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.

       Scholars dispute the size of the Norse nature spirit, the
       Dvergr. As Tolkien was inspired by the dwarves of Norse myths
       and dwarves of Germanic folklore, this word could be used to
       refer to the dwarfs of the fictional universe Middle-Earth
       (Khazad) as well, and possibly of other fantasy universes. The
       fu'ivla derived from Old Norse: dvergar; Old English: dweorg;
       Old High German: twerg.
