[[BPFK Section: PEG Morphology Algorithm]]
  
It is patently obvious to some of us, including several of the more expert lojbanists, that a tense for 'again' would, at the very least, be Really Nice, if not Absolutely Necessary.

Here is a list of things that ''will not'' work:

* [[BPFK Section: The Problem With comma]]
 
 
* za'ure'u
 
** The consensus seems to be that this is "more than once", which in some contexts does the job, but certainly not in all of them.
 
 
 
***What consensus? "more than once" is ''za'uroi''. I don't see any problem with ''za'ure'u'', which means "other than the first time". --[[User:xorxes|xorxes]]
 
 
 
Possible solutions:
 
 
 
* Something like ji'are'u
 
** This would require creating a ji'a-like cmavo in PA (changing the selma'o of ji'a is right out).  It would probably mean "one more than the current value". -RobinLeePowell
 
 
 
* A member of PA meaning "the current value", call it xa'i'i, so you'd have za'uxa'i'ire'u
 
** Note that you *cannot* use VUhU before re'u.  I have no idea why.  -RobinLeePowell
 
 
 
** You seem to be looking for a way of saying "next time" rather than "again". --[[User:xorxes|xorxes]]
 
 
 
* ji'ano'ore'u
 
** Works, is almost comprehensible.  Rather ugly, though, and not as many uses as the current value PA. -RobinLeePowell
 
 
 
***Do you mean ''no'oji'are'u''? Indicators always modify the previous word. --[[User:xorxes|xorxes]]
