jan Kipo,

Thank you so much for taking so much time about this book!

So, in a few words, we could say this book is not recommended to learn Toki Pona, couldn't we? It's a pity there are books like this, because they may confuse people who really want to learn this language.

Again, thanks for your time and dedication! ;)

Yes, this is my least favorite book. I haven’t gone through it more than I just did, but I fear, from what I have heard, that it contains other howlers as it goes one. And many negative things baout ordinary tp, even including some of Sonja’s and, of course (see Lope’s note on Forums), any of mine.

But there's a lot more of crazy things in that book. You're gonna have fun for sure. :lol:

I use the apostrophes in my lessons to identify a predicate that does not consist of a verb. As I wrote "But that's not an official rule."

Unfortunately, such a statement has nothing to do with objective and concrete criticism. Unfortunately, it is not helpful.
