Re: Compound Word Dictionary suggestion?

KNTRO: I'd love to see your version of this project, of course all my definitions are pending and broad in their own sense. Hi there! I have finally started my own Toki Pona dictionary. You can find it here . It's probably full of mistakes, which may be discovered by Toki Pona experts from this for...

Re: About the "Toki Pona: The Simple Way Of Life" book

But there's a lot more of crazy things in that book. You're gonna have fun for sure. :lol: Unfortunately, such a statement has nothing to do with objective and concrete criticism. Unfortunately, it is not helpful. Not offending attempts from me! Sorry if that seemed to be rude! :oops: What I tried ...

Re: About the "Toki Pona: The Simple Way Of Life" book

jan Kipo, Thank you so much for taking so much time about this book! So, in a few words, we could say this book is not recommended to learn Toki Pona, couldn't we? It's a pity there are books like this, because they may confuse people who really want to learn this language. Again, thanks for your ti...

Re: Wrong place name pronunciation

No, we try to avoid English input and arguments that veer close to English are automatically suspect. Gotcha. "Mexico" is not basically a Spanish word As I said, while it's not a contemporary Spanish word, it is an Old Spanish word for sure. Texas is the very same case. In fact, some guys...

Re: About the "Toki Pona: The Simple Way Of Life" book

Where is this book to be got and who is it by? The book is by jan Pije and jan Lope. You can read it and download it from here . I think 'monsuta' is not in the official list and 'namako¿ is only in as an alternate to 'sin'. Both are widely used quite independently. 'Monsuta' means "feat"...

About the "Toki Pona: The Simple Way Of Life" book

Hello all, Has anyone read a book titled Toki Pona: The Simple Way Of Life ? It's somehow based on the Toki Pona: The Language Of Good book, but there's a lot of strange things that don't appear in the official book. For instance, a couple of words, like these ones: monsuta = monster namako = spice ...

Re: Wrong place name pronunciation

About your footpiece, probably 'sina toki kepeken toki Epanja' "You speak Spanish", not "You are the Spanish language" as you wrote. Thanks a lot for this headsup! I'll fix it now. x is a velar fricative,which offers the choice of a velar sound, k, or a frictive s. Sonja chose s...

Wrong place name pronunciation

Hi all again, I have found a very few weird things in Toki Pona so far. One of these unlogical things is related to a specific place name pronunciation. In page 112 of The Official Toki Pona Book it says: These suggestions are generally based on how the words are pronounced in the local language. An...
