And to even shorten the topic, you can merely also say, 'mi pakala!',
lol. Remember that you can't use 'pi' unless it is like:
ona li ken toki e ni: 'mi pakala' tan ni: ona li lili e nimi. ona li
ken ala kepeken e 'pi' tan nasin sina. sina wile pali e ni:
'word' pi 'word' 'modifier'
tomo telo nasa (crazy washroom), en tomo pi telo nasa (bar, place of
Nifty little thing, that 'pi'. I myself want to contribute to TP by
adding some sort of lyric to a song, but modern-day pop songs are too
hard, especially with the syllables, so it bothers me so much.
'pi' li nasa. mi wile pali e kalama musi tan ni: mi wile pana e pona
tawa toki pona. taso tenpo ni la kalama musi en ijo pi kalama musi li
pona ala mute tawa toki pona.
I'm very appreciative of your enthusiasm towards toki pona. I myself
think that using toki pona as an example in the classroom would be a
wonderful idea to teach as a basis for whatever. That is, if it is
accepted. Sonja indeed is genius with this language, and I use it
everyday as much as I can. I'm trying to teach it to my friend, to
give a little contribution to its child-like wonder of a language,
and to agree, it is indeed beautiful, even moreso cute!
