1:
What is the World Language Process?
Go to Response #1
2:
Assuming a globally representative congress or committee could agree on an IAL, wouldn't it be an unwieldy compromise? Wouldn't a functionable language require the coherent vision that only an inspired individual could provide?
Go to Response #2
3:
Wouldn't each member of the international committee seek only that the IAL conformed as far as possible to their own language, in whose favour they were likely to be prejudiced, albeit unconsciously?
Go to Response #3
4:
Isn't English already the international auxiliary language for all practical purposes?
Go to Response #4
5:
Esperanto is a perfectly adequate IAL which only needs support. Esperanto's official adoption and consequent implementation through educational systems worldwide would be hastened if sites such as this promoted it.
Go to Response #5
6:
"East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet!" Kipling's sentiment remains as true today: cultures are essentially self-contained and will remain so; no more than the most basic IAL will ever be required.
Go to Response #6
7:
Shouldn't the international committee choose an entirely neutral language, equally easy or difficult for all nationalities?
Go to Response #7
8:
Would it be possible to guess what kind of IAL the international committee might select?
Go to Response #8
9:
Does the World Language Process have any additional preferences?
Go to Response #9
