Arika Okrent reviewed again

On "In the Land of Invented Languages" by Arika Okrent, Short Story Reader (blog), April 1, 2011

The reviewer aptly summarizes Okrent's book. See comments, especially mine. I compliment Okrent's book, then amplify on Esperanto, on two points: (1) Esperantists do not all agree that the adoption of Esperanto inherently fosters world peace; even Zamenhof's argument was more complex than that; (2) Esperanto grammar is likely to continue as is in formal written and spoken usage, even if informally certain rules get violated, specifically omission of the accusative marker.
