if a man receives a letter in alteutonik he en hunt up a ger- *'esperanto" n "ido" en not b understood unless it s learned first, whc very few h done, or wl do. e teutonik name i h called ths ])ropo£ed language "'teutonik" because tht s e most generic native name, generally understood n used, tht i en find.
'"alteutonik" wl also b e easiest n most complete n reliable union tongue for e english-speaking peoples t learn n t introduce as e only national home language. "english" or '"simplified english, new english, anglc-saxon," cr "anglo-german" wd not h in- cluded e Scandinavians n holiauders, but "teutonik" (teu- tonic) is e generic name for our whole race, n moans e people.
i) the german language s e most homogeneous, transparent n self-explaining of all e great languages; 2) german stands nearer our sister tongues, e Scandinavian n dutch tongues, than english wth its mixed latin n greek vocabulary, n un-"fonetik" spelling; 3) e ger- man people are e most si)read out over e world of all peoples.
e english, french, spanieh n russians h hd their own colonies to concentrate upon, while e germans h hd t go t foreign countries.
all ceutonic children h heard a homogeneous words arm n bone; hence armbone wd b more suggestive than e latin heterogeneous humerus.
secondly, if it b true that "e more mental energy re- quired t master e words, e less mental energy is left for e ideas contained," thn tht again points t a small well-known homogeneous basis, for only such basis re- quires e least mental energy for mastering e words n leaves e greatest surplus mental energy for e ideas con- tained — as armbone for "humerus" n fishlore for "ichthy- — 4 — thirdly, if it b true t'"lansuagp shcl proceed from e known t e unknown.' thn it also points t a small homo- geneous basis, because in e experience v childhood, where ideas oris^inate, only e homcg Dneous native words cd b well-known ones fourthly, if it b trut' that languas'e should proceed from e pimple words t e complex, thn it again follows naturally tht we must build on e homogeneoui, native saxori, Teutonic words, because only tuch words are e simple ones by whc we en build up e higher ones; a?
if it b true tht "e ease v e suggestive action s strong in proportion t e number v tms e word or rule n e idea h bn associated in consciousness," thu it follows as a necessary corollary tht grammar must h few n simple rules, for otherwise thr cannot b e re- quired frequency v association between e given rule n idea, in order t obtain e highest degree v ease n rapidity in e suggestive action.
