Alvoko al verkistoj

pbrewer's picture

Du konataj verkistoj de hajkoj en Esperanto, HIROTAKI Masaaki kaj Steven D. BREWER, vokas al esperantistaj poeziistoj kaj verkistoj por hajbunoj por nova libro Survoje al Esperantujo: Vojetoj al verda interno.

Legu la alvokon kaj mallongan priskribon de la projekto.

(Hajbuno aŭ "hajka prozo" estas literatura formo, kiu enhavas (kompreneble) kaj prozon kaj hajkon. Enkondukis la terminon japano Matsuo Bashō.)

Esperanto for Profit

Below is a generic comment that I will
be posting in venues, such as Yahoo!
news articles, that lament the state of
the economy.

*****************************************************

Actually, there's a lucrative industry waiting to be developed, namely, that of providing Esperanto-language materials about English for the ESL industry. (In other words, using Esperanto as a metalanguage for English - thereby taking advantage of economies of scale.) I'm doing this myself on a public-domain basis, but others could do it on a copyrighted/proprietary basis and make a good living, if not a fortune.

Surprising Wikipedia article on a side topic of Esperanto

Mike Jones's picture

Just now while surfing the web I ran across a separate Wikipedia
article on the value of Esperanto for training purposes:

"Propaedeutic value of Esperanto"

That Wikipedia has an article on Esperanto is no surprise, but that
it has a completely separate article devoted to this aspect of
Esperanto is a surprise, and a welcome one, at least to me. Is anyone
else surprised? Did everyone else know about this? Am I the last to
know?

Anyway, here's the link:

L. L. Zamenhof and the Shadow People

Mike Jones's picture

Surfing the web, I just now came across Esther Schor's 2009 article
in New Republic: "L. L. Zamenhof and the Shadow People". I don't
know if any of you remember it from when it first appeared. I certainly
don't. Anyway, I thought it would bear giving the link to the online
article. It's a fascinating read:

Lastatempa E-agado

russ's picture

Hm, mi ne blogis ĉi tie dum longa tempo. Do mi resumas iom da mia relative lastatempa E-agado por eventualaj interesatoj. :)

Lastatempe aperis artikolo de mi pri vizito al Armenujo kaj Kartvelujo, specife pri lingvoj kaj manĝoj:
http://sezonoj.ru/2013/09/kavkazo/

Ankaŭ de la eldonejo Sezonoj aperis nova libro La aventuroj de Ŝerloko Holmso, en kiu aperas 2 tradukoj de mi. Unu el ili (kaj kelkaj aliaj antaŭaj tradukoj de mi) legeblas ĉe http://esperanto.org/Ondo/Ind-angl.htm

2 libroj, kiujn mi helpis traduki kaj provlegi, aperis: "La rakonto pri Kjeŭ" de Nguyễn Du kaj "Imperiaj ambicioj" de Noam Chomsky.

En La Gazeto #167 aperis mia traduko de sciencfikcia novelo "Bonding with Morry" de Tom Purdom, origine aperinta en Asimov's.

En Beletra Almanako #13 aperis mia traduko de anglalingva eseo "The Secret Malady of Esperanto Poetry" de Julius Balbin.

Iom regule lastatempe aperas diversaj mallongaj tradukoj de mi en Kancer-Kliniko.

Nuff said? - The case for Esperanto documentation of ethnic languages

Mike Jones's picture

Quirky expressions in the target language of a second-language learner can be a thorn in their side. Even if a given quirky expression is explained in the learner's home language, it can be hard for the learner to find it. And for a minority language, such explanation might not exist at all. This is a clear case where Esperanto can be of help - that is, by being a one-stop (/ONLY stop) source of explanation for such expressions. If that were all, it would already be enough to justify the effort at centrality of documentation, via Esperanto, of the world's languages. However, on top of that, there are quirky expressions that fall through the cracks, and Esperanto can be the one and only place to find their explanations. The kinds of expressions that fall through the cracks are those that are in common use by the native speakers, but are shunned by the dictionaries. This offers Esperanto an opportunity to scoop the ethnic language in question, by simply documenting the overlooked items.

Yet another slogan for Esperanto

Mike Jones's picture

Military maneuvers are the only thing besides Esperanto that transcend the language barrier.
