After poking around a bit more, it looks like the 61 primitives in NSM correspond to 41 words in Toki Pona; some of the overlap comes from merging ideas such as "like" and "want", but the biggest change is use of compound phrases for things like places and times -- using "small time" for "brief" and "near me" for "here".
ala - NOT ali - ALL anpa - BELOW ante - OTHER ijo - SOMETHING/THING ike - BAD insa - INSIDE jan - PEOPLE/PERSON; SOMEONE (jan wan) jo - HAVE kama - HAPPEN; AFTER (kama la) ken - CAN; MAYBE; IF (ken la) kute - HEAR lili - SMALL, SOME lon - THERE IS, TRUE luka - PART OF lukin - SEE ma - WHERE/PLACE (or tomo for indoor places) mi - I moli - DIE mute - MANY/MUCH, MORE, VERY ni - THIS nimi - WORD pali - DO, LIVE pilin - FEEL, THINK pini - BEFORE poka - NEAR; SIDE; TOUCH; HERE (poka mi); FAR (poka mi ala) pona - GOOD sama - THE SAME, KIND OF sewi - ABOVE sijelo - BODY sina - YOU sona - KNOW suli - BIG; LONG tan - BECAUSE tawa - MOVE tenpo - WHEN/TIME; A LONG TIME (tenpo suli); FOR SOME TIME (tenpo wa +n); MOMENT (tenpo lili ni); NOW (tenpo ni); A SHORT TIME (tenpo +lili) toki - SAY tu - TWO wan - ONE wile - LIKE; WANT
