This is a document explaining some intermediate-level Lojban to people who finished reading la karda. I'll try to explain the topics you really need to understand to bridge the gap between la karda and everyday conversations or prose!
More on tanru
You know about tanru: they are "compounds" of selbri formed simply by juxtaposing them. Let me jog your memory with some examples:
- .i vi lenku tcima = It's cold-kind-of-weather here.
- .i mi snuti darxi lo pendo ku = I accident-kind-of-hit my friend.
- .i lo cukta pixra ku melbi = The book-kind-of-picture is pretty.
- .i lo blanu karce ku spofu = The blue-kind-of-car is broken down.
