The first picture has two long word clusters, apparently nouns though maybe verbs. I assume they are meant to be sentences with, say, a 'li' after 'jan' and an 'e' before 'ni'. The second is maybe an imperative, lacking initial 'o'? The second note says "no" to the latter, making it an infinitive with 'ken' (which can, however, be a transitive verb "to empower"; it just doesn't make much sense here).
So the second picture works fine, though I still don't see the point of the 'kin'.
Third picture. "A different language? I don't think" presumably with "so" 'e ni'.
Cat: I assume the picture stands in for the subject here (interesting)
Scream: missing 'o' or 'li'?
'Crat: Missing 'li'? "forgets"?
Brat: 'nimi 'pi''. (names are adjectives).
jan Kipo o pona e ike pi mi mute.
1. You can't simply talk in toki pona.
Obviously, the simplest way to say: jan li ken ala toki kepeken toki pona
Butbhow to add "simply"?
2. Not interested girl
Mi pilin ala - maybe, "mi pilin ala e ni" - i'm not impressed - is it right?
On cat I've posted what
