To improve the quality of results, jbovlaste search does not return words with insufficient votes. To qualify to be returned in search results, a proposed lujvo is required to have received a vote in favor in both directions: for instance, in English to Lojban and in Lojban to English.

In addition, due to it being a very technically hard problem, full text searching (that is, searching of definitions rather than just keywords) is not available at this time.

From Lojban to English :

        Word: cmeta [jbovlaste]
        Type: experimental gismu (YOU RISK BEING MISUNDERSTOOD IF YOU USE THIS WORD)
  Gloss Word: fractally applicative
  Gloss Word: meta in the sense of "X about X; fractally applicative"
  Gloss Word: meta abstraction in the sense of "X about X; fractally applicative; (pictorally, beyond, beside, or higher up)"
  Definition: x1 is meta to/an example of x2 that describes such an
       object/concept/notion/system/topic/etc., being meta in
       property/aspect x3, and which has features x4, governed
       by/considered in system/considerations/epistemology/theory x5;
       x1 is meta (a particular type of abstraction of x2 so as to
       apply to itself in some sense); x1 is an/a piece of/an example
       of x2 that applies fractally thereto
       Notes: 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.
