toki!

Hello! Unlike Esperanto, Toki Pona is a constructed language that favors simplicity over clarity, and touts itself as "the language of good. The simple way of life."

By virtue of Toki Pona's extremely small vocabulary (about 120 words), and order-independent syntax, the language is good at talking about feelings and simple relationships, but not about the finer points of politics, semiconductor device fabrication, chemistry etc. Tokiponists believe this is exactly as it should be.

But hey, we are at the Chaos Communication Congress! So nobody prevents you from speaking about complicated things using one of the simplest languages in the world. Whether you accept the philosophy or not, Toki Pona is fun to speak. Give it a try!

You can learn Toki Pona in one month, so there is enough time to become a Tokiponist until 34C3! And to be honest, this conlang is so easy to learn – whether you'll like it or not, you won't regret spending this little time with it. People are reporting being able to write and read texts after about 30 hours of study. This is the least expensive language learning experiment I know of.

I'm looking forward to have und hear some conversations in Toki Pona at 34C3!

Learn

You don't necessarily need to obtain the official Toki Pona book from Sonja Lang, the linguist, who invented Toki Pona in 2001 in order to learn the language. I recommend the lessons from jan lope in English or German.
