tasmi
experimental gismu x1 is the way or manner in which activity/event x2 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

lu'ei
experimental cmavo convert a grammatical quotation to a tanru unit; x1 expresses/says the quoted text for audience x2 via expressive medium x3. The terminator is li'au. It is neither grammatical nor logical that a fragment and a sentence are connected by a sentence conjunction like ``.i je'' or ``.i ba bo''. However, such an expression is common among non-Lojban texts. Selma'o lu'ei forms a tanru unit, and helps us to translate such an expression without losing logical aspect of Lojban. It is also useful in writing scenarios. See also li'au, lu and me. Example 1: lu'ei ki'u lo nu la'e di'u na se tarti mi'a noi cinfo ku'o lo tamsmi sei spuda li'au .i ba bo la cinfo fau lo nu banli plipe cu cecla vofli pagre lo vacri gi'e snura zvabi'o lo ragve (cited and modified from ``lo se manci te makfa pe la .oz.'' translated by la selpa'i.) Example 2: ko'a lu'ei u'i doi .maman. ko viska .i ta dasni cizra li'au i ko'e lu'ei .oi ko na degja'o .i ko smaji li'au
