For the life of me I can't figure out how to get real time updates of what goes on on these pages, so I don't use them much and they are both somewhat quiet compared to other places one can post toki pona messages.

In my option, if you have any writings in toki pona, it is important to publish them on the internet. Every time a cache of toki pona text disappears, it's like the library of Alexandria burning again because each document in toki pona is such a large percentage of the total corpus.

mi wile pana e ni tawa tomo toki ni...

mi sona e ni ala.
I don't understand.

(I want to give this to this chat room? Oh! You mean you plan to post it on the forum?)

3) tenpo pini la mi jo e kulupu toki. ni li pi moku. mi wile e ni: mi "ali kin" e ni.
pona anu ike?

A collection of recipes? "all-indeed"? A tidied up collection of what you posted on live journal would be most welcome (which much of was food related if I remember correctly).

More importantly, why does "ni li pi moku" sound natural to you? It's in the jan Pije lessons, but it is a construction the community (until today) has universally ignored in favor of "ni li jo e moku" What is the equavallent in your first language?

Yes! Post a term paper about TP to the forums! I'm not quite sure if anyone in the forums would like to read something in Tagalog, though...

Ooops. Sorry. I meant "kama ali kin", to revive the food-related post series.

I guess jan Pije has drilled the lesson in my head. Getting it out is not easy.
As for the L1 equivalent, it's "this is about food" (I learned English before Tagalog, whose equivalent is "ito ay tungkol sa pagkain")

I was going to say, go ahead, I'll just use google translate, but google translate doesn't support tagalog.

The jan Pije lessons only illustrate "li pi" to mean possession/ownership.

I see-- it is one of those constructions semantically similar to "I think about, I write about, I talk about" which else where people have noticed that toki pona doesn't have an obvious solution for. This is a use of "li pi" I could live with.

3) tenpo pini la mi jo e kulupu pi toki. ni li pi moku.


More importantly though, you have to have more than one word after the pi. So maybe

tenpo pini la mi jo e kulupu pi toki moku.

Of course! How could I have forgotten that rule!
