Lojban-specific:

  • cmavo-only style[1]

Inspired by real language features:

  • sumcau staile, inspired by nounless languages like that of Salishan and Wakashan families[2].

Inspired by other constructed languages:

  • Verbless style inspired by Kēlen[3]
  • toki pona style, with e.g. anaphora instead of nested constructs ({mi pinxe lo tcati .i mi masno lonu go'i})

Inspired by fictional languages:

  • Tlön styles, from Borges’ short story. Most Tlön languages lack nouns, so sumti are either avoided or thought as a combination of properties and relations. za'a and si'au evidentials are common.
  • snanu melatlon staile: in Southern Tlön style, meaning is constructed from verbs and adverbs. Example: {mo'i ga'u ku ti'a lo zu'o ru'i flecu cu co'a mluni}.
  • berti melatlon staile: in Northern Tlön style, objects are referred to by combination of adjectives (qualities). Possible lojbanic ways to do so: ka and za'i abstractions, modals making main level bridi into such abstractions (especially kai ku and ri'i ku, also ci'o ku and mu'u ku), ca'onai and co'inai event contours, ru'i and ze'e interval properties. Example: {kai vacri je klina ne'i lo ka narju je kandi je tsani}. Note: I am tempted to replace {lo} with {me'au} in these examples, to completely avoid references to (non-abstract) objects.
  • melaxoxengron staile, inspired by “language of dreams” in Max Frei novels. Similar to (especially Northern) Tlön style; default evidential is si'au, se'o may also be used.

Inspired by programming languages:
