toki! sina sona e toki pona anu seme?

Toki pona is a constructed language, like Esperanto or Klingon.
But, unlike those it's absolutely tiny! If you're keen you can be fluent enough to chat in just a few days.

It's a wonderfully comfy way to communicate, and it can be great fun too.
There's a very active community, so it's easy to get practice, and there's new music, podcasts and stories coming out all the time.

The whole essence is simplicity, reducing things down to the bare necessities and getting away from all the confusion of modern life.
Kinda like this place.

Do we have any other speakers here?
Does anyone else want to learn more?

I'll be hanging around here to find out!

Same here - I think I had heard of this language in passing, but never really looked into it until a couple hours ago. It kinda reminds me of Randall Munroe's Up-Goer Five, but as an entire language. Seems cool.
My only concern is that I'm not sure that I'd be able to use it enough to really get good at it. As far as I can tell, the biggest toki pona-speaking community seems to be on discord, which I don't use, and it doesn't seem like there's all that much media in the language to practice my understanding. Then again, who knows - maybe toki pona anime fandubs will become a thing soon or something.

This is a genius idea, genuinely. Some classic comedy anime would be incredible in toki pona. Would be down to work on this kind of project.

Typing gibberish to mean-spiritedly mock another language isn't something I'd say is in the spirit of this board. If you don't like this thread then you can just ignore it, you don't have to be an asshole.

It's a conlang sushi, it's not someone's native tongue.
It's a fun nerdy hobby for people, "another language" here is like someone goofing on klingon offending klingons ha.

There's quite a bit out there, but it's not the easiest to find on English google.
Here are the first few that come to mind:

utala.pona.la - regular short story contest

lipukule.org - blogs and random articles

kalama sin - podcast with guest speakers and random topics

reddit.com/r/mi_lon - memes and funposting

wikipesija.org - you can probably work this one out

linku.la - very complete dictionary of standard and 'slang' usage

Artists & groups releasing toki pona music:
jan usawi
kqa
pata powe
nardi
jan misali
lots more I've forgotten, all on either YouTube, Spotify or bandcamp.

There's also a whole toki pona taso video streaming site I've forgotten the name of

I'd throw in also that the language lends itself much better to conversation than prose.
Explaining anything complex in text gets either very wordy, or easy to misunderstand.
In conversation you can bounce back and forth checking each others understanding and get there much quicker.

Looks good, let's see if I've got it.

Reads like "What's happening today?" to me.

And in response

It may not be anyone's native tongue, but it is still a hobby for people, and there's no reason to be mean about it.
Honestly, I tend to get more pissed off than I probably should when people get all mocking and condescending about anything, even when it's something I don't personally care about. I realize I probably shouldn't let it get to me as much as I do, but it gets to me anyway. It also probably doesn't help that I was half-asleep and already in a grumpy mood when I made that comment.
Anyway, sorry for derailing this thread even further.

Just uh wondering, but was the thread inspo because of >>16384 or is
it just synchronicity kicking in?
>>16582
I think somebody made a fan translation of the first chapter of Girls Last Tour, so the fan translation inclination is there already, just nobody (or enough cooperation) with enough motivation for an anime yet
I'd be down to be part of one once I'm more fluent!
>>16605
With you on that one, didnt feel like any positive intent
But I do grok the one you're responding to too that it's not so serious
But I think that the chill vibe we have here is at least somehwat related to that we do take our chill vibe serious and react to somebody not getting the local way
Up to the person to take it as a reminder/guidance and not as a rebuke/conflict

Very good! Why are you learning toki pona?

I'm feeling well, but I slept little.

Today, I worked at the office. Tonight, me and a friend ate pizza.




probably mistakes in my response but hopefully you get the point

Nope! Totally unrelated.
I've actually been away for ages, but a random toki pona comment reminded me of this place, so I thought I'd drop by and share.

>>16607
Looks good!
I was going for how not why and plural friends in future tense, but that's me not being specific, your translation is fine.

I want to learn toki pona because it is fun and simple(?)

mi kama sona tan sitelen tawa pi Jan misali.
I learned from jan Misali's videos.

mi pini lukin e ona la, mi pu.
After I finished them, I read the official book.

sina wile kama sona la, lipu pu li pona tawa mi.
If you want to learn, the official book was good for me.

mi sona lili e toki Nijon. sitelen Kanji li mute suli ike.
I know a little Japanese. Kanji characters are very numerous and complex(?? would appreciate some clarification on how to interpret li mute suli ike).

taso, ona li musi.
But it is fun.

musi sina li musi seme?
Your game is what kind?

musi pi ilo nanpa anu seme?
Computer game?

mute suli ike to me means "too many", a big many that is bad .
Everything else is exactly what I meant.

I didn't get game from musi at first, I guess I never really see it used as a 'noun'. Instead it's usually kalama musi, sitelen musi, pali musi etc. Makes sense that just pure musi is a game though, I like that.
I really love finding out how different folks express things, especially when it shows a totally different way of thinking about something.

For all you furries and weirdos

There is a great community of tokipona on VR chat

Where you can learn with others and also practise speaking or associated objects and things etc
