I don't remember, it was so long ago. I remember monsuta being on the official site, I guess Sonja took it off though.

I think I understand the concept of "pu"!

樸 pu , means the uncarved block, but it also means "pure", "natural". Maybe this is the intended use?

Re: Pale (minimalistic language without pronouns)

I've gotten around to doing a few translations. Lord's Prayer (nesa na sopa no kana) - the desire toward sky parent no kana na sopa - parent at sky o nome e pona - oh [your] name is good. pope o mosa na ko loko - [your] nation , please move toward this place. o pase nesa na tela mo sopa - please do ...

Pale (minimalistic language without pronouns)

This language was deeply inspired by Japanese. I love how simple the Japanese sentences are, and how they leave out pronouns sometimes. I figured it would be great to have a minimalistic language without pronouns, since they rely on context anyway. Besides, if there absolutely needs to be less ambig...

Re: Relexing for recreation - Is there a latinist in the roo

I see what you mean. This is a fun idea. I'll entertain it.

toki = toqui
pona = bon
mi = me
olin = aulen
sina - cina
e = es
ni = ne
li = li
seme = ceme

me aulen es cina. = mi olin e sina. (I love you)

ne li ceme. = what is that.

toqui bon = toki pona

Re: tika (a 100 word language inspired by Toki Pona)

Nice graphs. The language of origin part--that is an auxlang concern. Did you have in mind the various design considerations for an interlanguage/auxlang? In any case, the phonetics are restrictive enough that for many of these word pairs, you cant easily see the original. Having just recently trie...

Re: tika (a 100 word language inspired by Toki Pona)

It's going to be in the same word order as English (Subject, Verb, Object). Adjectives come before Nouns. Also, these is no word for "to be" so the word "pila" is used which means something like "truely", "really", "truth", "real", "fa...

tika (a 100 word language inspired by Toki Pona)

Toki Pona is good and all but I don't think that it's simple enough and now more and more words are being added so I made my own little language. The language has 100 words and I did not pick these words at random. They were selected from a list of most commonly used words. So, this language can exp...
