a a a! jan Kipo is right. tenpo ni kin la mi toki ike e toki Tunku (Tunu? Unku? tenpo li mute. mi wile lape. mi sona ala). I should've said Dyeu Phter (vocative of deiwos/dyeus).

Looks like he's speaking PIE or Dngnu
jan Mato o. You're kinda right, too, though I was really just aiming for a vaguely humorous plea to an old god of whom I don't fully reject the improbable but not totally impossible existence to save me from the ike of modern toki pona, and decided to use an interesting prehistoric tongue. As for Dnghu.org and MIE, btw, I honestly don't really like the idea of turning PIE into a fully functional modern language, though, especially for political reasons. It just seems.. I dunno.. vaguely wrong in a way, or at the very least pointless. There's all kinds of perfectly good Indo-Europeans out there for those who want to learn its descendents.
But on the main topic, I'm up to 26 (counting the English spelling system on jan Mato's website). Are there any more I'm missing? Or, even better, a finished version of nasin sitelen pi nimi sitelen / anybody willing to finish it?
Yo estuve aquí.
