nasin nanpa likujo

From sona pona, the Toki Pona wiki

Caution: The subject of this article is just for fun. It is not meant or recommended for serious use.

nasin nanpa likujo is a number system created by jan Osuka based on the songs "likujo" and "luka tu wan" by jan Usawi. It uses lyrics of the songs to represent numbers, starting with wan meaning 1 from "likujo", and ending with e ale mi meaning 124 from "luka tu wan". It can also indicate a few nonpositive numbers using lyrics before the first chorus of "likujo", starting with nanpa wan la kala ike en monsuta for −9 and ending with tenpo ale la mi toki suli e ijo pi olin mi for 0.

An unfortunate consequence of using song lyrics is that the lyrics in the chorus have multiple meanings. For example, wan could be 1, 34, 42, 52, or 62. However, tokiponists are already used to dealing with context (the song luka tu wan itself makes use of Toki Pona's ambiguity in its title), and so this number system is perfect for Toki Pona.
