The reason that I asked this question was because I had recently heard someone say that Esperanto was far too Western to be international. This bugged me a lot. Apparently, it actually is pretty Western, but I wanted to know what people thought of this. The responses on
Twitter: 'yeah, I know, mate, it's rough. But, I mean, what can anyone do, right?'
Discord: 'dude, the vocab is the problem imo. It's too European'
Friends: 'lol we should just change the word 'scii' tbh that's the real trouble'
I'm curious as to what other Esperanto speakers think of this. I personally think that some improvements could be made, but that they would be both subtle and would not so much be in the form of a reform so much as that they would become more and more popular over time, not dictated.
