unary mekso operator: natural exponentiation operator exp, where exp(a) = ea \forall a.
Approximately equivalent to "se te'a te'o" possibly with ma'o included somewhere. This is mostly useful for abbreviation and for being careful in distinguishing functions from numbers (since ex is a number and not a function; this word is e\# using Wolfram notation). For example: Let D be the differentiation operator with respect to the first variable of its argument. Then D(ex)=0 at best, strictly speaking, because x must be just a number and so the differentiand is a constant (in fact and at worst, it may not even be a function, in which case the derivative is not even defined); we accept this notation to mean something else (which will be shown momentarily) because few other notations are convenient. However, what we really mean, and what this word facilitates, is: D(exp)=exp; this is true because the differentiand is a differentiable (and special) function. This word is related to te'a in a fashion analgpus to the ordered relation between fa'i (resp. va'a) and 1/n, "n/" => n/1, or "/" alone => golden ratio.">fi'u (resp. vu'u). The domain and codomain sets are purposefully vague.
