Re: sewi li lon anu seme ?

sewi are a distinct sort of thing from jan. this is objectionable anthropomorphism. But, taking it as metaphorical OK.

If you are talking about common everyday arguments, people make, that do not know much about logic, then yeah, but you would expect that, and it applies to atheistic arguments as well. Lets assume you are not saying something so meaningless, and a...

Re: The Official Toki Pona Dictionary

I don't really want to get into a debate about dialects here, as I mentioned in the OP. I know nothing about Sonja, I'm not interested in celebrities. So she invented this language and wrote this book, and sure i've studied the book a bit, so I know she is extremely intelligent, very kind and danger...

Re: sewi li lon anu seme ?
