What does the relative clause in Lojban correpond to in predicate logic? I found this article
Not sure if it relates to Lojban.

Relative clauses and logical clauses aren't related, really.

Relative clauses in natural languages, and in Lojban, act like extended adjectives: they narrow down the possible choices for modified nouns/sumti (except for noi/ne/no'u, which provide incidental information about nouns). In predicate logic, this is done by putting the nouns/sumti and relative clause into the first part of an implication.
