From Lojban
Jump to navigation Jump to search

When worrying about whether or not a word is legal, please recall that all brivla must be stressed on the second to last syllable.

"nice fu'ivla forms" are those forms that don't contain VVV, CC/C or CCCC groups, which can never appear in lujvo, and start with one or two consonants. These nice forms are the ones that sit most comfortably among native Lojban forms.

  • VCCV iglu alga (in all cases where CC is allowed non-initially, C/C is also allowed. Those are not listed separately.
