  1. "illegal" is a perfectly normal linguistic term which has absolutely nothing to do with your literal interpretation of it. people say things like "a four-syllable initial cluster is illegal in English" all the time.

  2. Please don't be so rude about specific IPA use, subtle variation between phoneticians exists and there are some contexts where some of them would do what forthentwice did. IPA is a tool and it served its purpose here well. The pronunciation of Italian loanwords in English vary a LOT too.

  3. If it weren't for small things like this, toki pona would lose its charm. toki pona was not designed to be flawless and perfect and it was not designed to fit perfectly into a grid. Things like the ti -> si rule are what make toki pona feel naturalistic.

  4. I think it's cute that you think I'm attracted to women. But also modifiers go after the words they modify so it wouldn't be "ala jan meli" anyway

  5. sina ken ike tawa jan lon tenpo ni taso: sina ike tawa jan ale. ni anu seme. ante la toki ni li ike tawa mi. o kama pona e nasin sina.

  6. i uh. “o kama ala” is “don’t come in” basically, “o tawa ala” is “don’t go in” basically. this story is. quite the story;;

  7. no, kala as a head noun is accurate because a manatee is an aquatic animal

  8. soweli doesn't refer to all mammals, I am filled with despair

  9. I guess short answer is no, I genuinely don't know where to *begin* if I wanted to explain why. *what.*

  10. no. we have enough speakers and you could learn something else instead

  11. I also learned it in about five days. I personally use it as a meditation language and to stop spiraling thoughts.

  12. a sina ni la sina wawa ni: sina sona e toki mi. anu seme.

  13. soweli is used to describe land mammals. it isn’t used to describe aquatic mammals.

  14. mi pilin e ni: mi pilin ike tan toki mi lon tomo ni. pini la mi wile taso kama sona e ijo. taso, toki mi li kepeken nasin ike. nasin ni li ike tawa mi. mi wile ala kepeken nasin ni, taso ken la nasin li lon.

  15. ona li awen kepeken anu seme? pilin mi la tenpo poka la ona li kepeken ala mute a ona. register nanpa tu wan en register nanpa tu li sama ala tan ni: jan li kepeken nasin ante tawa kama kepeken. lukin la ona li sama lili, taso ante li lon tan li lon ala kepeken.

  16. lipu Sasi is better because sh -> si at the end of syllables/words

  17. this is all the first layer lol. except the ma pona thing which isn’t really something ppl off this subreddit care about at all

  18. i genuinely love your spelling style. also, this is the first syllabic script i’ve seen here that isn’t an alphabet playing dress up so good on you

  19. i for one am not a fan of the whole “toki pona country” project

  20. i can’t understand this, i’d recommend reviewing the grammar. looks like you took english and replaced all the english words with toki pona words, that’s not really how toki pona works

  21. i’m loaning from languages that aren’t english tho so most signs point to Melatonin

  22. YOU MAY/ARE ENCOURAGED TO share your responses here in the comments or in any other toki pona space! You may also have semantic debates. lol.

  23. sitelen pona and sitelen sitelen are the only good ones i’ve come across that are used at all. sitelen ko is fun. i don’t like sitelen telo.

  24. i kinda like this idea from the perspective of making a conlang but unfortunately for you it isn’t a thing in the language, the language has already been conlanged, and it won’t be understood. “nanpa wan” is understood as a superlative though and is used in pu
