UNITARIO DEVELOPPATE (Panorama p.21, nov-dec 1994, anno 7, num. 6)

Unitario, publicate in 1984 per Mario Pleyer (pseudonymo pro le germano Rolf Riehm), esseva un forte interlinguisation de esperanto, elaborate per un esperantista qui durante annos se habeva irritate del artificialitate de esperanto.

Ora unitario ha essite developpate in duo variantes: le "lingua minimal" unitario 2001 e le version total unitario 2002. (Panorama in interlingua 6/1994)

Le lingua se approxima de plus in plus a interlingua (e espaniol), 1o que es natural, habente vidite le enthusiasmo del autor pro justo interlingua. In le hove libro, multo professional in aspecto, interlingua es anque grandemente usate pro comparationes lingual. "Con solmente alcun poc correctiones in le orthographia del lingua espaniol il es anque possibile traducer circa 90% de un qualcunque texto", e "Dictionarios del lingua espaniol es le melior pro traducer un texto a UNITARIO" (p. 133).

Le grande similitude inter interlingua e unitario anque significa que omne le - bon - argumentos publicate pro unitario valerea equalmente ben pro interlingua. Mario Pleyer/Rolf Riehm anque es multo positive a interlingua, e in le fin del libro ille naturalmente include un lista de libros recommendate de interlingua.

Here is some information about UNITARIO, sources are the ``Kurzgrammatik (dated 1989-06-06) and the Unitario journal No. 1 (2/1990).

Alphabet and phonology:Edit

Rolf Riehm invented his own alphabet for phonetic spelling. The following letters are used for Unitario:

Vowels:Edit

'a, "a (a-umlaut), e, i, o, "o, u, "u pronounced more or less like in German.

Diphtongs:Edit

'ay (ai), oy (oi, german eu), av (au), and ev (eu like in Italian Europa).

Konsonants:Edit

b, c (pronounced k), d, f, g, h, j (like in German, Engl. y in year), k, l, m, n, p, q (only in combination nq, pronounced ng), r, s (voiceless), ^s (s-circumflex, pronounced as z in zero), t, v (w in water), w (v in very), x (ch in Bach, Loch), z (sh in ship), ^z (zh, like the s in mea_s_ure).

The following are used in transcribing sounds of some European languages: nj (like gn in champa_gn_er), lj,(like ll in Basti_ll_e), \theta for voiceless th, \ss (scharfes s, \3) for voiced th, ^\circ (degree sign) schwa. ^x voiced ch (like g in Ar_g_entina), Diphtongs ey (ei) and uy (ui).

Long vowels are denoted by duplication of the vowel, short ones by duplication of the following consonant. ck is duplicated c or k. It seems, that c occurs in front of a,o,u and most consonants, k in front of e,i,v,s.

Grammar:Edit

,,Jede Regel des Unitario sollte mindestens eine Ausnahme haben"

(Each rule of Unitario should have at least one exception)

Fixed word order, Subject -Object -Predicate (although R. Riehm's own examples often deviate from this).

Numbers 1 to 10:Edit

una, dua, troja, kvarta, tzinqkva (! pron. tshingkwa), seksta, septa, otta, n"owa, diksi.

Articles: La /los (definite) una/unos (indefinite)

Nouns:Edit

Usually ending in -o, plural -oyn.

Adjectives:Edit

Usually ending in -e.

Comparison with: mas (more) and magis (most).

==,,Rote W"orter== (Red words)

Pronouns end in -a, plural -os.

Conjunctions and prepositions aren't changed.

Verbs:Edit

infinitive ending -ar,

past participle -ante,

Gerund [sic, in fact present participle] -iendo

Present tense: -as (singular), -amas (plural)

Past tense: -abis, -abimis

Future: -aros, -aromos

Conjunctive: -ius, iumus

Imperative: -i, imi

Irregular verb estar (to be) with present tense paradigma:

ego sum numos sumus
tuo estas w"atos estamas
ilo est loros sunt

Questions:Edit

Yes/no q. begin with kvod (Esperanto ^cu, ido ka).

All question words begin with kv-

Vocabulary:Edit

Strongly Spanish based, with unexpected bits of German (lando (country)), English (apon (upon)), Esperanto (cay (and)) and French (^z"usca (till)).

R. Riehm tried to advertise unitario to esperantists and interlingua-ists in europe, but both groups did not give up their language in favour to unitario. It seems that he now has converted to interlingua, at least he functions as german contact of the UMI (Union Mondial pro Interlingua).

> anyone have any information about a conlang called Unitario asks Bruce R Gilson. As a matter of fact there will probably be an article about it in the next _Journal of Planned Languages._ The author of Unitario was unable to attract any followers, and has given up in frustration, according to the forthcoming JPL article.

Bruce Gilson asks:

>Does anyone have any information about a conlang called Unitario (mentioned, >with a reproduction of a page or 2, in Gopsill's book)? The little I can see >in the piece reproduced gives the impression of being very close to Esperanto >(present tense verbs ending in -as, nouns forming plurals in -oyn, though it >does not appear that that decomposes as it would in Esperanto into a plural and >accusative ending) and I suspect I would not find it very much to my liking, >but I am curious about it.

Here's a copy of info I sent Rick Harrison on May 6:

>The ELNA office has two pamphlets on Unitario, which I borrowed this >evening. One is "Unitario per medio de picturoyn," based on the old >"Spanish Through Pictures" book; the other is "Unitario: ^zurnalo >poliglotte de latino moderne," anno 1 numero 1 (februario 1990). The >inventor and primary promulgator seems to be one Rolf Riehm, at Box >1825, D-6140 BENSHEIM, Germany (today that would be W-6140 or >D-W-6140); the picture book is written by one "Mario Pleyer," who >may be a pseudonym of Riehm.

>Sample of the language:

>In generale, mija ideo in developar UNITARIO estabis, ke ego prenas >omnes reguloyn de Interlinqgua or alicuno altere linqgva universale, se >kvistos reguloyn apparamas logicale cay practicale. Ergo: ego pode usar >sine problemoyn la terminatsion de Interlinqgua '-mente'.

>Por demonstrar tuja eksemplo:

>'.. in unsinnnig vielen Sprachen ...'

>'.. in linqgvoyn absurdamente numerose ...'

>Evidente la significatsion multe differente est de kvista eksemplo:

>'.. Esperanto absurde cay unlogicale est ...'

>Se tuo trovas alios eksemployn de mija projecto kvejos absolumente

>contra omnes reguloyn della gramatico de nostros linqgvoyn evropeja

>infractar, per fawor nenio hesitas de luy-mismo indicar al mija attentsion.

Hope this helps, Bruce.
