ce ki tau jau
|This page contains discussions of experimental/scientific/philosophical/logical aspects of Lojban that are|
non-official and not for everyday usage. You've been warned.
The ce-ki-tau-jau (and occasionally joined by du) dialect of Lojban has certain CV'V cmavo swapped with similar CV cmavo, as those CV'V are (far) more useful than the CV.
- ce'u becomes ce
- ke'a becomes ki
- tu'a becomes tau
- jo'u becomes jau
- du'u becomes du
Due to the proliferation of fancylojban and the general idea of the type system, ce'u and tu'a become very important cmavo, for maintaining precision and type-correctness, respectively. As for ke'a, it sees far more use than ki, and becomes especially useful with the proposal for new voi. jo'u has increased in usefulness due to the introduction of plural logic by xorlo.
