An international auxiliary language (sometimes abbreviated as IAL or auxlang) or interlanguage is a language meant for communication between people from different nations who do not share a common native language.
Thus, while English is in wide international use, it is not generally considered an auxiliary language because of its close association with nations and cultures in which it is spoken natively.
Languages with naturalistic derivation; for example, Occidental and Interlingua, are designed so that not only the root words but their compounds and derivations will often be recognizable at sight by people familiar with the source languages. /encyclopedia/International_auxiliary_language   (996 words)

An international auxiliary language (sometimes abbreviated as IAL or auxlang) is, generally speaking, a language used for communication between people from different nations who do not share a common native language.
The term "auxiliary" implies that it is not intended to replace the native languages of the people from around the world using it, but rather is intended to serve as a standard to avoid the need for its would-be users to learn all of the languages in its pool of users.
Moreover, since there are also various mutually unintelligible sign languages throughout the world as well, sign languages such as Gestuno have also been proposed and/or designed to serve the role of serving as a lingua franca throughout the world (for the deaf at least).

An international auxiliary language (sometimes abbreviated as IAL or auxlang) is a language used (or to be used in the future) for communication between people from different nations who do not share a common native language.
Although proposals have been made for existing languages to serve as an official international auxiliary language, the concept has been most commonly associated with constructed languages such as Esperanto which were designed from the beginning to serve this purpose.
Invented auxiliary languages are not widely used; nor have natural languages such as English and French penetrated universally, as some people imagine.

While some existing sentential languages have been proposed to serve as an official international auxiliary language, the concept has been most commonly associated with constructed sentential languages such as Esperanto and Interlingua which were designed from the beginning to serve this purpose.
Proponents of such languages often use the term planned language instead (but this is somewhat ambiguous since it is also used to refer to a standardized ethnic language or constructed languages in general).
International sign is distinct in many ways from spoken IALs; many signs are iconic and signers tend to insert these signs into the grammar of their own sign language, with an emphasis on visually intuitive gestures and mime.

 World Auxiliary Language convocation - Ideas
Where an international auxiliary language to be chosen by international consensus, such as through a specific convocation held for this purpose could ensure that children were being taught in all primary and secondary schools of the world, and thus ensuring that an international auxiliary language could take root.
Proponents of constructed languages suggest that such a language would provide other advantages such as being neutral, being simple to learn, having a lack of gender bias, etc., but, even a "natural" language could conceivably be chosen to fill this role.
Proponents respond that as an auxiliary language (not replacing mother languages but one being agreed upon as a standard second, or in some cases, third language), individuals could still preserve (and even enhance their ability to preserve) their native language(s).

 Esperanto language, alphabet and pronunciation
Esperanto is an international auxiliary language devised in 1887 by Dr. Ludovic Lazar Zamenhof (1859-1917), a Jewish Eye Doctor, under the pseudonym of "Doktoro Esperanto".
He originally called the language "La Internacia Lingvo" (The International Language), but it soon became known as Esperanto, which means "the hoping one".
He believed that much of the distrust and misunderstanding between the different ethnic groups was a result of language differences, so he resolved to create an international language which could be used as an neutral lingua franca and could help break down the language barriers.

In the philosophy of language, a natural language (or ordinary language) is a language that is spoken, written, or signed (visually or tactilely) by humans for general-purpose communication, as distinguished from such constructs as computer-programming languages or the "languages" used in the study of formal logic, especially mathematical logic.
Natural language processing (NLP), which is computerised support for natural-language style input (as opposed to the highly artificial syntax normally seen in computer languages) is a major sub-field of artificial intelligence and linguistics.
Natural languages are deemed to be unsuitable for programming languages simply because they have a vast vocabulary that can be deemed infinite, complex grammatical rules and a sense of ambiguity surrounding them.

  The function of an international auxiliary language
So far as the advocates of a constructed international language are concerned, it is rather to be wondered at how much in common their proposals actually have, both in vocabulary and in general spirit of procedure.
This does not mean that a constructed international language is expected to have the perfection of mathematical symbolism, but it must be progressively felt as moving in that direction.
It is, of course, not the language as such which is sinned against, but the conventions of fitness which are in the minds of the natives who act as custodians of the language.

This asserts that, since any national language, however large the area it may represent, is by definition less than universal in scope, it cannot do full justice to the speech and thought of an area with a different outlook, sense of history, and cultural and religious experience, as expressed through language.
Assuming this came to pass, the relationship between the international auxiliary language and every national tongue would be comparable to that which presently exists, or has existed, between the minority ethnic tongues and the great national languages which entirely surround them.
Thus there is no reason to suppose that an international auxiliary consciously developed for creative usage would not gradually obtain the linguistic and euphonic capacity to incorporate all useful features, whether structural or decorative, from both "national" and constructed languages.

 Can a Language Be Owned? Excerpt from THE LANGUAGE IMPERATIVE, by Suzette Haden Elgin
IALs have tended to reflect the cultures of those who construct or choose them — as the evidence for the strong link between language and culture would predict — and therefore to bring along with them all the political problems associated with those cultures.
Because IALs are a hobby limited to people with unusual interests, as compared to people interested in postage stamps or baseball or gardening, they've frequently been constructed with little regard for how difficult they might be to learn and use.
The idea of trying to run a world with a language specifically designed to express the perceptions of a warrior race is equally strange, despite its convenient fit with the Warrior metaphor that organizes so much of American life; a language designed for the Diplomat metaphor would be better suited to the task.

The language should be designed so that all compounds can be unambiguously divided into their constituent morphemes, and so that no single morpheme can be mistaken for a combination of several morphemes.
In some cases, they have refused to spell out their rules of syntax, claiming that the arrangement of words in their languages would be “natural” or “intuitive.” This invariably means that it is “natural” to those who have the same native language as the IAL designer, and not to others.
In some constructed languages, it is necessary to memorize whether a verb is inherently transitive or intransitive, and affixes are used to convert transitive verbs to intransitive and vice versa.

 Esperanto FAQ: Part 9
The International Auxiliary Language Association (IALA) researched this point scientifically, and came up with the conclusion that while there are 6 170 languages in the world (not including dialects) at this time, there is no evidence that a language with one word from each language would be more popular.
First of all, there are thousands of languages in the world and if Esperanto attempted to create its vocabulary from even 10 % of them you would simply get a language which would be very difficult to learn for everybody instead of the real Esperanto which is relatively easy for all.
In fact, what makes Esperanto a truly "international" language (as distinct from a "world" language like English) is its extraordinary semantic flexibility which allows speakers from different language families to translate their own thought patterns directly into Esperanto and produce something which is perfectly intelligible and grammatically correct.

At the outset of the 20th century, it was taken for granted that the true test of any auxiliary language would be its adoption for use in the sciences.
This distinction between the international vocabulary and any language built out of it was later underlined by Gode and Blair when they noted in the preface to the Interlingua Grammar (1951b) that it was "a grammar of the international language" (original emphasis).

An artificial language is an idiom that has not developed in a speech community like a natural tongue but has been constructed by human agents from various materials, such as devised signs, elements or modified elements taken from existing natural languages, and invented forms.
Another type of artificial language that has had more popular success is the kind formed from elements or modified elements of existing natural languages.
The grammar is based on that of European languages but is greatly simplified and regular; its syntax, spelling, and pronunciation are influenced especially by Slavonic.

It may seem that creating an IAL is too big an enterprise for one person, but the only reason for this is that none of the existing languages have found it that easy to become accepted and actually learned for the sake of international cooperation and understanding.
In fact, the whole concept of an IAL is so new to history that it is diametrically the opposite of what politicians would want to use it for (their own concerns).
The fact that international agencies restrict their sphere of operation to material necessities allows for a rudimentary IAL employed solely as an auxiliary or second language.
