言好!Toki pona written with Han characters.

Postby janU » Sun Mar 04, 2018 10:02 pm

The toki pona classic word list: http://tokipona.net/tp/classicwordlist.aspx included a character/Japanese hiragana for each word. I noticed that there are a couple of mistakes, as well as a few characters which I think would have made more sense.

I mostly tried to stick with more historical and general characters which are not just used in Mandarin grammar, but are found across other dialects and in Japanese. I also had the idea to use the character for dragon as akesi.

If toki is 言 and pona is 好, toki pona would be 言好,this would mean the Chinese and Japanese terms for the toki pona language could be 言好语/言好語. Since Vietnamese and Korean were historically written in Han characters this would mean that Toki Pona could translate as ngôn háo in Vietnamese and 언호어 in Korean, I dont speak Korean or Viet so correct me if I am wrong.

Here are my suggestions. Please tell me any of your ideas, or ways you think of to improve this.
