I basically agree, but (1) that does not generalize super easily (we need
"ga bu", "ge bu", "go bu", "gu bu", and that just covers logical
connectives in this specific format) and (2) I would be inclined to
interpret that in a fashion closer to "&" but with the forethought
functionality.

I almost think that we need a word to refer to the first of the connected
structures by the most recent connective (logical or otherwise), and
another word to refer to the second of these. These words would be their
own atomic cmavo, I imagine. This could get complicated due to the variety
structures which may be connected, and issues could arise with nested ones
(although it also makes it easy to refer to complicatedly-connected
structures too), but some variation on this approach seems to be the best
path forward, IMHO.
