toki! mi kama sona e toki pona. taso mi wile toki e toki kama sona. [20 Aug 2009|11:20pm]

First of all, is "toki sona kama jo" ('communication getting knowledge') the right term for "question"? And how would you say "first of all"? (I just seriously started learning toki pona the other day.)

OK, now I'm going to try this next part in both languages, then with my suggestion. Corrections are greatly appreciated.

In English:

I know portmanteaus are forbidden in toki pona, but what about connecting compound terms (noun-adj or verb-adv, not anything with prepositions, except maybe at the beginning) with apostrophes, like "jan'pona'mi"? It won't solve all the problems with ambiguous syntax, but I think that it would help while presenting minimal trouble to anyone not familiar with it.

lon toki pona:

mi sona e toki poka ike li ken ala. taso sina ken ala ken pana poka e toki poka (toki nimi en toki nimi ante anu toki pali en toki pali ante, ijo ala kepeken toki pini. taso ken lon kama) kepeken sitelin sewi lili, sama « jan'pona'mi »*? ijo li pona ala e ike ali lon toki ike. taso mi pilin e ijo li wile pona lili li pana e pakala lili lili tawa jan sona ala.

lon toki'pona kepeken ante'mi:

mi sona e toki'pona'ike li ken'ala. taso sina ken'ala'ken pana'poka e toki'poka (toki'nimi en toki'nimi'ante anu toki'pali en toki'pali'ante, ijo'ala kepeken toki'pini. taso ken lon kama) kepeken sitelin'sewi'lili, sama « jan'pona'mi »*? ijo li pona'ala e ike'ali lon toki'ike. taso mi pilin e ijo li wile'pona'lili li pana e pakala'lili'lili tawa jan sona'ala**.

* mi jan Mewika. taso sitelin Guillemets li pona tawa mi.
** o lukin lon nasin e ni mi tu e « jan » en « sona ala » kepeken ala*** « pi ».
*** pona ala pona « kepeken'ala »?


P.S.: If the apostrophes are too small, maybe dashes (pakala-lili-lili) or underscores (ken_ala_ken)?

learning toki pona [02 Aug 2009|11:03am]

mi wile kama sona e toki pona.

That's my first attempt at a sentence in toki pona. I am going to try to learn more, but without any materials, I think I am left to just struggling along. However, I was wondering if there were any way to talk about technical things like ... computer hardware and software? Or even linguistics? I know that more often than not these things are simply agreed upon aka- we decide to call this this, and in the case of toki pona, we decide that this will be said with this compound or phrase and so it is.
