Much of the expressive power of Loglan lies in the little words. A basic sentence in Loglan just defines a relationship between actors and objects but says nothing about the whys, whens or wheres. For example, mi vizka tu defines a relationship between me and you of the type seeing; "I see you" but says nothing about where or when or why. We can use the little words to add those additional informations.

Little words come in different types:

Logical Operators and Connections - joining things together

Time and Space -the wheres and whens

Modifiers - the whys

Numbers and Letters

He, she and it
