*Notes on lipu pu


Toki Pona is a human language I invented in 2001. It was my attempt to understand the meaning of life in 120 words. There are now thousands of speakers and 137 essential words. In 2022, ISO 639-3 adopted the code "tok" for Toki Pona, which it categorized as a world language. Toki Pona is among the most popular conlangs online.

Read about it in NY Times, Gizmodo, Radio-Canada, Business Insider, The Guardian, Wikipedia, TV Tropes, The Globe and Mail, The New Yorker, ساسة بوست. More...
