What does “Respondoj” mean?

The aim of respondoj.com is to give answers. In Esperanto, a constructed language that was invented in 1887 by Ludwik Lejzer Zamenhof, “respondo” means “answer”. If you want to build a plural in Esperanto, you simply add a “j” at the end. Therefore, the Esperanto word for “answers” is “Respondoj”.

Like with this website, a strong emphasis of Esperanto lies on the ease of use. Therefore, Zamenhof decided that all nouns in his language should end with an “o” – there are no grammatical genders and no exceptions. All adjectives end with an “a”, and all verbs end with “as” in the present tense – forget about declinations, conjugations, irregular verbs and other horrible stuff.

There you go – you just learned your first lesson in Esperanto. Be sure to check this website regularly to learn more soon.
