Re: la phrases

toki! I din't wrote that you can transfer any la phrase to a prepositional object with lon. We saw that a noun or pronoun start a la phrase normally. Where is the evidence that tan is here a preposition? pona! toki! Are other types of la-sentences relevant to this discussion? There is no proof. I'm...

Re: la phrases

toki! janTepanNetaPelin wrote la phrases start with a preposition. I can't see it. But are there posisibilities for preposition at the beginning of a la phrase? Why do you think it is possible? How can we distinguish such preposition from a noun? pona! toki! Let's consider a sentence like: "ta...

Re: toki!

I'm not using my own grammar. I try to use logic to fill the gabs. ;-) pona! toki! Either it works only with "lon" and "tan seme la" stands for "lon tan seme?", which is always replaced by "tan seme?" OR you can put "prepositional objects" in front ...
