gi'ei
experimental cmavo afterthought abstraction wrapper Accepts 'gi'ei LE NU', 'gi'ei NU' (elided LE defaults to lo), or 'gi'ei LOhOI'. Wraps the bridi before it within an abstraction. e.g. 'mi klama le zarci gi'ei-le-nu cabna lo nu do klama' = 'le nu mi klama le zarci cu cabna lo nu do klama'. Also see xoi, jai'i. Grammar note: The gi'ei-group acts like a specialized vau, grabbing a single bridi. If you are in a sub-bridi of the bridi you wish to convert, you need to close the sub-bridi with vau, or use i'au to return to the top bridi of the sentence.
canja
gismu rafsi: caj x1 exchanges/trades/barters commodity x2 for x3 with x4; x1, x4 is a trader/merchant/businessman. Also (adjective:) x1, x2, x4 is/are commercial (better expressed as ka canja, kamcanja). x2/x3 may be a specific object, a commodity (mass), an event (possibly service), or a property; pedantically, for objects/commodities, this is sumti-raising from ownership of the object/commodity (= posycanja for unambiguous semantics); (cf. dunda, friti, vecnu, zarci, jdini, pleji, jdima, jerna, kargu; see note at jdima on cost/price/value distinction, banxa, cirko, dunda, janta, kargu, prali, sfasa, zivle)
cu'au
experimental cmavo universial famyma'o: terminates the most recently opened construct or clause. cu'au looks back for the most recently opened construct that has not been terminated, and emulates whatever famyma'o would terminate it. It can also be subscripted with xi, and will terminate that many times. Note that that means grammatical function is being put in a xi clause, so be careful when using it. Additionally, cu'au xi ro will terminate all the way up to the last sentence-starting word (.i mi klama lo zarci pe lo pendo be mi cu'au xi ro -> .i mi klama lo zarci pe lo pendo be mi cu'au-be'o-ku-ge'u-ku-vau). This will also terminate to sentences started in lu (will NOT emulate li'u UNLESS used multiple times), ni'o, and no'i. It will NOT emulate le'u. In addition to ro, it can be subscripted with da'a, which terminates to the sentence level, minus 1. In the previous example, this would just leave the vau remaining, and allow you to continue to add to the place structure of klama.
vecnu
gismu rafsi: ven ve'u x1 [seller] sells/vends x2 [goods/service/commodity] to buyer x3 for amount/cost/expense x4. x1 is a salesperson/salesman/vendor; x3 buys x2 from x1 (= terve'u for reordered terms); x4 is the price of x2 to x3 (= velve'u for reordered terms); for sale (= fitselve'u, selvenfriti); x2 may be a specific object, a commodity (mass), an event, or a property; pedantically, for objects/commodities, this is sumti-raising from ownership of the object/commodity (= posyve'u, posyselve'u for unambiguous semantics). (cf. canja, dunda, janta, pleji, jerna, kargu, prali, zarci, vamji, jdima; see note at jdima on cost/price/value distinction, fepni, friti, jerna, rupnu)
