Lojban[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Cmavo[edit]

cu

  1. Indicates that the next word or phrase functions as a selbri.

Usage notes[edit]

  • cu can be necessary because any two gismu or lujvo (as well as the cmavo mo), when placed directly in sequence, form a tanru, a phrase with a single meaning. Thus, cu may be necessary to divide the selbri from certain preceding words. When the word immediately preceding the selbri cannot be part of a tanru, such as a pro-sumti or a cmevla, cu can be omitted. For instance, the statement, ".i lo prenu cu melbi" requires the use of cu, but ".i do melbi", ".i la .meilis. melbi", and ".i melbi" do not. cu can likewise be omitted when there is no word preceding the selbri; i.e., the selbri is the first word of the utterance. However, the inclusion of cu before a selbri is never incorrect, even when unnecessary.
  • The use of cu allows for elision of many types of grammatical terminators, specifically those that terminate elements that cannot contain a selbri. For instance, using cu makes it unnecessary to use ku, which marks the end of a sumti, because a sumti must always end where the selbri begins.
