Quotations from the Bahá’í writings and related texts regarding the adoption of a common language as 'the greatest instrument for promoting harmony and civilization' among the peoples of the world.
The Baha'i principle of an International Auxiliary Language (IAL) represents a detailed sociolinguistic paradigm for establishing peaceful and reciprocal relations between the world's primary speech communities - while shielding them from undue linguistic pressures from the dominant speech community/communities. With a detailed introduction, a glossary, and ample notes and references, this volume brings together a larger selection of Baha'i writings and related texts, from a variety of sources and source languages, as a foundation for our understanding of this unique language-planning proposition.
