Definition #69097 - Preferred [edit]
selma'o KOhA7
definition end connective string, set, list such that the set of terms provided is exhaustive.
notes The use of this word in a connective string indicates that the connectands (or entries in a list or elements in the set) are all of the terms for which the speaker knows/intends/believes the statement to be true. Nothing else can fill that terbri or be term in the list or set in that terbri, according to the speaker; those terms which are explicitly mentioned form a complete set of possible terms. "la .alys. .e la .bab. .e tu'oi'e broda" means that Alice brodas, Bob brodas, and no-one else brodas. In some contexts "no lo drata" may not be terribly appropriate or clean; this word should satisfy this need. It differs from simply terminating the terbri because that, in some contexts, leaves open the possibility that the terms explicitly mentioned are all good but the set of terms provided is not exhaustive. tu'oi is an empty term; this term is empty but also completes the list in theory.
