Toki Pona-Fun and Cute

Return to top of page
Teacher: Jacob Schwartz
Year: 2002 (fall)
Program: Splash
Category: Liberal Arts

Toki Pona is a "maximally minimal" language. It was constructed with only 120 words and with only the simplest rules to pronounce sounds. Toki Pona tries to follow the Taoist philosophy that "simple is good." In order to lead a simple life, one needs a simple language; or perhaps a simple language will lead to a simpler life. Whether you accept the philosophy or not, Toki Pona is fun to speak.
