I found an interesting post on the following outdoor camping blog: http://blog.cheaptents.com/essential-travel-words-phrases/ The entry discusses what words should compose a hypothetical 100 word world language for traveling. The article also mentions toki pona. I have listed the words in the articl...

Re: Olympic games

Thank you for your corrections and explanations. I am posting the updated version on my google site.
The discussions of complements and modals are still confusing to me, not being a linguist, but I am learning more each day!

Re: toki pona as an auxlang

The 'ease of learning' and potential for use as an auxlang, are the main reasons I started learning TP. I understand that TP was not designed for use as an auxlang, but it is close enough to being complete for use as one (less directions - left, right, points of the compass & dealing with number...

Re: Practicing translating other people's texts

The funny thing is, I never had these problems before I started studying toki pona! 3 years of studying Latin and a couple of y...

Re: Lang-8

I have found that with this forum there are a number of experienced TP members who have been very helpful in correcting my TP posts. Why try something else, when this is working?

On the other hand, lang-8 could provide some additional publicity for TP.
