bridi
gismu rafsi: bri x1 (du'u) is a predicate relationship with relation x2 among arguments (sequence/set) x3. Also: x3 are related by relation x2 (= terbri for reordered places). (x3 is a set completely specified); See also sumti, fancu.
goi'e
experimental cmavo assign sentence or tu'e...tu'u group to sumti Works like cei'e, but assigns the abstraction involving the associated sentence(s) to a sumti variable. E.g. (goi'e ko'a mi tavla do) assigns (lo su'u mi tavla do) to ko'a. Use lu'e on the assigned variable to refer to the text itself. See goi, cei
sumgadri
lujvo x1 is a sumti qualifier labelling sumti x2 with semantics x3. See also la'e, lu'e, tu'a, lu'a, lu'i, lu'o, vu'i; lu'u
lai'e
experimental cmavo Named reference. It converts a sumti into another sumti. The converted sumti points to the referent the name of which is the referent of the unconverted sumti. ``lai'e ko'a''=``zo'e noi se cmene ko'a''. lai'e is a cmavo of LAhE, and followed by any sumti including ``lo se du'u BRIDI'', ``zo...'', ``lu...li'u'', ``lo'u...le'u'' or ``zoi...'', used with an elidable terminater lu'u. For example, ``lai'e lo se du'u ti brife doi la betis'' refers to something the name of which is a text in a language that means ``ti brife doi la betis'', while ``la'e lo se du'u ti brife doi la betis'' refers to the same as ``lo du'u ti brife doi la betis''. The syntax of sumti following lai'e is analysed by the parser, while the syntax of strings following la'ai or la'o is ignored. In the cases that lai'e is followed by lu, lo'u or zoi, the referent is the same as that of sumti formed by la'au, la'ai or la'o respectively: ``lai'e lu ti brife doi la betis li'u (lu'u)''=``la'au ti brife doi la betis li'u''; ``lai'e lo'u se ly van beti le'u (lu'u)''=``la'ai se ly van beti le'u''; ``lai'e zoi zoi C'est le vent, Betty zoi (lu'u)''=``la'o zoi C'est le vent, Betty zoi''. See also la'e, la, la'o, la'ai, la'au; lu'u; cmene.
de'ai
experimental cmavo default value (re)specification/(re)assignment/(re)definition/over-write; set new default value (terbri-specific; permanent) Terminates immediately previous sumti. The immediately following (next) unfilled terbri at that level of nesting is affected by this word; if no such terbri exists at that level of nesting, this word's affects apply to the next unfilled terbri in the immediately higher level of nesting (unnested once); if no unfilled terbri exist at any/all levels of nesting and following the immediately previous sumti (even if unfilled terbri exist prior to that sumti), this word has no meaningful affect and can be ignored. This word must be followed by a sumti; for the purpose of this explanation, this sumti will be xy (as in "de'ai xy"). The affected terbri is defined to default to the value xy (the sumti as a whole, including gadri, tanru, relative clauses, etc.); in other words, when not explicitly filled or when filled be di'au, the sumti value filling the affected terbri is that of xy. This affect remains in effect until the end of the text/conversation or until/unless the default setting of this terbri explicitly redefined (overriding by di'ei is temporary/only applies to that usage). If xy is zo'e, the default value is completely general and elliptical; thus, permanently overriding a default setting on a specific terbri may be done by "de'ai zo'e". The scope of this word fully encompasses and ends with the following sumti (xy); thus, the second sumti, same-/higher-level terminator, a FA cmavo, etc. following this word ends the new default specification in addition to its other functions. Additionally, this word does not actually fill the affected terbri with any particular sumti/value; it merely defines its default value hereinafter. CAUTION: Thus, the second same-level sumti uttered actually fills the affected terbri; in order to access the newly-defined default value of the terbri immediately after definition, follow "xy" (with terminator) immediately with implicit (or possibly explicit) "zo'e" (possibly necessitating terminators), "di'au", or "xy" itself. Moreover, therefore, the default value defined by this word does not immediately/necessarily affect the truth value of the statement in which it appears (it only does so if the second following sumti is not di'au, implicit (or possibly) explicit zo'e, or xy itself); however, in all future uses of the brivla to which the terbri belongs, unless explicitly filled with a sumti of a different value, the truth value of those statements will be affected. Also, su does not erase this new definition of default. If the affected terbri is naturally defined to have a default or if it has no naturally defined default value, this word semi-permanently over-writes them. See also: dai'o, de'au, de'ei, de'oi, di'au, di'ei, di'oi.
zi'oi
experimental cmavo fills and deletes (in the manner as {zi'o}) all terbri of immediately previous word that are not explicitly filled with a sumti Implicit/omitted zo'e will be deleted. Deletion is only meaningful if the immediately previous word is a brivla with at least one unfilled (explicitly) terbri. In a tanru or other complicated construct, only the most recent word undergoes this terbri deletion (not every term in the construct). A selbri converted to a sumti by gadri has x1 terbri filled for the purposes of this word; 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.
darlu
gismu rafsi: dau x1 argues for stand x2 against stand x3; [an opponent is not necessary]. See also fapro, jamna, sarji, talsa, sumti, tugni, casnu, damba, bradi, tavla.
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.
jai'i
experimental cmavo takes NU or LE NU, turns into sumtcita: clarifies the semantic NU-type of the current bridi. 'mi jai'i li'i klama lo zarci', 'jai'i li'i ku mi klama lo zarci', and 'mi klama lo zarci jai'i li'i' are all acceptable and equivalent. Implies '(zo'e) li'i mi klama lo zarci', but avoids wrapping the bridi in an abstraction that makes its sumti hard to access via le go'i etc. Tagged sumti, if present, fills the x2 of the NU; e.g. 'jai'i li'i do mi klama lo zarci' implies 'fe do li'i mi klama lo zarci'
atna
fu'ivla x1 is a lotus, plant/flower/herb of species/strain x2. Same as latna but without the cultural-related sumti x3 and x4.
bimkemnipyple
lujvo p1=s1 is a wallpaper from source p2, sticking on wall s2=b1. For wallpaper without a "wall" sumti place, see bimple.
briretsku
lujvo x1 asks x2 what sumti satisfies the predicate x3 See also brije'u, ju'odji, brije'uju'o.
du'umrei
fu'ivla x1 (du'u with kau) is the indirect question of predicate relation x2 (ka), with answers x3 (sumti sequence) See du'umdu, preti, brije'u, du'u, kau
emna
fu'ivla x1 (n-ary property) is applied to sumti x2, x3, ... Can have infinite places (specifically n+1, if x1 is an n-ary property). brivla parallel of me'au.
gincilnacnalfadni
lujvo f1 (member) exhibits aneuploidy (atypical quantity of chromosome) of type/number n1 in/with respect to chromosome gc1 which is atypical of species/set gc3=f3 f2 is incorporated into x2=n1 and x3=gc1; the sumti filling in the last terbri may be a species or a set.
je'abo
cmavo-compound negation sumti qualifier: that which indeed is. Cf. je'a, bo, na'ebo, no'ebo, to'ebo.
