Discussion of "poi'a"

Comment #1: selma'o
Curtis W Franks (Fri Apr 15 09:21:03 2016)

You (Selpahi) probably desire to make an alternative definition for
noi'a, else your selbri does not make much sense.

Ah, you did. For some reason, I did not see it.

Comment #2: Alternative word choice
Curtis W Franks (Fri Apr 15 09:24:38 2016)

Should I move my PA definition to NOIhAU or would you (Selpahi) like to
move yours to NOIhE or something similar?

The word poi'a has been used since some time with the meaning Selpahi
entered; but until now nobody added it to JVS. This usage of poi'a has
been described there:
http://selpahi.weebly.com/lojban/zo-xoi-joi-lo-se-srana-be-ri
(It's written in the cekitau dialect; if you have difficulty reading that
page, you can go directly to the bottom where there is a table of formal
definitions for the proposed cmavo.)

poi'a/noi'a/soi'a are intented to be a series of cmavo for implementing
adverbial constructors in Lojban (so something similar to the -ly ending in
English, as in "quietly").

This page ( http://piratepad.net/SvMcskATrA ) is also related to the
subject (in this page, poi'a/noi'a/soi'a were temporarily called
Pxoi/Nxoi/Sxoi).

Okay, then I shall move my proposals. NOIhAU works just as well for me. Do
you agree?

Well, I think it would be fine. Incidentally, you should add one or two
examples to your two cmavo proposals. I'm having trouble understanding
their purpose; examples would probably help. :)

The move has taken place. It actually ended up at noi'a'u, with noi'au
being similar but not quite the same.

Examples will be, eventually, forthcoming. I have explanations and examples
written down on my phone, somewhere...
