The idea would be to redefine:

  • new-"te" so as to mean old-"to'ai", and new-"to'ai" so as to mean old-"te";
    • Thus, if this proposal were to be adopted (so all words would have their new meanings) and
      if the original selbri had its sumti slots ordered as: x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 ..., then:
      "te" would drag-and-drop the third sumti slot to the first position, resulting in ordering: x3 x1 x2 x4 x5 ...;
      and "to'ai" would transpose the third and first sumti slot with one another, resulting in ordering: x3 x2 x1 x4 x5 ...
  • new-"ve" so as to mean old-"vo'ai", and new-"vo'ai" so as to mean old-"ve";
  • new-"xe" so as to mean old-"xo'ai", and new-"xo'ai" so as to mean old-"xe".
  • "se" would be unaffected.
  • The rafsi would remain associated with the word/word form/string with which they share their first vowels, so their meanings would be redefined (but their assignment wrt word/word form/string would be unchanged).
    • Thus, for example: new-"-ter-" would be assigned to new-"te" and would mean old-"to'ai"/old-"-toz-" (if that rafsi is accepted); new-"-toz-" would be assigned to new-"to'ai" and would mean old-"te"/old-"-ter-". Etc.
      "terbroda" would decompose to "te broda" and would have ordering: x3 x1 x2 x4 x5 ...;
      meanwhile, "tozbroda" would decompose to "to'ai broda" and would have ordering: x3 x2 x1 x4 x5 ...
      • If the rafsi for "te" becomes "-tel-", then exchange "-ter-" with "-tel-" throughout this example.


This would require a substantial reworking of lujvo.

It might be worth it, though, if we feel that drag-and-drop conversion is easier/requires less brain-power or is more natural. Note that rafsi ending in "l" or "r" are more coveted than those which end in "z".
