toki pona, languages
It's so weird and cool how using the glyphs actually improves my reading comprehension
As an English speaker, noun-adjective feels super unintuitive to me, and when I first started writing I was constantly putting the adjective before the noun without realizing it. But when I look at the glyphs I immediately recognize when I make the mistake. I'm like "oh, nimi is the subject, it's the most important thing, of course it comes before luka luka"
I think it's not unreasonable to suggest that learning toki pona might stretch out my brain-putty and give my language acquisition centers enough of a workout to make it easier to learn a natural language later. I'm excited
