cmene (plural cmene)
- (Lojban grammar) A proper name, or proper noun, respelled according to Lojban rules; reckoned as a part of speech separate from brivla (content words) and cmavo (function words).
- Cmene are always written with a period at the end, and if they start with a vowel then also with a period at the beginning.
- 1997, John W. Cowan, The Complete Lojban Language ISBN 0966028309 
- These minor restrictions are due to the fact that all Lojban cmene embedded in a speech stream will be preceded by one of these words or by a pause. With one of these words embedded, the cmene might break up into valid Lojban words followed by a shorter cmene.

- I removed from the frequency list all cmene and unknown lujvo and cmavo.
- 2005, Xah Lee, Learn Lojban Fast 
- cmene always end with a consonant followed by a mandatory pause (a period). No other Lojban word ends with a consonant.
