Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (ˈÆlɪsɪz Ədˈventʃəz ɪn ˈWʌndəˌlænd): An edition printed in the Ineternational Phonetic Alphabet
By Lewis Carroll, Illustrated by John Tenniel
2014. ISBN 978-1-78201-083-8

The International Phonetic Alphabet is a system of phonetic notation based primarily on the Latin alphabet. It was devised by the International Phonetic Association as a standardized representation of the sounds of spoken language. The IPA is used by lexicographers, foreign language students and teachers, linguists, speech and language pathologists, singers, actors, constructed language creators, and translators. This edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is written entirely in that same alphabet, with fonts specially designed by Michael Everson.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: An edition printed in the Unifon Alphabet
By Lewis Carroll, Illustrated by John Tenniel, Foreword by Michael Everson
2014. ISBN 978-1-78201-067-8

Unifon was developed in the 1950s as an auxiliary phonetic alphabet designed to help English-speaking children to learn to read, by starting them on a writing system that worked by sound. Tests showed that children were able to learn to read rather quickly using this system, and, having made that break­through, were able to learn tradi­tional English spelling with relative ease. This edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is written entirely in that same alphabet, with fonts specially designed by Michael Everson.

By Lewis Carroll, Illustrated by John Tenniel, Foreword by John H. Jenkins
2014. ISBN 978-1-78201-064-7

The Deseret alphabet was developed in the mid-19th century by the board of regents of the University of Deseret (later the University of Utah) under the direction of Brigham Young, second president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was intended to help make learning to write English easier. This wasn’t very successful, though the alphabet does have interesting phonemic features, as well as being a fascinating part of Mormon history. This edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is written entirely in that same alphabet, with fonts specially designed by John H. Jenkins and Michael Everson.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: An edition printed in the Shaw Alphabet
By Lewis Carroll, Illustrated by John Tenniel, Foreword by Thomas Thurman
2013. ISBN 978-1-78201-036-4

In his will, George Bernard Shaw left instructions (and some funds) for the development of a new regular alphabet for the English language. A design by Ronald Kingsley Read was chosen. In 1962, Shaw’s play Androcles and the Lion was printed in what became known as the Shaw Alphabet, or Shavian. This edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is written entirely in that same alphabet, with fonts specially designed by Michael Everson.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: An edition printed in the Ewellic Alphabet
By Lewis Carroll, Illustrated by John Tenniel, Foreword by Doug Ewell
2013. ISBN 978-1-78201-035-7

Doug Ewell devised the Ewellic alphabet in 1980, as a form of secret writing. A decade later, after Ewell had become a supporter of the Unicode Standard, he worked to improve his alphabet’s character repertoire and encoding. Ewellic is a phonemic alphabet, like Shavian, Unifon, and shorthands such as Pitman and Gregg. With fonts specially designed by Michael Everson, this edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is written entirely in this unique featural alphabet.

Esperanto-English Dictionary: Esperanta-Angla Vortaro
Compiled by Paul Denisowski, edited by Michael Everson
2012. ISBN 978-1-78201-006-7 hardcover, ISBN 978-1-78201-007-4 paperback.

Esperanto, the most widely-spoken constructed international auxiliary language, was the creation of Ludwik Lejzer Zamenhof, who first published it in 1887. Today Esperanto is estimated to have between 100,000 and 2,000,000 speakers worldwide. The most complete Esperanto dictionary is the Plena Ilustrita Vortaro, which is available both online and in printed format; but since the PIV is entirely in Esperanto, the need for a modern Esperanto-to-English dictionary remains keen for many Esperantists. Paul Denisowski’s Esperanto-English Dictionary can help fill a part of that need, on the basis of its sheer size alone, with more than 52,000 headwords. This extensive dictionary was compiled both from existing glossaries and from glossaries prepared by Denisowski himself, and it contains many words not usually found in smaller dictionaries, including an abundance of scientific terms, especially from the fields of medicine and mathe­matics. It is hoped that the publication of this diction­ary will assist a new generation of Esperanto learners in their enjoyment of this unique language.

Trans la Spegulo kaj tion Alico trovis tie
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Esperanto by Donald Broadribb
2012. ISBN 978-1-78201-001-2

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland estas somera rakonto, unue publikigita de Lewis Carroll (plum­nomo de Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) en julio 1865. Multaj el la personoj kaj aventuroj en tiu libro baziĝas sur ludkartaro, ekzemple la malbonhumora Reĝino de Keroj. Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, alimane, estas vintra rakonto, unue publikigita de Carroll en decembro 1871, en kiu la plejmulto de la personaro kaj aventuroj baziĝas sur ŝakludo. (Du personoj el la unua historio, la Marta Leporo kaj la Ĉapelisto, denove aperas en la dua sub aspekto de mesaĝistoj de la Blanka Reĝo, Haigha kaj Hatta.) En Through the Looking-Glass Carroll ankaŭ pli celas al plenaĝaj legantoj ol en sia antaŭa libro, uzante pli da vortludado kaj logikaj paradoksoj. Ĉe la fino de tiu ĉi libro oni ankaŭ trovos la “subpremitan” epizodon “La Vespo en Peruko”. Carroll originale intencis ke ĉi tio estu parto de Ĉapitro VIII de Through the Looking-Glass, sed li forigis ĝin nelonge antaŭ publikigado pro la instigo de John Tenniel, ilustristo de la unuaj eldonoj de ambaŭ verkoj. La specifaj cirkonstancoj pri ĉi tiu situacio estas pli detale priskribitaj en la Enkonduko al la epizodo, trovebla sur paĝoj 143–144.

Gramat Volapüka
By Arie de Jong
2012. ISBN 978-1-904808-94-7

Volapük is a constructed language, devised in 1879 by Johann Martin Schleyer, a Roman Catholic priest who was inspired in a dream to create an international language. Schleyer adapted the vocabulary of Volapük mostly from English, supplemented by German, French. and Latin. The grammar of Volapük is regular and relatively simple-surprisingly easier, in fact, than it looks at first. Volapük was the first proposed International Auxiliary Language to enjoy widespread popularity: it is estimated that in 1889, there were some 283 clubs, 25 periodicals in or about Volapük, and 316 textbooks in 25 languages, and that some­where between two hundred thousand and a million people had taken up study of the language. Esperanto, being similar to many European Romance languages, first appeared in 1887, and ultimately proved more popular. Today, the number of people studying Volapük is much lower than once it was, though Internet contacts have enabled Volapük enthusiasts to connect and communicate, and that new community has inspired the re-publication of this book. This Volapük grammar was written entirely in Volapük and was produced after the language reform which took place between 1921 and 1931. It has been out of print for many years, and it is hoped that its re-publication will assist a new generation of Volapük learners in their enjoyment of this unique language.

Wörterbuch der Weltsprache für Deutschsprechende: Vödabuk Volapüka pro Deutänapükans
By Arie de Jong
2012. ISBN 978-1-904808-89-3.

Arie de Jong’s magnificent German-Volapük Volapük-German dictionary has been out of print for decades. It is of course well known that the popularity of the Volapük language today is nothing like what it was in 1889, but the flame of interest in Volapük has never yet been extinguished. Unfortunately, the lack of availability of a comprehensive dictionary has made it extremely difficult for people interested in Volapük to make progress learning the language; most dictionaries available as reprints, for instance, are in Johann Martin Schleyer’s Volapük Rigik (‘Original Volapük’). But modern learners need a diction­ary which reflects the reforms made in Arie de Jong’s Volapük Nulik (‘New Volapük’, a term which I prefer to Volapük Perevidöl ‘Revised Volapük’ or Volapük Pevotastidöl ‘Reformed Volapük’). The re-publication of Wörterbuch der Weltsprache: Vödabuk Vola­püka is a mile­stone in the history of constructed languages, and will, perhaps, help to keep interest in Volapük alive well into the 21st century. Volapük is a rich and flexible language, endowed with an extensive vocabu­lary. It may have no future as an International Auxiliary Lan­guage, but it nevertheless has both intellectual and aesthetic value, whether for the Esperantist interested in the history of the IAL movement, or simply for the enthusiast who comes to enjoy Volapük for its own sake.

La Aventuroj de Alico en Mirlando
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Esperanto by Donald Broadribb
2012. ISBN 978-1-904808-86-2

La traduko de Donald Broadribb, Alico en Mirlando, estis unue eldonita en 1996 de Bookleaf Publishing (Bakers Hill, Okcidenta Aŭstralio). Ĉi tion sekvis dua korektita eldono publikigita en 1999 de la rusa eldonejo Sezonoj, kiu poste produktis trian eldonon en 2004. Alia eldono estis publikigita en 2000, post la apero de la dua Sezonoj-eldono sed antaŭ tiu de la tria. Ĉi tiu versio estis memeldonita interrete de Broadribb mem en PDF-formato sub la plena titolo La Aventuroj de Alico en Mirlando, kun multe da korektoj kaj plibonigoj al la teksto, inkluzive de pli klara sistemo de interpunkcio por parolata dialogo. Sezonoj ŝajne ne sciis pri ĉi tiu PDF-teksto kiam ili produktis sian eldonon de 2004, ĉar en ĉi lasta mankas la ŝanĝoj faritaj en la interreta versio. Tial, kvankam oni povus ĝuste nomi la PDFon de Broadribb la tria eldono laŭ ĝia dato de publikigo, estas plej oportune nomi ĝin la “kvara eldono”, pro tio ke Sezonoj jam uzis la nomon “tria eldono” por sia teksto de 2004. La libro kiun vi nun tenas enmane estas la kvina eldono, sen ambiguo. Ĝi baziĝas sur la PDF-teksto de 2000 kaj korektas kelkajn preserarojn kaj negravajn malkonformaĵojn kiuj restis (aŭ nove aperis) en tiu teksto; krome, vortoj nun estas kursivigitaj multloke por konformi al uzo de kursivo por montri vortemfazon en la angla originalo.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: An edition printed in the Nyctographic Square Alphabet devised by Lewis Carroll
By Lewis Carroll, Illustrated by John Tenniel, Foreword by Alan Tannenbaum
2011. ISBN 978-1-904808-78-7

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a.k.a Lewis Carroll, invented a special writing instrument he called “the Nyctograph” on 24 September 1891, in frustration at the process of “getting out of bed at 2 a.m. in a winter night, lighting a candle, and recording some happy thought which would probably be otherwise forgotten”. This edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is written entirely in the author's unique night-time alphabet.

Áloþk’s Adventures in Goatland
By Byron W. Sewell, Illustrated by Mahendra Singh
2011. ISBN 978-1-904808-76-3

Róaž Wiðz (1882–1937), the locally-admired though otherwise little-known Zumorgian translator, spent seventeen years of his miserable life (when he wasn’t tending to his beloved goats) translating Lewis Carroll’s classic “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” into Zumorigénflit and transposing it into Ŋúǧian culture. Sadly, Ŋúǧ was swallowed up by the Soviet Union in 1947. For those interested in such esoteric things, Áloþk üjy Gígið Soagénličy was first published by the Itadabükan Press in the capital city of Sprutničovyurt in 1919. The city, which was mistakenly thought to be a German forward supply area, was literally flattened and burned to the ground by Royal Air Force saturation bombing in 1943, and all that remains of it are a few remnants of the ancient Palace’s foundations and a gigantic reinforced concrete statue of Joseph Stalin, whose face has been shattered by what was probably machine gun target practice. The original story has here been updated to modern times, as if this strange, harsh, and dangerous land still existed in the modern world. It doesn’t, except in my imagination and that of Mahendra Singh, whose heart swells with the Song of the Goat. -- Byron W. Sewell

La Aventuroj de Alicio en Mirlando
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Esperanto by Elfric Leofwin Kearney
2009. ISBN 978-1-904808-20-6

La libro Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland estas trezoro de la angla porinfana literaturo kaj estis unue eldonita en 1865. La libro estas tradukita en multajn lingvojn. Ĉi tiu traduko en Esperanton de Elfric Leofwine Kearney estis unue eldonita en 1910. Ĉi tiu nova eldono enhavas la famajn ilustraĵojn de Sir John Tenniel, kiuj unue aperis en la originala angla eldono.

Lewis Carroll estas pseŭdonimo: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson estis la vera nomo de la aŭtoro, kaj li estis lekciisto pri Matematiko en Christ Church, Oxford. Dodgson komencis la rakonton je la 4a de Julio en la jaro 1862, dum remboata vojaĝo sur la rivero Tamizo en Oxford kune kun la Reverend Robinson Duckworth, Alice Liddell (dek jaraĝa filino de la Dean de Christ Church) kaj ŝiaj du fratinoj, Lorina (dek tri jaraĝa) kaj Edith (ok jaraĝa). Estas ankaŭ klara laŭ la poemo ĉe la komenco de la libro, ke la knabinoj petis rakonton de Dodgson, kaj kontraŭvole li komencis diri al ili la unuan version de la rakonto. Multaj duonkaŝitaj referencoj pri la kvinopo troviĝas en la libro, fine eldonita en 1865.
