My name is Brian and I'm new to the forum here. To introduce myself, I'm 14 years old, love languages, and am from Pennsylvania.
I have been interested in toki pona for about two or three years now, and have enjoyed very much jan Pije's lessons and the tokipona.org site.
Just awhile back I had been spending some time on the #tokipona IRC chat; you may have seen me there.
Anyway, I just wanted to say first how much I love toki pona and am inspired by it before I announce my other matter.
I have always wanted to create a language myself, and have been gathering ideas for the past couple years.
Finally, today, upon watching one of Arpee's videos on YouTube, I decided to make one.
I wanted to make a "bare-bones" elemental-style toki pona-inspired language, but I heard one thing that interested me. Arpee said that there had been a challenge to see if someone could make a 20-word language.
I did just about that, and made "ta lo ne", a small language of thirty words that goes down to the bases of human emotion and thought.
I put together the language as it is presented, just in a few hours. But the thought is pretty intricate.
Anyway, I don't want to babble but I wanted to let people know about the website I just made for ta lo ne.
I am hoping that I may meet some fellow conlangers who enjoy languages like toki pona and may like to look into my language for ideas.
