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: ratniklesi [jbovlaste]
        Type: fu'ivla
  Gloss Word: characteristic properties in the sense of "atomic/elemental/chemical"

  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: Non-gismu version of rakle. 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:
       rakle, ratykle; ratni, klesi, navni, kliru,
       cidro, tabno, kijno, gapci, xukmi
