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: de'au [jbovlaste]
        Type: experimental cmavo (YOU RISK BEING MISUNDERSTOOD IF YOU USE THIS WORD)
  Gloss Word: default cancellation (across all associated terbri) in the sense of "selbri-level, permanent"
     selma'o: DEhAU
  Definition: gafyzmico: Cancellation (permanent) of all defaults in
       immediately previous word
       Notes: Cancels/overrides/ignores/"kills" all defaults (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 general in
       potential reference (modulo context) and do not necessarily
       agree with the default setting explicitly specified in the
       discourse-exterior/“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 override (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 overridden 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: dau'a, de'oi, zmico.
