The Dnghu Group is a non-profit organization provisionally headquartered in Badajoz, Spain,
whose main aim is to provide EU citizens with a national language
to facilitate communication and trade.
The Dnghu Group was formed primarily to:
- provide a framework for open, collaborative language development
projects by supplying hardware, communication and business infrastructure;
- create an independent legal entity which can be funded by
public institutions and
private companies and individuals, and be assured that those resources
will be used for the public benefit and do not enrich its founders;
- provide a means for individual volunteers to be sheltered from
intellectual property violations and from legal suits directed
at the Foundation's projects; and,
- protect the 'Dnghu', 'Europaio' and 'Europaiom' brands, as
applied to language products, from being abused by other
individuals or organizations.
No. We have no legal status for the moment, our resources are privately funded. There is,
however, a private project aimed at providing a legal framework for the Group
being studied at present by a Foundation related to the regional Government of Extremadura.
Should they consider it a
valuable project, our future legal shape will be that of a private Foundation.
There are currently two founding members, María Teresa Batalla and Carlos Quiles, as well as
four permanent supporters,
two distinguished scholars of the Extremadura University, experts in
Library Science and Economics,
and two English philologists, one of them with English citizenship.
Well, you know better than us how you could collaborate with our projects. Are you a
software developer? a philologist? a server administrator? a politician? do you represent
a local or regional authority that would be interested in funding us? are you rich?...
Be it money or work, every help is indeed welcome, and we hope you can find enough opened
projects to participate
If you are European and you could contribute in some special way to our projects, there is certainly a
job for you at Dnghu. There are no paid jobs, though. To work for us right now means to give
up a better job elsewhere and to dedicate yourself to the project for its future success alone,
without even a promise of being somehow rewarded if we succeed. If you
are still interested, please send us your curriculum vitae at
Yes. And no. You can do whatever you like with your time and money, while it doesn't
confront our legitimate rights over Dnghu, Europaio or Europaiom brands, as well
as our works' copyrights. If yours will be a
project which follows our basic standards, and will not obtain illegitimate benefits
from our works, please consider helping us grow united, and
think about how difficult could it be for the Europaio language to be standardized
if our efforts
are split up in too many different projects; even though many of our contributors have
different ideas about Europaio and Dnghu, we all try to collaborate with each other to
succeed in our common objective. Nevertheless,
if you still want to develop your own independent project,
contact us if you think we would be interested
in supporting or otherwise helping you.
Europaio is the modern language based on an old language spoken by a prehistoric community,
which is usually called Indo-European or Indo-Germanic -among other, lesser used names- by
Indo-European (or IE) scholars. The Indo-European language we are referring to is the
immediate common ancestor to many of modern European languages. If Latin is the mother of
Romance languages, and (Proto-)Germanic that of the Germanic languages, then old Europaio
is the mother of Latin and Germanic, i.e., modern languages' grandmother. Modern Europaio is
thus a reconstruction based mainly on the common ancestor of the European languages, also called
Northern Dialects, which include Germanic, Latin, Celtic, Baltic or Slavic, but do not include
necessarily the Indo-Aryan or Iranian branches' features, for example.
Its main goal is to substitute present-day linguae
from third parties
within Europe for a National Language which would be spoken by all as our own language.
Europaio is not about prehistoric
Indo-European studies. It is not about uniting Iranians, Indians and Europeans with the rest
of the Indo-European world against the other half. It is not about discovering the truth about
the European Homeland. It is not about substituting EU Member States'
regional or national languages.
And it is certainly not
about some invented Aryan or European race.
First and foremost, you wouldn't be able to understand it, and as this web site's main goal is
informing others about our projects, it wouldn't be very clever for us to write it in a
language only spoken by those who already know it.
And secondly, Europaio is not
still stable enough for us to write it here. We have provided some 'sandboxes' where
everybody can write and read each others' Europaio texts, so that we obtain a final stable output.
If we used Europaio in our writings, everybody would turn to us and our texts to support
their ideas about the grammatical rules and the vocabulary.
We want people and experts to develop the language freely, and to
discuss all the possibilities without our influence.
If we chose now to follow our rules without waiting for others' opinions,
they would become probably
unquestionably established standards in the future.
