Esperanto is an artificial language designed to serve internationally as an auxiliary means of communication among speakers of different languages.
It is created by Ludwig Lejzer Zamenhof,a Polish-Jewish doctor specialized in eyediseases.
Esperanto was first presented in 1887.
An international movement was launched to promote its use.
Despite arguments and disagreements,the movement has continued to flourish and has members in more than 80 countries.
Esperantois used internationally across language boundaries by at least 1 million people,particularly in specialized fields.
It is used in personal contacts,on radio broadcasts,and in a number of publications as well as in translations of both modern works and classics.
Its popularity has spread from Europe,both east and west, to such countries as Brazil and Japan.
It is,however,in China that Esperanto has had its greatest impact.
It is taught in universities and used in many translations,often in scientific or technological works.
El Popola Cinio,which means From People's China,is a monthly magazine in Esperanto,and is read worldwide.
Radio Beijing's Esperanto program is the most popular program in Esperanto in the world。
Esperanto's vocabulary is drawn primarily from Latin,the Romance languages,English,and German.
Spelling is completely regular.
A simple and consistent set of endings indicates grammatical functions of words.
Thus,for example,every noun ends in o,every adjective in a,and the basic form of every verb in i.
Esperanto also has a highly productive system of constructing new words from old ones.
