Doesn't the definition of zo papri specifically mean a physical object?

I think so. What terms should be used for (a) a non-physical collection of information and (b) a subunit of such a collection? 22:36, 9 Aug 2004 (UTC)

A non-physical (or non-paper) collection of information cukta, as long as it has an author and an audience and is preserved in some medium. I see nothing wrong with calling a web page {papri}, since we have no other word for a page that isn't a sheet of some material. lo cukta ka'e se zbasu fi lo pelji gi'enai se papri; it could be written on a single long sheet and rolled up into a scroll. -Pier 13:59, 10 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Unsolicited adviceEdit

Just a thought: one of the best ways to get a large number of usable articles right away is to input the events that happened throughout history, year by year. Usually the url is just a simple 1560 (for the year 1560), and a negative for BC though some do it differently. It's easy enough to make up a standard format saying Events Births Deaths

and a few other things, along with links at the top to the next and preceding years, plus categories for the decade and century. Assuming that a few of the people here are still learning the language it would make for good practice as the sentences need only be as simple as "King Ronald the Third invades Polonia", Deaths - King Geulloja of Baekjae in Korea, that sort of thing.

Correct Lojbanization of "Wikipedia"Edit

In my opinion, {uikiPEdi,as} is a slightky better lojbanization of "Wikipedia". What do you think?

When Lojbanizing the name of a person or a place, I suggest not using the English pronunciation unless there is a good reason for it. In particular, if you don't know how the original name is pronounced in its original language, it is much safer to leave the vowels a, e, i, o, u as they are spelt and never change them to ei, i, ai, ou, iu.

I mostly agree. I think the spelling of a name is of more fundamental importance than the pronunciation, so the spelling is what should stay in tact. However, sometimes I think some modification does have to be made. For example, I recently lojbanized "Rickman" to be "rikmen." I couldn't leave the 'c' in because "rickman." is too hard to pronounce in lojban and the lojban 'c' sounds very different from the english 'c'. I also had the names "Quinn" and "Wade" to deal with; those had to be changed because 'q' and 'w' don't exist in lojban, and also lojban doesn't allow double letters and it might sound too awkward to have an 'e' on the end which was silent in english which would have to have a consonant added to it anyway. Kybunon 18:08, 21 April 2006 (UTC)
I wasn't suggesting not basing the name on pronunciation. All I said is not to base it on *English* pronunciation when the name is not particularly associated with the English language.

Another issue with names: Please don't use commas and capital letters for names other than your own! Stress and syllabification patterns are free in cmevla, they don't change the name. Commas and capitalization can only show your preferred pronunciation, but any other variant is permitted for the same name, so there is no reason to uglyfy the Lojban spelling for everyone just to show the pronunciation of a cmevla that a particular person likes best.

I think sometimes commas are necessary. For example, in the name "Diana", "di,anas." is necessary instead of "dianas." because the "ia" together make different sounds than "i" and "a" individually. Kybunon 21:41, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
In Lojban, {dianas}, {di,anas}, {DI,anas}, {dian,AS}, etc. are all one and the same name. All that the commas and capitals show is the preferred pronunciation of a given speaker.
The Reference Grammar (chapter 4, verse 8) says, "[names] are penultimately stressed, unless unusual stress is marked with capitalization" and "[names] may be stressed on any syllable; if this syllable is not the penultimate one, it must be capitalized when writing." This implies that {DI,anas} is not a valid reading of {dianas}. However, the Reference Grammar also says, "if possible and acceptable, shift the stress to the penultimate (next-to-the-last) syllable", i.e. we should still avoid capital letters in most cases for stylistic reasons.— 16:50, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Is it allowed to have additional full stops in the middle of the name in Lojban? In the Finnish language combinations "la" and "lai" are common in names and some difficulties make that the double consonants and double vowels are pronounced much longer than usually in other languages. To make an example of a Finnish newspaper "Kalajokilaakso", the usual way to lojbanize it would be "kaleiokileksos." which makes it difficult for Finnish people to recognize. I would prefer form "kal.aiokil.a'aksos." but is it possible to split name in Lojban like this? Another example, "Matti" (Nykänen is well known). The double consonant is pronounced really long, almost having a pause in it and "mat.tis." would be nearer the real pronounciation than "matis." --Gallinago 19:13, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

to zoi gy It's allowed, but I suggest posing this question at the lojban beginners' mailing list. My feeling is that these questions will have to be answered by consensus of the Finnish and Estonian Lojbanists.

English Ubuntu ArticleEdit

Some IP added an article on ubuntu, a linux dist., but it's in english, not lojban. - 06:06, 24 la vomast. 2008 (UTC)

It should say "no'u le zifre vricyjuncku", not "po'u le zifre vricyjuncku" (the incidental, not restrictive, relative clause word).

That's right, but I don't know how to change it--.i mu'o mi'e .omologos. 04:46, 18 la xamast. 2009 (UTC)
Also, isn't it pronounced "uikipidias"? While we're at it, isn't "facycku" (fact book) a better translation of "encyclopedia" than "vricyjuncku" (miscellaneous-knower book)? Among other things, "facycku" nicely parallels "vlacku" (word book: dictionary). There's also the question of whether there should be a relative clause at all. To make a fully grammatical sumti, we'd have to put "la" in front of "UikipidiaS". Wouldn't it be better to have "UikipidiaS: le zifre facycku" instead of "la UikipidiaS: no'u lo zifre facycku"? Hussell 14:11, 22 la xamast. 2009 (UTC)

Day of the month articles brokenEdit

All of the day of the month articles (example: 10 la remast) are broken -- they say things like "10 la remast. cu 10moi djedi" which of course means that 10 Februaries are 10th days (argh). Since there are so many articles, it seems like it would make sense to have some sort of bot fix them (the changes could be done with a few regexps perhaps). I'd recommend something like "lo 10moi djedi pe la .remast." for the titles.

See detri and Talk:detri (which, in retrospect, should have gone to Wikipedia:detri_manri). I've changed 1 la pamast through 5 la pamast. If the proposed date formats are acceptable, I'd be happy to change the rest of the pages. Let me know what you think (preferably on Talk:detri or Wikipedia_talk:detri_manri).
That's wonderful! Feel free to change them whenever you want. Thank you very much!

Small requestEdit

Hello! I am a Polish wikipedian and I would like to ask you for your help - writing a new article about former Polish President who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1983 – Lech Wałęsa. I have looked for his biography in your Wikipedia but without success. Polish Wikipedians will be grateful for your help. Thank you so much in advance!

Other languages / drata banju list?Edit


What's with the Languages (drata banju) sidebar on the main page? My lojban is still pretty limited so I don't know if I'm just not understanding, but instead of pointing to the main page of the other language wikis, it's pointing to the "Calculation" page. I also notice the opposite is occurring -- the Calculation pages on the other language wikis are pointing to this wiki's main page. I don't mind doing some fixing, I just wanted to make sure it is correct to change it and that I'm not completely missing something here? - Cataria 08:01, 30 decmbero 2010 (UTC)

So I took a look, and it seems that the problem is that there is a list of languages at the bottom of the source for the main page that point to Calculation in a bunch of different languages -- hopefully if those disappear, maybe it will go back to the way it should be? Not 100% sure how this works.
I can take the links to this Wikipedia from the other language calculation page, no problem, but I obviously don't have permission to edit the main page. Any chance someone can take those out of there? Maybe a bot will take care of it, but I'm more worried that the opposite will happen and it will just put the links right back on the other wikis. - Cataria 08:27, 31 decmbero 2010 (UTC)
I removed the interwiki links from all the other pages. Hopefully a bot won't put them back! - Cataria 21:35, 31 decmbero 2010 (UTC)
