Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

I like your proposal. I only think, that in real speach it would naturally contract to luala, luwan, lutu for example 1937 = "wan lupo tu lutu" actually much and nicer than "one thousand nine hundred thirty seven"

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

About base 20 and 60 you are right - the problem remains.
About 5 - it would have to be either luka (in spite of the bequinary origin of the proposed system) or lukala. I would interpret luka ala as 50

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

OK - I only meant that with biquinary we can just leave the decimal cifers as they are, and they have the accepted value. If I read 100 as wan ala ala and use hexadecimal - I won't be quite sure if I meant 100 or 256. As you see in my example, I would propose a slightly modified biquinary system. Th...

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

I personally am a fan of duodecimal numbers, which have the advantages of hex but deal well with thirds also, a practical advantage. Both of these (and vingesimal, tregesimal and sexagesimal, too) contain the decimal and so solve naming problem. I don't understand what you mean by "both of the...

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

It is true that a decimal (or hexadecimal, octal or whatever) is better for large numbers, and for telephone numbers, SSNs, PINs, addresses we would need decimal numbers anyway. I shall try to find in facebook the proposals. I proposed the trinary system as a solution for things like "I am 77 y...

Re: Teaching small children

If it was a group of children that already know the latin letters (I live in Israel, they learn first the Hebrew letters) - I would rather teach Esperanto. The question is about small children. I thought that maybe they can learn easily the few words, and that maybe they can also adapt easily to the...

Teaching small children

Did anyone try teaching small children (like 3-4 year old)? I mean in a group, not my own children.
If so - what were the results?
If not - is it worth trying?
