The Esperanto Community: A Quasi-ethnic Linguistic Minority?
Fettes, Mark
Language Problems and Language Planning, v20 n1 p53-59 Spr 1996
Examines the sociology of the Esperanto community in the context of a review of 10 surveys. Active speakers reveal that Esperanto functions primarily as a means of informal oral communication and of semiformal written communication. Most speakers do not expect a wider use of this planned language in the short term. (11 references) (Author/CK)
