Re: Translation problem

toki!

Jes, the three circles can be read as "kulupu" and the two lines above as "sama", "kulupu sama" = "same group". The French text reveals that the author had no Toki Pona background whatsoever, though.

Re: First time here. A couple questions...

Hi Jethro, a few remarks about this thread: The particle pi is used to divide a second noun group that describe a first noun group. -- (from the official Toki Pona book by Sonja Lang (the creator of the language)) pi separates a noun from another noun that has an adjective -- (from Pije's lessons, t...

Re: Ideas for Phonology. Three vowel system.

Wow! The three-vowel system fits surprisingly well for Toki Pona! The only word pair that becomes indistinguishable is ken ~ kin . toki! I noticed that, too. Luckily, if you follow the official Toki Pona book by Sonja Lang, there is no need to use "kin", as it's a mere synonym of "a&...

Re: Use "seme la" as a yes/no question marker

jan Asi o, toki! Mind that "x la ..." is no different from "... lon x", so "seme la ..." would be the same as "... lon seme", which literally means "at what" and is used for asking "where". So, "seme la sina pali?"/"sina pali...

Re: kalama musi tan jan musi Pitalesi kepeken toki pona

toki! "meli" works ("a/the woman"), but usually one would say "ona" or, if necessary, "ona meli". One would usually say "toki e ni" ("said that"), but it could be argued that "toki ni" ("said so") also works. "sona ...

Thanks!
:D


Hm, thanks? (I don't understand the "yet"-part, to be honest.)

The idea of blocking people was to avoid bullying and trolling, not to win an argument.

Cheers!

Here is a link to the grammatical terms published in "Toki Pona Taso" (Facebook group) for parts-of-speech and parts-of-sentence in Toki Pona as used in my grammar document.

Re: Is "poka" a spatial noun only or can it be a preposition too?

What would preposition "sewi" mean? "poka" exists because we want to have "with", one of the more basic prepositions present in almost all languages (if not all), it was chosen to reduce word count, since it would have been "kan". There is no preposition that...

Yes. (But nothing Esperanto-centric from my point of view.)
