A Vague PA

[10:22] <vensa> ma jdima lonu curmi doi tomoj
[10:22] <tomoj> is there a vague PA
[10:22] <selckiku> i don't mind "malgli", that's a fine way to say it, it just makes me wonder
[10:23] <vensa> selckiku: the bomb is about to go off :)
[10:23] <vensa> tomoj: ji'i
[10:23] <selckiku> huh, a vague pa, that's a cool idea, there isn't is there??
[10:23] <vensa> ji'i
[10:23] <tomoj> hmm
[10:23] <tomoj> the thing is, I don't even know the number
[10:23] <tomoj> nor whether it's typical
[10:23] <vensa> you can use {za'u}
[10:23] <tomoj> I just know it's in the hundreds
[10:23] <vensa> or {su'o}
[10:23] <selckiku> "ji'i" makes any PA a little vaguer, you can't use it on its own can you?
[10:24] <vensa> so {za'u panono}
[10:24] <tomoj> so I was thinking "XX no no"
[10:24] <vensa> selckiku: y not?
[10:24] <selckiku> i dunno, i'd just never seen it
[10:24] <tomoj> well..
[10:24] <selckiku> what selma'o is zo ji'i anyway
[10:24] <selckiku> zo ji'i cmavo ma
[10:24] <tomoj> 10000 is {za'u pa no no}, isn't it?
[10:24] <tomoj> valsi: ji'i
[10:24] <valsi> ji'i = digit/number: approximately (default the typical value in this context) (number).
[10:24] <vensa> tomoj: you can try {xo paunai no no}
[10:24] <tomoj> it's PA
[10:25] <selckiku> ok then, i guess {li ji'i} is a pretty vague number then
[10:26] <vensa> selckiku: is {za'u panono} = "more than one hunderd" or "10000"?
[10:26] <vensa> valsi za'u
[10:26] <valsi> za'u = digit/number: greater than.
[10:26] <selckiku> 10000 is more than 100, sure
[10:27] <vensa> yeah but what is the meaning of the lojban?
[10:27] <vensa> oh wait
[10:27] <vensa> nm.
[10:27] <vensa> tomoj wasnt arguing with me
[10:27] == bortzmeyer [~bortzmeye@batilda.nic.fr] has quit [Ping timeout: 252 seconds]
[10:27] <vensa> I was including "10000" as a referent of {za'u panono}
[10:27] <selckiku> it's a somewhat unusual meaning of za'upanono but it depends on the context
[10:28] <tomoj> I want X00 where X is a single digit 1-9
[10:28] <vensa> doi tomoj no'i xu do kakne lonu se pendo lo mlatu poi bartu
[10:28] <vensa> tomoj: then you need a regex :P
[10:28]  * ctino is going to try connecting with a real IRC client and will return soon
[10:29] <vensa> yay! citno
[10:29] <vensa> *Ctino
[10:29] == ctino [1806f0d2@gateway/web/freenode/ip.] has quit []
[10:29] <tomoj> hmm, is there enough cmavo space open to translate regex into lojban? :)
[10:29] <vensa> hah
[10:29] <vensa> valsi bo'o
[10:29] <valsi> boxfo = x1 is a sheet/foil/blanket [2-dimensional shape/form flexible in 3 dimensions] of material x2.
[10:29] <vensa> valsi no'o
[10:29] <valsi> no'o = digit/number: typical/average value.
[10:29] <selckiku> the cmavo space is rather busy, really
[10:29] == donri [~dag@unaffiliated/dagodenhall] has joined #lojban
[10:29] == gunkamanti [~sarefo@] has joined #lojban
[10:29] <vensa> how about {no'o no no}?
[10:30] <vensa> if anything, it sounds hillarious
