o nanpa[edit | edit source]

lipu nanpa o lon! There should be a separate article for nanpa, not only for things mentioned for the reason in the comment below, which I do not quite understand, but does it just mean like "edition", an ordinal in a list, but instead of a number it's any word?

if we wanna add usages like "nanpa pini" or even "nanpa jelo" it could justify making a separate page for nanpa

but as well, nanpa has more meanings as a content word than just "number", like computer programs. SnpoSuwan (talk) 13:41, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Other comments below:

unsure if [ilo nanpa is] too weird, ku lite has "count" at 4 but that's probably as a noun

to me it seems fine

would prefer a pu citation or other direct word of Sonja

people who have pu, please try to find it

should we mention nasin nanpa pona or is that too much like promoting? also should we do {{Nonstandard}}

in my opinion it shouldn't be mentioned alone, maybe in a list like nasin nanpa ali ike

regarding {{Nonstandard}}, if it stays like this, it's fineeee probably. SnpoSuwan (talk) 13:41, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

ilo nanpa la i'm unsure specifically about nanpa e
nasin nanpa pona la i mention it specifically because it's the only one i've seen used by more than one person, though it having a separate page in the category might be enough of a highlight .hecko (talk) 13:53, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
pu's example sentences only ever use nanpa as an ordinal marker.
Where are all these comments coming from btw?

Not a priority, because non-numeral ordinal nanpa is very non-standard. "nanpa pini" and "nanpa open" are more accepted though, and I'd guess it's kind of seen as numeral?
ilo nanpa and "count" (noun or not) aren't weird to me. Jan Ke Tami (talk) 12:04, 14 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
