    Not that I don't like the Esperanto names of the months of the year, but couldn't the problem where the months no longer apply to their numbers have been fixed? When those two months got added to the calendar, everything got mixed up. Couldn't this problem have been fixed like: septembro for july (7), oktobro for august (8), novembro for september (9), and decembro for october (10)?

    Here they've prefered the similarity with (almost) every language in which Esperanto is based rather than the logical meaning.

    that would probably make it more difficult to learn rather than easier

    so nice that the months are basically in English. Thank you, doctor Zamenhof!

    They're also basically German, French, Italian, Russian, and so on and on.
