Mixing Things Together[edit]

ze[edit]

Sometimes a composition forms something. For example, a black and white cat composed of both black fir and white fir. In loglan, if we say a black and white cat (le nigro ce blabi katmu) we mean the cat is both black and white at the same time, which not only forms and example of an impossibility but also we do not mean that. Loglan, however, does provide a word to mix things together.

Examples[edit]

  • le nigro ze blabi katmu - black and white cat
  • le redro ze vegri hasfa - The red and green house
