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: jifpedvla [jbovlaste]
        Type: lujvo
  Gloss Word: false friend in the sense of "word"
  Definition: x1 is a "false friend" (word in different language that looks
       or sounds similar, but differs significantly in meaning) to x2,
       meaning x3 in language x4.
       Notes: This is a cimjvo, with a rather obvious calque from a
       metaphor common to many languages. See valsi, smuni,
       bangu. Synonymous to pevjifpedvla.
