Re: toki pona text language?

I've actually made a shortening of all words that are five letters or more, if you're interested http://janewiku.blogspot.com/2013/05/nimi-lili.html

Does gender give different meaning?

I figured: jan lili is a child, but, somehow, meli lili sounds like 'young woman', and jan lili meli would then be a 'little girl'. Just wandering is my reasoning right Also, jan sama is a brother/sister but if you want to specify the gender, would you say (eg for sister) meli sama or jan sama meli?...

Re: Using la in poetic structures

That was the whole point of starting this theme. It seemed that even though Toki Pona is on the one hand very easy and straight forward, that the word la opened a lot of space for all kinds of beautiful sentence structures.

Re: Using la in poetic structures

Hmm... another thing came into my mind yesterday. Can the sentence 'I don't know where it is' be translated both as 'mi sona ala e ni: ni li lon seme' and 'ni li lon seme la mi sona ala' ?

Using la in poetic structures

For example, it is grammatically correct to say 'mi pona e tomo tawa, kepeken ijo mute' (comma is there just to avoid confusion in meaning of tawa here)
What I wanted to ask is, is it correct to say then 'kepeken ijo mute la mi pona e tomo tawa' ?
