Discussion of "atriium"
[parent] [root]
Comment #1: cmevla, not brivla
Curtis W Franks (Wed Apr 12 20:29:14 2017)

This word is morphologically incorrect. I suggest adding a vowel ("-u" in
my preference) or deleting the final consonant (cluster) "m".

The server did not accept my initial suggestion 'atriiume' therefore I
tried 'atriium' instead. But it does very spefically refer to a word from
latin so that is why I stayed close to the original ( like: spagetis ) It
was adopted into English ( and Dutch btw ) without change also.

Oh, yeah. That is a tosmabru. Sorry. I did not pay attention to that,
earlier.

It still needs to be a brivla though.

Yes, that makes sense and is good. The right morphology would be that of a
fu'ivla, which is appropriate.

This is irrelevant because we are discussing - in particular - Lojban
morphology, which is bijective with the classing of a word. cmevla classing
is wrong for this meaning.

You could make the initial syllable "-ar" instead of just "a-". That would
eliminate a lot of the tosmabru gotchas. Then you just craft the ending to
your preference, so long as it ends with a vowel and follows the form of a
brivla in all other properties.

I will add a new word with your suggestion then, does this entry delete
itself?

atriium zei kumfa, atriium zei briju depending on meaning chosen might
be other choices.

What do you mean exactly? And how do I do that? Also, I applied the
suggestions given above and now defined the word as 'artriiume' instead of
'atriium'.

I mean that "atrium" has at least two meanings:

You may wish to add those lujvo.
atriium zei kumfa and atriium zei briju are lujvo.
You can enter them as words.
