## The OR Operator

### a

In Loglan, we define the Or operator as true if one item it links together has a value of true. The little word a connects predicates together.

#### Examples

• mi tcatro a maifle - I am a driver or a pilot (or both)
• le tetri gu solflo a kleda - the weather is sunny or cold (or both)
• le bakso gu redro a dirlu a groda - the box is red or lost or large (or any combination)

### ca, ka, anoi and ica

The little word a forms the foundations for a set of "OR" words.

• ca - forms an OR operation with predicates as arguments
• ka - forms an OR operation as a but as a forethought connection. It works with the little word ki
• anoi - represents an if relationship and results from NOT OR
• ica - connects two sentences together with an OR operation

#### Examples

ca

• le mrenu ca fumna gu godzi - the man or woman goes
• le katmu gu fundi le cutri ca ficlu - the cat likes water or fish

ka

• le ka mrenu ki fumna gu godzi - the man or woman goes
• le katmu gu fundi le ka cutri ki ficlu - the cat likes water or fish

anoi

• mi fundi le bukcu anoi le sinma - I like the book if I like the film

ica

• mi fundi le bukcu ica le sinma - I like the book or I like the film
