Weird to find so many #tokipona enthusiasts on Mastodon! Weird and nice! I hadn't paid attention to tp for a while, since I'd gotten into #esperanto . But I'd started looking back at it because I was starting to mess with Anki and a micro-vocab-language was clearly an easy target for memorization software.

Something I doodled today. I'm not 100% sold on the "l" being a figure 8. But I'm pretty happy with the rest.
At first I thought the vowels were too formulaic (they refer to spots on a vowel chart) but when I tried to come up with other options I didn't find any better ones.
This is my first conscript if you don't count creating variations of Elianscript.
@edheil for example mentioning the mistaken "li" I put in a recent post twice

pu la, Sonja gives the rules for Tokiponizing foreign words, and then breaks them when she suggests "Epawam Linkan" for Abraham Lincoln. (It would have to be "Epawan" or "Epawama" or something, final "m"s are impermissible. #tokipona Doh!
I like jewels and skulls and swords and sorceries and dice
