Esque il es possibile que ille italiano tentava explicar le ration pro le
qual esperanto non habeva successo in Italia. Io non crede que isto era le
facto. Le causa plus tosto era del genere sociologic, como in le resto del
mundo.
 
Differentias de linguas pote a vices esser multo divertente. Pro exemplo le
parola hungaro pro le instrumento  contrabasso es b=F6g=F6 lo que un svede
comprende como insula de gays (gay island), costume se lege k=F6nt=F6s (puel=
la
de sexo (sexy girl).

1. Le homine in le strata non cognosce iste linguas.
2. Il es multo probabile que "le homine in le strata" crederea que mesmo
espaniol o portugese o svedese es linguas debase, si ille non crede que
illo es parlate de milliones de homines.
 
Lo plus importante es que se un persona vide un texto in un lingua
international iste texto debe esser interessante e presentate in un maniera
attractive. Pro le persona qui non pote comprender le texto on deba
informar que le lingua ha iste o iste qualitates que pote esser profitabile
pro ille persona.

Ma honnestemente nos debe viver con isto. Si longe que on comprende lo que
nos dice, toto es in ordine.
 
a) Mes limpun ma Scunc, sleng jeven ma lippu!
b) Opikaa kungin kielt=E4, kaiken maailman kielin=E4!
Is any of these two language constructed?
If yes, give your reasons!
