Frequently asked questions
Why do we need a constructed international language when there is English?
We think that an international language should be neutral, which means it should not give any unfair advantage to any participant of communication from the onset. We believe in democracy and equality. A common and neutral international language will help to make nations closer, by keeping them equal.
A language without history, culture and roots cannot exist, so your your efforts are in vain. What do you say to this?
This remark is relevant in relation to a priori languages, i.e. ones that are constructed arbitrarily from a blank sheet, on the basis of logic. But in relation to a posteriori languages, i.e. based on natural ones, we do not agree. A successful example of such language rooted in European tongues, with its subculture, is Esperanto. We have also adopted the a posteriori way. The language we are creating has roots in all major languages of the world. And the ideology (a basis for specific subculture) is the historically predestined ideal of human unity. We believe that the internationalization of languages will go on and a universal language will necessarily arise.
If the internationalization of languages is inevitable and a universal language will necessarily emerge, why bother and create it? The languages will merge when the time comes.
They hardly will, as every language is a stable system, a whole. Languages will continue to internatinalize, but will not be able to change grammatically in a significant way. What is needed is a simple grammatical scheme allowing the use of international vocabulary without serious deformations. LdP is being created in such as way that it can incorporate almost any word without serious deformation.
May one suggest words from languages other than the ten you have mentioned?
Certainly. LdP already includes words from other languages: Persian, Finnish, Turkish, Japanese, Swedish. LdP seeks to live up to its name — the Language of the Planet.
