How would I speak out a bulleted (or numbered) list in Lojban? I
want something like:

ni'o bridi bridi bridi

[start list?]

* [point 1] bridi bridi bridi
* [point 2] bridi

[end list?] bridi bridi bridi

ni'o bridi bridi bridi

I've wondered the same thing about tables, though that seems
moderately more complex.

I'm not really anything like sure, but just for the sake of taking a stab at an interesting construct...

bridi .i bridi .i bridi

.i pamai mi bridi
.i remai do bridi
.i cimai ma'a bridi

.i bridi .i bridi .i bridi

ni'o bridi .i bridi

(I dunno.  I was talking like alan.  If I hadn't been trying to talk like alan's text I probably would have instead used "broda...".  And incidnetally, you are in fact a predicate, xorxes. lol)

I 2nd the suggestion of "mai". Also, you might be interested in
tu'e/tu'u, which group sentences together. Can someone remind me, I
always forget, do you need ".i" or "ni'o" between tu'e/tu'u groups and
between them and the sentences around them? Is it like:

broda .i brode .i
tu'e
tu'e broda .i broda tu'u .i
tu'e broda .i brode tu'u .i
tu'e broda .i brode tu'u
tu'u
.i broda .i brode

Or can I just say:

broda .i brode
tu'e
tu'e broda .i brode tu'u
tu'e broda .i brode tu'u
tu'e broda .i brode tu'u
tu'u
broda .i brode

Anyway, like one of those I think! :D

According to jbosi'e, you need the {.i}.

OK thanks. Now can anyone explain to me a reason why that makes
sense, so I'll remember it? :) Can you have a tu'e/tu'u enclosed bit
as just part of a bridi, and if so what would that mean?

"tu'e ... tu'u" works basically like a whole bridi. ".i" is not part of a bridi.
