cmeta experimental gismu x_1 is meta to/an example of x_2 that describes such an object/concept/notion/system/topic/etc., being meta in property/aspect x_3, and which has features x_4, governed by/considered in system/considerations/epistemology/theory x_5; x_1 is meta (a particular type of abstraction of x_2 so as to apply to itself in some sense); x_1 is an/a piece of/an example of x_2 that applies fractally thereto Does not (necessarily) mean "beyond", "after", "beside"; in some (rather pictoral) senses, these meanings may be necessary but not sufficient for being meta in this sense; thus, "metaphysics" should not be translated using this word. x1 is an object, notion, topic, system, etc. which applies to x2 but which is itself an example thereof; for example, the meanings of the words "metalinguistics" and "metadata" are meta in this sense. It is not necessarily directly self-referential, but could be fractally applicative. x1 is an X that is about (another) X; x1 is an abstraction of X so as to apply to X. x1 does not necessarily abstract [from] (in one sense), but is abstract to, x2. See also: {xulta} (generalized/weaker), {sucta}.
cmevo experimental gismu x_1 is a morphologically defined name word meaning x_2 in language x_3. (By analogy with {brivo}; syn. {cmevla}) In Lojban, such words are characterized by ending with a consonant. In Lojban, a {cmevo} may only consist of a single word, whereas a {cmene} can consist of one or multiple words, which may be cmevo. See also {vlaturge'a}.
cmila gismu -mi'a- x_1 laughs (emotional expression). x_1 laughs at x_2 (= {mi'afra}). See also {ckasu}, {frumu}, {xajmi}, {cisma}.
cmima gismu -mim- -cmi- x_1 is a member/element of set x_2; x_1 belongs to group x_2; x_1 is amid/among/amongst group x_2. x_1 may be a complete or incomplete list of members; x_2 is normally marked by la'i/le'i/lo'i, defining the set in terms of its common property(ies), though it may be a complete enumeration of the membership. See also {ciste}, {porsi}, {jbini}, {girzu}, {gunma}, {klesi}, cmavo list {mei}, {kampu}, {lanzu}, {liste}.

cnemu gismu -nem- -ne'u- x_1 (agent) rewards x_2 [recipient] for atypical x_3 (event/property) with reward/desserts x_4. Differs from earned payment because of atypical nature; rewards need not be positive but are in some sense deserved from the point of view of the rewarder: positive reward (= {zanyne'u}), punishment, penalty, demerit (= {malne'u}, {sfane'u}); x_4 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 (= {posne'u}, {posyvelne'u} for unambiguous semantics). See also {dunda}, {friti}, {jerna}, {jinga}, {jivna}, {pleji}, {sfasa}, {venfu}, {prali}, {dapma}.

Body language, posturing, and stature are usually considered to be nonlocalized (body-general), although they need not be (and technically are not in general). Must be externally visible and/or internally sensed. Any non-body-part utensil/item (including clothing) must function as an extension of the body in the gesture. Need not be conscious or performed by a person (note that agent/performer is not mentioned in this definition); can, but need not, be accompanied by vocalizations (not necessarily linguistic), but the gesture itself is not primarily noise-producing. Might include sign language words or cheremes, although a more explicit word for linguistically organized and “full” cheremes is preferred (and especially for the sign language as a whole). x1 is possibly best typed by {nu} and/or {si'o}. x4 might be best expressed as an event; for example, it could be "the event of the right hand touching the chest near the heart, with fist clenched" for a salute, whereas/wherein x3 would be merely the fist/hand (and the chest near the heart). Use "{cocygau}" resp. "{cocyzu'e}" for: "x_1 (agent resp. volitional entity) gestures; x1 agentively/actively makes gesture x2, communicating x3, performed with body part(s) x4 in motion x5"; this lujvo uses an unofficial cmarafsi.

The use of {pi'e} or {joi} as date mechanisms was insufficient and having the date components built into the place structure seems far more elegant. (Cf. {masti}, {djedi}, {nanca}, {nu}, {fasnu}, {purci}, {balvi}, {jeftu})

delta experimental gismu x_1 (amount/value (li/ni) or labelled entity) is the (mutual) difference between/change in (states/realizations of/output from) general and relevant idea/object or subject of interest or function/aspect/property/topic/dependent parameter/dependent variable x_2 under or due to a change in (independent) parameter/variable/index/identification/ownership/property/aspect x_3 (generic name) to (later) specific state/realization/value/person/entity/meaning x_4 (type and dimensions match those of x_3) from (earlier) specific state/realization/value/person/entity/meaning x_5 (type and dimensions match that of x_3), under circumstances/conditions/with(in) scope/with caveats x_6. Especially in reference to incremental or quantized (or discretely observed) changes. x_2 is an x_1-type-valued function of x_3; x_4 and x_5 are realizations of x_3 (therefore, all three share type). For example, x_1 could be some value with dimensions of currency/money/monetary value measured in real numbers, x_2 could be a specific business' profit from certain sales, x_3 may be time (so, x_2 would be the profit over time, measured in a real number of units of currency), and x_4 and x_5 would be specific times - such as today and yesterday, respectively. Ideally, all factors, variables, conditions, etc. other than x_3 should remain constant or there should be a control group/population which records the effects of changes in other factors, variables, conditions, etc.; however, in real life, things can be more complicated or messy and it is hard to ensure that all factors are accounted for (especially in social experiments and business); x_5 records those other conditions or specifies the scope (for example: subjects, time, and location) of the 'experiment'. Typically, x_4 will be temporally later than x_5, but this need not be the case; in any case, x_4 is taken to be the latter state (etc.) under consideration in the present analysis in the context of this word's usage (in some sequence). x_1 could be "0" (whatsoever that means) - it could even be identically so; in other words, there need be no change or mutual difference, even in principle (the function/object could be constant); and this fact could even be known a priori. See also: "{sumji}" / "{selsumji}".

Cf. {de'i}, {djedi}, {jeftu}, {masti}, {nanca}, {tcika}.

digno experimental gismu x_1 is aligned diagonally along/between nonadjacent vertices x_2 as in polytope x_3; x_1 is a diagonal line segment/linear manifold of lower dimension as viewed in frame of reference x_3; x_1 is crooked (one sense), skew (one sense, see notes), off-kilter (one sense), away from center/off-center, non-orthogonal/not perpendicular nor parallel, at an angle, perhaps non-vertical and non-horizontal, diagonal to x_2 in figure/coordinate system x_3. Not for use in: entries of tensors/matrices (confer: {daigno}), certain geometric meanings (such as with Cartesian products), etc. Only for purely 'visual' geometric objects/figures/frames. The polytope in question need not actually be 'drawn'; an oriented frame of reference naturally 'projects' a polytopic sense onto all objects. x1 can be any linear manifold of lower dimension than the space in which it is embedded (defined by x3). The skewness is not relative to another linear manifold in some higher-dimensional space (the usual definition of "skew" in geometry) - it is simply a skewness (in a layperson sense) relative to points in a figure or axis in a coordinate system. Proposed by Gleki.

dinso experimental gismu x_1 is a 'dinosaur' [very general: any ancient quasi-reptilian vertebrate or, possibly but probably not, modern bird] of type x_2 living in era x_3. A gismu version of "{dinsauru}"; contrast with "{rexsa}" (in particular, this word probably would not but could refer to modern birds whereas "{rexsa}" can always do so without any connotation to the contrary; meanwhile, "{rexsa}" cannot refer to pterosaurs, ichthyosaurs, vel sim. but this word can). The use of this word is not strictly only relevant to members of clade Dinosauria, although it does include them (and, specifically, modern birds, although it connotes ancientness and extinction unless it is part of an explicitly contrary or general context); its referent might also/alternatively include pterosaurs, icthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, mosasaurs, dimetrodons, avemetatarsaliads, and perhaps even other ancient synapsids (in other words, any prehistoric quasi-reptilian vertebrate). As such, it is a qualitative word that bears no particular or strong attention or respect to genealogy, cladistics, taxology/taxonomy, or scientific/academic classification of these animals. Basically, any prehistoric animal the name of which ends in "-saur" can be so-described, as well as others. It probably should not reference more modern-like mammals proper.

Angular/curling direction: clockwise. he orientation of the path determines x4 but does not factor into consideration for x3. Further glosses: clockwise, locally rightward, right-turning (with no bulk translation) in a way that would be characterized as "negative" by the right-hand rule (aligned with and in the direction of a basis vector, at least for a given component). x1 is left-handedly/clockwise(ly) oriented relative to x2 on/along x3 in frame of reference x4. x1 is left-handed (one sense) from x2 [more accurately: moving from x2 to x1 requires a(n imaginary) motion that is left-handed about/along x3 as seen in frame/orientation/perspective x4]. x1 is to the path-following right of x2 (where the path is connected; as such, x1 is also be to the path-following left of x2, although there is an implication that the former is the smaller (or equal-length) path). See also: {zucna}, {du'ei} (left-handed vectorial cross product), {du'oi} (modal). Proposed short rafsi: -tso-.

facni experimental gismu x_1 is an n-ary operator/map which is distributive/linear/homomorphic in or over or from space/structure x_2, mapping to space or structure x_3, thereby producing a new space/structure x_4 which is the 'union' of x_2 and x_3 endowed with x_1; x_1 distributes over/through all of the operators of x_2. x_2 and x_3 cannot merely be sets; they must be structures/systems which each are a set/category endowed with at least one operator/relation/property (here, "operator" will refer to any of these options) each; the ith operator endowing one space corresponds to exactly the ith operator endowing the other space under mapping x_1. For any operator of x_2, x_1 is commutative with it with respect to functional composition ({fa'ai}) when the (other) operator is 'translated' to the corresponding operator of x_3 appropriately. x_1 is linear/a linear operator; x_1 is a homomorphism; x_1 distributes. x_2 is homomorphic with x_3 under x_1; they need not be identical (in fact, their respective operators need not even be identical, just 'homomorphically similar'). For "distributivity"/"distributive property", "linearity of operator", or "homomorphicity of operator", use "ka(m)( )facni" with x_1 filled with "{ce'u}"; for "homomorphicity of spaces", use the same thing, but with x_2 or x_3 filled with "{ce'u}". See also: "{socni}", "{cajni}", "{sezni}", "{dukni}"; "{fa'ai}"; "{fatri}". This is a structure-operator-preserving function, and thus is an example of a {stodraunju}.

farka experimental gismu x_1 is an orientation of/on (base) object x_2 with features/characteristics/definition x_3; x_2 is an unoriented version of an object endowed with/given orientation/direction/face x_1.

The value of x_3 is a subjective estimate of likeliness according to x_1, and is the basic determinant of whether kanpe means something like "hope" or "wish" or "expect", although kanpe never carries the connotation of desire; for that connotation see {pacna}. kanpe with x_3 not very close to 1 has no simple equivalent in English, but for objects/states with negligible expectation it is something like "wishing"; if the state is plausibly likely, it is something like "hoping". In both cases, though, the English implication of emotional desire is not present.

kazmi experimental gismu x_1 (li) is the cardinality of set x_2 (set) Exactly equivalent to {nilzilcmi} except in morphology. But cardinality is a pretty fundamental thing in mathematics (in some sense, even more fundamental than natural numbers), so it arguably deserves a gismu; this will also shorten many lujvo which should use a word for cardinality. The second terbri should technically be filled by a set, but other structures could probably be acceptable; these might include groups and other algebraic structures, multisets, lists, classes, vel sim. {ci'i} alone (without being followed by another (integer-representing) digit) indicates an infinite cardinality but not which one; beware the assumption of the Axiom of Choice or Generalized Continuum Hypothesis.

Usually (in modern Western culture), adoption of this type is of a young child (x_2) by a soon-to-be parental figure or romantic n-some (x_1) into the role of their offspring analog (x_3); however, many other forms of adoption are possible and belong to this word. Note that this definition is in the passive voice in English. The 'step-parent'/'step-child' or even direct spousal or resultant 'in-law' relationships may in some sense be viewed as adoption via marriage. This definition is very broad, but a certain degree of integration is assumed or required (at least for certain purposes). Adoption can be by a community and the 'familial' relationship can be simply a somewhat interpersonally-distant communal one. Adoption need not be by an older or more senior person of a younger or more junior one. x_4 is most useful when it differs from x_2 (particularly if x_2 is an individual). Adoption does not presuppose that no relationship, or even similar relationship, existed prior to the adoption, although it would be odd to adopt someone into exactly the same relationship which they already had attained. This word replaces the word "{lacpa}", which is prohibited by gismu conflict ({gimkamsmikezypro}); for a perfect synonym of zevla form, see: "{cplancu}".

modju experimental gismu x_1 (li; number) is congruent to x_2 (li; number; see description for canonical/traditional/contextless default usage) modulo x_3 (li; number); \\frac{(x_1 - x_2)}{x_3} is an integer. In order to be clear (in case of poor display), (x_1 - x_2)/x_3 is an integer, possibly (but not necessarily) nonpositive. Traditionally, but not necessarily, x_3 is a strictly positive integer (in particular, x_3 is nonzero) and is called "(the) modulus"; if x_3 = 1, then x_1 and x_2 differ only by an integer amount - in other words, they have the same fractional part. Technically, x_1 and x_2 are symmetric under mutual exchange and can even be equivalent; however, in a manner morally analogous to "{srana}", x_2 is canonically/traditionally either the common residue (the unique element in the space which is congruent to x_1 mod x_3 and which is greater than or equal to 0 and strictly less than x_3) or the minimal residue (denoting the common residue by c, the minimal residue is either c xor c - x_3, whichever is strictly less than the other in absolute value), and this may even be considered as its contextless default meaning (such as in "lo se modju"). See also: {dilcu}, {dunli}, {mintu}, {simsa}, {panra}, {dilma} (a particularly close relative and generalization of this word with slightly different focus). This word is essentially identical with {dilcrmadjulu}; consider this word to be its gismu equivalent. It is not the modulus operator; for that, use {veldilcu} or {vei'u}. It is a specific type of {terpanryziltolju'i}, although both occupy the word "modulo" in English. This word does not have direct access to "integer-part" but does to "fractional-part".

paxra experimental gismu x_1 is a cross-section (substance viewed cross-sectionally) of object x_2 made from perspective/side/orientation/along (and perpendicular to) axis x_3 (this determines the shape) and made in hyperplane/at depth/to contain/consisting of particular slice x_4 (this determines the size and content), of dimensionality x_5 [li; integer greater than -2, less than or equal to the dimensionality of x_2]; x_1 is the result and arranged content of the intersection of x_2 with an (x_5) -dimensional hyperplane that is perpendicular to axis x_3 and along it such that it has a depth (approximately x_4) in x_2 that allows it to contain a particular slice (of) x_4 This is not necessarily just a picture or perspective/image of a cross-section (use lujvo for that sense)- this would include MRI scans/images, tomography, etc.; it is really a(n idea copy of a) thin slice, in an abstract or mathematical sense, of the object x_2 itself (that slice need not actually be removed from the object; the object need not actually be cut). Use lujvo for effective cross-section due to fundamental physical interactions (so-called 'forces'; such as electromagnetism) as in the case of bombardment. Need not be two-dimensional. The substance/medium/consistency and arrangement of the cross-section is the same as that of the object in that particular slice. Microscope slides are included. If the object is n-dimensional and the dimensionality of the cross-section is not n-1, then the particular segment of the (n-1)-dimensional cross-section being particularly considered must be specified by x_3, x_4, and x_5.

premi experimental gismu x_1 is the principal/chief/main/boss/primary/premier in aspect/organizational principle/role x_2 (ka) in organization/system x_3. This is much like tervipsi except that it does not imply the existence of any subordinate/deputy. So the Presidency is an office which may fill x_2 in this word or {vipsi}; here it produces what is normally called the President (x_1) but there, it produces the Vice-President. This allows for abbreviations such as "(A)(V)P(E)otUS", but brings symmetry between VP and P, allowing also for strings with variable characters which allow the referent to range over the possibilities (offices) more easily (rather than reminding people that a null character is possible), such as with "XPotUS", wherein "X" is variable and thus the string can refer to the PotUS or the VPotUs (and possibly those with "A" concatenated to their fronts).

Groups may (presently) be hard to name (or unsystematic in such) since the periodic table may be infinitely large such that it is equipped with an infinite number of groups between any two mutually nonidentical groups. For now, use cmevla or brivla for designating groups; optionally, pick a representative member of that group. Periods can be designated similarly or by number (counting by ones from one (being the period containing hydrogen)).

rirli experimental gismu x_1 is realistic/sane (colloquial sense)/pragmatic/practical/typical/frequent/fairly probable/deemed to be likely to actually happen in real-life (as opposed to in a flight of fantasy or being merely possible but unlikely/abnormal) according to judge x_2 and under external conditions/rules for judgment/considerations x_3 For example, winning the lottery is not rirli because it 'does not happen to real people', as the saying goes, despite the fact that SOMEone always ends up winning; it is just the case that the judge does not consider it likely to happen to anyone that they know of. Another example would be that successfully fleeing the cops is not rirli: it is possible and even happens every now and then on the news, but it is extremely rare. Basically, if it is newsworthy for its rareness, it is not rirli. On the other hand, some things which actually are objectively fairly unlikely but which are subjectively representative of 'how life works' (such as with Murphy's Law) may be considered rirli. Mundane things very much so are rirli. Things which could be mundane but which 'no-one actually does' are not rirli. There is always an element of subjectivity or exaggeration with this word. It is not about what is physically possible, just what is familiar to the hearsay and experience and contemplation of the judge. A reasonable expectation is rirli. See also: {kanpe}, {zirli}

ronte experimental gismu x_1 is a rodent [can be a member of eutherian mammal Rodentia; semantic broadening might subjectively generalize the concept somewhat] of subtaxon/type/genus/species/breed/variety x_2. (Updated for 2022-11-18: This word is now in conflict with "{ronti}", although this word was created on or around 2014-06-27 and thus might have precedence; see "{raunte}"). This word is the gismu version of: "{ratcnrodentia}", "{rontnrodentia}". Meant for any rodent in general (more general than "{ratcu}", "{smacu}"). Semantic broadening may allow for any 'small, scurrying mammal' to be so named (such as lagomorphs; such description should be avoided in technical contexts and is not necessarily disparaging (unlike in English)). For the subjective generalization of concept to any 'small scurrying mammal' made explicit, unambiguous, and clear, use: "{rontysmimabru}".

salri experimental gismu x_1 is the differintegral of x_2 with respect to x_3 of order x_4, with differintegration being according to definition/specification or of type x_5. All integrals are indefinite. Definition of which differintegral operator is being used is context-dependent if not specified explicitly by x_5. Dimensionality of x_1 and x_2 may be similarly specified. Output x_1 is a function, not a value (that is, it is some f rather than f(x)); it must be specified/restricted to a value in order to be a value; thus, output may be g' but not g'(a) for some a; similarly, definite integrals and integration constants must be defined with additional effort. x_2 is likewise a function. If x_2 is univariate, then x_3 defaults to that input/variable; when x_2 is physical, without context, time will probably usually but not necessarily be assumed as the default of x_3 (but may be made explicit by "{temsalri}"). Positive values of x_4 are integrals, negative values are derivatives, and zero is identity; at the least, any real value may be supplied for x_4; x_4 has no default value. Useful for making lujvo for physics, for specifying career/total/sum versus peak/instantaneous value, for distinguishing between instantaneous versus average values/quantities, for specifying rates, generalized densities (including pressure), "per" for smooth quantities, etc. See also: "{salrixo}" (synonymous zi'evla).

Looking up a word in a dictionary, treatments for a certain medical disease, or reading a text which is cited or referenced in another paper in order to gain additional insight on the subject of the latter are all included in this word's scope; the emphasis is not on the searching feature (distinguishing it from "to look up" as in "{gugle}") but on gaining knowledge/information from a given (usually recorded or recounted) source which is specifically designed for that purpose (so, gaining knowledge from general life experiences is not included, but gaining advice from a narrative recounting of a discrete life experience is indeed included). The means of intaking the information need not be visual, despite the English translations.

All connotations about the judgment of the experience by x_1 are neutral in this definition (despite the use of the "enjoy"). This word references a generalizing concept of x_1 being an audience to some work or experience, such as magic acts (even if x1 participates somewhat), theatrical plays, ovations or audio presentation (radio, storytelling, etc.), seminary or presentation, television programs, books, discussions or media productions on the Internet, etc. The core concept is audiencehood, regardless of the work being enjoyed/experienced and its form. There are no connotations about how x_2 is perceived by x_1 (that is: which senses are used), nor how x_2 is transmitted nor who or what allows x1 to experience it (that is: whether there is an agentive performer or just a piece of hardware that displays x_2), nor of the nature of x_2; the term is completely generic and general.

tinri experimental gismu x_1 (abstraction) bores x_2 in manner x_3; x_2 is bired by/experiences boredom about x_1, the boredom being of type/form x_3. There is debate in the literature about the nature of boredom; some believe that it is a sense of lack of meaning in what one is doing, others believe that it is just a lack of attentiveness about those tasks; other descriptions likely exist. As such, it feels inappropriate to construct this emotion, which feels rather atomic to me anyway, as a lujvo which picks one of these possibilities at the exclusion of others; its being a gismu will also allow it to be more easily used in other constructions. x_3 is to specify the aforementioned nature, if it is identifiable or desired to be asserted; it can also be "existential" (ennui?) or similar.

This word might be generalizable to any gadri-specific (proposed) grammar systems for Lojban, rather than Xorlo (as currently understood, or future versions thereof) specifically. See also: {cukre}.

It is up to the user to determine whether snailmail (or phone conversation) constitutes zirli or whether it is really just an analog of (and essentially the same as) primitive cyber interaction, but slowed down; distance and the frequency of person-to-person interaction up to that point probably are important in this case and should be contrasted with the other forms of interaction.

zmase experimental gismu x_1 is an enzyme catalyzing reaction x_2
zmiku gismu -zmi- x_1 is automatic in function x_2 under conditions x_3. See also {macnu}.
zucna experimental gismu x_1 is counterclockwise/left-turn-direction of[/to] x_2 along/following track x_3 [path] in frame of reference x_4 (where the axis is within the region defined by the track as the boundary, as viewed from and defined by view(er) x_4; see notes); x_1 is locally to the left of x_2, according to x_4, constrained along x_3; x_1 is along a left turn from x_2 along path x_3, as viewed in frame x_4. Angular/curling direction: counterclockwise. The orientation of the path determines x4 but does not factor into consideration for x3. Further glosses: counterclockwise, locally leftward, left-turning (with no bulk translation) in a way that would be characterized as "positive" by the right-hand rule (aligned with and in the direction of a basis vector, at least for a given component). x1 is right-handedly/counterclockwise(ly) oriented relative to x2 on/along x3 in frame of reference x4 x1 is right-handed (one sense) from x2 [more accurately: moving from x2 to x1 requires a(n imaginary) motion that is right-handed along x3 as seen in frame/orientation/perspective x4]. x1 is to the path-following left of x2 (where the path is connected; as such, x1 is also be to the path-following right of x2, although there is an implication that the former is the smaller (or equal-length) path). See also: {dutso}, {za'ei} (vectorial cross product), {zu'au} (modal). Proposed short rafsi: -zuc-, -zu'a-. (If “zn” ever becomes a permissible initial consonant pair, krtisfranks proposes that “-zna-” become a rafsi of this word- it makes {zucna} and {dutso} more parallel in lujvo formation, and he is of the opinion that this word is useful and basic enough to warrant such a prized rafsi assignment; after this addition, the current two rafsi proposals can be done away with, reassigned, maintained, vel sim. as desired by the community at the time. In particular, he recognizes that “-zu’a-” might be confusing as a rafsi for this word while being a modal cmavo for {zunle}; but he does believe that this word deserves a vowel-final short rafsi.)
