Re: sin pi toki nanpa tan jan Sonja

Yeah, how to deal with 'en' in anything but 'word en word' constructions (assuming that 'en' can be used between modifiers, say) needs some work, as does using prep phrases to modify nouns phrases. And the whole notion of counting days -- in any way -- is not yet a part of the sharply defined system...

Re: A ranged possibility: two-letter codes

The corpus is still very small (relatively speaking) so most content items will fluctuate wildly (another dragon tale would boost 'akesi' for example -- isn't there a snake coming in Kikamesi?), but the relative importance of the structural words should be pretty stable (though 'li' may rise a bit w...

Re: A ranged possibility: two-letter codes

Well, slash -- and back-slash -- also dash and equals are easy to write long hand and are lower case on (American) keyboards. I agree that slash and backslash should not both be used, but slash and dash take care of two major breaks, with maybe equals for the less common 'la'. And, again, I like jus...
