x_{1} (number) is the infimum of set x_{2} under (partial) ordering x_{3}

x2 must be a set; although it is standard (and lazy) mathematical practice to speak of "the infimum of a function" (including sequences) in some domain or to constrain the infimum with respect to certain variables in some way, all of these features can and ought to be constraints defining the set of which the infimum is taken; in Lojban, no leeway is given toward such sloppiness.

_{1}(li) is an extremal bound (supremum/infimum/possibly-unattained extremum (loose sense in English)/asymptote (one sense)/best possible bound (one sense)) on set x_{2}(set) in direction x_{3}(li) in ordered structure x_{4}; x_{1}bounds x_{2}tightly/maximally-strongly from the x_{3}side in x_{4}; x_{2}is bounded from the x_{3}side by x_{1}and any other bound on that side is worse than is x_{1}.
