You should put in a usage note that clarifies that a string of lerfu, on its own, is a pronoun that stands for some other object, not for that string of letters, and that the way you spell something is with me'o.

I don't suppose anyone could tell me how to add a poll to this?

It's actually rather complicated. Done.

The lerfu section is OK so far as it goes, but it is not very far along: no spelling anything but Lojban, no alternate alphabets (or is that another section?), nothing about compounds (e.g., scope), usage? ... Good start, though.

Good start, though.

The lerfu section is *only* BY2 and BY*.

Why are you expecting spelling in languages other than Lojban, or alternate alphabets?

Regarding the "close-comma" paragraph, John Cowan commented:

This is historical Loglan terminology, which uses the close-comma (i.e. a comma between two letters) in this function and the open-comma (a comma followed by a space) in the function of Lojban period.

He also clarifes the inclusion of the Other Lerfu:

They were originally inserted as suggestive examples.

Use as variables in mekso:


.i fy du li cire su'i vei cy pi'i so fi'u mu ve'o


I think that should be {li fy} in this example, otherwise fy is used as a prosumti rather than as a mekso variable.
