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: tairjirnycukykruca [jbovlaste]
        Type: lujvo
  Gloss Word: crescent  in the sense of "idealized shape, 'horned' (partially-concave, partially-convex rounded)"
  Gloss Word: lune (concave-convex) in the sense of "idealized shape (partially-concave)"
  Definition: $x1$ is the conceptualized/ideal/abstract shape of a
       crescent/concave 'horned' (then convex rounded) form/geometric
       partially-concave lune formed by/manifested from the
       intersection $x2$ (parameters) of two-dimensional circular
       disks immersed (embedded) in geometry/defined by metric $x3$
       Notes: This word is exactly synonymous with tairmlunra; but, whereas
       that word is a zi'evla, this one is a lujvo. x2 can
       explicate any relevant characteristics and parameters that
       describe the intersection of the two-dimensional circular
       disks, such as: the radii of the circular disks, the relative
       location of their centers/perimeters, the direction in which
       the 'horns' of the crescent are facing. The shape is itself
       two-dimensional, but may be immersed/embedded in a
       greater-dimensional space or in a non-Euclidean metric (such as
       Manhattan space or spherical geometry); due to some ambiguity
       in naming of the shape in spherical geometry (confer:
       lens/tairbagycukykruca), other words are probably preferred
       for the area bounded by intersecting great circles in such a
       context (see: spherical great digon, Zweieck). The lune in this
       sense is a "filled area": it is a disk less an intersection
       (with another disk). See also: cuktai, tairmlunra,
       tairbagycukykruca, tarmi, simlu, mluni, lunra,
       plini
