Translations:Three-vowel system/10/en

From sona pona, the Toki Pona wiki

In the set of 120 main words taught in Toki Pona: The Language of Good, there are no minimal pairs between /e~i/ or between /o~u/. For a time, this led the phonology to be described as practically a three-vowel system. However, Toki Pona Dictionary validated the popularly used word kin, which would conflict with ken, and introduced the word ku which would conflict with ko.
