# Missing predicates

Here is a place for storing known missing predicates which haven't got yet any word in Lojban.

li'a dai, this page should be crowded beyond imagination, but that's not yet the case fortunately. :P

## List

• to hesitate / to be hesitant
• X distinguishes Y from Z
• X confuses Y with Z / X gets Y and Z mixed up
• "to convince" and its derivatives. "x1 (event) convinces x2 (object) to do x3 (property of x1)"
• randa - how to say "I surrended and did it"?
• x1 surrenders x2 (e.g. army) to enemy x3
• "to refuse" is of similar meaning: I refused to do it. co'u/na fapro? does this lead to randa being useless?
• traffic jam
• klafle nunselzu'i ~ nunseldicra? fleselzu'ifau?
• tsani's recursive predicate
• <tsani> .i lo ka broda cu ka ko'a ko'e fo'a fo'e ce'ai lo du'u fo'a li pa dubmau kei goi dy zo'u ge ganai me'au dy gi ko'a me'au fo'e lo broda be ko'e bei li mo'e fo'a vu'u pa bei fo'e gi ga me'au dy gi ko'a ko'e me'au fo'e
• splicing time intervals like "next second, next hour", "the third month"
• chirality
• rotation problem isnt really solved by carna4. "Turn right" vs. "turn counterclockwise". Depends on line if sight which has left-right / up-down orientation.
• speed. pi'ai/te'ai is the onyl solution by now. lo mitre be li panono ca lo'e cacra or similar might be another solution.

## Archives

• whether x1 happens depends on whether x2 happens (or similar) -- maybe fancu?
• fancuka
• discussed in mriste: xorxes and gleki. The solution is that either fancu should be repurposed or a new brivla necessary. I chose {funsi} = x1 depends on x2. {fancu} retained it places structure
• hearsay
• to be worth doing -- jerna, te prali?
• inda
• jerna is rather "he is worth paying/praying for/being awarded" but usually not "doing" (although, "he is worth doing a favor to him" fits)
• to be loyal
• to betray (probably polysemic)
• traide
• x1 violates their allegiance like e.g. betrays his/her country
• x1 is guilty of treason
• x1 in breach of trust, delivers his country to x2 (enemy). See "surrender to ...", or yields up any fort or place intrusted to his defense, or surrenders an army or body of troops to the enemy, unless when vanquished; also, one who takes arms and levies war against his country; or one who aids an enemy in conquering his country.
• x1 betrays any confidence or trust (as a consequence of the previous meaning of "betray").
