Esperanto

Esperanto, introduced in 1887, is a language designed to contain none of the “linguistic overhead” of national languages (absolutely no irregularities, no conjugation of verbs, no declension of nouns, no grammatical gender, and no inflection). Its grammar falls within the bounds of sixteen short rules, so a speaker of a European language can learn to read Esperanto in three to six months. Others may take a only little longer. A free Esperanto course is available through the Internet.
