Re: jan Kikamesi. utala e jan Kunpapa

'wawa sina' "your strength", 'sina wawa' "strong you" Thanks, that clarifies it nicely and moves the story along well.

Re: jan Kikamesi. jan lawa pi ma tomo Uluku

Of course, bulls, while strong, are not used for their strength, oxen are, whatever the difference may be.

Using 'mani' does clarify somewhat, though -- a reason to have it (though what we are to make of "a strong euro v a weak dollar" i'm not sure.)

Re: Chinese calendar? (tenpo sike pi jan Sonko)

Well, 'mani' in the old sense didn't fit very well with the tp philosophy; the new sense works much better (the aura of that earlier civilization), Of course, 'mani' doesn't mean just cattle but sheep, goats, camels and camelids. probably pigs and maybe chickens (for small change). True, it does not...

Re: A ranged possibility: two-letter codes

Hell, I'm just impressed by your getting the stats that fast. I think that after the first decile or so, the results will fluctuate for words down to about the last decile, when they settle down again (until we get over some hangups like on 'unpa') I just report my immediate intuitive assignment and...

Re: Chinese calendar? (tenpo sike pi jan Sonko)

Actually, since writing this, I've come up with better names, partly because I discovered that the "pig" is called "elephant" in Thailand, and partly because I discovered the TP word "alasa". Elephant -- soweli suli (quite obvious. What land mammal is bigger than an el...

Re: pipi musi en pipi pali

Maybe 'e tomo e moku' (depends on how DeMorganish the rewrite rules are). I just do not know. "anu' seems to be safer. Only if the 'not' expands before the 'or' I don't know what's right here either. Does he want to eat (what this says) or want food, 'wile e moku'? Both. He says: 'I want to ea...

Re: jan Kikamesi. utala e jan Kunpapa

jan Kikamesi. utala e jan Kunpapa may be: jan sama tu li unata e jan H. just "utala e jan Kunpapa" looks odd because of lack of subject. For short titles nouns are better than sentences :) "A fight with..." (utala tawa???) Probably 'utala pi' would work - the connection is ambig...
