Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 This work is a collection of stories or books, so it may more accurately be considered multiple smaller works instead of one large literary work. (These entries are marked yellow in the table.)
  2. Approximate word count as of March 2024. Excludes verse numbers and English book/chapter headings.
  3. The release date of the jan lawa lili translation by Michael Fridman is unknown. Web archives show that it was added to the corpus at Tokipona.net some time before January 20th, 2013 ("Little Prince" chapters are listed in the dropdown menu of this page.), so the text was likely released in 2012 or earlier.
