Re: How to express the ideas of the extinct words in toki pona?

toki! mi sin tawa toki pona ...but in answer to your question, surely it would depend on the context? So, assuming I'm getting the hang of the lingo... For 'square' in the pure geometric sense I think I would use 'sitelen (pi) linja (sama) tu tu'. I also considered 'kulupu (pi) linja (sama) tu tu', ...

jan Kipo o, toki! ona li pona tawa mi e ni: sina toki tawa mi. It has occurred to me that 'lon ala' might be better for imaginary numbers - except that then you have ambiguity between 'lon (ala ...)' and '(lon ala) ... '. Perhaps 'en (nanpa) lon ala pi ...' ? As I said, I'm new to toki pona, so the ...

Re: Extremely large numbers.

And now it occurs to me that 'suli' might be a better thousand tag than 'kulupu'.

jan Kipo o, toki! Thanks for the feedback. I'm loathe to hijack jan Kaja's thread, but since you've gone to the effort, let's see if we can get this straight. I'm sure I have got the construction wrong in places, so much so perhaps that I think you have misunderstood what I was trying to say, which ...

Re: mani anpa li pona

toki! My instinct would be to use 'mani supa' - base money. 'mani noka' makes some sense to me too, but it reads to me more like 'at the foot/base of' than 'that upon which [something] is set or based'. I agree that 'mani anpa' doesn't seem to fit. One of the meanings listed in jan Pije's dictionary...

Re: A question to Buddhists

I think I would riff off 'ijo ala'. 'o kama jo e ijo ala li lon e [insa pi] lawa sina' Come to have no-thing at [inside of] your mind (imperative):- Empty your mind! (I think - I'm still learning.) I wonder also whether 'poki' has a role to play here. 'o kama e ni: lawa sina li lon e poki pi ijo ala...
