Language Lessons

There have been over two thousand invented languages, of which only a handful are still spoken in Britain. Using interviews with speakers of Iso , Esperanto, and Volapuk , and rare archive material, Language Lessons examines the history and present state of the artificial language movement. The lessons take in Logopandecteision , Lips Kth , and the musical language, Solresol , but the medium of instruction is that most curious of hybrid languages, English.
