Esperanto is a language that was developed in 1887 by Ludwik Zamenhof. He meant it to be an easy-to-learn language that could become the worlds' second language, a standard by which all people could communicate. Sort of a metric system for language.
Zamenhof published his Fundamento de Esperanto in 1905, which lays down the basic principles of the language's structure and formation.
Esperanto is a moderately successful artificial language, although it is the most highly regarded. The number of Esperanto speakers is estimated at more than 2 million. The Universala Esperanto-Asocio (founded in 1908) has members in 83 countries, and there are 50 national Esperanto associations that use Esperanto. The World Esperanto Congress convenes annually, and over 100 periodicals are published in the language. More than 30,000 books have been published in Esperanto.
