Hi, I wrote this argument for practising my writing and logic. Could you please proofread or comment on this argument of mine for me? Thank you very much.
Some people think that a new language should be invented for people from different countries to use for the international communication. To what extent do you think its advantages far outweigh its disadvantages?
Why is it good to invent a new language?
Accompanying the globalisation, such as economics, politics, sciences, cultures, etc., more and more people from different countries or regions have to communicate with each other, but the different languages have become the big obstacle for communication. Therefore, some people think a new language should be invented for the people who speak different languages. I’d like to take Esperanto, the most well-known artificial language, as an example to illustrate how the advantages of an artifical language far outweigh its disvantages.
First, Esperanto has very easy grammars and pronunication rules. There're numerous natural languages in the world, from European languages, e.g. German, French, Spanish to Asian languages. Most of natural languages are rather hard to learn for non-speakers because of very complex grammars or irregular pronunications. Even though English, which is considered as a relatively easy language among the other European languages, it still has irregular forms of verbs, nouns, and irregular pronunciations. On the contrary, Espearanto is invented to avoid the complex grammar and irregular forms of nouns or verbs. Therefore, the advantage of this will help people from different countries to save time to learn it quick and realise to communicate with international people by their own self without the the aid of any translators or interpretors.
Second, the artifical language, like Esperanto, is neutral for all people of different nations in the world. Every one is equal when we speak in it. It is good to protect the rights of speakers of the minor natural languages and against any hegemonism of languages.
Third, Esperanto, though invented by Polish linguist Zamenhof, has been developing. It is estimated that there’re 2 million speakers from all over the world so far. Though some people argue that the invented new languages lack the rich cultural background, Esperanto has a unique culture of the language created by these Esperanto lovers. I believe this easy-learned language will have more influence along with more and more learners join into them.
In a nutshell, the practice of the invented language has proved itself that there the advantages of a new language overweigh its disvantages, so it is very necessary to invent a new language for people to meet the increasing need of the international communication.
