Basic English, also known as Simple English, is a controlled language created by British linguist Charles Kay Ogden, essentially as a radically simplified subset of English, as an international auxiliary language, and as an aid for teaching English as a second language. It was presented in Ogden's book Basic English: A General Introduction with Rules and Grammar (1930). Capitalised, BASIC is sometimes taken as an acronym that stands for British American Scientific International Commercial. Ogden's idea of the simplified English, gained its greatest publicity just after the Allied victory in the Second World War as a means for world peace!
