Re: Planet Earth

toki, jan Kiwi o! When trying to express yourself in a new language, it's rarely a good idea to rely on another language, like in this case "Elutu" for "Earth", because you assume that everybody understands that other language (in this case, English), which raises the question w...

Re: o kama sona e toki pona!

toki! The text is wrong. Pije's has recently updated "poka" to "lon poka". Can you give a link to the sentence in question, please? lecture 10, Practice, "Whom did you go with?" Thanks. I notified Pije. It should be "sina tawa lon poka pi jan seme?" "sin...

Re: How do you say/translate this word/phrase into Toki Pona?

Hi all, How would you people say freedom / liberty in Toki Pona? Thanks in advance. This should be safe: (jan) ala li lawa e mi. Experimenting, I'm also thinking in the direction of using "taso": mi taso wawa. Perhaps this could also be understood: mi wan wawa. Or just: mi wawa. taso PART...
