Re: jan gbnmvfx

Sorry, I was caught in a tp ambiguity, what the scope of a question is. ‘mi sona e ni: sina kepeken e nimi ‘, tan seme’ makes the whole complex sentence + display appear to be a question. It is an odd one, to be sure, since we don’t ordinary say we know something that we are questioning. But you mig...

Re: jan gbnmvfx

Lope’s apostrophe, as I understand it, attached to ‘li’ indicates that the following word (the “verb”) is either a noun or an adjective, thus getting rid of the ‘ona li moku’ = "he eats” or “He is food” ambiguity. More profoundly it stands for an invisible copula (which tp neither has nor needs...

Re: jan gbnmvfx

Maybe ‘mi sona ala e nimi sina. ni li ike’. That is, it’s too bad you don’t understand my words, not that the words themselves are bad (what you said). But going back a page, I still don’t understand your first round of ‘nimi sina li ike e mi’. Nor the point of msot of the rest of what you said.

Re: toki! mi jan Matali

Generally, there is little to object to Tepan’s corrections. I would say just ‘poka mi’ rather than ‘lon poka mi’ but that is dialectic within pu (Sonja has supported both expressions). coffee is variously ‘telo wawa’.’telo pimeja’ or ‘telo pimeja wawa, etc. (also ‘telo pi lape ala’) There is nothin...
