Re: Are there any words you've found yourself wanting?

Is there any way to make verbs that are compound words? If not, how are new verbs made in Toki Pona?

Re: A Few Observations on Minimalist Languages

Nearly all "minimalist" languages are oligosynthetic languages. The best known oligosynthetic languages are: Ygyde, Kali-sise, Sona, and aUI. Ygyde is the most mature of these languages. Its dictionary (posted at: http://www.ygyde.neostrada.pl/ygyded.htm) has over 4000 words. Its descripti...

Re: A Few Observations on Minimalist Languages

For some reason, I don't think of Ygydygy orWahooey as minimalist, since they have indefinitely expandable vocabularies and are not obviously restricted in either phonology or grammar. a UI. Is a straightforward philosophical language, old school. Ygyde is newer in the sense of making its atomic po...

Re: A Few Observations on Minimalist Languages

How transparent are these compounds?... I am a newbie trying to understand Toki Pona. (I am much more familiar with Ygyde and other oligosynthetic languages.) As far as I can tell, there is fundamental difference between Toki Pona and Ygyde. Every word of Toki Pona has about a dozen different meani...

Re: A Few Observations on Minimalist Languages

Ygyde seems to want to create new words for each situation, to make them as precise as possible with a minimum of context, and to assign each a restricted syntactic role. True. I will clue you in, however, that the quest for precision is always a doomed one... I agree. We will never reach precision...

Re: A Few Observations on Minimalist Languages

So you see that there is virtually nothing similar between tp and Ygyde, so no grounds for evaluative comparisons. Both languages rely heavily on compound words/phrazes and they struggle with ambiguity. It may seem that bigger morpheme set would be desirable, but the additional morphemes would not ...
