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: rakle [jbovlaste]
        Type: experimental gismu (YOU RISK BEING MISUNDERSTOOD IF YOU USE THIS WORD)
  Gloss Word: characteristic properties in the sense of "atomic/elemental/chemical"
  Gloss Word: element type in the sense of "having shared properties"
  Gloss Word: group in the sense of "of elements/periodic table"
  Gloss Word: period in the sense of "of elements/periodic table"
  Gloss Word: periodic table
  Definition: x1 is an atomic element in group x2 [usually, vertical column;
       denotes electron configuration and, thereby, chemical
       similarity with vertical neighbors] and period x3 [usually,
       horizontal row; denotes similarity in size with horizontal
       neighbors, as well as having the same number and type of
       electron shells as them] and belonging to other
       'class'/'category'/'type'/having other properties x4  according
       to scheme/organization pattern/standard/periodic table x5.
       Notes: x4 can be any category of similar elements, such as (but not
       limited to): metals, conductors, gases (at STP), or those
       elements which obey some sort of pattern following certain
       atomic/physical/chemical characteristics (such as first
       iönization energy, stability of nucleus, abnormalities in
       electron configuration according to naïve expectations, etc.).
       Groups may (presently) be hard to name (or unsystematic in
       such) since the periodic table may be infinitely large such
       that it is equipped with an infinite number of groups between
       any two mutually nonidentical groups. For now, use cmevla or
       brivla for designating groups; optionally, pick a
       representative member of that group. Periods can be designated
       similarly or by number (counting by ones from one (being the
       period containing hydrogen)).  See also: ratykle,
       ratniklesi for non-gismu options; ratni, klesi, navni,
       kliru, cidro, tabno, kijno, gapci, xukmi
