I know that we have had questions about numbers of Esperanto speakers in general, as well as if native speakers exist. Since we know that native speakers exist, and I've even found some recent scientific literature, I was wondering if the community could provide recent numbers specifically for native speakers. Here are two sources I found:
Corsetti, Pinto, & Tolomeo (2004) "Regularizing the regular: The phenomenon of overregularization in Esperanto-speaking children", Language Problems and Language Planning, 28:261–282 Jouko Lindstedt (January 2006). "Native Esperanto as a Test Case for Natural Language" (PDF). University of Helsinki – Department of Slavonic and Baltic Languages and Literatures.
