notes This experimental cmavo form has been assigned meanings several times independently. The first sense is expanding ko to third-person commands. In Lojban, there're no convenient ways to issue third-person commands, including cohortatives like "Let's go!", which could be rendered with zo xoi as lu xoi mi'o klama li'u. cf. la'e, doi, ko, la'ei and xa'e. The second sense, suggested on the Lojban Wiki by Xod, generalizes na and ja'a by creating a scale between them. This can be seen as an implementation of fuzzy logic. This sense has now been retired in favor of subscripting ja'a with xi. The third sense, apparently invented by Nora Lechevalier some time earlier (at least before 1997), is not intended seriously, but rather as a kind of reductio-ad-absurdum. As it makes any sentence true, regardless of the content, it shows that a language that is excessively free to interpretation is impossible to express anything in.
