EtymologyEdit

From Lojban.

PronunciationEdit

  • (Lojban-like) IPA(key): /ˈʃme.ne/

NounEdit

cmene (plural cmene)

  1. (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 [1]:
      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.
    • a. 2001, Chris Double, [2] [3]:
      I removed from the frequency list all cmene and unknown lujvo and cmavo.
    • 2005, Xah Lee, Learn Lojban Fast [4]
      cmene always end with a consonant followed by a mandatory pause (a period). No other Lojban word ends with a consonant.
