[lojban-beginners] Re: A problem with cu

la iens cusku di'e

Let's see whether I understand it.

{le cilre cu xamgu} - learning is good

"The learner is good."

{lo'e nu cilre cu xamgu} - learning is good.

{le cilre xamgu} - (a tanru I cannot translate)

"The learner good". Just a bit odd. But:

{le xunre cukta} - the red book.

{lenu mi cilre cu xamgu} - the event of my learning is good


{lenu mi cilre xamgu} - the event of my doing (tanru)

The event of my beig a learner good. Similar to "my being
a good learner".

{lenu mi cilre zo'e cu xamgu} - the event of my learning something
   is good

Yes. {zo'e} is not really necessary.

In the last sentence I need {cu} because {lenu zo'e (selbri)
zo'e ...} is always another selbri. But this selbri doesn't have
x1, x2, ... like gismus. (?)

It has the same arguments as the last component. {broda brode}
has the place structure of brode.

For example:

xunre cukta: x1 is a red book about subject x2 by author x3 etc.

mu'o mi'e .iens.
(Is {ki'e mu'o mi'e .iens.} something like {Thanks, ...}?)


mu'o mi'e xorkes
