Constructed Languages
« on: February 13, 2010, 10:52:43 AM »
Constructed Language: A language entirely made from scratch with a specific purpose (entertainment, secracy and more) and did not naturally develop on its own

with the definition out of the way onto topic :P

I am just curious if there is anyone on here whom have any interest in such either just for the sake of learning, knowing or acctually enjoy doing it on their own ^_^

Klingon.

It's a wonderful language for cursing. You can really get some passion behind it, and no one can take offense unless you translate for them :)

for starters I know the intention behind it is making it as alien as possible and go against all linguistical rules human languages have XP

it contain sounds that is hard for most humans to pronounce, it got a grammatical structure that for most of humanity unnatural and alot of other things

Actually, most of the gutturals weren't that hard for me - of course, I'd taken a semester of Welsh at the time.  I didn't look too hard at the grammar, I'll admit, but there's such a variety of 'standard' sentence structures out there that I'd be surprised if Okrand came up with something completely original.

(I'm still amused at the fact that he started out making the language without the /k/ sound - and then someone said 'Um, Marc?  They're Klingons!')

XD that is rather humerous. But he still intentionally did go against what humans usually like (there are examples of everything all over the world but they are increadibly rare as they are frowned upon by most humans)

Al Bhed is more of a cryptogram than a con-lang.  Mind you, I'm probably going to spend lots of time trying to decipher it without the 'books' when I get around to playing that game, but that's because I like cryptograms too.

I used to speak Sindarin, but not Quenya. Although I doubt I could remember much now.

Making a constructed language sounds interesting. Why do you want to make one?

Marion Zimmer Bradley created two languages in her Darkover novels, getting creative with (mostly) Scots Gaelic and Spanish elements.

What is really fun is that Klingon is actually the most widely spoken created language there is. 

You can take college courses in it if you like.

I've heard that there are some schools offering Quenya as a language course.

Or did you mean that the classes are taught in Klingon?
