by Philipp Strazny
a project published under the auspices of the International Auxiliary Language Association, but primarily designed by its director Alexander Gode. Like the earlier naturalistic projects that it replaced, Interlingua was intended primarily for communication among educated Europeans; Gode's idea was to distill a ' Standard Average European' (a concept inspired by Benjamin Whorf) from lexical and grammatical elements common to English, French, Italian, and Spanish/ Portuguese.
