I finally took the time to release the emoji set we're using here on Merveilles, you can find it here: git.sr.ht/~lectronice/sitelen- (though you could already grab them as remote emoji from within your admin panel, I think.)

I love how you can instantly understand a glyph you've never seen before if you're used to the sitelen pona logic.

I didn't know the word "kapesi". It looks like this: :kapesi:

It means "brown". In Toki Pona, the glyph for color is :kule: and the glyph for earth is :ma:

The kapesi glyph combines both. It's literally "color of the earth".

Similarly, purple is :unu:

It's the "color of celestial bodies". A bit more far-stretched, but still valid, and quite poetic.

"The racoon and the rat order a purple pizza on the internet."

(this is a test, we now have 150 glyphs, including all words with a ku frequency index of 2 or higher)

Sorting the most common glyphs for further adjustments before emoji export.

This is basically the linja sike font with a few almost invisible tweaks. Maybe I'll simplify some glyphs for readability's sake, in the spirit of sitelen pona pona. I still have some tests to do.

Also, it took me a while to understand the ku glyph (7th on the bottom line), but once you get it, it's pretty obvious and smart.

I’ve received my copy of the new dictionary. It’s huge! Pictured here with the first book for comparison, it contains loads of helpful definitions.

I haven’t found time to dive into it yet, but my first impression is that it will be very useful to anyone interested in the language, though not mandatory for beginners. Besides the dictionary part and the new words, it brings a few interesting corrections and precisions regarding the first book. Now, I have to update my own dictionary…
