Saluton!

Johano62's picture

Mi nomiĝas John kaj mi decidis komenci blogon pri kaj en esperanto. Plejparte, mi intencas verki esperante, sed mi ankaŭ okaze verkos angle (certe mi devis verki la unuan afiŝon esperante).

Tamen, kiu mi estas?

Mi esperantiĝis en 1980, kiam mi havas 18 jarojn. Dum mia unua dekjaro, mi estis pli-malpli aktiva esperantisto. Mi ne iris al kongresojn, sed mi estis fidela membro de mia loka grupo. Tiam, mi translokiĝis al suda kalifornio. Mi trovis grupon, sed post kelkaj jaroj mi ne plu ĉeestis iliajn kunvenojn.

Dum la jaroj post, mi havis maloftan kontakton kun aliaj esperantistoj. Okaze, mi iris al sciencfikciaj kunvenojn, kaj tie mi kunvenis kun aliaj esperantistoj. Bedaŭrinde, tie nia konversacio konsistis nur de "Saluton," "kiel vi fartas," kaj eble du aŭ tri pli frazoj.

English lessons in Esperanto

Mike Jones's picture

I have started a website of (American) English lessons.

The student has the option of doing the lessons in English, or in Esperanto.

These English lessons consist of questions, with answers provided. By attempting to answer the questions before looking at the solutions, you can treat this as a diagnostic quiz.

In order to provide focus and added interest, the questions are based on the content of the Consulate General of the United States, Guangzhou, China.

Accordingly, I call my website "Immigration English".

Here is the address of my website:

List of Statistical Terms, with Esperanto translations

Mike Jones's picture

I have created a website devoted to Statistics.
My main priority was to create a raw list of terminology and phraseology, a list fairly comprehensive, but limited to Statistics to assist those studying this subject. I wanted a raw list without definitions cluttering up the list, so that the list would be easily perusable. This list is now ready. I call it the "long list" because I intend to create a short list from it, and also a tiny list from it, so the user can choose which list to peruse. It includes the option of downloading the list, in Microsoft Word format. (I will be adding the option of downloading the list in PDF format in the near future.)

This website of mine is item #90 in the list of recommended places of my public domain materials website:

Esperanto: the opposite of Basque

Mike Jones's picture

They say that Basque, "has no known origin, and has yet to be positvely related to any other language." Esperanto, on the other hand, has a well-known origin, and is positively related to a number of other languages. Therefore, Esperanto can be viewed as the opposite of Basque.

MONTEREY MELT: POBLANO

Mike Jones's picture

Whataburger has a new offering called "Monterey Melt" that contains an ingredient that looks like an Esperanto word: poblano.

Here is the link to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary for "poblano":

How to say "all of the"? How to say "all the"?

Johano_Pasero's picture

How does one say the following:

Who spilled all of the water?
He drank all of the water.
He gets his way all the time.

Do I have spinach on my teeth?

Mike Jones's picture

In the comments section of one of the Yahoo! News articles, someone thanked a non-American who make a perceptive remark about America, saying that such insight from others is important because we never see the spinach on our teeth. Of course, this can easily be expanded into a plug for Eseranto:

"In any discussion, we need the input of others, because we never see the spinach on our teeth, and Esperanto includes others like nothing else can do. "

To someone insisting on English in the comments section of a Yahoo! News article on a certain linguistic topic a couple days ago, I gave 17 replies, one of which is, "English is a flash in the pan. Esperanto is forever."
