Tokiponist

From sona pona, the Toki Pona wiki
(Redirected from jan pi toki pona)

A Tokiponist,[a] Tokiponian,[1][2][b] or, humorously, Tokiponer, is a speaker, proponent, or enthusiast of Toki Pona.

The term Tokiponist is based on the word Esperantist, the Esperanto equivalent. While some Tokiponists have similar goals to advocates of Esperanto, such as treating Toki Pona as a candidate for an international auxiliary language, the differences in language philosophy lead many Tokiponists to simply promote Toki Pona for art and personal use.
