Re: Word Idea For Triangle - Sanku

Preaching to the choir. But the minimalism remains as defining tp. So, adding a new word takes some arguing, though I don’t know just who you have to convince. Most efforts have failed, as have most arguments to get rid of words, which ought to be easier. Good luck!

Re: Word Idea For Triangle - Sanku

Time spent with tpis not wasted. It is clearly the most successful small language so you can learn a lot about what works (in general, not particular items, perhaps). On the other hand, it has many flaws (often in particular, but also in general) so that you can get an idea what to avoid. One thing ...

Re: Rilke, "Dirait-on": translation

I don’t do poetry, so this is just about grammar, not scansion or rhetoric. I don’t know what you mean by the dash; it has been used in various ways by different people but the present use is not clear. "becoming water” or some such isn’t very clear eitheer but may work as poetry. ‘selo’ is goo...

Re: mi jan Ale!

Napoli li lon ma lili Polita anu seme? kama sona tawa toki pona. ‘kama sina pona’ is hard to parse “ Become you well” or so, maybe. ‘Kama pona tawa sina’ is easier to understand. But you are coming in, not already in, and greeting, so ‘toki’ is your line and us insiders say “Wecome.”.There are simil...

Re: T-shirts available!

This ad is 10 years old. I doubt that the items are still available or being made. The glow-in- the-dark models never appears, for example.

Re: Rilke, "Dirait-on": translation

If the water metaphor works, it is very good. If not, something from ‘weka e’ might still work,, but is rather prosaic, as are lines based on ‘taso’ “alone”. ‘sama’ is always right but ‘ona’ may be acceptable in some cases (‘mi’ and ‘sina’ seem to be, maybe even ‘ona’). English is quite clear that ‘...

Re: toki! mi jan Kaja

prob just ‘lon (ma) Nusilan’ since you haven’t gone anywhere. ‘nimi ante pi ma Atelola’, not a verb-object construction here. “Aoteoroa’ is open to a number of tp versionss, though yours is not an ovious one . The simplest is probably ‘A(jo)telowa“ They named this for one time people of New Zealand”...

This goes into the file, better than many, worse than some: too long, occasionally too complex. Continues to try and mix the tp system with a real number syste, with usually muddling results. Nothing strikingly new, except ‘anpa’, which isn’t oo wonderful.
