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: jai'i [jbovlaste]
        Type: experimental cmavo (YOU RISK BEING MISUNDERSTOOD IF YOU USE THIS WORD)
  Gloss Word: NU-type clarifier
     selma'o: JAIhI
  Definition: takes NU or LE NU, turns into sumtcita: clarifies the semantic
       NU-type of the current bridi.
       Notes: 'mi jai'i li'i klama lo zarci', 'jai'i li'i ku mi klama lo
       zarci', and 'mi klama lo zarci jai'i li'i' are all acceptable
       and equivalent. Implies '(zo'e) li'i mi klama lo zarci', but
       avoids wrapping the bridi in an abstraction that makes its
       sumti hard to access via le go'i etc. Tagged sumti, if
       present, fills the x2 of the NU; e.g. 'jai'i li'i do mi klama
       lo zarci' implies 'fe do li'i mi klama lo zarci'
