Linguistic worldview of esperanto: a questionnaire method
Abstract: This paper aims to identify the elements needed to carry out studies on the linguistic worldview of Esperanto.
The linguistic worldview is a subjective and socially created interpretation of reality embedded in the language. The chief objective is taking into account different levels of language that is vocabulary, idioms, morphology and syntax. Esperanto is probably the only fully developed planned language allowing for the study of its worldview.
All Esperanto speakers are at least bilingual, which leads to an assumption that the worldview in this language will contain elements transferred from other languages spoken by the respondents. Therefore, one of the research stages must contain tasks designed to detect these elements and determine the impact of the native languages.
