Ryota's Old Daybook: Language Arts & Basic English
  A Short Guide to Basic English

Basic English: International Second Language is one of Ogden's books put online by Mr. Bauer. It is in fact a number of different books made into one. The book has three "sections," or three great divisions: 1. "Basic English," 2. "The System in Detail," and 3. "Examples."

Division 1 "Basic English" is in some different parts: producer's note, part 1, part 2, and additions. Part 1, "A General Introduction," and additions are in regular unlimited English. Part 2, "A Short Guide to Basic English," however, is in Basic.

You may see the inside of the "Short Guide" from the list here:

  1. What Is Basic English?
  2. Basic as an International Language
  3. How the 850 Words Do Their Work
  4. Basic as an Instrument of Thought
  5. The Learning of Basic
  6. The Teaching of Basic
  7. Basic for Science
  8. Basic for Business
  9. Sixteen Years, 1927-1943
  10. The Future

Reading Ogden's writings in Basic itself is a good training. Have a good time!
