Description[edit | edit source]

Volapük is an international auxiliary language constructed by the German priest Johann Martin Schleyer in 1879. It enjoyed a brief popularity in the late 19th century. The language is often considered unnecessarily complex when compared with alternatives like Esperanto, which had almost completely displaced Volapük by the turn of the century. Today only a few dozen Volapük speakers remain.
