    • Me too, but there are certain lujvo that have gained enough of a meaning that they are recommended in daily use. I do not even know what kai is a rafsi for, though I use the words javnakai and tavlakai. You won't find anyone saying bridi valsi or se cmavo - only brivla and selma'o.
      • javnakai is a type-4 fu'ivla. ta vlakai means "that has wordness".
        • I did not invent these lujvo, and they are both bad. javnakai should be javnikai, and tavlakai falis the tosmabru test. But they are used. Uh-oh.
        • Sorry, just rechecked where they first popped up. All that over nothing: It's javnykai and tavlykai.
      • kai is a rafsi for ckaji, which means to have a property, since everything which has a given property has that property, -kai doesn't change the meaning. (mi na tugni di'u Well, what's the difference then?) Use something like -smi, -(sel)te'i, or -cfu.
