Definition #71441 - Preferred [edit]
selma'o JOI
definition non-logical connective: the more ..., the more...
notes Usually connects two sentences. "broda .i jo'oi brode" means roughly "the more broda, the more brode" (German "je... desto") and more precisely "lo nu lo ni broda kei cu zenba cu nibli lo nu lo ni brode kei cu zenba". Negating one of the components (NA jo'oi NAI) changes "zenba" to "jdika", so e.g. "jo'oi nai" means "the more..., the less...". Using SE swaps the antecedent with the consequent. While this connective usually connects sentences, it is perfectly correct to use it to connect anything that non-logical connectives can. "mi ecre jo'oi certu" means "the more I practice, the more I'm skilled".
