Mi verkis du rebatojn:

(1)

About 1000 projects for an international planned language have already

been published (see Dulicenko, “Mezdunarodnye vspomogatel’nye

jazyki”, Tallinn, 1990). Rather than invent yet another (“Planning an

artificial common language”, The European, 23-29 Sep), would it not be

more sensible to promote wider use of an international planned language

that already works? No such language has had anything like the success

of Esperanto (millions of speakers, rich original literature, etc), but

it has taken Esperanto 107 years to get where it is now. Why start

again from scratch? The problems are political, not linguistic.

(2)

If Esperanto, with millions of speakers, a rich literature (original

and translated) and the support of UNESCO and some of the world’s

foremost intellectuals, such as Umberto Eco, is to be branded a

“failed attempt” (“Planning an artificial common language”, The

European, 23-29 Sep), I dread to think what epithets history will apply

to “Euro”!

Mi intencas hodia^u faksi a^u paperpo^sti la duan. Se iu volas uzi la

unuan, petu al mi.
