Constructed Languages

Interview with the creator of the Na'vi language

Fictional languages are by far the largest group of artistic languages. Fictional languages are intended to be the languages of a fictional world, and are often designd with the intent of giving more depth and an appearance of plausibility to the fictional worlds with which they are associated, and to have their characters communicate in a fashion which is both alien and dislocated.

Learn Na'vi

Na’vi is a constructed language spoken by the fictional Na’vi people on Pandora in James Cameron’s 2009 film, Avatar. The language was created by Dr. Paul Frommer, professor emeritus of Clinical Management Communications at USC. LearnNavi.org exists to share this beautiful language with all who want to learn, as well as to promote the continued development of Na’vi.

Learn Klingon

The Klingon language is something truly unique. While there have been other artificial languages, and other languages crafted for fictional beings, Klingon is one of the rare times when a trained linguist has been called upon to create a language for aliens. Add to this more than a quarter-century of the Star Trek phenomenon, a mythos that has permeated popular culture and spread around the globe. These factors begin to explain the popularity of the warrior's tongue.

Deutsch mit Tolkiens Tengwar

Die Tengwar (Einzahl: Tengwa) sind die wunderschönen kalligraphischen Schriftzeichen, die JRR Tolkien für die Elben seiner fiktiven literatischen Welt erfunden hat. Dank ihrem logischen Aufbau und ihrem reichhaltigen Zeichenschatz eignen sie sich zur Darstellung von vielerlei Sprachen. Tolkien selbst verwendete sie etwa für Quenya, Sindarin, Englisch und sogar die Schwarze Sprache von Mordor.
