I remember some facts about an international auxiliary language (IAL) created by a Japanese person, but unfortunately I both forgot the name of the inventor and the name of the IAL. Can someone help me out?
Features that I can remember:
- Created by a Japanese around the turn of 19th to the 20th century
- Based on European languages (mostly latinate vocabulary)
- Having a schematic and simplified inflection
- When the author became aware of Esperanto he dumped his own IAL project and became one of the first Japanese Esperantists
I want to know the name of the author and (if available) the name of the language. Additional information is always welcome!
