lojbab has already spoken to using broda (which wouldn't have occured to
me; thanks Bob).  Here's how you define the place structure above.  Or
one way, at least, assuming broda has been bound to "me la luman." or

zo rodzga cu bridi le si'o da .e de vu'o poi tcini zo'u karbi da de gi'e
tcitygau fi pa da ce de kei le zgana se zukte ku ce'o le tcita tcini ku
ce'o le na tcica tcini ku ce'o le zgana ciste

I've seen essentially no attempts to define lojban words in lojban,
though, so take anything anyone says about this with a grain of salt.

PS: Damn you, LALR(1).  I mean, yeesh, if we did LALR(2) we wouldn't
need those ku tags.  8P
