of the relation "f(x) = x−1", so that you can use it as funtiio's x1. Using a la-name for referring to a function is also an option, for example "la .fankcyn. cu funtiio li re li ci". See also fancu, fancuka.
jirvi'odja
lujvo x1=v1=c1 is preserved food/feed/nutriment pickled/immersed in x2=j2. x2=j2 is salt (= silna), vinegar (= slami), alcohol (= xalka), sugar (= sakta), honey (= bicysakta), soy sauce (= sobysanso), bean paste (= furso'epesxu), mold paste (= mledi pesxu) and so on. jinru vitno cidja. See also slamystogau.
jvinjica'o
fu'ivla x1 is the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization; French: Organisation de l'aviation civile internationale, OACI) designation/result/standard/code for general subject type x2 (contextless default probably: airports) applied to specific case/entity/procedure/group/hub/terminus/location x3 according to rule/ICAO specification/publication x4 published by/according to mandating organization x5 (default: ICAO) x1 need not be a name-designation/code (it could be the result of any rule), although it likely will commonly be so. Possible examples of x2-filling sumti include: certain (international) airport code designations, air navigation procedures, etc.. For an airport (generalized)/hub that has such a specification, use {te jvinjica'o} or {te se jvinjica'o} (using the appropriate terbri for specifying the type of hub: tebri j2); for ICAO, consider using {xe jvinjica'o}. See also: jviso, jvinjiata.
mau'au
experimental cmavo mekso: conversion of operator/function to operand Must be followed by a function (meaning "f", not "f(x)" (which is a number)) or operator (such as "+"). Treats it formally and syntactically as a number so that it can be operated upon, such as by se'au or by a functional/operator (technical sense). Terminated by zai'ai; the pair essentially act as mathematical quotation marks. Also works on connectives and kei'i. Expressions may be complicated (such as with SE, NA, NAI, etc. modifying the string); perhaps one may even find a use for quoting relations (such as equality or element-hood) and/or some brivla or other cmavo. See also: kei'au.
mivyvelvicyvauro'i
lujvo x1=r1=vau1 is a rock cobtaining trace/remnant/fossil x2=vic4=vau2 of biological entity/organism x2=j1=vic3, with rock composition x4=r2 and from location x5=r3; x2 is the fossilized trace of organism x3 preserved in rock x1 Fossil x2 need not be a body (part), just a trace of an organism (scat, trail/footprint, etc.). Containment need not be total. The fossil container is necessarily a fossil rock (see mivyvelvicyvau for generalization to any container). The remnant can be "fresh", so long as it is found in rock. See also: rokybixmivborvelvi'u for not "fresh"/petrified/fossilized remains.
pi'eitci
fu'ivla x1 (the acidity/hydrogen activity of a solution) measures x2 in pH according to scale (si'o) x3 using logarithmic base x4 (default: ten) x1 should not be an object/solution itself (that would be sumti-raising), but rather its acidity/basicness/hydrogen activity; in theory, something other than hydrogen activity could be measured (in which case, it would no longer truly be pH but, for some substance X, actually pX). x3 should specify a reference acidity and its associated pH value (for example: pure water has a pH of exactly 7), the meaning of changing the pH by 1, and in which direction basicness (xor acidity) increases (traditionally: toward positive infinity is representative of relativelt increasingly basicness); x2 can be any real number (not just restricted to the interval from 0 to fourteen), so long as it is pure (dimensionless).
plankexu
fu'ivla x1 is the elementary unit (quantum) of angular momentum/half of Planck's reduced constant [id est: hbar/2 = h/(4 pi)] expressed in units x2 (default: unitless/dimensionless and so that it is equal to 1) in paradigm/system/metaphysics/universe x3 (default: this, our actual, physical universe) This unit is not equal to hbar itself, but half thereof; it is equal to the absolute value/magnitude of magnetic quantum number of an electron. In our world and in SI units, this quantity is approximately equal to: 5.27285863 * 10^{-35} (m^2)*kg/s. See also gravnutnoia, tcelerita, boltsemaku, avgadro, ocnerta, paulcna.
pupsu
experimental gismu x1 is a waterfall (geological and hydrological, semi-permanent feature) with source/flowing fluid x2 (fluid need not be water), with rock/terrain characteristics/grade (slope)/features x3 in potential (gravitational well/field) x4; mass/quantity of fluid x2 flows over feature x3 so as to fall /tumble down it (continuously) Despite the gloss, the waterfall need not constitute falling water specifically, just a falling-tumbling fluid. x3 might be (but is not necessarily strictly) a terrain feature underlying the flow of the fluid. Proposed short rafsi: -pup-. Confer: falri'e, jacfa'u, jacfalstu.
ratcnrodentia
obsolete fu'ivla x1 is a rodent [member of eutherian mammal Rodentia] of subtaxon/type/genus/species/breed/variety x2 Meant for any rodent in general (more general than ratcu, smacu). See also: ratcu, smacu, ronte. If ronte is accepted as an official (non-experimental) gismu, this word would be dispreferred to ronte or rontnrodentia; presently, whether only Rodentia or any "small, scurrying mammal" can be so-referred is vague (although probably preference is the strict sense of only Rodentia).
