The Esperanto Movement
CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE SOCIOLOGY OF LANGUAGE brings to students, researchers and practitioners in all of the social and language-related sciences carefully selected book-length publications dealing with sociolinguistic theory, methods, findings and applications.
It approaches the study of language in society in its broadest sense, as a truly international and interdisciplinary field in which various approaches, theoretical and empirical, supplement and complement each other.
The series invites the attention of linguists, language teachers of all interests, sociologists, political scientists, anthropologists, historians etc. to the development of the sociology of language.

I'm a Portuguese guy who lives and works in France. I'm actually learning Esperanto by my own, and it reveals surprisingly easy to speak, read and write. It's crazy like France did not want to Esperanto becomes the universal language... Now isn't French nor Esperanto. What a waste! Now, I know why french did not see movies or series in english. They put a french voice on the original voice. And I know why I don't understand anything when they speak english. No one can speak english with an accent... No one. Whata waste.
