ke'e'u
experimental cmavo Locks tanru modification order reversal (does not affect lujvo). {ke'e'unai} restores regular order Makes all tanru in the following text "selskiski"/"military-style": i.e. tertau come *before* seltau. This essentially puts ke'oi before every tanru. // This is an experimental cmavo in the truest sense of the word, used to test out "what if" Lojban chose "noun-adjective" order, which does have several advantages (chief of them being that the selbri-unit that describes the subject is uttered first), despite being unusual for English speakers.
ke'oi
experimental cmavo reverses modification order of contained tanru (does not affect lujvo). Marks a "selskiski"/"military-style"/"noun-adjective" tanru, i.e. tertau come *before* seltau. This differs from co in that it does not affect the place structure of the sumti to the right; i.e. in {mi ke'oi broda brode do} (= {mi brode broda do}), both mi and do are arguments of broda. Default grouping is still left: {lo ke'oi ckule nixli cmalu melbi} resolves to {lo ke'oi (((ckule nixli) cmalu) melbi)}, which is equivalent to {lo melbi ke cmalu ke nixli ckule}. co does not (re-)reverse the order of tanru-modification; it only changes place structure. See ke'e'u.
