Proto-Indo-European language revival and Indo-European grammar presented to Europe’s smallest state: the Sovereign Order of Malta

Fra’ Matthew Festing, the new Prince and Grand Master of the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes and of Malta (known as the Sovereign Military Order of Malta), a Catholic order based in Rome, considered a sovereign subject of international law – hence the smallest European state – has received information regarding our Proto-Indo-European language revival project and a copy of our grammar.

We contacted the recently elected Grand Master in the hope that PIE revival be supported by the Order, because it could be another way to help unite Europeans under our common values and culture, being easier for them to take such ‘linguistic policy’ decisions than for any other European state, as it cannot directly affect their citizens. If any measures are adopted, it would nevertheless be meaningful for Europe and the European Union. The Grand Master accepted the present and said he was “delighted to have it” and the he “would read it with interest”.

We are grateful for his polite answer and encouragement.

Still another change in domain names' strategy: stronger shift to 'Indo-European'

As the number of visitors increases, it becomes obvious that those coming from Google searches are also becoming the majority – instead of those coming from fixed external links, which was our best source until recently.

Now, even though we cannot know how Google’s pagerank (and thus search results) function, we do know that domain names are important.

Our recent strategy was to distantiate ourselves from Esperanto and other constructed languages’ projects; we wanted to be identified just with Indo-European language revival, with the modern use of a natural – althoug reconstructed – language.

Following this recent strategy, we have changed our europaio and sindhueuropaiom subdomains – a cheaper and more simple way of presenting the project – with different domains, selecting the most important languages in terms of population and Internet use, and also depending on the project (.eu for europaio, .org for sindhueuropaiom): (it), (fr), (en), (pl), (sv), (de), (nl); also (en), (es), (fr), (de), (ru), (pt)
