sivni - 'private'


sivni
siv

'private'

x1 is private/personal/privy/[secret/confidential/confined] to x2; x1 is not-public/hidden



* also: x1 is secret (one sense)
* x2 is in the know/in touch with/privy to x1 (= selsivni for reordered places)
* exclusion can be expressed by na'e(bo) in x2: excluded/in the dark (= nalselsivni)

cf. gubni, mipri

{sivni} is also this weeks topic, because most of the recent posts are connected through recent events in my life.

neat, sivni would have been very useful for translating the congress motto of the 25c3.
