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

Hi all, I'm starting this thread for asking how would you say a word or a sentence in Toki Pona. I could already save some, but some other words and phrases are getting tricky in my head. For instance, a couple of hours ago, I was thinking about how one would say a known person in Toki Pona. I firs...

Re: About the "Toki Pona: The Simple Way Of Life" book

Hello all, Has anyone read a book titled Toki Pona: The Simple Way Of Life ? It's somehow based on the Toki Pona: The Language Of Good book, but there's a lot of strange things that don't appear in the official book. For instance, a couple of words, like these ones: monsuta = monster namako = spice...

And it is similar to toki pona in that it doesn’t mark whether a word is an adjective or verb etc. For example: 他很好 tā hěn hǎo “He very good” (He is good) Because the word is not marked as an adjective or a verb, most linguist...
