Mark Pagel: How language transformed humanity
Esperanto is not indoeuropean, the mayority of the roots of the words are from european languages but the grammar is different. It's easier to learn for speakers of romance languages, but also is the easiest language to learn for asians. Esperanto, a western language? http://claudepiron.free.fr/articlesenanglais/westernlanguage.htm Esperanto: european or asiatic language? http://claudepiron.free.fr/articlesenanglais/europeanorasiatic.htm Doesn't have the cultural baggage?? Some argue that Esperanto has too much cultural baggage! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esperanto_culture So nuance would be lost? Nop! Esperanto is one of the most expressive languages ‚Äč‚Äčthat exist. Does this depend on early learning? Nop! See: http://www.fluentin3months.com/adult-learner-research/
