Title: Daughters of Esperanto
Written By: Alan Reed Libert
Series Title: Languages of the World 33
Description:

Esperanto is by far the most successful artificial language. However, some
of those who learned it were not satisfied with it and changed it in
various ways. Esperanto has also been modified to serve as an intermediate
language in machine translation. In addition, designers of some other
languages borrowed many elements from Esperanto. This book is a survey of
artificial languages resulting from these processes. After an introductory
chapter in which the languages are presented, there are chapters on
phonetics and phonology (including orthography), the lexicon, morphology,
syntax, and semantics.

At various points comparisons to Esperanto are made. The languages covered
include Ido (the best known language of this type), Aiola, Arlipo, Atlango,
the DLT Intermediate Language, Ekselsioro, La lingvo Esperantida,
Esperloja, Farlingo, Hom-idyomo, Linguna, Modern Esperanto, Mondezo,
Mondlango, Mondlingvo, Neo, Olingo, Perio, Zamenhof’s Reformed Esperanto,
Romániço, Sen:esepera, and Virgoranto. Some of these languages are quite
similar to Esperanto, while others are rather different in several
respects. Some daughters of Esperanto involve simplifications in one or
more areas of the grammar, but some have introduced greater complexity,
e.g. more personal pronouns or more morphological cases.
