Word for "Complicated"

While looking through the book of toki pona I noticed that pona means simple, but there is no word for complex. I wouldn't put it on ike because something being complex is not necessarilly bad always. So I want to invent a word. monimu - from the Finnish monimutkainen. If there is a better word for ...

Re: Word for "Complicated"

Yes, but something being simple is not good always either. tp just joins together two semantic fields we hold more or less separate. But in those joined fields ‘pona' occupies the “simple" and “good" areas and ‘ike’ the “bad" and “complex”. If you want to be more careful, you would, ...

Re: Word for "Complicated"

Sorry for not reading full to the end. I guess I just overreacted...

I have a new idea though - complex could also mean mechanical, as we have no way to talk about some mechanical things other than saying its useful or its moving.

Word Idea For Triangle - Sanku

Sanku comes from the georgian სამკუთხედი (samk'utkhedi). The reason it is based of georgian is because "ku" sounds like how slavic languages refer to shapes, and also sounds very similar to the major east asian languages refer to triangles. A possible sitelen pona symbol would be 2 triangl...

Re: Word Idea For Triangle - Sanku

Well we already have sike and leko, I'm not sure what other uses sanku could have though, but I still think it would fit in good. After all if we go off your idea then we don't need leko or sike because you could describe any shape with simpler terms.

Re: Word Idea For Triangle - Sanku

I honestly think we need to stop with trying to keep it at 120. "pu" is such an uneeded word, "esun" (in my opinion) could do with some revamping, and the kulupu already uses words that lipu pi toki pona (pu) says don't really count as words. Of course keeping it simple is great ...

Re: Word Idea For Triangle - Sanku

At this point I think I should give up on toki pona and just stop procrastinating at making my own relatively simplistic language.
