From Lojban
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In order to Lojbanize scientific terms to Lojban the following conventions are used:

  1. names of organs, names of widespread animals and plants are to be taken from major languages so that they are easier memorized
  2. Linnaean names, names of specific organs are to prefixed: animals with dal-, plants with spa-
  3. birds with cpi- which breaks the system of course
    dalko'ala - koala, dalgeko - gecko, cpikakadu - cockatoo
