Abstract

Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international auxillary language in the world. Initiated by Ludwik Lazarz Zamenhof (1859-1917), it was designed as a universal second language that is easy to learn, and is not the cultural property of any linguistic or ethnic community. In 1887, Zamenhof published (in Russian) his International Language: Foreword and Complete Textbook (Zamenhof, 2006) under the pseudonym "Doktoro Esperanto" (Doctor One-who-hopes), from which the name of the language derives.
