“Esperanto (/ˌɛspəˈræntoʊ/ or /-ˈrɑː-/;[5][6] [espeˈranto] About this sound listen (help·info)) is a constructed international auxiliary language. It is the most widely spoken constructed language in the world.[7] The Polish-Jewish ophthalmologist L. L. Zamenhof published the first book detailing Esperanto, Unua Libro, on 26 July 1887. The name of Esperanto derives from Doktoro Esperanto (“Esperanto” translates as “one who hopes”), the pseudonym under which Zamenhof published Unua Libro”. Wikipedia at:

      Thank you very much. It is good that you think in that way as no man is a prophet in his own land. I consider your way to speak with birds through your camera lens as a remarkable skill. I guess you have always liked them.
      Take care and have a nice Sunday 🙂


  7. Love the drawing so evocative. It would be great if we did all speak a single language but at the same time there is magic and joy in learning other people’s languages and hearing them spoken. I speak Spanish and French as well as English and love hearing Spanish and French.

      Thank you for commenting. One equal language for all the people of the world didn’t have to mean that the national languages are under a ban. At the moment English is the Lingua Franca but it leaves others than German and Romance languages speakers in the shadow. Esperanto is not much better choice because its vocabulary comes from German and Romance languages. The new artificial language is so far-fetched that it would be easier to make the digital translators better than they are today.
      Have a nice weekend 🙂
