Some concepts are harder to express in Lojban than others... These are the fruits of sometimes extremely lengthy discussions, but are by no means to be regarded as the last word, in some cases!

Also see is this correct?

See also jbocre: what does it mean? for problems going the other way.

See Simple Phrases for a small phrase book.

Grammar

Vocabulary

Please check for existing attempts (e.g. the 1994 lujvo list, [1] before asking here. The list shouldn\'t get too openended. Asterisked entries are in lujvo list. (IMHO this list is full of misleadingly glijbo derivations, which should be carefully looked up on a rafsi list before using as a plug-in English equivalent.) True, but my point still stands...

Common sentences

A phrasebook is being created.
