Discussion of "dropanra zei ionti"

Comment #1: Generalizing
Curtis W Franks (Mon Mar 3 03:08:55 2014)

This construct does not perfectly generalize to, say, excitons, which are
hydrogenic but not truly ions (since they are not chemical atoms but are,
rather, strange quantum bound states of a quanton with its lack-of-self).
But, I suppose that .ionti could actually be used in Lojban with a
slightly wider meaning than "chemical ion"; it does not quite satisfy the
case for excitons or positronium, but it does work for some other weird

Ultimately, though, we are going to want a construct that means
"isoelectronic hydrogen-like bound-state".
