Writing systems

From sona pona, the Toki Pona wiki
(Redirected from nasin sitelen mute)

This is a non-exhaustive list of the writing systems created for Toki Pona.

The Latin script, sitelen pona, and sitelen sitelen are the three writing systems featured in Toki Pona: The Language of Good. They are also the best known and most widely understood. However, tinkerers often invent other writing systems for personal or aesthetic expression, data compression, compatibility with other natural-language writing systems, neographic experiments with the limited vocabulary, or simply for fun.
