"jbo" is the rafsi of "lojbo", the brivla (syntactically a verb, but also used 
as an adjective - there are no adjectives or adverbs in Lojban, and brivla 
are also used for common nouns) meaning "Lojban". Examples:
jboru'u - the Lojban monetary unit, distinct from ronru'u (Euro), meryru'u 
(American dollar), etc.
jbofi'e - "Lojban fish", name (by analogy with "Babelfish") of a program for 
parsing and translating Lojban text.
