Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

Yes, but there is a notion of time inside of those words. And in toki pona, words don't have a meaning that can't change, just a general idea. So you can create new meanings related to the word. For example, monsuta means monster, but some people had the idea to use it with the meaning "to be f...

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

It's not about multiplication, but about how many times a number is repeated. And it's not an English calque, I am French so I did a copy of French: deux fois= tenpo tu= two times.

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

I used that way, because it's the most convenient. And I used it because it means "times" for example: tenpo tu wan la: three times. With other words it would have been absolute nonsense.

so if there is pi, it's the second method, but if there is no pi, it's the first.

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

for big numbers, you can use the previous method or the new one with it.
For example, 1 862 374= wan pi luka tu wan pi luka wan pi tu pi tu wan pi luka tu pi tu tu
1 000 000= luka luka ali ali ali(10*100*100*100)

Re: nasin nanpa kepeken toki pona/How to count in toki pona

mi jo e pilin ante.
I have an other idea.
We could "spell" a number, and here we could use "pi" to separate the numbers.
For example: 2014= tu pi ala pi wan pi tu tu
1995= wan pi luka tu tu pi luka tu tu pi luka
It seems to be easier than the previous method.
