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 Easy French :

        Word: jvajvo [jbovlaste]
        Type: lujvo
  Definition: x1 est un lujvo régulier signifiant x2 avec les arguments x3
       construit à partit de la phrase x4 avec une structure répondant
       à la règle x5
       Notes: Au minimum la structure des arguments (terjvo) est contrainte
       et leur sémantique est tirée de la sémantique des composants du
       lujvo

From Lojban to English :

        Word: jvajvo [jbovlaste]
        Type: lujvo
  Definition: l1 is a regular/predictable lujvo (compound predicate word)
       with meaning l2 and arguments l3 built from phrase l4 and
       having an argument structure according to rule j1.
       Notes: A Lojban-specific term. The approach of jvajvo is intended to
       at least constrain what the x2, x3, x4... etc. of a lujvo may
       be, and also to draw the semantic values of those places from
       the semantic values of the places of the component brivla. The
       rationale is that the place structure of an unknown lujvo
       should not require memorization. This was previously known as
       ``dikyjvo''; a mistranslation of ``regular lujvo'', as it
       used the wrong sense of ``regular'' (see dikni).
