Re: toki!

Or 'e toki Epelanto' or 'mi toki kepeken toki Epelanto'. I have to admit that the decision to use 'kepeken' has become controversial again after several years as established usage, but it is still the established usage.

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

How will that work. 'pi' is not built to remove ambiguities, merely to establish certain structures.

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

But 'tomo telo nasa' doesn't mean "bar", Ther is no ambiguity. At best, someone who wanted to say "bar" made a mistake and left out the 'pi'.

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

"bar" is a good English word for 'tomo pi telo nasa', but not for 'tomo telo nasa'. I haven't studied your proposal beyond noting that it seems to leave all the problems of the present situation, while adding the semantic ambiguities of radically different meanings for 'mute', 'ali' (as I ...

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

And, if it is 'wan', 'tu' or 'luka' it is additive, but 'mute' or 'Ali' it is multiplicative. More and more complex, with the additive parts before the multiplicative being a multiplier as a whole and the additive parts after being additive again. What do you do with something like 125000, which see...
