Head dropping lists tenpo dropping as not head dropping. tenpo doesn't get dropped, it just looks like it at first glance. Jan Ke Tami (talk) 22:12, 28 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Keep. It could still be kept here until there is a better article to link to. The phrase tenpo dropping is very common, if it not right, then the article should instead clarify that. SnpoSuwan (talk) 22:42, 28 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm agreed with jan Ke Tami that this page doesn't need to be a self-standing page and that its content would do better as a section on another page. I see several good possibilities here.
  • Merge into tenpo. Why should this be its own page rather than a section of the main tenpo page? It refers to a special usage of that word and so should go in that article.
  • Merge into Time. On the other hand, given the list of tenpo... phrases in Time, maybe tenpo dropping should be mentioned there instead? It's a clear part of how time is expressed in Toki Pona.
  • Merge into Head dropping. This is probably a conceptual confusion on my part: is dropping tenpo in sike mute la mi pali the same thing as dropping ma in mi kulupu lon Win?

With these options, I agree more with Merge into tenpo. SnpoSuwan (talk) 21:05, 21 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
