Re: o kama sona e toki pona!

Well, “with” was ‘lon poka’ for a while and then changed to just ‘poka’ by Sonja, of course, In pu she uses ‘lon poka’again, ignorig her own objections to it and nowhere explaining the reversion (NOT updating). The community standard is ‘poka’. The right place for adjectives is unsolved and we just ...

Re: Proposed revision to Chinese character set

The discussion of ‘supa’ seems to be that for ‘tan’, which is missing.

Re: o kama sona e toki pona!

Now more or less officially yet another dialect, the ‘poka’/‘lon poka’ divide. So far as i can tell, the bulk of the community of long standing is on the ‘poka’ side but understands the ‘lon poka’ position. More recent members follow Sonja’s revised position (‘lon poka’) and ignore her older one (‘p...

Re: About date, days of week, and counting

Well, weeks and their days and months are pretty arbitrary and so are their usual names. It might be best to take some neutral expressions for them, ones that would work however they are decided (5-day up to 14-day weeks, months of 20 or28 days or any number up to 32 or so). Of course, with the obvi...

Re: Questions regarding syntax and punctuation

kama pona! 1. There are no official uses of commas other than after the ‘o’ in vocatives (and even that is lost before imperatives, when the two ‘o’s fuse). However, there is a courtesy move when certain kinds of ambiguity arise, about what modifies what. So, terminal prepositional phrases maybe. be...

Re: Questions regarding syntax and punctuation

tp textbooks talk little about how sentences derive from other sentences (or earlier stages of sentences). But once you start doing those investigations, you find that rules are easier if you get (almost) all sentence modifiers in as terminal prepositional phrases and then spin ‘lon x’ at the end ou...

Well, of course I like the abacus number system (biquinary) but not the mix with thee additive digits. I would rather have two more digits. (‘si' and ‘po’, say). The binary code for digits is a simplification in some ways but makes for even longer numbers. And dropping the initial ‘ala’ sets the who...
