The Lojban I speak

The Lojban I speak

by la lalxu (Lynn)

This is a list of ways in which my dialect of Lojban differs from the dialect described in The Complete Lojban Language. Most people on the #lojban IRC channel seem to accept and use most of these changes, as well.

The sections marked with an asterisk are approved as part of “base Lojban” by the BPFK (through a voting process). The other sections are simply unofficial additions that people (including me) like enough to use in daily conversation, because they make the language nicer and simpler.



In CLL Lojban, cmevla and fu'ivla are allowed to contain consonant-glide-vowel sequences like in kuin (Queen). Because it wasn’t clear where it was a good idea to allow them, the BPFK banned them everywhere! Now you can’t have a glide immediately after a consonant anymore, and you need to insert a vowel, writing kuuín (Ku-ween).


About this guide

This is a brief introduction to Lojban, a constructed human language. It has a very nice, fun, regular grammar that computers and humans alike can understand easily.

Basic grammar

All Lojban words are either particles (tiny words that help the grammar) or verbs (which tell us how nouns relate).

A Lojban sentence consists of a main verb with a bunch of nouns plugged into it.

A Lojban verb definition looks like this:

Lojban words for cultures based on ISO country codes

Lojban words for cultures based on ISO country codes

Many Lojbanists dislike the cultural gismu: merko, fraso, gento, etc. If some cultures get them, and others do not, they’re very direct evidence that Lojban doesn’t treat all cultures the same way, violating one of its own foundational principles (cultural neutrality)!

On the experimental rafsi page, a new system involving the rafsi -goi- is proposed:

-goi- is a proposed special rafsi, modifying the previous rafsi to indicate “cultural rafsi”. This allows rafsi with existing assignments to also be assigned to a culture, giving more space for each major culture to get a rafsi. e.g. -sfegoi- might be able to represent sfe'ero (Swedish), despite -sfe- already being assigned to sefta. In another part of this proposal, existing cultural rafsi will also be reassigned to also use -goi-, so as to be more culturally neutral.

Spheniscine made some suggested reassignmen
