Unspecified Cmavo Instead of Medium

[18:40] <vensa> btw: why is {ve'a}="small space" and {ve'i}="TINY space"? why not "medium" and "small"... this isn't mcdonalds! :P
[18:40] <Twey> WHAT HAPPEN !!
[18:40] <ksion> vensa: I'd say the opposite { mi jai se jai se bandu do fai(xipa) lonu do vi zvati kei faixire lonu catra lo cribe}
[18:40] <vensa> how do I SHOT WEB
[18:40] <selpa`i> vensa: u'isai
[18:40] <ksion> valsi ve'u
[18:40] <valsi> ve'u = location tense interval: a large region of space.
[18:41] <ksion> valsi ve'a
[18:41] <valsi> ve'a = location tense interval: a small/medium region of space.
[18:41] <kribacr> .i da punji le jbama
[18:41] <ksion> See, it's small/medium.
[18:41] <vensa> ksion: but xalbo just contradicted you. no?
[18:41] <ksion> vensa: yes.
[18:41] <@xalbo> .i da fi'o se xlali ma'a gasnu lo jbama
[18:41] <vensa> valsi ve'i
[18:41] <valsi> ve'i = location tense interval: a tiny region of space.
[18:42] <vensa> I still dont like the "tiny"
[18:42] <kribacr> Yours is way better. :P
[18:42] <kribacr> coi cmalu
[18:42] <kribacr> .yy. pinji la'a
[18:43] <@xalbo> yeah, need to fix the verbiage. All of those trios should be small/unmarked/large.
[18:43] <vensa> ve'i pinji bu'u la kribacr
[18:43] <kribacr> .ui
[18:43] <vensa> xalbo: iesai, will {za} and {ze'a} also be unmakred?
[18:44] <ksion> mi na da'i se jai cfipu la kribacr fai lonu spuda lu do mo li'u lu se pinji li'u kei u'i
[18:44] <@xalbo> Yes.
[18:45] <@xalbo> So only medium in that we're not saying it's large or small
[18:45] <vensa> .ie
[18:45] <vensa> si i'e
[18:46] <ksion> It's like that now, too.
[18:46] <UukGoblin> toljifyje'u
[18:47] <vensa> ksion. it isnt clear from the def
[18:47] <vensa> valsi za
[18:47] <valsi> za = time tense distance: medium distance in time.
[18:47] <ksion> u'isai Since when defs are clear? :)
[18:47] <vensa> doesnt say "unspecifiedD"
[18:47] <vensa> yeah... :(
[18:48] <vensa> xalbo: I cant find ZI or ZEhA in the BPFK sections, except a reference in here: http://www.lojban.org/tiki/tiki-index.php?page=BPFK+Section%3A+Tense
[18:48] <vensa> in {puza} it says "medium time" and not "unspecified" :(
[18:49] <@xalbo> Time distance. It indicates that the event is separated in time from the speaker or reference point. When tagging a sumti, the sumti specifies the time separation distance.
[18:49] <@xalbo> http://www.lojban.org/tiki/tiki-index.php?page=BPFK+Section:+Distance
[18:50] <vensa> that doesnt say "unspecified" either :(
[18:51] <vensa> it's really sad that the defs arent clear enough. I even made a special cmavo that explicitly specifies *unspecified* becuz I didnt understand the existing cmavo that way
[18:51] <vensa> valsi za'ai
[18:51] <valsi> za'ai = time tense distance: an unspecified distance in time
[18:51] <vensa> valsi ze'ai
[18:51] <valsi> ze'ai = time tense interval: an unspecified amount of time
[18:51] == stat_ [stat@2402:f000:5:c901:c81f:1d7:a978:805f] has joined #lojban
[18:52] <@xalbo> it doesn't have to say unspecified; it just doesn't specify.
[18:52] <vensa> it *specifies* MEDIUM
[18:53] <@xalbo> The byfy page doesn't.
[18:53] <@xalbo> "Proposed definition definition differs from CLL and ma'oste in that "medium" has been removed, so that a basic form is available when the size of the interval is not particularly significant."
[18:53] <vensa> hehe
[18:53] <vensa> yeah I just caught sight of that note :)
[18:54] <vensa> ok
[18:54] <vensa> I see this section isnt even red... :(
[18:55] <vensa> so it's far from being accepted?
[18:57] <@xalbo> I guess so. Looks pretty good, though.
[18:59] <vensa> is the section complete? y isnt it up for votes?
[18:59] <@xalbo> I don't know.
