Chapter 7: Brevity Is The Soul Of Language: Pro-sumti And Pro-bridi
12. Bound variable pro-sumti and pro-bridi: the da-series and the bu'a-series
The following cmavo are discussed in this section:
da KOhA da-series something-1 de KOhA da-series something-2 di KOhA da-series something-3 bu'a GOhA bu'a-series some-predicate-1 bu'e GOhA bu'a-series some-predicate-2 bu'i GOhA bu'a-series some-predicate-3
Bound variables belong to the predicate-logic part of Lojban, and are listed here for completeness only. Their semantics is explained in Chapter 16. It is worth mentioning that the Lojban translation of ✥1.2 is:
✥12.1 la djan. cu lafti da poi grana ku'o gi'e desygau da John raised something-1 which is-a-stick and shake-did something-1 John picked up a stick and shook it.
