Re: soweli suli li lape

or, in more advisable manner: ona li wile e ni: ona li kama jo e jan Is it possible to do it in one sentence like: "ona li wile ( op ?) kama jo e jan"? There is "pi" word for re-grouping nouns-modifiers, but I suppose it can't be used for verbs: *ona li wile pi kama jo e jan. Ac...

Re: sin pi toki nanpa tan jan Sonja

Could you please quote the excerpt? I can't see anything like this stated there. I believe "nanpa tu" can mean an ordinal or cardinal number, depending on a sentence. nanpa n number oth -th (ordinal numbers) that is, if nanpa stands in a position of noun (e.g. subject, object) it means nu...

Re: sin pi toki nanpa tan jan Sonja

All of this detail work ignores the fundamental point, that tp actively discourages enumerating multitudes, as a matter of peace of mind, if nothing else.
