Honorifics.

Postby maskettenimminy » Tue Aug 04, 2009 10:19 am


Hello! (First post.) I'm a newcomer to Toki Pona; I still have a lot to learn.
Despite that, my studying Japanese and Japanese honorifics has made me wonder...
Would any want to come up with a set of Toki Pona honorifics?
It wouldn't need to be made official, just something for fun,
and also because jan is rather repetitive.

Well, on the up side, try 'pona' (of course) and 'suli' and maybe 'sewi' and
'lawa.' On the down side (deprecatives?), I think 'jaki' has it over 'ike' but
I don't know where to go from there.
More to the point, of course, is that the philosophy behind tp rejects any such
notion as honor (in the relevant sense), being strongly egalitarian. So, plain
ol' 'jan' works just fine from jan sonja to the rawest newbie.
