Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed . international language. Its name derives from "Doktoro Esperanto" ("Es- peranto" translates as "one who hopes"), under which Dr. Ludwig Lazarus Za- menhof published the first book detailing Esperanto, the Unua Libro, on July 26, 1887. Zamenhof's goal was to create an easy-to-learn and politically neutral language that tanscends Dr. Norman Berdichevsky nationality and would fos- ter peace and international Understanding among people with different re- gional and/or national languages. Estimates of Esperanto speakers range from 100,000 to one mil- lion people. Esperanto has a notable presence in over a hundred countries. The first World Congress of Es= peranto was organized in France in 1905. Esperanto was recommended by the French Academy of Sci- ences in 1921. Esperanto was created in the early 1880s by Dr. Zamenhof, a Jewish ophthalmologist from Bialystok. After some 10 years of development, in which Zamenhof spent translating literature into Esperanto as well as writ- ing original prose and verse, the first book of Esperant o grammar was published in Warsaw in July 1887, according from Wikipedia.
