1) How does one use the truth-value indicator (both in question form and statement)?

2) What is the difference between this and xu?

3) How does one say "half-truth"? What would its truth-value be?

What is a "half-truth"?

>> No.591  


A "half-truth" is a statement that is technically true but deceiving, because it omits some relvant information.

1) If you mean je'u/je'unai/je'upei, you use them like all indicators. You can put them in front of the proposition whose truth/falsity you want to indicate, or you can put them immediately after the element you want to focus on.

2) xu and je'upei are very similar in meaning, so the latter is not really used much. Normally a xu question will be answered with "go'i" or "na go'i", while a je'upei question would probably be answered with je'u or je'unai.

3) I'd say "xadba jetnu". The truth-value should be the same as for a true statement, because technically a half-truth is a truth. You could however use na'i in response to a half-truth to indicate that there is something fishy going on.

Maybe [zo (mal)ticyjetnu] for "half-truth"?
