A string begins with a brivla if it does not begin with a cmavo and consists of any number of jbocre: Morphology: rafsi nitial-rafsi (possibly none) followed by a brivla-core.

A brivla-core is the part of a brivla that carries the penultimate stress. It can be a fu'ivla, a gismu, a jbocre: Morphology: rafsi VV-final-rafsi or a short-lujvo.

A short-lijvo consists of a jbocre: Morphology: rafsi tressed-initial-rafsi and a jbocre: Morphology: rafsi hort-final-rafsi.

Note that a CVV-final-rafsi needs at least one initial-rafsi in front in order to constitute a brivla, otherwise it will be taken as a cmavo.

A lujvo is any brivla that is not only a gismu or only a fu'ivla.
