Re: toki kepeken nimi seme ?

Mato gave a list somewhere around here lately. I personally seem to stick to 'toki/pilin e ijo pi ...'. Some have suggested using 'sike' as in English, but that hasn't caught on. Some try hooking the topic directly on the verb 'toki pi ...,', but that leads t ambiguity with adverbs. Most go for just...

Re: "near", "far", "fast", "slow" in toki pona

'poka' seems to be the stock word for"near", though the exact usage is not settled: 'lon poka', 'poka tawa' are both used for "near to". Similarly, 'weka' seems to be used for "far", with 'tan' for "from". But that is unsettled, too. "fast" is usuall...

Re: Which words can be one word sentences in tp?

Any content word can be a sentence as answer to a question. Probably most words can be sentences as observatives. Imperatives and the like require 'o'. Of course, this does depend on what you mean by "sentence", since none of the cases listed would be generated by the grammar floating abou...

Re: toki musi pi ma Sonko

I don't see the point of the first correction, which is inside direct discourse. 'Lon poka' would mean spatially beside, here 'lon' just means accompanying as it should (though what follows suggests 'Lon poka' is also appropriate. All the possibilities are correct, including (probably) 'sama li tawa...

Re: tenpo sitelen Tomaniki (Dominick's Calendar)

My first ever term paper was on the Mayan calendar and it has stuck with me. We could fairly easily implement more of that mechanism to cover longer stretches of time, but I'm not a fan of that kind of tinkering (though most epigones find it irresistible).
