It is preferable for me to call this simplicity "pona", which is a style, not grammar. "Keep Toki Pona as simple as possible!" is not a grammatical rule.

jan Tepan o, toki!

"Simplify your thoughts. Less is more." pu page 9

This is not only a style. The grammar has to be simple as well.

Think about the German "Beamtendeutsch". Often It uses complicated grammar with nested subordinate sentences to hide a simple fact. Toki Pona has to be the opposite.

I' wrote at the beginning of my lessons: "Lawyers, bureaucrats, theologians and politicians are be warned of the side-effect of this language. "

Well, there are several notions of what tp is for -- all of them rooted in Sonja's uses of it and talk about it. I'm not sure about Lope's own ideas, except that he focuses on preventing anything he considers a complexity. That doesn't work for a lot of people in the community, including some that like the pseudoDaoist motifs.

You can use this dictionary with the software ding ( http://www-user.tu-chemnitz.de/~fri/ding/ ).
If you need it for an other dictionary software please let me know it. I'll try to convert it.

Any revision is welcome if it moves toward the community standard, but I fear Lope,s won't. I'm particularly worried about "the missing "be"", since tp has no ,"be" to be missing.

I make an online version of my dictionary. You can make a Quiz by press "Random". You can search a string you type in the field. Or you can click on a word in the results.

https://htmlpreview.github.io/?https:// ... onary.html

Technical background: The dictionary will be automatically generated from my Toki Pona lessons when they are updated. Thanks to travis-ci.org https://travis-ci.org/jan-Lope/Toki_Pon ... ns_English
