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: fa'ai [jbovlaste]
        Type: experimental cmavo (YOU RISK BEING MISUNDERSTOOD IF YOU USE THIS WORD)
  Gloss Word: composition in the sense of "pointwise function(al) left composition"
  Gloss Word: functional composition in the sense of "pointwise; left"
  Gloss Word: functional power in the sense of "generalized; pointwise function(al) left composition"
  Gloss Word: function composition in the sense of "pointwise, left"
  Gloss Word: iterated function in the sense of "pointwise function(al) left composition"
     selma'o: VUhU
  Definition: mathematical ordered n-ary operator: (pointwise) functional
       left composition; $X_1 \circ X_2$.
       Notes: Inputs must be appropriate functions; this outputs a function;
       follow by "ku'e (boi)" in order to include/apply the output
       function to arguments (thereby producing a number). $a_1 \circ
       a_2 \circ \dots \circ a_n = a_1(a_2(\dots(a_n(\cdot))\dots))$
       for any positive integer or countable infinity $n$ and
       functions $a_i$ for all integer $i < n+1$. Replaces all of the
       inputs with a (possibly stripped, as appropriate) tuple; for
       replacing a single argument in a multivariate function with a
       function (either evaluated or not), use (partial) (e)valuation.
       Left compose multiple terms by separating the function names
       with "boi".
