By the way, everyone:
There have been a number of minor changes and improvements as Toki
Pona is being refined and used in daily chat. Examples include
changes to the meaning of "kin", the removal of "en", new words
like "kulupu" "mu" and "pata", and expanded versatility of "la".
I am in the process of rewriting the entire Toki Pona lessons to
reflect the current state of the language. In the next 2-3 weeks, I
hope to provide you with tool that will allow anyone to master Toki
As the chat logs demonstrate, it is completely possible to use Toki
Pona to talk about everyday life and also for deeper philosophical
conversations about the nature of life.
Anyone who wants to fully learn the language and all its current
features and "rules" will have everything they'd ever need to get up
to par and join in on any conversation.
I am estimating it may take about 25 lessons of the same "bite-size"
length as the "old" lessons that are presently on www.tokipona.org. I
prefer to teach things in a simple, step by step approach that is
easy for everyone, whether you're a natural linguist or have no
experience with foreign languages whatsoever.
ale li pona!
