A new dictionary of the German language was to have been produced in 1996 to reflect a major reform in spelling.
Simplify spelling but also simplify the grammar. Prepositions are not needs in the ages of limited information and leisure. People can now grasp the meanings from the key words alone as in telegraphic language. So instead of saying: "Discard surplus letrs in English spelling. These ar a major sorce of dificulty for lernrs and writers", one could say "Discard surplus letrs English spelling. Major sorce dificulty lernrs and writers".
Changes to spelling undermine the psychological integrity of citizens as it is associated with the language in which the person has been brought up and educated.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
