International Communication and Esperanto.
Tonkin, Humphrey
The author discusses (1) the nature of communication, (2) sociological aspects of the communication problem, and (3) solutions to the language problem that have been tried. He believes that "there is a solution easier and more successful than multilingualism, and less discriminatory than the unilateral imposition of one national language for international contacts." He suggests Esperanto as "a logical way round inherently discriminatory multilingualism: for international communication everyone would learn a second language (Esperanto), different from his native language or the language of his state." The author discusses Esperanto itself, the ease with which it can be learned, and the extent to which it is presently used. (DO)
