lonsi is a joke word used in the ma pona pi toki pona community. It has no set meaning.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The earliest mention of the current word lonsi was in 2023, although there were previous mentions of lonsi likely unrelated to the current word.[1] It may have originated as a typo of the word tonsi, or a portmateau between it and lon (as in an interjection meaning "true! I agree!"). The word spread through repeated mention of it in the #kama-pona and #toki-pona channels, mainly by monsuta Kijana and (a)kasi Aliki.
