Re: toki! mi jan kulupu sin!

OK, but I don't do poetry: no sense of meter, rhyme, metaphor or anything else you need for poetry. Again, try Facebook, which has several songwriters. (Of course, I am not the only person here but it often seems like it.)

Re: toki! mi jan kulupu sin!

jan Tanjele o, kama pona tawa toki pona. sina ken wile e nimi sina. nimi pi lon sinpin li pilin mi taso. This is a pretty good place for longish discussions and for presenting polished works, like translations or stories. But to really get into the language, you should probably get on the toki pona ...

Re: toki!

ike la jan Lope li kepeken pu lon tempo lili kin. toki pu li pona tawa ona la on a li kepeken pu. (I suspect he objects to 'kepeken pu' in place of 'kepeken e pu', as well. I object to 'pu' as a tp noun for the book, rather than a intransitive verb.)

Re: toki!

Note, the hyper orthodox (but innovative) Lope, does not recognize that 'sama' is a preposition, even though it is in pu. Or maybe he doesn't allow non sentential 'la' phrases.

anu? and ala

'anu' is both a conjunction, "or", and interrogative "which of?" The difference in print is the presence or absence of a question mark at the end (what it is in speech is unclear). As an interrogative, it frames choice questions 'x anu y?'. It is usually said that there are two p...

Re: tan e nanpa pi toki pona

Hmmm! Why 15 rather than 555? Presumably any acceptable system that can handle this problem says something like Luka Luka Luka' (Oh! palm to forehead!). I assume that it will be clear in context what system is in use or even have optional order-of-magnitude fillers "five hundred and fifty and f...

Re: tan e nanpa pi toki pona

Yes, it has been thought of before and has generated no enthusiasm. As I have said before, the community is about equally split between those who think the large numbers are an abomination and those who think tp needs a decimal system. Systems other than decimal are out because the require relearnin...

Re: A Tool for Spelling, Grammar Check and Ambiguity Check of Toki Pona Sentences

I kinda wish I could remember what it was that I did that was rude or spammy. The worst I can remember is disagreeing about the formulation of the 'pi' rule and suggesting that several other things in his grammar were somewhat outdated by community standards. I suppose now I should add my objection ...
