Well, the intersection is strictly {le te kruca}
and that seems to be about the right length. On
the other hand, it does seem strange to use cmavo
space for all this set notation (Cartesian
products are even rarer). I suppose the idea is
that mathematics — when someone gets around to
doing it in Lojban — will expect words to match
the notation. I am not sure why, since all
anatural languages seem to manage with it (this
goes for all of MEX as well).

Well, the intersection is strictly {le te kruca}

and that seems to be about the right length. On

the other hand, it does seem strange to use cmavo

space for all this set notation (Cartesian

products are even rarer). I suppose the idea is

that mathematics — when someone gets around to

doing it in Lojban — will expect words to match

the notation. I am not sure why, since all

anatural languages seem to manage with it (this

goes for all of MEX as well).
