Re: Use of "la" vs. putting adj./adv. after verb?

Hi everyone! I'm new here, but hope to one day be a fluent tokiponist. I'm a little confused as to the use of "la." According to this: http://rowa.giso.de/languages/toki-pona/english/toki-pona-lessons_en.pdf it "separates an adverb of context" from the sentence. I don't know wha...

Re: toki! mi jan Natan.

toki! mi jan Natan. Or should that be nimi mi li Natan? pu says the latter, yet I see the former in use often. After reading http://www.suburbandestiny.com/?p=799 , I believe my aim will be to use toki pona as the original, simple, way of communication set out in pu. (If I want to speak, write or t...

Re: toki. mi jan Loteni

Hi, I am learning toki pona :) I am really loving the language, I got the official book and read it 100s of times, and really meditated on it, and have begun to understand some of it :D. But I am finding it hard to find online resources and pointers to help with this. Maybe there are people here wh...

Re: A few questions from a beginner.

I'm pretty new to toki pona but I was curious if this was an acceptable way to say "I believe/don't believe this". Since 'ni li pona tawa mi' is "This is good to me", which is implying that it's your opinion that it's good because it's good to you. Could you also say 'ni li lon ...

Re: pilin, ala taso pilin

"sina pona ala pona moku?" could also mean "are you good or not good at eating?" using E-o, between "cxu vi mangxis bone?" and "cxu vi bonigxis mangxe?", though i feel the former is more intuitive, they are essentially the same question. "sina moku ala m...
