Last month, I set out to collect all of the unique words in the toki pona language, including new words from ku and a few common combination words, with thorough definitions tied to each word into one master list. This deck is compiled from the dictionary section in pu merged with 2 other dictionaries I found online:
I also pulled a couple definitions from jan Misali’s video on ku: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3p4-GFXrkM
Finally, the master list itself is available in text format here if you’re interested in that instead of the shared Anki deck:
Note that the list and deck do not include country names and other proper nouns that had examples given in pu and ku, only the distinct toki pona words.
(I tried posting this the other day, but the original flashcards service I was using, Flashcards.io, stopped working for sharing decks, so I figured it was high time I just used the correct software—it was much easier than I expected!)
Toki Pona is a philosophical artistic constructed language known for its small vocabulary. It was created by Canadian linguist and translator Sonja Lang for the purpose of simplifying thoughts and communication. It was first published online in 2001 as a draft, and later in complete form in the book Toki Pona: The Language of Good in 2014. A small community of speakers developed in the early 2000s. While activity mostly takes place online in chat rooms, on social media, and in other groups, there were a few organized in-person meetings during the 2000s and 2010s.
