nundumu
fu'ivla x1 is an event/state described by bridi x2 Predicate version of nu, which is is kind of relation between a bridi and an event/state. However with a regular predicate version it is possible to access the x2 just like any regular sumti place. See also nu, du'u.
vinta
experimental gismu x1 (user/consumer) is an addict of/is addicted to substance/entity/experience x2 by standard x3 Implies physiological need; the nature of x2 does not matter, only the response of x1. Quite arguably, anything other than an experience filling in x2 is sumti-raising. Is not necessarily bad; for example, one can be addicted to life, or to the consumption and processing of sugar.
ju'au
experimental cmavo semi-mathematical binary operator: named number base operator/interpreter Follows a number and is followed by a sumti string (introduced with appropriate gadri, multiple sumti strung together via connectives); scope terminates with the end of the sumti and/or with ke'e'au. The construct as a whole syntactically functions as a parenthetical so that mekso may be resumed immediately thereafter without any difficulty. This word attaches to/affects the immediately preceding macrodigit string extending from the last evaluated number, number operation, etc. or bracket to/until this word. The preceding number is semantically interpreted according to the description to which the following sumti refers. If a sequence is supplied as the following sumti, the preceding number is interpreted so that each digit, starting from the left (default: see next), is understood as a multiple of the corresponding value in the sequence under the ordering given (which may produce an invalid/ill-formed result; the placement of pi matters as well). If a single number is submitted (such as "li dau"), this word acts as ju'u; the number is interpreted according to the rules of mekso and is its own island for such interpretation (thus ju'u is needed to override a cultural/grammatical default interpretation, such as decimal, even if this is done within the mekso expression outside of and including the scope of this word). In this way, the sumti being (10^n)_n, which is a sequence, is the same as the sumti being just 10, but is very different from it being the sequence (10)_n. The original default for numeral-position/string reading/interpretation is from left-to-right, where a digit on the left in a pair of digits represents that multiple of a "later" term in the sequence as compared to right member of the pair; thus "23" in decimal means (2*(10^1)) + (3*(10^0)), which is twenty-three. This default may be overridden via specification of the sequence (either its ordering, its domain being negated, or alteration to the base); alternatively, and perhaps more easily, the appearance of "la'e zoi jbo. ri'u bi'o zu'a .jbo" will always reverse it (this is a special input value with interpretation defined by this grammar); when reversed, "23" in decimal means (2*(10^0)) + (3*(10^1)), which is to say thirty-two. Generally, this word overrides the default interpretation of a string of microdigits when computing the value of a macrodigit (see: ju'u'i). See also: ju'u, ju'u'i, pi'e.
cerda
gismu rafsi: ced x1 is an heir to/is to inherit x2 (object/quality) from x3 according to rule x4. Pedantically, inheriting an object should be a sumti-raising (tu'a if non-abstract in x2) of inheriting loka ponse the object - the ownership of the object (= posycerda, posyselcerda for unambiguous semantics). See also jgina.
du'umdu
fu'ivla x1 is a proposition/predication (statement with a truth value), stating that x2 is true Brivla-form of du'u. x1 and x2 are identical (filling them would equate the two sumti). See fatci, jetnu, jitfa, jufra, bridi, nundumu
etmoi
fu'ivla x1 is the value (sumti-object) associated with x2 (label or description), from compound object x3, in interpretation rules/system x4 Generalization of moi. May be used as the brivla form of moi, but also may be used to extract values from compound objects, such as dates, addresses, sequences, or even passages of text. See pormoi, momkai
ge'ai
experimental cmavo metasyntactic variable prenex Explicitly marks variables, e.g. ko'a ko'e, lerfu-strings, and/or brodV (must be converted into sumti using me'ei) as being metasyntactic: i.e. having no specific meaning or referent and merely used to demonstrate syntax or hypothetical scenarios. Automatically unassigns these variables from any previous assignment. e.g. (me'ei broda me'ei brode ko'a ko'e fo'a fo'e ge'ai). See ge'ei, ce'ai, ke'au, zo'u, da'o
mardeji
fu'ivla x1 judges/rates/opines x2 [abstraction] to have morality score x3 [number; default: 1] in respect/according to standard/judged according to or in system x4; x1 believes in (the (im)morality of) x2 Beware sumti-raising in x2. x3 should be a real number between -1 and 1 (inclusive); x3=1 is perfectly good/moral/virtuous, x3=0 is neutral, and x3=-1 is completely immoral/despicable.
na'au
experimental cmavo converts an unevaluated mekso expression into a sumti referencing its evaluated result (if sensible/defined) For example, would be prefixed to ke'a in xe'au-NOIhA clauses in order to reference the bracketed (unevaluated, formal) subexpression's evaluated result. In some sense, this word plays inverse of/to me'o, but may see less general use since expressions are typically evaluated at the end of mekso utterances. (Thus, this word may find its greatest amount of usage within mekso expressions before they are concluded and evaluated.)
polje
gismu rafsi: plo x1 (force) folds/creases x2 at locus/loci/forming crease(s)/bend(s) x3. For agentive folding (= plogau, plozu'e); use cardinal-value sumti in x3, or rapli, to indicate multiple folds. See also korcu, cinje, boxfo, boxna.
se'o'e
experimental cmavo elliptical/generic/unspecific/vague selbri conversion Basically says 'in some (id est: at least one) ordering/permutation, these arguments and this selbri make sense [and I claim the produced sentence]'. The ordering may be complicated, or it could even be the case that multiple orderings work. Can be useful for when one does not quite remember or care about the exact definition of a brivla, including in sumti; can also be useful when the conversion is particularly complicated, when a desired terbri has a large index, or when multiple conversions are true; it is an allowed, if unhelpful, response to se'u'o.
simxu
gismu rafsi: sim si'u x1 (set) has members who mutually/reciprocally x2 (event [x1 should be reflexive in 1+ sumti]). Members of x1 do to each other/one another x2, and in return do x2; x1 (plural set) do the same thing x2 to each other. See also kampu, mintu.
suzyterki'i
lujvo x1=k3 is the relationship between x2=k1, x3=k2, x3...; x1 is a property of x2. From su'o te ckini. Any number of places may be used. This word was invented by xorxes and is intended as an alternative to quantified selbri with bu'a; it allows the relations to be specified as sumti.
tunri'a
lujvo x1=r1 (nu) physically causes x2=t1 (object, usually pointed) to poke x3=t2 (experiencer) under conditions x4=r3 x4 are the conditions of the causation. Use jai or tack its rafsi -jax- on the front to make the x1 into an concrete sumti, presumably the person doing the poking.
y'i
experimental cmavo connective: elliptical/generic/vague Like zo'e or co'e, but for connectives. The connectives referred to may be logical or non-logical; they take the form proper for the syntax/context (probably is best implemented using post-original CLL connective system modification such as the MAD proposal or the system developed by selpa'i); in standard original CLL usage, this would be the inter-sumti connective. [Presently not allowed by morphology/phonotactic constraints. As such is the case, confer: ji'o'e.]
ce'oi
experimental cmavo argument list separator: acts as a comma between arguments in an argument list supplied to a function. "ce'oi" is the word of choice to separate the arguments in bridi3. Using ce'o there has obvious limitations when the selbri actually calls for a sequence. Obviously, ce'oi has issues too if the selbri can accept an argument list, but this can be circumvented more readily with ke...ke'e brackets than it can with ce'o. Consider ".i lo ka broda cu selbri fi ko'a ce'o ko'e". Without inspecting the type requirements of broda and the respective types of ko'a and ko'e, one cannot determine the meaning of the bridi. Furthermore, if one accepts non-static typing of sumti places, multiple correct answers can be given for a question asking what is the bridi1. This would create ambiguity that is otherwise resolved by "ce'oi". See also ka, du'u, me'au
