kai'i

See poi'i.

Speculatively proposed in http://groups.yahoo.com/group/lojban/message/9301

  • And:
    • Recent distinct threads have established
    • (a) that ka is redundant, since du'u can serve all the functions of current ka
    • (b) that there is a need to be able to define reflexive selbri that can function as sumti tails, analogously to da noi ke'a ke'a lumci = something that self-washes.
    • I first propose a NU, kai'i, meaning ckaji (be le ka). Then
    • da noi ke'a ke'a lumci = lo kai'i ce'u ce'u lumci = lo ckaji be tu'o du'u ce'u ce'u lumci
    • And more generally:
    • lo broda = da noi ke'a broda = lo kai'i ce'u broda = lo ckaji be tu'o du'u ce'u broda
    • da noi mi djuno tu'o du'u ke'a broda = lo kai'i mi djuno tu'o du'u ce'u broda = lo ckaji be tu'o du'u mi djuno tu'o du'u ce'u broda
    • I secondly propose that {ka} could be redefined as equivalent to kai'i.
