Re: Use "seme la" as a yes/no question marker

using 'anu seme' is reminds me of how Japanese forms questions by adding 'ka' at the end.

Re: A question to Buddhists

why not "weka" for empty or emptiness?
for form "selo" is a good translation or maybe "sijelo"(body/form)?
I wouldn't recognize "lupa" as empty if it saw it written, I would think an opening of some kind but I understand what they're getting at.

Re: S. Plath, "Mije mama suwi"

"Mije mama suwi" should be "mama mije pi suwi". No caps, 'mama' first, & a 'pi' before the suwi. Other than that I would say the name is a good translation.

Re: ع - Arabic script for Toki Pona poetry

errh. Since Arabic has final ns, why not use them? And why are the final ns left off in the consonant-only spelling (which gives rise to the 'luka'/'lukin' confusion)? I don't know enough (anything) about Arabic writing to know of reasons for this omission. You could do what Arabic does & add a...

Re: What do you think of these expressions?

I would translate snow as ko lete. Cloud is usually translated as kon walo. Mountain would be nena or nena suli. nena is any kind of a bump. nena kon would be the "bump" used for breathing air (kon). What is "lo"? Do you mean lon? I wouldn't use ma soweli/kala. I would use kulupu...

Re: Pale (minimalistic language without pronouns)

Is there a way to specify hard & soft, or as an example from toki pona is there an equivalent to palisa (long, hard) /kiwen (hard) & linja (long & flexible) or are they all just 'lena'? I assume 'tela' would be the equivalent to 'ko', right? I like some elements of this (mainly grammatic...

Re: mani anpa li pona

If "mani anpa" is supposed to be UBI, what about using "mani kin"? kin can mean 'indeed', so mani kin could be a way of saying 'guaranteed money' or money you are guaranteed to have. I know kin can apparently also be used for 'too' but that conflicts with 'sin la' which means als...

Re: Writing Toki Pona in the Hebrew alphabet

I know some don't like diacritics, but I prefer to actually attempt to transliterate toki pona's sounds to another script, when writing tp in another alphabet. with toki pona it makes perfect sense to me to write it in Semitic scripts since they leave a little ambiguity themselves because of omittin...
