Re: nasin nanpa pi toki Topisin (toki pona number system based on Tok Pisin)

Not sure how this will work exactly, since the sequence is now a noun and thus not aplausible modifier. ? "17men" is 'jan pi nanpa Wan Seven'?

Re: nasin nanpa pi toki Topisin (toki pona number system based on Tok Pisin)

New version (choice of words) duly entered into the groaning file.
Note (as often) putting ‘nanpa’ in front of these strings converts them to ordinals; not what is intended.

Re: lon anpa pi suno mun

Don't see the point of 'anpa pi'; '(lon) suno mun' seems enough. I miss 'jan pona mi Peko o' Don't need second 'tawa mi', but it is ok to have it -- or use 'pana' instead of 'tawa mi' as verb. 'moli' instead of 'ke pana ala e suno' 'mi jo ala e seli' 'tawa olin sewi' (joke coming up) No sure how <<P...

Re: Whistled Toki Pona

Thanks for that brief and informative description. tp, even though it has very few words in a large word space, has a large number of very similar words, made even more so by this reduction in the number of consonants (the vowels are less a problem, since tp is almost a three-vowel system anyhow). S...

Re: tan e nanpa pi toki pona

Basically, I agree. But I do think that, if we are going to break with tp to the extent of using place notation, we might as well (better) use a full set of digits as well and even some accompanying paraphernalia. My suggestion is around here somewhere, along with countless others. In your heading, ...

Re: Musical system - toki pi kalama musi or tkpm

I usually leave codes alone; I don't use them and rather dislike it when other use them (without clear text) in discussion space. But this one seems particularly ill-advised, since it can be used by so few people, either sending or receiving (me doubly so). I am sure that it is ingenious, but it doe...

Re: Left and Right

Chinese compasses point south, so about one quarter of the world is messed up by that choice. But more practically, "North" and"South" are not up for discussion. 'lete' and 'seli' have been in the language since the beginning and are enshrined in countless texts and textbooks and...
