From Lojban

JCB's daughter.

There is an anecdote about Jenny that dates back to Old Loglan days, before the GMR. The Loglan equivalent of se is (and always has been) nu. It was typical in those days to create lujvo by smushing together cmavo and bits of gismu in an irreversible way, as rafsi did not exist: for example, nu broda (the x2 conversion of broda) might have the lujvo equivalent nubro.

Jenny learned some correlative pair, I don't remember exactly which one. Suppose it was cninu (x1 is younger than x2) and nucni (nu cninu). She then overgeneralized the apparent reversal, and started to say *piska for nu skapi!

Now runs TLI: & appears to respect Lojban fine (they link here).
