It's a good idea to map words to less polysemous operators like in MatLab.
P.S. I wish you created more brivla rather than cmavo connectives.

I agree.
Re: P.S. Unfortunately, that is not really how the language works; mekso operators almost surely should be cmavo. There are a few cases for brivla being useful (such as with .aigne), but those ideas are not really operators. :/
