A european language?

Post Jehan I on Sat 1 Jul - 22:40

Are you in favor of the creation of a simple european language?

The goal would be to have a lingua franca esy to learn by everyone and who would be a symbol of the unity of european people. The language wouldn't have for goal to replace the traditional language of europe, but just to make the commnication easyer.


As many of you have english as mother toungue, I assume you will say English is already here for that.
But the use of english include a kind of inegality. It must be a neutral language.

Probably technology will be faster an easier to implement that making entire populations to learn another language.

I understand the non-English point of view - something neutral. It could work for the future generation who are now at school. Was that not the idea of Esperanto? I've never tried it.

We tried it (Serbo-Croatian) and it backfired badly eventually.

Nowadays you have obsessively hilarious behavior on part of Croats, Montenegrins and Bosniaks trying to exemplify the differences between what is basically the same language, while we are still in a predicament over whether and when to use Cyrillic or Latin alphabet (Latin became predominant during 2nd Yugoslavia as a sort of a compromise on our part, in cordial relations, and it remains that way in Bosnia and Herzegovina to this day, while Serbian Cyrilic alphabet is being propagandized as "the aggressor alphabet" in Croatia, and signs on Cyrillic are being painted over in Federation of B&H).

I'm rather fine with English being lingua franca of the modern world.They've vested their interests into this development, and I can only salute them.

To me there's nothing more ridiculous than duty nationalists complaining how "our children are learning the language of the evil neo-colonial British Empire", while we have a case of a Bosniaks in Serbia on court demanding that every document be translated from Serbian into Bosnian language, and eventually the case stands long enough for it to go cold because neither side wants to budge.

That reminds me of something my friend showed me when he was in Sarajevo. They basically wrote the same thing three times lol
