URO: A new language for Europe
In the first half of the 20th century, it was relatively popular to invent and speak artificial languages. Volapük (1879–1880) and Esperanto (1887) were one of the first invented. Later followed Ido (1907) and Interlingua (1951). These were all so-called international auxiliary languages, a constructed language meant for communication between people from different nations.
Esperanto gained a reasonable traction, but in the second half of the 20th century its use remained modest. During this period, Europe unified in the European Union. This also triggered the creation of some lesser known constructed languages. Most notable Eurolengo (1972), Uropi (1986), Europanto (1996) and Sambahsa-Mundialect (2007).
In the days of the internet, further unification of Europe and new technologies, it seems like a good time to design a new language.
I designed the language Uro, a new language for Europe. I am not a linguist or professional language designer, still I would like to share my own thoughts and experiments with it. This project is divided into three blogs:
The language is also open source, and you can check it on the following GitHub page:

Everyone who wants to develop the language further is free to fork the project or use the ideas of this blog.
