When one makes a lujvo of certain characteristics, how does one know what it means? For example [le jbodripre blabli]. Is it as typed before or [le jbodri preblabli]?

I realize that the lujvo mean nothing useful, and one can infer their intended meaning based off of this principle; but really such ambiguity should not arise at all and a computer would not know how to interpret it.

I suppose the stressing gives it away, but still, I would rather rely on something more... I do not know... "efficient". Plyus, can anybody really stress properly in verbal Lojban?

Am I missing something?

I am working on it. I can definately see an improvement from what I used to do.

I think you might have solved your problem for yourself. .ui

Stress is most definitely required to parse Lojban. I dunno if that's especially efficient, but it was decided long before I got here, so I try not to worry about it too much. :) If someone invents a logical language that parses way more elegantly (which I do intuit to be possibly possible), I am open to being converted! Until then, yes, stress is required in Lojban.

Since tone is unused in spoken Lojban, one way that I personally have thought of & experimented with to make stressed syllables more distinctive is to also give them a higher tone. I do find most spoken Lojban perfectly comprehensible already, but I also think there's a lot we could do to develop a style of speaking that's maximally clear.
