It might be decided in the interest of sanity that ''tcadu2'' (metropolitan area) and ''tcadu4'' (hinterland) should be dropped, because they contribute nothing to the notion of capitalhood. I think this would be wrong: this kind of dropping would not be predictable, and consistency is very important in novel place structures. Besides, a ''trutca'' is still a ''tcadu''.

Lojban should already contain semantic primes in its gismu space. Example, ckaji (kai); we have the abstractor ka.
