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: doi'a [jbovlaste]
        Type: experimental cmavo (YOU RISK BEING MISUNDERSTOOD IF YOU USE THIS WORD)
  Gloss Word: default restoration (across all associated terbri) in the sense of "selbri-level, temporary"
  Gloss Word: default reset (across all associated terbri) in the sense of "selbri-level, temporary"
     selma'o: DEhAU
  Definition: gafyzmico: Reset all default specification of the immediately
       previous word to their respective discourse-external/official
       definition specifications for this instance/usage only.
       Notes: Resets 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 predefined/specific in reference and do indeed
       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 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. The restoration is only effective for the single
       occurrence/instant/usage of this word (the next use of the
       affected word will be implicitly accompanied by its terbri
       defaults, as defined elsewhere (by official definition or by
       other (permanent) modifications made to the word)). See also:
