The idea would be to redefine:

  • new-"te" to mean old-"to'ai", and new-"to'ai" to mean old-"te";
  • new-"ve" to mean old-"vo'ai", and new-"vo'ai" to mean old-"ve";
  • new-"xe" to mean old-"xo'ai", and new-"xo'ai" to mean old-"xe".
  • "se" would be unaffected.
  • The rafsi would remain associated with the word/word form/string with which they share the first vowels, so their meanings would be redefined (but their assignment wrt 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.
      • 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".
