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

jan Lope o, toki! Congratulations on your grammar! You have just been quoted from it on Facebook, and so I had the opportunity to take a look at it. I have an urging question: in "Several pi-Phrases for one Compound Noun" you leave out the comma in "kulupu pi kalama musi→,← pi ma Inli...

Re: meli lili pi len loje

toki! Thanks for your help jan Tepan. You're welcome! :) I'm trying to take a look again... You don't need quotation marks in "sike suno nanpa “2017”". (suggestion) Ah... "moku li →kama← anpa" (suggestion) Wouldn't "pilin monsuta" be clearer than "monsuta"? &...

Re: meli lili pi len loje

toki! I've finished the first PDF of the story. It's the Alphabet version. You can find it here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1SLofeaJqmyZkxsSE4zTktFcWc (Edit: I've changed the link, I just corrected a small error) What do you think? Is it okay? I just want to check that everything's good bef...

Re: New font for sitelen pona : LINJA PONA

So what do you think ? pona ala pona ? :) pona mute! P.S.: I liked how you put the "musi" into "kalama musi". I wouldn't combine "tu" and "wan" into one symbol, because that would mean "one pair" (or "a one-ish two"), which is not "th...

Re: A question about "pi"

Toki! I'm not sure how to use pi, perhaps someone can help me. Here's what my problem is: bar = tomo pi telo nasa your bar = ? (tomo sina pi telo nasa maybe?) Also, for clarification: tomo pi telo nasa pi laso jelo = a green bar? (not a bar serving green drinks (absinthe, I guess.)) toki! The Offic...

Re: Hot topics

So yes, "lili" in "lili pona" is a noun, but it can be translated as an adjective: "small (enough)" For me, two words are composing a NA-templet (noun adjective), therefore, in my understanding, it is forbidden -- the first word "can be translated as an adjective&...

Sorry, I didn't mean to criticize your art. It just doesn't read like grammatical Toki Pona to me (which is done on purpose, as I realize only now).

Re: как сказать "кровь" на тп? --> telo suno = blood

Not only is " ni li pi mi " ungrammatical because " pi " has to stand between two noun phrases, the second noun phrase has to consist of more than one word, so a single " mi " is not enough in order to justify the use of " pi ". I've got the feeling that you a...

Re: Hot topics

- mute pona - mute ike - lili pona - lili ike Are these combinations allowed or forbidden in tp? Is "lili" a noun, here? janpona o, sure they are allowed. About nouns, let me take a simplier example first, because this topic causes much confusion: In " jan pona ", " pona &q...
