There is a constructed language called "toki pona" and it has exactly 120 words. One of the scripts it has called "sitelen pona". And I need to use it for documents. Here is the all glyphs it has: enter image description here

a symbol for every word. Is there a way to use it without fonts?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! If you have a font, you can use it with XeLaTeX. There should be some answers in this forum about how to use fonts with XeLaTeX in general. – Jasper Habicht Mar 23 at 15:11
  • Welcome to TeX.SE. How do you want to enter the symbols in your code? Do you want some kind of mapping from Latin/English letters to these symbols? Or you want to type commands like \first \second etc? Or you want to type it directly using a custom font? – Marijn Mar 23 at 15:12

    you can cut that image (or a higher resolution one) in 120 single images and then create a macro to \incluedrapghics them by number, or name, or whatever mnemonic you have. Or if you're really very bored you can create each one of them with a small TikZ picture... ;-) – Rmano Mar 23 at 15:28

    In that case you should indeed make 120 images and define 120 macros, for example \def\akesi{\includegraphics{akesi}} \def\ala{\includegraphics{ala}} etc for akesi.png, ala.png and so on. But using a font seems easier, there are fonts at github.com/toki-pona/ilo-pi-sitelen-pona/tree/master/client/… for example. – Marijn Mar 23 at 15:43
