Re: Pale (minimalistic language without pronouns)

Oh well. I love the idea of no pronouns.

Re: soweli mi en sina

Brainstorming off your suggestions...

lawa pi soweli mi li kama lon sewi pi noka mi
la ona li wile kama jo e mi tan sina.

Another possibility...

mi pilin e lawa pi soweli mi lon sewi pi noka mi
la ona li wile kama jo e mi tan sina.

I would submit one of your versions but I wouldn't feel right.

how would you say this?

"He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man."

i would say:

jan soweli li pilin ala e ike pilin jan.

Re: Nest

Thanks! I thought about 'tomo soweli' or 'tomo waso' but it just doesn't make as much sense in context that way. Similarly, 'ever' might have been possible (not sure how), but probably not necessary, and maybe even implied in this case. I agree that "nest" is fuzzier than "tomo'... :(...
