Re: otoke tokpon tenlil

jan Silupu o, pona! (jansílupuo, pon!) I did not even think of multiple pi s, but yes, the idea remains that the gap/stress should still accommodate for pi.

jan Kipo o, pona! mi kepeken ala e tenpo mute la toki mi pi toki pona li ike. jan Kipo, thanks! If I don't use the *many times*, my toki pona speech is bad. I think you want to move tenpo mute to a la phrase, not a direct object phrase. "using much time" is OK English, I'm not sure about ...

Re: derivative of toki pona and Esperanto.

I would have supposed that tp, if it got affixed, would put the adjectival ones as suffixes (so pilpono, ponika) and thenominalizing ones as prefixes, following the habits for word combinations. But I don't know if that is the way things usually go in languages. That actually sounds better. I was t...
