goilka'i
fu'ivla x1 (text / virtual-text-object) is a variable representing x2 goi is a special case that makes, e.g. zo ko'a, a goilka'i of something. However the main use of this brivla is to allow ko'a itself, or something like {la .strin.}, to be a virtual "text" standing in for some object, while la'e is used to extract the referent from it. This allows propositions to be truth-conditional on what a variable represents at that point of time, rather than conditional on the referent itself. See sumka'i, goilgau, goilbi'o, krati.
noi'i
experimental cmavo connective modifer/limiter Used for ji and other connective questions. It is preceded by such a connective (question) word and is followed by the set of words or the selma'o name to which the answer is expected/required to belong; the former may be literally a list of cmavo (such as 'zo .e ce zo .a', meaning that only AND or AND-OR are acceptable responses) or the name of a set of them (such as 'non-logical connectives', 'tanru after-thought connectives', 'symmetric connectives', 'all connectives except .u'. etc.). Terminated by ge'u'i. For example 'do djica tu'a loi ckafi ji noi'i lu .enai li'u ce lu na .e li'u ge'u'i loi tcati' asks 'Do you want: some coffee, some tea - where your answer can be only the former or the latter?'.
valrxazdomru
fu'ivla x1 is a xazdmru word Note: for obvious reasons, zo will probably not work here. You probably want zoi or zo'oi to quote x1. ¶ A xazdmru word is a putative zi'evla that will turn into a lujvo-form if the syllabic consonants are filled in with y, thus xaz,dm,ru → xazdymru (xazdo zei mruli). No words of these shapes have ever been defined or used in the corpus. These shapes are banned following a proposal and can't be entered into jbovlaste. See vlaturge'a, valslinku'i, valrtosmabru

terjonle'u
lujvo x1 (letteral: la'e zo BY/word-bu) is a hyphen/joining letter(al) in language x2 with function in/context of use/with rules for use/with properties x3, joining prefixed unit/lexeme/morpheme/string x4 (quote) to postfixed unit/lexeme/morpheme/string x5 (quote) in construct (full word) x6 (quote) x1 joins words/morphemes/particles into a single cohesive, grammatical unit. x4 and x5 may be improper quotes. In English, "-" is such a hyphen letteral; in Lojban, ybu, ry, ny, and ly are such hyphen letterals (arguably, as is y'y). The fact that the letteral is used to join words is implicit and this function therefore need not be specified in x3 in most cases.
lai'e
experimental cmavo Named reference. It converts a sumti into another sumti. The converted sumti points to the referent the name of which is the referent of the unconverted sumti. ``lai'e ko'a''=``zo'e noi se cmene ko'a''. lai'e is a cmavo of LAhE, and followed by any sumti including ``lo se du'u BRIDI'', ``zo...'', ``lu...li'u'', ``lo'u...le'u'' or ``zoi...'', used with an elidable terminater lu'u. For example, ``lai'e lo se du'u ti brife doi la betis'' refers to something the name of which is a text in a language that means ``ti brife doi la betis'', while ``la'e lo se du'u ti brife doi la betis'' refers to the same as ``lo du'u ti brife doi la betis''. The syntax of sumti following lai'e is analysed by the parser, while the syntax of strings following la'ai or la'o is ignored. In the cases that lai'e is followed by lu, lo'u or zoi, the referent is the same as that of sumti formed by la'au, la'ai or la'o respectively: ``lai'e lu ti brife doi la betis li'u (lu'u)''=``la'au ti brife doi la betis li'u''; ``lai'e lo'u se ly van beti le'u (lu'u)''=``la'ai se ly van beti le'u''; ``lai'e zoi zoi C'est le vent, Betty zoi (lu'u)''=``la'o zoi C'est le vent, Betty zoi''. See also la'e, la, la'o, la'ai, la'au; lu'u; cmene.
