The Metacommunicative Ideology of Esperanto: Evidence from Japan and Korea.
Kimura, Goro Christoph
Language Problems & Language Planning, v27 n1 p71-83 Spr 2003
Explores whether a particular humanistic ideology is imminent in Esperanto on the basis of evidence drawn from discussions in Esperanto between Japanese and Koreans about reconciliation between their respective countries. Concludes that, while the convictions of the language's initiative are not universally shared among Esperanto speakers, one may legitimately speak of a common metacommunicative ideology that valorizes dialogue among ordinary people form different linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
