The name sona as well as the names of some hyphæ are in toki pona.


toki pona ("language of good") is a conlang invented by Sonja Lang in 2001 as a way to express thoughts during her depression episodes. The language contains only 137 words and is known for its very laconic grammar.

Note that I do not speak toki pona, yet I find the idea of the language fantastic, and I am quite fascinated with how laconic it is.
