First of all, my english sucks, i beg your understanding.
Second, I think I have a decent, easy symbol system for writing toki pona. I will post about it here.
I've allways thought it would be pretty cool if toki pona could use a standarized writing system of its own. There are some few attemps on doing so, most of them being posted in this forums. I saw the one made by phr4nkr4wk5 posted in . I think mine's more efficient (no offense intended) because two reasons:
1. The symbols in my system are (i think) easier to remember and understand.
2. Aesthetics. In my humild opinion, the curvy-shaped nature on the system I'm posting here goes along with the nature of the toki pona. phr4nkr4wk5 symbols are very sharpie and may be excelently used in a language intended to sound more aggresive.
Having settled this, i proceed with the system itself:
Thinking about it for a while, I realize the best way to have a writing system on toki pona should be a phonetic-based one. We have nine consonants: k, n, m, p, s, t, j, l, and w. Here are the symbols we will use for them:
As you can see, the symbols are made by te "C" like and the "L" like forms. I just rotate them according to the shape of the letter. For the W i used a circle just because i thought it looked nice. (:3)
Now, a basic phonem in the system is made by [consonant+vowel], such PO, SI, TA, etc. for the vowel we will add a little apostrophe or dot in different places; upper left for A, upper right for E, dot in center for I, lower left for O, and lower right for U. Just like this:
Here's another example using M consonant:
That's the basis for our system and you can start writing words like "toki" or "suno". However. What if i want to write "akesi", "e" or "lukin"?
For the vowels alone, we have these other symbols:
As for the N, we use the "~" in top of our symbol. Like this:
...And that should cover everything. Now, onto some examples (ignore the "more", they are the only one):
Now, if you understand the system, why not try this exercise?
sina pilin seme e sitelen mi? I'm fully open to comments and suggestions. Let's make a standarized symbol system we can all use!
