Esperanto speakers continued to establish organizations and publish periodicals tailored to specific regions and interests. In 1954, the United Nations granted official support to Esperanto as an international auxiliary language in the Montevideo Resolution. Several writers have contributed to the growing body of Esperanto literature, including William Auld, who received the first nomination for the Nobel Prize in Literature for a literary work in Esperanto in 1999, followed by two more in 2004 and 2006.

" Umberto Eco's Chair is the first appointment in any university explicitly designated as a Professorship of Semiotics...He presents in his new work a highly original theory of sign production, including a carefully wrought typology of signs and of modes of production. His book illuminates, as well, one of his chief concerns: where do the political, epistemological, and natural boundaries of semiotics lie?" "Semiotics (also called semiotic studies) ; is the study of meaning-making, the study of sign process (semiosis) and meaningful communication. It is not to be confused with the Saussurean tradition called semiology which is a subset of semiotics. This includes the study of signs and sign processes, indication, designation, likeness, analogy, allegory, metonymy, metaphor, symbolism, signification, and communication.".

His original title for the language was simply the international language (lingvo internacia) , but early speakers grew fond of the name Esperanto and began to use it as a name for the language in 1889, which quickly gained prominence and has been used as an official name ever since.".
