Discussion of "dudvota"

Comment #1: Hm
Jonathan (Mon Jul 20 07:12:58 2015)

Not sure about va'o; doesn't seem to match the use of va'o lo nu (da'i)
for "if", but maybe that's maljbo and fau is better for that.

ma'i may be better, but I don't know what is supposed to go in ma'i.
ma'i is often used as fi'o jinvi, though it may actually be better used
for things like the x3 of berti (presumably the planet)

If I have to use a sumtcita for this I'd go with ci'e; but it might be
one of those malsumtcita that you might want to get rid of...

va'o and fau are fine. The second is just more vague.
da'i is not relevant here, da'i is about subjunctive worlds that don't
depend on this dudvota concept.

ma'i is a frame of reference. la jbovlaste can there but it's better
to use more elucidating concepts like va'o = fi'o tcini or fau = fi'o fanbu
so that worlds under which voting happens can be specified.

Hm... still not convinced. "Possible worlds" doesn't seem to fit this
concept... maybe "context/universe-of-discourse" does though... gah this is
hard >.<

Not possible worlds, but worlds. Also "situations, circumstances, parts of
events or systems".
