Re: Do I miss a word?

Your count seems right, but until we get an official list, it is hard to say (I can't find anything about 'pu,' for example).

Re: pilin ike wawa

I wonder whether 'lon poka jan ike' is going to cut it as a noun phrase. I suppose it means "being with an enemy(or just a bad person)" although it could be (except for its position) "beside an enemy." I suppose it works, but it looks very odd. It felt odd when I wrote it, but I...

Re: ijo lili li pakala lili

1. (sitelen, tawa / sitelen tawa) The more I think about this the more I like it. It seems unobtrusive but clarifying. I'd like to see how people use it and if it proves as useful as it looks. I like it too and I think there are enough bad cases (admittedly mostly with 'tawa' but 'poka' and 'lon' a...

Re: ijo lili li pakala lili

2.'jan suli pi tan ma lili Teja'it is better without pi . why do we need it? A. The phrase is a right grouped unit within a left grouping, which would ordinarily call for 'pi' B.

Re: ijo lili li pakala lili

6. the problem of multiple "la". e.g. A la B means if A, then B; A=>B what could A la B la C mean? a range of possibilities: A=>(B=>C) (A=>B)=>C (A=>B)&(A=>C) (A=>C)&(B=>C) --------- I haven't seen a lot of that, but it is a nice potential problem. Aside from the advice to avoid t...

ijo lili li pakala lili
