Is "li ala li" grammatically correct?

It looks like the way of asking questions is similar to one way you can in Chinese.
是不是
可不可以

So is li ala li something you could say in toki pona?

Re: Ideas for Phonology. Three vowel system.

Much of this was inspired by Inuktitut, but it sounds very different without uvulars. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAwyQJ33jyo I made some improvements: /p/ = [p] ≠ [pʰ] /t/ = [t] ≠ [tʰ] /k/ = [k] ≠ [kʰ] /j/ = [j] /n/ = [n], [ŋ] /s/ = [s], [s̠] /w/ = [v] /l/ = [l̥] /m/ = [m] /u/, /o/ = [ʊ], [u], ...

Re: Left and Right

In yin and yang, Yin means right, shade, inside, moon, female. Yang means left, brightness, outside, sun, male. Sun and moon are very common representations for yin and yang. So how about using poka mun for right and poka suno for left? Even though this is from a specific culture, what would be univ...

言好!Toki pona written with Han characters.

The toki pona classic word list: http://tokipona.net/tp/classicwordlist.aspx included a character/Japanese hiragana for each word. I noticed that there are a couple of mistakes, as well as a few characters which I think would have made more sense. I mostly tried to stick with more historical and gen...

Addition: mute, mute nanpa e xyz
Multiplication: sin, sin nanpa e xyz tenpo
Subtraction: lili, lili nanpa e xyz
Division: kipisi nanpa e xyz tenpo, or for fractions abc sewi xzy.

So basically, one way to read the number is to just read out the digits. For 0 through 9, I used: 0 ala 1 wan 2 tu 3 tu wan 4 tu tu 5 luka 6 luka wan 7 luka tu 8 luka tu wan 9 luka tu tu This means that 11 would be wan wan, and 19 would be wan luka tu tu. This becomes a problem a few times once you ...

Ideas for Phonology. Three vowel system.

Here is a bit of my current ideas for toki pona pronunciation. /p/ = [p] ≠ [pʰ] /t/ = [t] ≠ [tʰ] /k/ = [k] ≠ [kʰ] /j/ = [j] /n/ = [n], [ŋ] /s/ = [s], [ʃ] /w/ = [v], [w]? /l/ = [l], [ɬ]? /m/ = [m] /u/, /o/ = [ʊ], [u], [o] /i/ = [i], [ɪ], [e] /e/, /a/ = [a], [æ], [ɛ] Toki pona could have something lik...
