Adnex-bound pro-sumti and zo'au

zo'au KOhA
begin postnex
  • Every zo'au corresponds to an implicit or explicit zo'u in the same bridi. zo'u...zo'au correspondences nest. Every implicit or explicit zo'u terminates a prenex. Every zo'au begins a postnex. A postnex and its matching prenex jointly form an adnex. Scope of elements within the same adnex is left-to-right: the earlier element has scope over the later. Items in an outer adnex have scope over every item in an inner adnex.

  • Binding of adnex-bound pro-sumti in a prenex. The nth adnex-bound pro-sumti in a prenex is bound by the nth adnex-bound pro-sumti in the postnex portion of the same adnex.
  • Binding of adnex-bound pro-sumti, A, that is not in a prenex:
    • If there is another adnex-bound pro-sumti, P, in a prenex with scope over A, and P and A have the same shape, then P binds A.
    • Otherwise, A is bound by sumti S (as if S were S goi A), where S is the leftmost sumti satisfying the following conditions:
      • S is in an adnex with scope over A.
      • S is not a quantified da-series KOhA.
      • S does not already contain a goi KOhA.
      • S does not already bind an earlier adnex-bound pro-sumti.
  • I think the above requires a better explanation, as it sounds like it could be useful - but everything below here seems like frivolous ways to save syllables. It is not a flaw in Lojban if sentences happen to be longer than their English equivalents! --rab.spir
  • And Rosta:
    • It is a flaw in Lojban if we shun the precision it affords us just because the precision requires too much verbosity. There is no implicit comparison to English; English is incapable of the precision, fullstop.
