People's Lingua Franca

Peoplese is a global language designed to enable people around the planet to communicate clearly and accurately – without learning unnecessarily complicated grammar and memorizing irregular spellings of thousands of words.  Peoplese is English simplified, regularized, clarified, updated – plus the addition of numerous learner-friendly devices from Chinese, Spanish, Finnish, and several other languages, along with clear guidelines for forming new words that will ultimately further simplify and beautify the language.

This is the one and only official Peoplese website.  Peoplese language has been trademarked - in China, EU, India, USA, etc.  Thousands of pages of literature have been published exclusively in Peoplese, thereby legitimizing the language.

Key points: 
        1. Peoplese is completely comprehensible to English speakers.
        2. English speakers can become fluent Peoplese speakers in one day.  (Per "Learn Peoplese" orange tab below.)
        3. Non-English speakers can learn Peoplese in a fraction of the time required to learn English. 
        4. Thus, Peoplese is a humanitarian language aimed at greatly lightening the memorization load of children, and providing access to the benefits of knowing an international language for adults too busy to spend years learning a language.

Peoplese is a species language, different from existing languages in that it allows flexibility for cultural differences.  Peoplese is an easy-to-learn communication infrastructure for ethnic and individual expression.  For example, Chinese Peoplese may contain less noun-articles ("a", "an", and "the", non-existent in their language), which Europeans would be in the habit of inserting.  Therefore no Peoplese sentence can be “wrong”, as in existing languages.  And Peoplese can be spoken on various levels:  market (only useful vocabulary, no grammar), conversational (basic vocabulary, adaquate grammar), fluent (good vocabulary and grammar), specialist (with, e.g. scientific or technical vocabulary), literary (creative, language leaders).  The main guidepost:  your Peoplese, at whatever level, must be comprehendable to accomplished Peoplese speakers.

Peoplese vocabulary, based mainly on English words, consists of root-words to which are add۔d fixed-meaning prefixes and suffixes (separated by a half-length hyphen).  Spell۔ing of root-words never changes. Peoplese uses completely regular spelling, only four irregular verbs, no irregular plurals, hyphenated prefixes and suffixes with unique fixed meanings, self-explanatory mid-dot words, both familiar and formal pronouns, unlimited derivative possibilities, gender-specific function nouns, consistent and logical punctuation, simplified grammar, a revamping of European-centered geopolitical names, native names for most nations, and logical, consistent geographical names based on satellite mapping -- among numerous other features.  Designed especially for non-native English speakers, intuitive and unambiguous Peoplese, with many hundreds fewer vocabulary words and thousands fewer irregular derivatives to memorize, is much easier to learn than any existing major language.  Unlike increasingly chaotic English, Peoplese is designed to self-improve with age.  Guidelines for creating new words are herein provided.  Success depends on Peoplese speakers passing on the good but not the bad.  The good is intuitive, pleasant sounding, and requires no or little memorization.

Peoplese has two spelling systems.  Peoplese Alike English spelling is completely comprehendable to English speakers, and vice versa.  With Peoplese Sound Spell Same (SSS), which is based on English but with some changes, if you hear a word, you know how to spell it, and if you read a word you know how to pronounce it.  Thus, no time spent learning how to spell words.

Standard Peoplese pronunciation uses English alphabet sounds, although with a French “j” and slightly rolled Spanish  “r”.  But, as currently with English, people from different ethnicities will speak Peoplese with sounds from their own languages.  The best Peoplese will imitate Brazilian Portuguese "fala cantando", a singsong way of speaking sentences.

Peoplese, as a species language, is for all people.  Temporary default international language English effectively locks out the huge portion of humanity that does not have the time and resources for their children to attend ten or more school years learning a non-native language.  Peoplese, by contrast, can be learned to travel fluency level within months:  in the time required to learn 200 root words plus 120 prefixes and suffices (most words borrowed from English language), and put them together using your native language's grammar.  Native English speakers, excused from years learning foreign languages, may be glad to weather the inconvenience of Peoplese, knowing that the language will enable billions to communicate  jglobally. 
Market-level Peoplese can be learned in a days or weeks. This official Peoplese website is translated into major languages from which the vast majority of the world’s people can learn Peoplese.

Why do we need Peoplese?  Answer:  for the children.  Middle-school graduates in native English-speaking nations, for example, have been forced to memorize the irregular spellings of more than 3,500 words, and to arrange words with overly complex grammar, strictly enforced.  A billion chidren around the planet are attempting the same task.  Mass-torture.  Needless.  Peoplese is much simpler, much more quickly learned, yet fully comprehendable to English speakers.  Playtime instead.  Secondly:  to enfranchise all people everywhere with the ability to communicate globally.
