I have been exploring Toki Pona and have found things that make me think of it as more than coincidence.
Syllabic meanings. Toki Pona is comprised up of various cv(n) morphemes
If you look at every word with ‘ki’ in it, all those words have similar meanings.
This means that ‘ki’ possibly has meaning itself.
So I’m working on categorizing and putting together a list (so far it’s about 60) of these syllables, and then putting the words of tp back together using this list.
tona- way of talking
wana- way of mind/thinking
teso- sea animal
