hopes) in esperanto; think esperanza in spanish and spero in latin.
there were a few complicatiosn in esperanto tho, which have been ironed
out in teh language "ido", which is basically esperanto with a few
changes. the problem i have with esperanto/ido is that it's not by any
means completely neutral. i mean, it's ok for european language
speakers (although it has much more romance than germanic or slavic),
but it puts them at quite an advantage over others. for this reason i
like the idea of the lojban (www.lojban.org) language, but i found the
lessons realy hard to follow, so i havn't learned it at all really.
