universal language for the our world
Mankind has always been concerned with the lack of universal language on earth. For the first time this problem comes up in the lines of the Bible devoted to the construction of the tower of Babel where the lack of a common language, considered as a punishment of the people for their wayward ways.
Later, the Greek philosopher Plato expressed his thoughts on this issue: the Gods have favored mankind, bestowing him a common language.
In the beginning of our era, a famous physician, writer and scholar of the Roman Empire Claudius Galen (Galenus), invented the system of signs for communication between people of different countries and peoples, unfortunately the manuscripts have not survived to the present day.
Further more, Sheikh Mohieddin; as historians assume interlinguistica, conceived of a system of international megluminova language, unfortunately, is also lost.
Catalan philosopher Raymond Llull (Lull) in the essay "the Universal art" ("Ars Generalis"), has developed a system of written symbols for international communication. Even the well-known Nostradamus suggested the possibility of creating a conditional language for international communication. Spanish theologian, philosopher and pedagogue Juan Luis Vives (1492 -1540) in treatise "De Disciplines", wrote: "It would be happiness, if there was a single language that could be used by all peoples. Die Latin, and then there will be turmoil in all the Sciences, the threat of alienation between people"
Indeed, In the middle of the XVII century, the Latin began to cast out from the scientific institutions, and then from the scientific literature, all Sciences came to a kind of linguistic confusion - pavilonis originated the alienation between scientists of all countries, are not able between them to communicate directly.
But scientists, philosophers had not lost hope of creating a universal language: Tommaso Campanella, the author of "City of the Sun", Francis bacon, Herman Hugo, rené Descartes, Thomas Urquhart, John Wilkins, Wilhelm Leibniz, and including Isaac Newton, they all tried to create a language understandable to all.
The world has changed, the wheel of history spun faster and faster, discovery of America, the creation of colonies, the industrial revolution, man has conquered the planet, virtually no blind spots on the ground. The world became more and more appeared languages, but the universal language has not emerged.
Novial languages , Volapuk, Interlingue, neo, and even Esperanto (the most popular artificial language in the world), and did not become universal languages .
Why this is so, let's see.
The main problem in language learning, the need for memorizing words, simplifying the language not the main thing, the main thing is vocabulary and on this basis - a simple grammar..
How to solve this problem and make the language memorable?
Vision gives us 80% of information about the world, people are much more faster and remembers what he saw than what he heard or read, in the human brain from delayed information about an object, action, phenomenon. Then, the person compares what he saw with what he remembered, the result of this comparison he concludes that the subject before him, what he looks like, etc.
The ability of man to analyze what he saw, finding similarities or differences, use designers, creating Ideograms and Pictograms to display objects, actions. For example, at the Olympic games, we see a schematic image of sports events and understand them, despite the fact that images are conditional. If they were not what the universal language, we would write the names of sports for people of more than two hundred countries in the world?
The conditional images based language of UNIVERS, take for example the smileys, :-), : -( they display the words: smile, sadness. We don't know how they sound and are written these words, for example, in the Japanese language, but we know exactly what this smile means, even if it was written for us Japanese, we remember him not making any effort. Smiley has become a universal word understood by all.
At the beginning of the 20th century, a universal visual language could be considered, cinema, silent films did not require translation: mimicry, gestures, direction made it clear to all.
And this is not an isolated case in the history of mankind: the Chinese characters, four thousand years, was a universal language of communication for the peoples of Indochina. Not knowing each other in oral communication, they understood each other with the help of Chinese writing based on the visual similarity of characters, objects and events.
Draw conclusions, a universal language should be:
2. Visually simple
3. Modern (words can be typed on a normal keyboard)
on these three principles and built UNIVERS.
one word - one language
