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: dau'a [jbovlaste]
        Type: experimental cmavo (YOU RISK BEING MISUNDERSTOOD IF YOU USE THIS WORD)
  Gloss Word: default reset (across all associated terbri) in the sense of "selbri-level, permanent"
  Gloss Word: default restoration (across all associated terbri) in the sense of "selbri-level, permanent"
     selma'o: DEhAU
  Definition: gafyzmico: Reset all default specifications of immediately
       previous word to official definition specifications hereinafter
       (permanently)
       Notes: Restores all default specifications in the (terbri) structure
       of immediately previously uttered word so that implicit/omitted
       zo'e and di'au that may fill the terbri of that word are
       predefined/specific in reference and do indeed necessarily
       agree with the default setting explicitly specified in the
       discourse-external/“official” definition of the word. The
       terbri are not filled by this word. Usage is only meaningful
       for a brivla with at least one terbri (regardless of being
       explicitly filled or otherwise). In a tanru or other
       complicated construct, only the most recent word undergoes this
       terbri default restoration (not every term in the construct). A
       selbri converted to a sumti by gadri has the x1 terbri filled
       for the purposes of this word, but the default setting of that
       terbri is so restored all the same; likewise is the case for
       terbri accessed by be or bei; seltau in the main level of a
       sumti are filled by the gadri as well for the purposes of this
       word. Affects all future uses of the word (permanent), until
       the end of the text/conversation or explicitly undone in some
       manner. See also: doi'a, de'au, zmico.
