# xoi

 du'eroiToo many times
 du'exoiToo much; too true
 le jai xoi = le jei noxoi = na
• la xod:
This is most useful for digits du'e, rau, mo'a. We need a way to access d/dt xoi, to express increase/decrease of the bridi's truth value over time.
• Jay:
What selma'o, if any, does it fall into? The current description makes it seem to me, at least, a bit vague. Could we get some full example bridi, too? :) (it seems like one of the more interesting experimental cmavo, fwiw)
• la xod:
• selma'o ROI might be sufficient, since it's a parallel of roi.

le xirma cu rauxoi blabi = The horse is white enough.

• Now I am looking for values I can prepend to xoi to end up with an increasing/decreasing tense, such that

le xirma cu daxoi blabi = The horse is increasingly white.

• I considered and rejected ma'u and ni'u.
• Perhaps you need xe'u alongside xoi as re'u is to roi. Then you'd have
• piroxe'u = mo'u completion
• piso'uxe'u= co'a starting
• pidu'exe'u = za'o
• piza'uxe'u = increasingly
• pimuxe'u = half-way there
• xorxes:
However, I would suggest using something other than xoi and xe'u, as they may sound too similar to roi and re'u.
On further thought, we may even be able to use roi and re'u themselves for this. With integers, they indicate number of times. With fractionals, they indicate how much of a time it really is (to what extent the horse is white):

le xirma pirauroi blabi = The horse is white enough.

le xirma piso'uroi blabi = The horse is barely white.

le xirma piza'ure'u blabi = The horse is increasingly white.

I don't see why roi should get a new meaning with a fraction.
le xirma pirauroi blabi quite clearly means The horse is white enough of the time.
• xorxes:
Enough of one time, but less than one time, not quite one time. I don't think the English idioms "most of the time", "some of the time", etc. translate with roi, or do they?
• Right, of course. Enough of the time is simply rauroi, most of the time is so'eroi. pirauroi refers to a portion of a time, but it still refers to a time/occurence and not amount of truth. I'm not sure what a portion of a time means.
• xorxes:
Who said that roi refers to time? It refers to instances. I think that fractional instances is at least one possible reading of fractional "amount of truth". Not quite one instance but not quite no instances either.
