Anyway, whatever is in the 4th place of fancu needs to be interpreted as a
function. If I stick "1" in there, it can only mean a function that
returns "1" for all arguments, right? After all, if I had put "sin" in the
4th place, wouldn't that mean that the function was described by "sin"?

You mean the word "sin"? zo sin? By analogy that would be a function that returns the word "sin" for every argument. But of course you don't mean the word "sin", the name of the function, you mean the sine function. In Lojban: le sinso ve fancu. (lo fancu is not a function, it is a word, a name. The place structure of fancu is really crazy.)
