For example, if I were teaching quantum mechanics and if I were initially
talking about a continuous magnetic field, I would make certain
assertions. But then, I could say that in reality, no magnetic field is
continuous (because they are quantized too); thus, I would point out that
my new assertions are 'corrected'. (This would be done discursively.
Erasure essentially deletes the utterance from all memory as though it
never happened- it is not necessarily a correction and cannot be used for
improved approximations. Thus, this is rather similar to je'u, but not
quite the same; hence their similarity but nonidentical-ness. This is
also not quite similar to da'inai, since it is a corrected approximation
of fact, not an assertion of the reality itself.)

Likewise, my first assertions can be marked with je'aunai (or
je'aucu'i if that is more appropriate, although I opine not in this
case) and perhaps da'i.

ni'i would probably tie my statements together.

Could you please give Lojban examples for “je'au” and friends? I still
don’t quite grasp it. :-(
