What the heck is Bresenish and what is it doing on a tp site?
There have been a boatload of toki pona derivatives and toki pona inspired small languages. I decided to write one myself to try to deliver on some of the promises of the original description of toki pona in particular, a language that has features of interest to people with mood disorders, like depression. When the LA Times article came out, it said jan Sonja created tp during a bout of depression, hence my idea of a therapeutic conlang.
Here is my first stab at syntax: http://www.suburbandestiny.com/conlang/?p=567 And here is the draft lexicon http://www.suburbandestiny.com/conlang/?p=128 And I'm working on morphology

Friend,
I looked at your Blog. I think that I'm reasonably intelligent, but Tar Nation! I have no idea what all that talk about "Dative", "Nominative", "Accusative", "Genitive", "Vocative", etc mean. I do know a bit about Set Theory—not much, but some. "Is/~Is Not a member of the set of…" Is a big part of the second half of Symbolic Logic. I have Several Books on Symbolic Logic, but I never persevered long enough to get past the first half. Hmmmm… toki pona kinda reminds me of Polish Notation now that I think about it… Ever study Symbolic Logic using Polish Notation? I like it better than the Principia Notation. They used Principia Notation at Purdue—and I failed that one… Anyway, can you give a little bit of an idea what type Language you hope to make Bresenish?
