Do whatever you want with my translations.

lo -> some
cizra -> strange thing
vi -> here
zvati -> exists

This is apparently the best way of saying "I don't know what this is". Lojban is formally a logical predicate language, designed to be as unambiguous as possible, so it has very elaborate means of expressing an exact logical assertion. One way of describing ignorance is to state the inability to give a factual answer to a question. So the Lojban equivalent will literally mean something like I don't know for a fact the answer to the question "what is this?" Teeth smile
mi -> I
na -> not
djuno -> know
lo -> some
du'u -> fact
ti -> this
mo -> what is?
kau -> answer to indirect question
