Not even if noda is the commonly understood value? I believe your fi'o
rebla is zo'e; it's noda.

"Your fi'o rebla" is not grammatical, if we can talk of a Jboglish grammar, so I don't know what you mean by that. If you tell me {do fi'o rebla fe'u prenu}, I will assume you think I have a tail. The same if you say {do se rebla [zo'e]}.

I never said that it took the number 1 as a value, but the converse: it
always spits out "1".

I thought that the value that a function takes is the one that it spits. The sine function takes values in the -1 to +1 range. Is that wrong?
