Definition #20563 - Preferred [edit]
definition x1 takes a fika [social institution]/coffee break together with x2 consuming food/beverage x3.
notes From the swedish word "fika". Both "fika" and "fi'ikca" are also derived from the word for coffee in respectively language (kaffi respectively ckafi). fi'ikca describes the event where you socialize with others, perhaps over a cup of coffee. In a swedish context x2 might often be friends or fellow workers, and x3 usually is coffee/squash/(tea) together with a cinnamon roll, cookie, cake, a sandwich etc. But fi'ikca could also be used in a more universal, cultural neutral sense. See also coffeehouse/coffee bar (=kafybarja), making coffee (=kafpra).

Definition #20565 [edit]
definition x1 tar en fika [social institution] tillsammans med x2 konsumerande fika (dryck/mat) x3.
notes Från svenskans ord "fika". Både det svenska och lojbanska ordet är dessutom avledda från ordet för kaffe på respektive språk (kaffi (ursprunglig svensk stavning) respektive ckafi). fi'ikca beskriver framförallt skeendet att några träffas för att få ett socialt utbyte, exv över en kopp kaffe. I en svensk kontext syftar x2 oftast på vänner eller arbetskamrater, och x3 är oftast kaffe/saft/(te) tillsammans med bulle, kaka, smörgås etc. Men fi'ikca skulle kunna användas även i andra sammanhang av icke-svenska lojban entusiaster.
