[[jbocre: 16:45|16:45]] <vensa> the answer to that does not involve a single {co'e} relation between the two {ma}s

[[jbocre: 16:46|16:46]] <Volatile> Hm. And the answer does not have to have the relationship pointed out?
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:47|16:47]] <@xalbo> I think there's some debate on whether one can omit {co'e} or not.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:47|16:47]] <vensa> IMO: no. the order of the sumti defines which {ma} each one is answering...
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:47|16:47]] <Volatile> Is { zo'e zo'e } a legit answer, or do you have to do { zo'e co'e lonu zo'e co'e } ? :)
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:47|16:47]] <vensa> yay! I love debate :)
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:47|16:47]] <@xalbo> {zo'e zo'e} is absolutely a legit answer.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:48|16:48]] <@xalbo> And there's also a {bu'a} such that {mi ti bu'a} is the same as {mi djica lo nu mi ti cliva}, it's just a complicated one :)

[[jbocre: 16:50|16:50]] <@xalbo> I'm not sure, actually. With one place free, I can use ckaji, but there needs to be something for more variables.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:51|16:51]] <Volatile> Is it always possible to interpret the answers as full structures omitting a lot of relation wordsL
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:51|16:51]] <Volatile> s/L/?/
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:51|16:51]] <@xalbo> That is, {ckaji lo ka ce'u xi pa djica lo nu ce'u xi pa ce'u xi re cliva} is *almost* it, but not quite.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:51|16:51]] <vensa> xalbo: I dont follow. but I gather that's the argument &amp;quot;for&amp;quot; including {co'e}. i.e. saying that there IS &amp;quot;some&amp;quot; selbri that relates the two sumti, so that selbri can be {co'e} even if its unclear what {co'e} actually is...?

[[jbocre: 16:52|16:52]] <vensa> wow! that was beautifuly complicated
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:52|16:52]] <vensa> I think I understood the &amp;quot;gist&amp;quot; of it
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:52|16:52]] <@xalbo> {djica co cliva} is pretty darn close, of course :)

[[jbocre: 16:53|16:53]] <vensa> but an *exact* selbri is possible? because {ckaji} isnt *exactly* the same.... even if it were gramaticaly standardised to use all those {xi}s
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:54|16:54]] <@xalbo> So, absent a question we're answering, {mi lo mensi be do} is a grammatical utterance, and {mi co'e lo mensi be do} is a grammatical and sensible utterance. The question is whether the former has the same meaning/interpretation as the latter.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:54|16:54]] <vensa> also: I misunderstand {ce'uxipa ce'uxire}. y not just {ce'uxire}
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:54|16:54]] <@xalbo> I wanted {mi ti cliva}, not {ti cliva}
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:55|16:55]] <vensa> oh &amp;quot;I leave here&amp;quot;.. ok
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:56|16:56]] <@xalbo> And I'm not even sure what your question about an exact selbri means.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:56|16:56]] <vensa> xalbo: but still: {mi ti ckaji lo ka ce'u xi pa djica lo nu ce'u xi pa ce'u xi re cliva} puts {ti} in the x2 of ckaji. not in the ce'uxire
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 16:58|16:58]] <vensa> I think that {mi co'e lo mensi be do} means that there is an expressable relationship between me and your sister. wether we want to allow using {co'e} even in cases where that relationship cannot be exactly expressed (in the same form as it were expressed in the question) is what the debate is about (I reckon )

[[jbocre: 17:02|17:02]] <@xalbo> I assert that it means there is a relationship that is relevant to the conversation, not that it can necessarily be expressed *simply*.

[[jbocre: 17:02|17:02]] <kribacr> Today seems like a slow day, so I may have time for a lesson in a few hours.

[[jbocre: 17:03|17:03]] <@xalbo> If there is a relationship that cannot be expressed, then lojban is utterly broken. I do not believe that is the case, though.

[[jbocre: 17:03|17:03]] <kribacr> On the subject of implied co'e, if that's what you're talking about, I'm sort of a proponent for it.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:03|17:03]] <selpa`i> I know, xalbo is a nice teacher as well

[[jbocre: 17:04|17:04]] <vensa> xalbo: expressed with a single selbri. how? you cant even express a simple {ma broda lonu brode ma} with a single selbri, so what will you do with a huge number of {ma}s?
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:04|17:04]] <@xalbo> Anyway, I'd love to have a word that means &amp;quot;x1 (relation with an arbitrary number of empty spots marked by ce'u) is true with x2 filling ce'u1, x3 filling ce'u2, etc&amp;quot;
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:04|17:04]] <selpa`i> But it's unclear whether that person will actually do it.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:05|17:05]] <vensa> xalbo: that would probably solve it
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:05|17:05]] <vensa> but as of currently, it seems that lojban is broken
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:05|17:05]] <vensa> IF you add the implied co'e
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:05|17:05]] <selpa`i> Does anyone happen to have the old chatlogs

[[jbocre: 17:06|17:06]] <vensa> I think Hugglesworth has a bunch of logs on his machine. maybe they go back 2 yrs

[[jbocre: 17:06|17:06]] <@xalbo> vensa: The point is that that's a content word (it's just a selbri), and that the class of selbri is wide open. I could coin a fu'ivla that means just that, and there you go.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:07|17:07]] <vensa> hmmmmm
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:07|17:07]] <vensa> but the original question did not use the fu'ivla. so is it still the same thing?
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:07|17:07]] <@xalbo> There's nothing *fundamentally* unexpressible about that.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:08|17:08]] <vensa> yeah. I suppose I could/should be accepted (an implied co'e)
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:08|17:08]] <vensa> so, whats the main argument AGAINST?

[[jbocre: 17:08|17:08]] <vensa> it filters out the english
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:09|17:09]] <soto> oh right
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:09|17:09]] <@xalbo> I'm not sure. And I was previously somewhat against it. But I really don't have a good argument against it.

[[jbocre: 17:09|17:09]] <vensa> this is exactly what my discussion topics log is for
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:09|17:09]] <@xalbo> I tend to include explicit {co'e}, but I'm not sure there's a reason to do so.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:09|17:09]]  * vensa is archiving
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:09|17:09]] <kribacr> I think the problem with implied {co'e} is when people just speak vocatives.

[[jbocre: 17:11|17:11]] <vensa> dunno. and if there is. what harm does it do?
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:11|17:11]] <kribacr> If there is, is it harmless?
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:11|17:11]] <kribacr> Right.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:11|17:11]] <vensa> I think its harmless
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:11|17:11]] <kribacr> I'm just playing devil's advocate here.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:12|17:12]] <vensa> obviously, if I am addressing you, I am telling you something

[[jbocre: 18:08|18:08]] <@xalbo> The point is that if newI is for answering, then oldI (spelled {.i}) keeps its completely normal function, which just happens to work out to question dodging.

[[jbocre: 18:10|18:10]] <UukGoblin> hm.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:11|18:11]] <dbrock-> I have long been an advocate of thinking of {UI ja'ai} and {UI nai} as completely separate scales

[[jbocre: 18:12|18:12]] <UukGoblin> with stuff like 'paunai', what is there to distinguish between definitions like 'answer follows', 'no question follows' or 'unquestion follows'?
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:12|18:12]] <dbrock-> that's why I said &amp;quot;if I got to choose, {pau nai} would mean &amp;quot;answer follows&amp;quot; &amp;quot;

[[jbocre: 18:12|18:12]] <vensa> I read that as that
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:13|18:13]] <vensa> who cares about the old meaning of {paunai} its probably rarely been used

[[jbocre: 18:13|18:13]] <@xalbo> (Note that I also didn't say &amp;quot;we need a new I&amp;quot; but &amp;quot;a case could be made for a new I&amp;quot;

[[jbocre: 18:15|18:15]] <vensa> I am very much an advocate of changing the old for the benefit of the future. as an answer to the nay-saying conservatives I have proposed the &amp;quot;version\scripting&amp;quot; system
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:15|18:15]] <UukGoblin> cementing is a popular technique of postponing trouble with blown up nuclear reactors for later
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:15|18:15]] <vensa> uuk: regular {i} is the first. and you cant obliterate a question once it was asked. you can just choose to not answer it with regular {i}

[[jbocre: 18:17|18:17]] <UukGoblin> vensa, nah, it's kinda not my question... my problem is {pau nai} is a cluster, but because {pau} can be negated in different ways, doesn't it make {pau nai} a bit ambiguous?

[[jbocre: 17:33|17:33]] <ksion> ji'i
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:33|17:33]] <vensa> so basically the questioner forces the listener to respond to their question, even if its with a vague answer, get the question &amp;quot;out of the way&amp;quot; before he can say anything?

[[jbocre: 17:48|17:48]] <ksion> vensa: You can extract a place from any number of nested abstractions be using an appropriate number of {jai} and SE.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:48|17:48]] <@xalbo> It seems wrong that we use the same cmavo ({.i}) for starting a new complete bridi, and for filling in sequential fragments of someone else's bridi.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:49|17:49]] <Volatile> &amp;quot;facepalm&amp;quot; sounds like some kind of tree to me. Guess it's some malglico...
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:49|17:49]] <vensa> I think we should decide between 3 options: 1. you need to say {co'e} and {ji'i} for every question to get it out of the way first (i dont like this option) 2. you say {ta'a} or {ni'o} or something to imply that you are NOT answering the question 3. you use {ni'au} for cases when you want to indicate that you ARE answering
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:49|17:49]] <vensa> xalbo: &amp;quot;seems wrong&amp;quot; is a bit short of an argument IMO
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:50|17:50]] <selpa`i> #3 seems terrible
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:50|17:50]] <ksion> 4. You say what you want since question aren't grammatically binding.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:50|17:50]] <vensa> ksion: ki'e
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:50|17:50]] <selpa`i> I like 4 the best.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:50|17:50]] <vensa> ksion: if 4, then who knows whether I'm answering you or not?
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:51|17:51]] <selpa`i> Context.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:51|17:51]] <vensa> I can imagine cases where it's unclear from context
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:51|17:51]]  * Volatile does not like &amp;quot;

[[jbocre: 17:51|17:51]] <vensa> so what if &amp;quot;natlangs get away with it&amp;quot;
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:51|17:51]] <selpa`i> Sure, but in those cases, you can clarify.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:51|17:51]] <ksion> &amp;quot;What are you doing?&amp;quot; &amp;quot;Raining&amp;quot;
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:51|17:51]] <@xalbo> Well, 4 is always going to be the most common, and with good reason. But it still seems important (there's that &amp;quot;seems&amp;quot; again) to be able to specify one way or another.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:53|17:53]] <Volatile> I'd say that in this language more than others, specificity matters...
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:54|17:54]] <vensa> wouldnt it be prettier if lojban had an elegent way to deal with it?

[[jbocre: 17:54|17:54]] <vensa> selpa'i: calrifying with more sentences is exaclty the thing we want to avoid in lojban
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:54|17:54]] <@xalbo> The example I use before, I think, was {.i do catra le nolraitru ki'u lo nu mo}. Answering {co'e} there is a bad idea.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:55|17:55]] <selpa`i> Is that so?
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:55|17:55]] <@xalbo> ksion: Problem is that {na'i} isn't avoiding an answer, it's specifically saying that there *isn't* one.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:55|17:55]] <vensa> xalbo: yes! thank you! the {catra} example
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:56|17:56]] <vensa> .ie on the {na'i} not working
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:56|17:56]] <vensa> {na'i} is something else
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:56|17:56]] <selpa`i> Why did you kill the monarch?
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:56|17:56]] <@xalbo> If you ask the above catra question, I can't plead the fifth in Lojban. I can use {na'}, or I can give a reason, but I can't just say &amp;quot;I want a lawyer!&amp;quot; without that being my answer for why I killed him.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:57|17:57]] <ksion> je'e
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:58|17:58]] <ksion> Then that's why we have {na'i}.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:59|17:59]] <@xalbo> {na'i} doesn't do that, though. It says that the question itself is wrong (in this case, because I didn't kill him), not that I'm not going to answer it.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:59|17:59]] <vensa> ksion {na'i catra .i mi djica tu'a la'oi lawyer}?
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:59|17:59]]  * Volatile klama .i co'o
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 17:59|17:59]] <ksion> vensa: {na'i} is UI. Thus {.i go'i na'i}
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:00|18:00]] <vensa> xalbo: so why not {i go'i na'i .i <what you want to say>}
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:00|18:00]] <@xalbo> That means {mi catra le nolraitru ki'u lo nu no'a na'i}, which sure seems b0rken to me.

[[jbocre: 18:06|18:06]] <ksion> Congratulations. You made me use the biggest cannon.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:06|18:06]] <labnytru> How many of you know what SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is?

[[jbocre: 18:08|18:08]] <@xalbo> labnytru: I only know of SEO as &amp;quot;Evil people trying to hijack Google to show me what they want instead of what I want.&amp;quot;
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:08|18:08]] <ksion> (Although I still think xalbo misunderstands {na'i} giving it less &amp;quot;power&amp;quot; than it really has)
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:08|18:08]] <labnytru> Good enough answer, although it doesn't have to be that way.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:09|18:09]] <labnytru> Ultimately, you could have a website with valuable information related to the keyword and not have it show up on Google because of it's lack of optimization.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:09|18:09]] <ksion> {na'i} is metalinguistic. It invalidates EVERYTHING linguistically associated with statement it marks. It does not only negate the &amp;quot;truth case&amp;quot;, but also &amp;quot;false case&amp;quot;.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:09|18:09]] <@xalbo> Point.
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:09|18:09]] <vensa> xalbo: why not go with option2? {do pu catra lo nulraitru ki'u lonu mo} -> {ni'o mi djica tu'a la'oi lawyer}
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:10|18:10]] <labnytru> Well, with that in mind...
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:10|18:10]] <vensa> xalbo: does &amp;quot;point&amp;quot; mean you agree about {na'i} with ksion?
 
 
 
[[jbocre: 18:10|18:10]] <@xalbo> It means that ksion made a good point about {na'i}, and I'm stepping back to reconsider in light of that.
