> True. That is weird to me, but maybe that should just be used instead.

Other differences:

Error quotes are formal and are basically just taken as a string. In order
to obtain the referent thereof, at least «la'e zei» must be appended to
the beginning; otherwise, the lujvo has a quote in it (which may be useful
for saying ""CCVC"-form words", for example). Although «zei'ei»-quotes
currently must be grammatical (this functionality could be expanded if
doing so is desired), the referent is automatically extracted.

The result is treated as a single rafsi. Thus it may be quoted by
«ra'oi», howsoever useful that may end up being. Additionally, the
quoted text is treated as a single, whole semantic unit without internal
components- this may be useful for saying "doghouse-builder', for a lame
example, wherein "doghouse" is analyzed as a single atom of meaning.

This also allows for implementing the empty rafsi, if that is interesting
to anyone, lol.

«la'e lo'u le'u zei» might work but it could also mean "the referent of
the empty string", whatsoever that means. Without «la'e», it would be
the empty string itself in rafsi form. Neither of these is actually the
empty rafsi.
