Unlic the tung itself, this staffrow is knotty and manifold so as to let the writer slow dune and umbecast the sway of tung. This unlinewise staffrow has two ways to spell words: one staff for eac word and one staff for eac staffay.


Toki Pona has abute 120-137+ words. Eac word has sundry meanings so as to make up for the small wordhoard. Hir meanings greatly hinge on hwat is being talked abute. To talk abute knottier things, words must be fayed.


ala (none), wan (one), tu (two), mute (many), ale/ali (all) are words that can be brooked to spell ute rimes. Rimes greater than two are naugt but said as mute.

Another way to tell is by eking rimes. A bisen is tu tu (four).

A sidekir busked by Lang's book is to brook luka (fife), mute (twenty), and ale/ali (hundred).
