Grammar/when to use li and e

a toki jan ali, I don't know how to use li and e correctly. Every time I try to write a sentenced I'm handicapped by not knowing how to use verbs properly. Sometimes it feels like I have to write li and other it feels like I don't. If a word is commonly used as a verb, do you use li, or no? (i.e. ka...

Re: Help me translate some words please

How about drugs?

Marijuana: kasi nasa
shrooms: kili nasa
alcohol: telo nasa

How about political views?

liberal: sona sin
conservative: sona sama
communist: sona kulupu
capitalist: sona mani
anarchist: sona lawa ala
feminist: sona meli

just a couple thoughts.

Re: Grammar/when to use li and e

You are a life saver. Thank you!

So the sentence "I played the saxophone" would be "mi kalama e sasopo"

and the sentence "we played saxophone" would be "mi mute li kalama e sasopo"

that makes so much more sense to me :D

Re: Grammar/when to use li and e

Hmm, I'm still a bit confused as to how to use 'la'. I'll take a look at your link and learn from there, but if you could give a few more examples as to how to use 'la' I might get a better grasp of it.
