About Tokizin Tokizin is a intermediate version of  Toki Pona

Commonly used compounds have become grammaticalized to a certain extent. madomo "town or village" from ma tomo, magasi "forest" from ma kasi.

Vowel hiatus is resolved by inserting a /j/

Reduplication is used for variety and reciprocity. toki "speak" becomes tokidoki "conversation", ante "different" becomes antante "various".

In these compounds and reduplication, the initial consonant of the non-initial word may become voiced.

Prepositions have been combined with other words to create more complex meanings. lonsewi "above", tawasike "(go) around"

The preverb kama is used for both causative and reflexive meaning. lukin "to see" becomes kamalukin "to appear". It is used to mean "to become" something. lili "small" becomes kamalili "to shrink".
