Grammar Question- so-called pi-predicates [03 Dec 2014|01:50pm]

janmate

O live journal. What accounts for your drop off in popularity?

pi-predicates.
The stuff after a li is usual an noun phrase, a verb phrase (transitive or intransitive) or a prepositional phrase. And then there is the pi-predicate. The pi-predicate doesn't act like a pi-chain in a noun phrase. It is a predicate that is a sort of transformation of li jo e.

Y li jo e X ==> X li pi Y

These are all examples from the community corpus

len ni li pi mi ala. tenpo ali la ma en ken en pona li pi sina. tenpo ale la ma la ken la nimi li pi sina. kili ni li pi mi. toki Epelanto li pi jan ali. tomo li pi mi insa ma tomo Kelejo, mi somo ma tomo. ilo ni li pi sina. ona li pi jan lawa pona.

What is unelegant about li pi is that to write a machine parser, I have to introduce a datastructure just for this, or treat li pi as a syntax error.

Also, afaik, pi predicates do not take direct objects. I'm not sure if they can be imperative, ilo o pi mi! but it's not hard to model them as such.

Where can I find a list of the 123 (118-125?) root words and English meanings?

I've googled and googled to no avail.

Thanks. (I'd write this in toki pona if I had the list.)
