Can the whole scope of "tu'e ... tu'u" be referred by "di'u"? What exactly is an "utterance" in Lojban?

>> No.473  

Yes. di'u is "what has just been said", that vague. There are no precise boundaries. Similarly di'e is "what follows", "what will be said next".

An utterance in Lojban is anything is the thing being written, spoken, or communicated in some other way.

If I commented here as "moo." and then you asked "what did you just say?", both things in quotes are utterances. You might not have noticed it, but I did not say anything- I typed it. That is a fault with English. In Lojban you would say something equivalent to "what was it that was recently uttered by you?".

Text (hand-written, typed, etc.), sounds (speech), etc. are all types of utterances.
