The problem is that no one uses Esperanto.

Tio estas malvera.

Fakte, hieraŭ mi revenis de kvintaga esperanta kunveno. Se neniu uzas Esperanton, mi ŝatas scii kiun lingvon vi pensas ke la homoj parolis tie. :)

Takso antaŭ jardekon estis ke Esperanto havas 2 milionojn da parolantoj. Sed verŝane nun estas multe pli.

That is absolutely false.

In fact, I returned yesterday from a 5 day Esperanto convention. If no one uses Esperanto, I would like to know which language you think the people there spoke. :)

An estimation of a decade ago was that Esperanto had 2 million speakers. But there are probably many more by now.

    I think the estimates for Welsh and even Gaelic suppass 2 million.

    Examine what is said, not who speaks.

      I think the estimates for Welsh and even Gaelic suppass 2 MB.

      That still in no way says anything about Esperanto.

      Esperanto is used and lives.

      Juerd # { site => '', plp_site => '', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }

        Esperanto is used and lives.
        Yeah, but it feels like Haskell to me. That's used and lives as well, but with just a relatively small amount of "speakers". (And the ability of Esperanto to create new words from a root plus pre- and postfixes looks a bit like Currying to me).
