Their separate existence is a myth. For science, music, sport, etc, Europe uses the same vocabulary. The languages only differ in their grammar, their pronunciation and their most common words. Everyone realizes why a new common language would be desirable: one could refuse to pay expensive translators. To achieve this, it would be necessary to have uniform grammar, pronunciation and more common words. If several languages coalesce, the grammar of the resulting language is more simple and regular than that of the individual languages. The new common language will be more simple and regular than the existing European languages. It will be as simple as Occidental; in fact, it will be Occidental. To an English person, it will seem like simplified English, as a skeptical Cambridge friend of mine told me what Occidental is. The European languages are members of the same family.
The pages are thick enough that you can write on both sides of the paper without any bleedthrough and even if you have heavy pressure handwriting (like I do) you won\’t break through the paper. The pages are actually so sturdy you can hold the entire notebook up by one page without it tearing off! I LOVE these things!
Great for office use – great value for the pack if you are buying these notebooks any time outside of a back-to-school sale.
