Universalglot may be revivable

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Auxlang has been discussing the language Universalglot over the past few days, a language that I've never really taken a look at and one that Wikipedia does not have much information on. However, it turns out that there are quite a few resources on the language:

I've actually only looked at the first link so far which is a grammar of the language in French of about 400 pages in length. I can't make a judgment on the language just yet but the resources are valuable enough that they are worth a post even without any further commentary. Universalglot comes across as a classic late 19th to early 20th century auxlang (though it's actually older than Volapük) with no chance of Romance drift.
