its esperanto - i have my whole system set to it - it is
surprisingly well-supported by most software

"artificial" is not the best word really - that just means
"created by people and not found in nature" - so all languages
are artificial - its not like you can dig one out of the ground
or pluck one off a tree - linguist nerds call esperanto and
klingon "constructed languages" - there are many others that
i had no idea existed either - apparently, linguists invent them
for fun

esperanto is in a different category though - it is also called a
"planned language"; because unlike klingon and most others, it
was invented with the intention that it would actually be used
generally - esperanto buffs call it "the international language"
- the idea is that it is very easy to learn, and can be a
universal second language for everyone, but a first language to
no one

curiously, i have found that most people who know it, are either
musicians or programmers or both - it is especially appealing to
programmers because of its regular grammar - learning it has
been a nice brain-bender
