Considerable use is also made by Esperantists of the International Auxiliary Money-unit (Internacia Helpa Mono) introduced by M. Rene de Saussure, of the Internacia Scienca Asocio, Geneva. The unit is the Speso, equivalent to one-tenth of a farthing in English money.

10 spesoj (abbr. 10 s.) = 1 spesdeko (1 sd.) = 1/4d. 100 spesdekoj (100 sd.) = 1 spesmilo (1 sm.) = 2s. 0d. 1 sm. = 100 sd. = 1,000 s.

The approximate values of 10 spesmiloj in terms of the various national units are as follows: 10 spesmiloj = 25 francs = 20 shillings = 20 marks = 5 dollars = 24 Austrian kroner = 18 Scandinavian kroner = 12 Dutch florins = 9-1/2 roubles = 4-1/2 Portuguese milreis = 9 Brazilian milreis = 5 pesetas = 9-3/4 yen.

The chief point to remember is that 1 spesmilo equals 2 shillings, and 1 spesdeko equals approximately 1 farthing.

WEIGHTS & MEASURES. (Pezoj kaj Mezuroj.)

The Metric System is the one in general use among Esperantists. The following table shows the essential decimal character of the system:

Parts. Length. Weight. Capacity. One-thousandth. Milimetro. Miligramo. Mililitro. One-hundredth. Centimetro. Centigramo. Centilitro. One-tenth. Decimetro. Decigramo. Decilitro. ONE. METRO (unit).

NOTES

[1] Any information as to Esperanto groups, literature, etc., may be obtained on application to The British Esperanto Association, 142, High Holborn, London, W.C. 1.

[2] The names of trees and bushes are formed by adding the suffix -uj (or simply -arbo, tree) to the root denoting the fruit or flower. E.g., pruno, plum—prunujo or prunarbo, plum-tree; marono, chestnut—maronujo, maronarbo, chestnut-tree; rozo, rose—rozujo, rozarbeto, rose-bush.

[3] See section "The Noun."

[4] Where a country is called after its inhabitants, the Esperanto name for it is formed by adding the suffix *-uj* (= that which contains, see section "Suffixes") or *-lando* (land) to the root denoting the inhabitant. Thus: Belg-o, Belgian—Belg-ujo, Belgium; Brito, Briton—Grandbritujo, Great Britain; Sviso, a Swiss—Svisujo, Switzerland; or Belgolando, Skotlando, Anglolando, Svislando, etc. Where the name of the inhabitants is formed from that of the country, use is made of the suffix *-ano* (= member of). Thus: Euxropo, Europe—Euxropano, European; Irlando, Ireland—Irlandano, Irishman.

[5] See *-an*, section "Suffixes".

[6] See section "Participles".

[7] See section "Suffixes".

[8] See section "Suffixes".

[9] For this purpose the small penny Esperanto "key," which contains the fundamental roots of the language, will be found useful. It may be obtained of any Esperanto bookseller.
