Excerpt from Delphos the Future of International Language

International Congresses of all sorts are similarly impeded. Impromptu translations, by which the business is delayed, provide, at best, only a summarized paraphrase Of the speeches, which are Often garbled beyond the recognition of their authors, as we can personally testify from experience.

Though prejudice and inertia have deferred the establishment of a world-language, means of international communication have been devised, of necessity, to meet many claimant needs. Such include the Morse Code, in vented in 1832 (but foreshadowed in method by Bacon's cipher so early as the sixteenth century); the maritime signal code adopted by England and France in 1862 and soon after by all nations; the Gregorian calendar; maps, and figures, the face of the clock; the measuration Of time, and the notation of music. Chemistry, botany, and other sciences have their universal signs and nomenclature. The Formulario de Mathematica of Peano, 1895 - 1908, has completed the elimination of language from mathematics. Dewey's decimal classification of 'books, invented in 1873, meets no linguistic barriers. The civilized world west of Germany has adopted the Roman alphabet, which is always becoming more widely used in printing German. The Angora government has resolved to use it instead Of Arabic characters for the Turkish language, and missionaries substitute it for those of the Far Eastern tongues.
