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.


1 definition found
From Lojban to English :

        Word: terjonle'u [jbovlaste]
        Type: lujvo
  Gloss Word: hyphen letter in the sense of "joins words/morphemes/particles into a single cohesive, grammatical unit"
  Gloss Word: hyphen letteral in the sense of "joins words/morphemes/particles into a single cohesive, grammatical unit"
  Definition: x1 (letteral: la'e zo BY/word-bu) is a hyphen/joining
       letter(al) in language x2 with function in/context of use/with
       rules for use/with properties x3, joining prefixed
       unit/lexeme/morpheme/string x4 (quote) to postfixed
       unit/lexeme/morpheme/string x5 (quote) in construct (full word)
       x6 (quote)
       Notes: x1 joins words/morphemes/particles into a single cohesive,
       grammatical unit. x4 and x5 may be improper quotes. In English,
       "-" is such a hyphen letteral; in Lojban, ybu, ry, ny,
       and ly are such hyphen letterals (arguably, as is y'y). The
       fact that the letteral is used to join words is implicit and
       this function therefore need not be specified in x3 in most
       cases.
