Summary

Anyone who has ever traveled knows the challenge of language barriers. These are caused by the different languages and dialects across the world. Perhaps the solution to those barriers lies within this book.
 
This is an entry-level text for learning the language of Esperanto. Unlike nearly every other language on Earth, Esperanto is a constructed language, created by Dr. L. L. Zamenhoej in the late 19th century. This book contains not only the vocabulary, mechanics, grammar, and syntax of Esperanto, but also the hopes and dreams of Dr. Zamenhoej. His goal was to create an easy to understand language that the whole world could learn to tear down an ancient barrier that had kept people apart. As George Soros put it — “Esperanto was a very useful language, because wherever you went, you found someone to speak with.”
 
After using this book, the dedicated student will be able to read, speak, and write in Esperanto. The text is divided into three sections, each working towards one of the aforementioned goals, but they can be worked on in any order and still be equally effective. By the conclusion of study, the reader will be able to use a vocabulary of roughly 800 words to effectively correspond in Esperanto.
 
All Left of Brain books have been proofread and typeset by real humans. This book does NOT contain scanned or computer generated OCR text.

    Splendiferous Speech - How Early...

    What does it mean to talk like an American? According to John Russell Bartlett's 1848 Dictionary of Americanisms, it means indulging in outlandish slang — splendiferous, scrumptious, higgeldy piggedly — and free-and-easy word creation — demoralize, lengthy, gerrymander. American English is more than just vocabulary, though. It's a picturesque way of talking that includes expressions like go the whole hog, and the wild boasts of frontiersman Davy Crockett, who claimed to be "half horse, half alligator, and a touch of the airthquake."Splendiferous Speech explores the main sources of the American vernacular — the expanding western frontier, the bumptious world of politics, and the sensation-filled pages of popular 19th-century newspapers. It's a process that started with the earliest English colonists (first word adoption — the Algonquian raccoon) and is still going strong today. Author Rosemarie Ostler takes listeners along on the journey as Americans learn to declare linguistic independence and embrace their own brand of speech. For anyone who wonders how we got from the English of King James to the slang of the Internet, it's an exhilarating ride.
