Toki Pona was invented by Sonja Lang in 2001 and to quote "It was my attempt to understand the meaning of life in 120 words".
The words used here were taken from the official word list (with one or two additions), and are arranged into groups of as nouns, verbs (transitive and intransitive), modifiers, interjections and prepositions.
Corrections and suggestions are welcome.
Sonja Lang (née Elen Kisa) started developing Toki Pona as a way of simplifying her thoughts. It is a minimalist language with around 125 words.
