- Quotes and anecdotes
- To make Smalltalk a truly universal language with equal chances for anyone, we might want to let go of English. But then we need a language which is not too hard to learn. We might try... Esperanto! It has only 16 grammar rules and the rest is just learning words. It would be something different if we would start programming Smalltalk a la Esperanto. We could even write these e-mails in Esperanto. – ReinierVanLoon

- See Lojban, an improved Loglan, one of whose objectives is to make computer use of human language easier. –Erik Rauch
