In la libro "The Loom Of Language" par Frederick Bodmer, it describ
lang nomineda "Universal-Sprache", qui estav createda *ante* Volapuk.
 
Di est suma text in Universal-Sprache, de la libro:
 
   Men senior, I sende evos un grammatik e un varb-bibel de un nuov
   glot nomed universal glot. In futur I scriptrai evos semper in
   did glot. I pregate evos responden ad me in dit self glot.
 
Me pense que vos comprendav la majora part de da mesag. Per comparation,
la equala text in Eurolang est suba (Quiz tu pense qua text est plus
facila lectar?):
 
   Mes sinjor, me send to tu gramar et word-libro de nova lang
   nomineda "universal glot". Futurae me tot-tempae scribara to tu
   in da lang. Me bon-parle tu respondar to me in da equala lang.
 
La creater de Universal-Sprache estav nomineda Pirro. Universal-Sprache
havav 7000 words in its dictionari. Bodmer scribav que Universal-Sprache
est "far better" (=multae plus bona) rel Volapuk, et me concorde.
 
So la quization est: Qua-raisonae Volupuk estav sucesa (per suma temp),
but Universal-Sprache no estav sucesa?
 
Et: Quiz nos pos lernar qua lernizers, de la relationa suces de da 2
conials?
