Toki. nimi mi li Chowlett

sina mute o! nimi mi li Chowlett. mi kama li sona pi toki pona. ... That's about as far as I can manage at the moment (and I hope I haven't mangled it too much!) I read about Toki Pona in a Guardian Online article, and thought I'd give it a try. I'm using memrise's "Toki Pona Complete" cou...

Re: Toki. nimi mi li Chowlett

jan Lope o, toki! Thanks for the link to your lessons, and the correction on my mangled phrases! Let me try to understand the second one. I can see that my first attempt is wrong. Would I be right in saying that "mi kama li sona" could be read as "my approach knows"? But "so...

Re: Toki. nimi mi li Chowlett

o jan ale, toki! Thanks for your help. I don't know why the adjective order hadn't stuck, it's actually pretty straightforward :oops: - although I tend to forget whether "pot plant green" is a green pot for a plant, or a pot for a green plant. Anyway, let's have a bit more practice. I'll p...

Re: Toki. nimi mi li Chowlett

Well, it's not a million miles off... I was aiming for: "I learn other languages by translating English works into the other language". Except for the modifier order of ante toki, I'm fairly happy with that. "Where (should I) write (such translations)?". I was close, I think. I'm...

Re: Toki. nimi mi li Chowlett

o jan Kipo, pona! mi sitelen lon kulupu pi 'ante toki'. As for copyright, this being just an idle time-filler for me, I can't see me ever getting through more than about a chapter of any given work, which is probably on the right side of "fair use". Where that distinction exists - UK law d...

Re: jan Ari Pota en kiwen pi jan sona

Thanks - I'll edit the top post in a bit. prob just 'Se Ke' or 'Seje Keje' OK. I did think the aie cluster was a bit weird. In my defence, I was using the transliterator on tokipona.net Interesting. I would have put the gender markers before the name, but this seems to make a point better. Thanks. Y...

Re: jan Ari Pota en kiwen pi jan sona

Ok, thanks. I've updated again, to go for "ni li kepeken mute pi ni: ona li lukin tenpo mute e sewi sinpin e jan poka." I'm happy to concede that the "craning her neck..." phrase is a difficult one, so I'll try approaching it by stages! Hopefully what I have there is something li...

Re: jan Ari Pota en kiwen pi jan sona

Excellent, thanks. I did wonder about kin. And I'm learning that "lon" is a very useful word! Let's have some more translation. There are quite a few turns of phrase I couldn't even have a stab at, here: jan Taseli li jo e wile ona ali. taso ona li sona e ijo lon anpa selo kin. pilin ona p...
