Would you recommend using this word for mathematics (where one spells words over some alphabet of, say, group elements, yielding a quantity (which is called the word))?

How do you consider using valsi in a mathematical context?
I would use plain lerpoi (the definition I entered, by tsani), with lerpoi1 being the sequence of generators and lerpoi3 being their value.

I guess you could alternatively use valsi (or a lujvo based on it) as
"x1 is a sequence of generators with value x2 in group presentation x3",
with valsi2 being the mathematical word.

That’s WAY too far off from the original definitions. Those definitions certainly would need new words.

Ok, this is more for fun than for the original point, but here is a PEG for the Klein group
I < e I  a A  b B  c C  eps A < e A  a I  b C  c B B < e B  a C  b I  c A C < e C  a B  b A  c I
More trivially, it is straightforward to define an attribute grammar for computing the product of a sequence of elements.
So, we do have words (the sequences), interpretations for these words (the values) and rules for how to determine the meaning of a composition of them from its parts (the group operation).

That is what I was thinking. One could always tack on a seltau indicating 'math'ness on some level.
