Comments on esun

toki! mi jan Ote. I have noticed a new word in toki pona: esun. And I have some problems with it. I don't know what is the right place to comment the language itself, while not inventing anything nor suggesting any improvements. Hope it's not quite out of topic here. http://en.tokipona.org/wiki/esun...

Re: Comments on esun

'tenpo esun' doesn't have to be seven days My point. Etruscan-Roman nundinal cycle had 9 days. Then it's more difficult to determine (whithout numbers) when a next 'week' is. the visible halfway point between full [moon] and new and again between new and full comes to average out at about seven day...

Re: Comments on esun

There is a lot more than just trading that happens at an esun. Oh, I see. One goes to esun to meet people and interact. Some kind of meeting. A trade was less important while introducing this word, even if it's used to describe some trade concepts. There is no single word for to-receive, to-take. T...

Re: sin pi toki nanpa tan jan Sonja

As for Sonja's new invention, her mistake is the decimal system. numbers 100 and 20 are its derivates. I'm not sure. 20 is one of universal numbers for humans, the number of 'fingers' (in many languages there are no separate words for fingers and toes. You can name them all using one word). Then 10...

Re: Comments on esun

Just 2 cents about 'esun' in wiki: 1. market a community event where people trade goods; market, marketplace, bazaar, trading place 2. store a place where goods are offered for sale; store, shop Bazaar and marketplace are places, not events. I suppose it would be more clear to a reader to set it up ...

Re: sin pi toki nanpa tan jan Sonja

he overlooked the most important application of numbers in the internet communication - age. it is one of the most popular topics in chat (alongside with sex and location). Well, I've never asked anybody in the Internet about his age. What's the real difference between person 23- and 24-years-old? ...

Re: Comments on esun

pakala a! jaK Ote o, the event market or bazaar (or souk or ...) is older and more basic than the store jan Kipo o, I know they are older. But I suggest to gather market-events in one list (one meaning), when market-places in another. Please take a closer look at Sonja's text: 1. market a community...

Re: sin pi toki nanpa tan jan Sonja

'nanpa mute' means "many numbers" so can't the right thing to say about any particular number. I've talked about it with my jan lili last week, preparing an article about numbers in tp, and he noticed the same - suprise to me! - "nanpa mute" can mean "many numbers". Bu...

Re: sin pi toki nanpa tan jan Sonja

because we dont want to have some special words for 3 ... 9. wa have already special words for wan and tu . so i suggest to make a maximal use of this. to me the maximal use is a ternary system True. But it's more complicated than the old system with "tu-wan, tu-tu, tu-tu-wan" and more co...
