It is important to realize that “.uu”, and indeed all attitudinals, are meant to be used sincerely, not ironically. In English, the exclamation “Pity!” is just as likely to be ironically intended, but this usage does not extend to Lojban. Lying with attitudinals is (normally) as inappropriate to Lojban discourse as any other kind of lying: perhaps worse, because misunderstood emotions can cause even greater problems than misunderstood statements.
Have any of you studied Lojban? Can you suggest any sources that might make my own journey easier?
What do you like about the language?
What rough spots did you cross in studying it?
What advantages do you think there would be for our species if it were made the universal language, and a mandatory subject in school?

(I can’t stop singing this! It’s a beautiful and amusing song!)
I tried learning the sounds before worrying about the meaning, much like a child learns language. So I could sing this pretty well before I knew what I was saying. It’s kinda like when English speakers learn “Frère Jacques” without actually knowing what they are saying word for word.
