I think that the rights of minority languages need protection.

The promulgation of English as the world's “lingua franca” is unethical and linguistically undemocratic. I say this as a native English speaker!

Unethical because communication should be for all and not only for an educational or political elite. That is how English is used internationally at the moment.

Undemocratic because minority languages are under attack worldwide due to the encroachment of majority ethnic languages. Even Mandarin Chinese is attempting to dominate as well. The long-term solution must be found and a non-national language, which places all ethnic languages on an equal footing is long overdue.

Dear Brian,

Thanks for your comment. I wrote that English is the "de facto" lingua franca. You seem to be concerned that the native English speakers have an advantage and propose Esperanto, which might be a solution. However, at the moment Esperanto is embraced by a small minority. If there are enough Esperanto speakers it would be a relevant language. I am afraid it is at the moment more a relevant ideal. The 'esperer' which means hope in French sounds like Esperanto, and I hope for you that this 'neutral' language will thrive.

Cheers,
Danny Friedmann
