Discussion about animals (creative name)[edit | edit source]

right now, I've added a lot more information to the nonstandard words as I intend to keep them there instead of having a whole dedicated article to them, which would be quite short anyway

the word sutopatikuna however, I created it before this article, and now I'm not sure whether to keep it or not. unless someone else comes around and adds more information about it, for example mentions of it in literature (I rememeber seeing it in lipu tenpo, but there's probably more that maybe kapesi Pake has done), I personally think it should be deleted and redirected here

regarding poni, it was coined by User:.hecko so hiiiii can you explain like, why? SnpoSuwan (talk) 18:51, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

my official excuse is that mlp ponies (who are the sole intended semantic space) say things like "everypony"
but also i had coined that word 24 days after getting into toki pona .hecko (talk) 18:59, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
,,huh that sure is a lot of animal words
honestly i don't think this many of them should be listed in a mainspace article? i don't think half the isa series was ever used, even by me)
though i guess if it's to be a complete replacement for the quote bot then they'd have to be present somewhere .hecko (talk) 15:54, 25 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
that was my thought too, User:Jan Ke Tami added most of these. I don't know what to do with them, because most of these are obscure and not notable, I say to move them. SnpoSuwan (talk) 17:48, 25 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh yeah, reasonable. So, to explain my process: misa and kisa were already in there, so I decided to add all the other -isa words in too - misa seemed appropriately obscure, but kisa is even rarer than that ime. The rest of the things I added because they're in fonts, and then I had 2 dog words... So not the best way to add to an article =D Jan Ke Tami (talk) 21:55, 25 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

silapa and tasun[edit | edit source]

these two words of course refer to animals, but they are not usually used in that way. instead they are joke words for font makers, would it be good to move them to a separate article together? SnpoSuwan (talk) 20:47, 11 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
