Ido is a constructed language created in 1907 as a reform of Esperanto. It was designed to be more logical and regular than Esperanto, with a smaller vocabulary. Ido was intended to be international from the start, and its name comes from the Esperanto word for " offspring".
The language was originally called "Lingvo Internacia" (International Language), but its name was quickly changed to "Ido" by its creator, Louis de Beaufront. The word "ido" means "offspring" in Esperanto, and was chosen to signify that Ido is the "offspring" of Esperanto.
Ido was designed to be more regular than Esperanto, with a smaller vocabulary. It was also intended to be more culturally neutral than Esperanto, with no connection to any specific country or culture.
Ido has a Latin alphabet with 26 letters, and is written in a style similar to Esperanto. It has a simple grammar, with only two verb tenses and no gender.
Ido was designed to be easy to learn, and is currently used by a small community of speakers around the world.
