[lojban-beginners] Re: A problem with cu

Both are right.

OK, but why do you use {cu} in the following sentence:

{lenu mi cilre fi la lojban. cu xamgu mi}

{xamgu} is a selbri, so you can use {cu}, but is

{lenu mi cilre fi la lojban. xamgu mi}

correct? {la lojban.} is a cmeme - there is no need for a {cu}?

It is correct but not what you want. {nu mi cilre fi la lojban}
is itself a selbri, which can form a tanru with {xamgu},
so you have {le (nu mi cilre fi la lojban) (xamgu)}.

Another {cu}-problem:

{la daucac. tcika lenu mi klama}

is OK. If you want to use {se} it becomes something like

{lenu mi klama cu se tcika la daucac.}

Why is {se} not enough to separate {klama} and {tcika}?

Because you can have tanru of the form {broda se brode}.
{klama se tcika} is a tanru.
