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: di'au [jbovlaste]
        Type: experimental cmavo (YOU RISK BEING MISUNDERSTOOD IF YOU USE THIS WORD)
  Gloss Word: discourse-interior default it
     selma'o: KOhA7
  Definition: pro-sumti and sumyzmico: discourse-interior default it
       (terbri-specific)
       Notes: Explicitly and emphatically references the specified default
       value of the relevant terbri as specified/designated by the
       discourse; thus, its value is context-dependent and subject to
       specification modifications. It does not necessarily reference
       the value defined "officially". (zo'e, implicit or explicit,
       may do so as well, but the use of this word implies some degree
       of a more deliberate choice to follow the default
       specification.) When a default of the terbri is not specified
       by the previous discourse (nor by the discourse-exterior
       "official" definition of the terbri if not specification
       modifications have been made previously), this word is
       equivalent to completely general and elliptical zo'e. See
       also: di'oi, di'ei.
