ziltodi
fu'ivla x1 is a property of a constant number/amount x1 is a unary property whose open sumti slot (ce'u) is filled with a number/amount constant over time. See also stodi, zilzena, zildika.
zu'ai
experimental cmavo shows mutual activity between this place and the first place of the current bridi; members participating in the activity are put into the first place (that e.g. can be formed by connecting sumti with {ce} or {jo'u}) See also simxu, zi'o
di'ei
experimental cmavo pro-sumti and sumyzmico: an elliptical/unspecified value which does not necessarily obey the default setting for the corresponding terbri that is explicitly specified in the definition of the word; has some value which makes bridi true Some brivla have default specifications for certain terbri; when any explicit sumti is omitted from filling these terbri (an implicit zo'e fills them instead), the meaning of that sumti is interpreted in accordance with the default specification; it is reasonable to suppose that an explicit zo'e used in order to fill such terbri will likewise obey the default specification in its interpretation. Thus, there is no simple way to reference the "general" elliptical/unspecified value for these sumti, other than by using this word. zo'e typically is interpreted as meaning any value of some general and unspecified set of potential sumti referents, modulated by context and the need to make the statement true; in the case of an explicit default setting of a terbri by the definition of a word, di'ei takes on this general and unspecified meaning, effectively ignoring the default (although it can take on the value of that default (doing so, simply, is just not necessary)); when no default is specified for the terbri in the definition, this word has the same meaning as zo'e. See also: di'au, di'oi, zmico.
gadri
gismu rafsi: gad x1 is an article/descriptor labelling description x2 (text) in language x3 with semantics x4. x2 is the noun phrase/sumti without the article/descriptor; description ((x1 with x2) = gadysu'i); note: 'determiner' has become the accepted general linguistics term, displacing 'article'; however, 'determiner' includes all words that can introduce a noun phrase/sumti, whether a description or not, such as pronoun possessives like lemi, quantifiers (especially in indefinites) like ci and su'o, and demonstratives like ti, ta, and tu; the term 'descriptor' in Lojban, is limited to words that introduce descriptions (excluding indefinites), such as those of selma'o LA and LE, their common compounds such as lemi, and possibly lenu. 'article' typically refers only to a single word; Lojban assumes the broader meaning] See also valsi, cmavo.
gismu
gismu rafsi: gim gi'u x1 is a (Lojban) root word expressing relation x2 among argument roles x3, with affix(es) x4. Gismu list, if physical object (= (loi) gimste); referring to the mental construct (e.g. propose adding a new gismu to the gismu list = gimpoi, gimselcmi, gimselste). See also cmavo, cmene, lujvo, smuni, sumti, tanru, valsi.
kau'a
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: strong-memory something1/eidetic da/elephant thing1 (logically quantified existential, arbitrarily-long-scope pro-sumti) The meaning is the same as da and it functions the same way except that any assignment/qualification placed upon it (except for quantification) is semantically retained throughout a discourse until da'o is uttered; it acts as though the scope (except for quantification that occurs outside of a POI-clause) of all previous usages are arbitrarily long, terminated only by da'o or the end of the discourse. User beware: usage is tricky. See also: kau'e, kau'i, da'au, da.
kau'e
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: strong-memory something2/eidetic de/elephant thing2 (logically quantified existential, arbitrarily-long-scope pro-sumti) The meaning is the same as de and it functions the same way except that any assignment/qualification placed upon it (except for quantification) is semantically retained throughout a discourse until da'o is uttered; it acts as though the scope (except for quantification that occurs outside of a POI-clause) of all previous usages are arbitrarily long, terminated only by da'o or the end of the discourse. User beware: usage is tricky. See also: kau'a, kau'i, da'au, de.
kau'i
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: strong-memory something3/eidetic di/elephant thing3 (logically quantified existential, arbitrarily-long-scope pro-sumti) The meaning is the same as di and it functions the same way except that any assignment/qualification placed upon it (except for quantification) is semantically retained throughout a discourse until da'o is uttered; it acts as though the scope (except for quantification that occurs outside of a POI-clause) of all previous usages are arbitrarily long, terminated only by da'o or the end of the discourse. User beware: usage is tricky. See also: kau'a, kau'e, da'au, di.
sumyzmico
lujvo x1=z1=s1 is a zmico that functions as a pro-sumti which references specified default value x2=z2 (definition/function) that works with discourse-orientation x3=z3 (discourse exterior/interior), filling terbri of brivla/predicate x4=s2, in language x5=z5; x1 is a default-value-referencing pro-sumti with definition/function/value x2 zmico is an experimental gismu. See also: zmico, zicysu'i, gafyzmico.
bo'a
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: definitional terbri variable 1; x1 May be used to define words with cei'e, or to talk about definitions of existing or proposed words. Series: bo'a bo'e bo'i bo'o bo'u
bo'e
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: definitional terbri variable 2; x2 May be used to define words with cei'e, or to talk about definitions of existing or proposed words. Series: bo'a bo'e bo'i bo'o bo'u
bo'i
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: definitional terbri variable 3; x3 May be used to define words with cei'e, or to talk about definitions of existing or proposed words. Series: bo'a bo'e bo'i bo'o bo'u
bo'o
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: definitional terbri variable 4; x4 May be used to define words with cei'e, or to talk about definitions of existing or proposed words. Series: bo'a bo'e bo'i bo'o bo'u
bo'u
experimental cmavo pro-sumti: definitional terbri variable 5; x5 May be used to define words with cei'e, or to talk about definitions of existing or proposed words. Series: bo'a bo'e bo'i bo'o bo'u
bu'o'e
experimental cmavo elliptical/unspecified/vague letteral/symbol Has use in mekso at the least; in this context, it might subsume xo'e (but see: xo'e'o'e). It also may be useful in spelling, initialisms, etc. If used as a pro-sumti (as other letters are), it means zo'e but only for reasonable or previously specified letterals assignments.
do'ai
experimental cmavo discursive & gafyzmico: ignore/kill all following default specifications (permanently) Hereinafter, no terbri will have any default specification unless explicitly given one in the discourse or unless the "official" definition default value is referenced explicitly by the appropriate pro-sumti. See also: dai'o, zmico, gafyzmico, da'o.
