Principal purpose of this list is to explore ways to use Lojban different from Indo-European natlang ways.

Lojban-specific

  • cmavo-only style[1]

Inspired by real language features

  • sumcau staile, inspired by nounless languages like that of Salishan and Wakashan families[2][3].

Inspired by other constructed languages

  • Verbless style inspired by Kēlen[4]. See the draft.
  • toki pona style, with e.g. anaphora instead of nested constructs ({mi pinxe lo tcati .i mi masno lonu go'i}). Vocabulary might or might not be restricted.

Inspired by fictional languages

  • Tlön styles, from Borges’ short story. Most Tlön languages lack nouns, so sumti are either avoided or thought of as combinations of properties and/or relations. za'a and si'au evidentials are common.
  • snanu .utloine staile: in Southern Tlön style, meaning is constructed from verbs and adverbs. Example:
mo'i ga'u ku ti'a lo zu'o ru'i flecu cu co'a mluni
  • berti .utloine staile: in Northern Tlön style, objects are referred to by combination of adjectives (qualities). Possible lojbanic ways to do so: ka and za'i abstractions, modals making main level bridi into such abstractions (especially kai ku and ri'i ku, also ci'o ku and mu'u ku), ca'o nai and co'i nai event contours, ru'i and ze'e interval properties. Example:
kai vacri je gusni ne'i lo kai'u narju je kandi je tsani


Note: I am tempted to replace {lo zu'o} and {lo kai'u} with something other in these examples, to completely avoid references to (non-abstract) objects.


  • melaxoxengron staile, inspired by “language of dreams” in Max Frei novels. Similar to (especially Northern) Tlön style; default evidential is si'au, se'o may also be used.

Inspired by programming languages

Miscellaneous

  • Stack staile, based on proglangs like Forth and PostScript and conlangs like Fith and Nalnuàntir[6]
  • Improvements of mekso, e.g. fancu bridi mekso proposal[7]
