nifkemtemsalryke'ecusna
lujvo x1 (scalar-valued) is the magnitude of the vector of the differintegral (with respect to time) of order x2 of the displacement of x3 (object/point) relative to x4 (object/point/frame of reference; contextless default: origin) in coordinate system/frame of reference/as measured by x5 according to definition/standard/(meta)physics x6, where the differintegral is taken with starting point x7, in metric/by definition x8 This word uses three experimental gismu (with one experimental short cmavo for one of these): nicfa (-nif-), salri, cusna.
xlarafsrejvo
lujvo x1 is an improperly-created/wrongly-proposed/illy-proposed lujvo with intended meaning x2 but actual interpretation/built from metaphor x3, due to/with error x4 in its rafsi x5, which is unacceptable to x6 by standard x7, in language x8 Notice that terbri structure and conditions of error are not referenced in the terbri of this word. The error could be simply failing to be the highest-scoring lujvo available (for a given tanru) by some algorithm/standard; however, it could also be the product of a certain unintentionally wrong tanru construct (wherein a given meaning was intended but is not reflected in the veljvo). See also: srejvo.
ti'ormanku
lujvo x1=m1 is shade-darkened/has shadow x2=c1 cast upon it by obfuscating/blocking/(at least semi-)opaque object x3=c2 from energy/light/transmission source x4=c3; x2 is the shadow-eclipse caste upon x1 by x3, blocking radiation from x4 Possible uses include (but are not limited to) lunar-style eclipses in which the eclipsed object (as seen from another object) is not physically blocked from sight by yet another object but is shaded from sight by the shadow cast upon it by some object (possibly the one from which the eclipse is viewed). There is no real physical difference between this and a solar-style eclipse (both rely on linear alignment of bodies), but the chosen vantage point varies among them and thus causes different interpretations of the same phenomenon of alignment. In other words, it is an eclipse in which the eclipsed object is viewed to be darkened by a shadow (caste upon it by some object) with no significant blocking/impeding body physically betwixt the eclipsed object and the object from which viewing of the eclipse occurs.
