Re: otoke tokpon tenlil

Many problems with this system, in addition to those you note. Basically, it is designed to fit tp.

Re: mani anpa li pona

“bottom money” seems odd, but I don’t know how to say “guaranteed minimum income” or some such thing, so this probably works; “base income”, say. ‘seme’ forces a question mark at the end of the sentence. I am not sure you are posing a question and answering it or just say you want to talk about the ...

Re: ma kili lili mi

Not just ‘sewi supa’ but ‘lon sewi supa’ “above the plain” New here? ‘taso’ in sentence first position is probably the oldest and most common use “but”. In this sense it cannot occur inside a sentence, so those uses are “only” (or, possibly, “alone”). I’m not sure that was what was meant. It’s hard ...

Re: On importance of "please" and "thank you"

“Please” is assumed with all requests. “Thank you” and “You’re welcome” are both ‘pona’. These are old established expressions. If you want to be fancy (but why?), you could say ‘sina wile la’ or ‘ni li pona tawa sina la’ for “Please”. But, as noted, all this has been dealt with from very early on.

Re: Toki Pona and ISO 639

Well, of course there are several tp codes that need (or can use) custom keyboards, but tha has little to do wit tp. As for not being as useful, I am not sure what that is based on, since I use it for all sorts of things (not Philosophy nor Astrophysics yet but other fairly serious stuff). And, on t...

Re: Writing Toki Pona in the Hebrew alphabet

Since this is all just a code for tp, it doesn’t matter how well it correspond to the original (whatever that may be in this case) so long as it works for tp. You can even write it left to right or throw it Arabic or Japanese. Knock your lights out!

Re: About date, days of week, and counting

Tidy number system; just too Eurocentric perhaps (but mine is totally English) and needs development into higher numbers.

‘mun’ means, basically, "bright light in the night sky” without regard to what it may be outside our immediate perception of it.

Re: mi jan Lane

I would have out ‘seme’ right after ‘lukin’, closer to where it modifies. It is not a PPP, so shouldn’t be at the end. ‘moku kon pi kepeken toki pona. (modifier of more than one word). Not sure what you want here, but “smoking a pipe”(from the picture), “smoking a cigarette’ wuld be ‘moku kon pi kep...
