If you use a brivla in a special terminological sense, the place structure 
must carry over, else the word becomes polysemous, which is not allowed for 
brivla. So if a pawn is a sonci, it's a soldier in some army. Which it is; 
the white pawn is a soldier in the army consisting of all white chessmen. But 
the bishop and the knight are not elephants or horses of any species.
