There are roughly 5,000 or so languages in use in the world today. There have
been grandiose plans by people in the past to create a universal language for the world.
One example is a language published by Dr. L. L. Zamenhof over 100 years ago called
“Esperanto,” meaning “One who hopes.” This language has no culture attached to it; it
was created for the sole purpose of world communication. Not many people have even
showed first 75 words of 983 total

universal language? Even if we had a universal language,
there would be different dialects no matter where we went. People would still use code
words within their circles, whether it is a community circle, family circle, or circle of
friends. Language is part of what makes us unique individuals. If we take that away or
try to make us all the same, what would be interesting anymore?
