Re: Converting content words to function words

I'm not quite clear what the bold-face means; most of the words there are clearly content words (so maybe what I don't understand is what your content/function distinction is). What is this all leading up to? To write toki pona, one has to be inventive. If one is so inventive as to convert existing...

Re: Converting content words to function words

Hmm, lots to think about here. I'm reading up on "clitics", maybe that line of research has some guidance. If a word is a clitic, i.e. it can't stand alone. If it does stand alone it means something else. Wikipedia says that a clitic can still be a clitic even if it written with a space be...

Proposed reconstructed history of proto-toki-pona.

Is toki pona a language from the distant past, the present or distant future? I haven't ruled out that Jan Sonya is in contact with a lost tribe or is a time traveler from beyond the future apocalypse. For the moment, I think the data best supports a toki pona homeland in the Pacific, possibly a dec...

Re: Ardipithecus

If I can't put "tan" in a "la" clause and if I can only put "ni" in the prepositional phrase, this isn't so useful. Is suspect on the contrary, any noun phrase can follow the "tan" when it starts a prepositional phrase. mi moku tan insa mi ala. I eat because o...
