Sidste uges quiz. Og vinderen er … (igen)

 

Sidste uges quiz handlede om Esperanto. Der kom kun ét svar, og det var, igen, Marcus Holst, som allerede vandt bøger i år for flere tusinde kroner. Så han vandt igen. Spørgsmålet var: hvor har Esperanto været et officielt sprog? Marcus Holsts svar er:

Esperanto har været det officielle sprog i to micronationer, nemlig republikken Rose Island (som lå i Adriaterhavet ved Italiens kyst) og republikken Molossia (som ligger i den amerikanske stat Nevada). Ingen af disse to har været anerkendt som selvstændige stater. 

Ja, det er fuldstændig korrekt. Jeg har en plan at skrive et indlæg om sprog i micro-nationer en gang, og der var flere der valgte Esperanto som deres sprog. Men der mangler ét stat, som faktisk var, i en kort periode, et anerkendt land, og det var Neutrale Moresnet. Landet eksisterede som sådan fra 1918 til 1920, og grænsede til Belgien, Nederlandene og Tyskland. Esperanto var ét af de officielle sprog. I 1920 blev det del af Belgien.

            Til lykke Marcus, du bliver kontaktet om endnu en præmie.

 

 

Neŭtrala Moresneto (3)

Last week’s quiz. And the winner is…. (again…)

 

Last week’s quiz was about Esperanto. There was only one (1) answer, and that was, again, Marcus Holst, who already won books this year for several thousand kroner. So he won again. The question was: where has Esperanto been an official language? Marcus Holst’s answer is:

Esperanto has been the official language of two micronations, namely the Republic of Rose Island (located on the Adriatic coast off the coast of Italy) and the Republic of Molossia (located in the US state of Nevada). Neither of these two have been recognized as independent states.

Yes, that’s completely correct. I have a plan to write a post about languages ​​in micro-nations one time for Lingoblog and there were several who chose Esperanto as their language. But one state is missing, which in fact was, for a short period, a recognized country, and that was Neutral Moresnet. The country existed as such from 1918 to 1920, and bordered Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. Esperanto was one of the official languages. In 1920 it became part of Belgium.

Congratulations Marcus, you will be contacted for another prize!
