Re: kulupu nimi "sona 'Piloloki'" li pona ala pona?

I think you could maybe generalize 'Biology' as "sona pi soweli en kasi" and be understood. but yeah, tp does not seem to make an easy distinction between "alive" and its opposite, or "organism" and "inorganic". maybe intentionally?

Re: kulupu nimi "sona 'Piloloki'" li pona ala pona?

It presumes that "soweli" (a mammal) means also, in a wider sense, "an animal", a common language category for mammals, reptiles, amphibia, fish, birds, insects and so on. Is it the case? In some languages 'bird' and 'fish' are not naturally subordinated to 'animal'. See Genesis...

Re: toki musi mi

As I said, 'pana' just seems wrong to me but 'tawa' certainly works. I just think 'tawa' is overused. I can't seem to be able to search the old yahoo discussion board for 'pana' but I know there are several good examples in there. the problem with 'lon' is that while it does mean 'in' and seems to ...

Re: toki nasa "jan lawa Oliki" pi jan Pusikin.

for "long time ago" I prefer "tenpo suli pini la..." because the old webpage for "time/tenpo" says: tenpo suli -- long time tenpo mute -- often, many times This is a useful distinction. It brings to light, though, that lili contrasts with both mute and suli , so: tenpo...

Re: ijo lili li pakala lili

2. 2.'jan suli pi tan ma lili Teja'it is better without pi . why do we need it? A. The phrase is a right grouped unit within a left grouping, which would ordinarily call for 'pi' B. It removes an ambiguity (to which I am, admittedly, particularly vulnerable) I think I am still unclear what you are t...
