Created language in film

Analyze films where a language is created. Examples:
– Nothing from Earth
– Plukanian
– Klingon
– Dothraki – Mostly because Jason Momoa’s acting is still incredible and real despite spouting a made-up language.

  • I don't know If this would count, but another famous created language is Elfish from Lord of the Rings. Also consider the Star Wars, which is full of made up languages. – Aaron Hatch 7 years ago
  • This sounds like a lot of fun. It be interesting to know who came up with the language. Was it a linguist? Or did the creators just use gibberish. – Cagney 7 years ago
  • Sounds awesome. It might be worth looking at the Navi language from Avatar, specifically at how James Cameron built it from the ground up. – Thomas Munday 7 years ago
  • The person who made up the Dothraki language is actually a linguist, so he used a particular method of language making that focuses on the evolution of language. – Travis Kane 7 years ago
  • Even though the topic is Film, this article needs to at least hat-tip Tolkien, who created Middle Earth and LOTR basically so he'd have a world where the languages he'd created were spoken. – Monique 7 years ago
  • valyrian! – Arlinka Larissa 7 years ago
