Re: "mi" li "mi mute"

"in the context of me, in my world"

OK, it seems to be your personal Toki Pona slang. But who can understand it?

'ni kin' is a fragment and so grammars go crazy with it and its ilk.

Bad grammar is no basis for good understanding, especially in Toki Pona.

Re: "mi" li "mi mute"

'mi la' = "In my opinion"


"In my opinion" = mi pilin e ni: ...
'mi la ...' = IF mi THEN ... ??? - It makes no sence for me.

ni kin:

The grammar is wrong. Maybe you mean: "ni li kin."?

jan AetherStar o, toki!

mi pilin e ni: pilin sina li pona. tenpo mute la "mi" li "mi mute".

BTW: The commas are confusing.

Re: Describing Toki Pona with the computer language Prolog and DCG

I still find it hard to imagine a rule that maximizes the number of modifiers, though there are stylistic reasons to keep the number small. Still, jan lili li wile e tomo tawa seli loje suno suli "The child wanted a big shiny red fire truck" seems perfectly reasonable. Your sentence is ri...

Re: I'm updating my Toki Pona lessons an I'm looking for good text examples

The problem with describing the "official" tp is that there is no such thing. There is no tp organization, so no certification and the like. But there are several Toki Pona lessons. I try to consider these. We have (at least) Pije, which is a rather conservative language, ignoring several...

Re: I'm updating my Toki Pona lessons an I'm looking for good text examples

'sitelen' 'sitelen tawa … li kin pona' makes no sense, what would stressing 'li' do? I assume the 'kin' goes just before the 'li', at the end of the NP. " ... li kin ... " is possible. Remember Toki Pona has no word for "be". "kin" as an adverb can stress the hidden &q...

Re: I'm updating my Toki Pona lessons an I'm looking for good text examples

Jan Kipo o, toki! Thanks for you notes. Several years ago I translated jan Pije's lessons to German an put the English and German version in a layout with latex. My aim was to learn Toki Pona. For me jan Pije's lessons were the best lessons in this time. Later I had no time for Toki Pona. Now I have...
