# a Vague PA

(Redirected from A Vague PA)
 vensa ma jdima lonu curmi doi tomoj
 tomoj is there a vague PA
 selckiku i don't mind malgli, that's a fine way to say it, it just makes me wonder
 vensa selckiku: the bomb is about to go off :)tomoj: ji'i
 selckiku huh, a vague pa, that's a cool idea, there isn't is there??
 tomoj the thing is, I don't even know the numbernor whether it's typical
 vensa you can use za'u
 tomoj I just know it's in the hundreds
 vensa or su'o
 selckiku ji'i makes any PA a little vaguer, you can't use it on its own can you?
 vensa so za'u panono
 tomoj so I was thinking XX no no
 vensa selckiku: y not?
 selckiku i dunno, i'd just never seen it
 tomoj well..
 selckiku what selma'o is zo ji'i anywayzo ji'i cmavo ma
 tomoj 10000 is za'u pa no no, isn't it?
 valsi ji'i = digit/number: approximately (default the typical value in this context) (number).
 vensa tomoj: you can try xo paunai no no
 tomoj it's PA
 selckiku ok then, i guess li ji'i is a pretty vague number then
 vensa selckiku: is za'u panono = "more than one hundred" or "10000"?
 valsi za'u = digit/number: greater than.
 selckiku 10000 is more than 100, sure
 vensa yeah but what is the meaning of the lojban?oh waitnm.tomoj wasnt arguing with meI was including "10000" as a referent of za'u panono
 selckiku it's a somewhat unusual meaning of za'upanono but it depends on the context
 tomoj I want X00 where X is a single digit 1-9
 vensa doi tomoj no'i xu do kakne lonu se pendo lo mlatu poi bartutomoj: then you need a regex :P
 tomoj hmm, is there enough cmavo space open to translate regex into lojban? :)
 valsi boxfo = x1 is a sheet/foil/blanket [2-dimensional shape/form flexible in 3 dimensions] of material x2.no'o = digit/number: typical/average value.
 selckiku the cmavo space is rather busy, really
 vensa how about {no'o no no}?if anything, it sounds hilarious
