Re: Comparisons

... toki, jan Kuka o! Thanks for clarifying your third objection. I understand that it sounds awkward to describe, say, two tiny things such as microbes and say that one of them is "big". The official book has this sentence, though (as far as I can remember): "jan li suli mute, mani ...

Re: Comparisons

Regarding the idea of using "mute" as a preposition, I see three objections: toki, jan Kuka o! I share objections number 1 and 2 (the third one is over my head at the moment. :D ). It appears as if someone wanted to add and remove the expression "lon poka (pi)" (in the sense of ...

Re: indirect questions

jan Kuka o, I understand you use "sama" not in the sense of "being same" but in the sense of "what it is like", and therefore you use "lon" not as "being there" but "where it is". Whereas this might work with transitive verbs, I avoid it wi...

Re: indirect questions

jan Kuka o, "sama" as identity is a good idea, but it doesn't solve the problem of ambiguity. "mi sona ala e sama pi jan ni" also reads as "I don't know that this person is the same". Here is my take: "mi sona ala e jan ni: ona ni li kama." "mi sona e jan...
