Fictional and Artificial Languages

Let's make a list of them - if they are a bit more uncommon please explain their origin (a book, inventor etc.).

Fictional Languages

  • Dothraki - "Game of Thrones"
  • Elvish - "Lord of the Rings"
  • Gallifreyan - "Doctor Who"
  • Hylian - "The Legend of Zelda"
  • Klingon - "Star Trek"
  • Na'vi - "Avatar"
  • ... and others!

Artificial Languages

October 9, 2013



I just applied to help create an Esperanto to English course. I would definitely like to see a Lojban course. Perhaps I could convince some of the Lojbanists on Facebook and Reddit to help out :)


I applied for the Eo-En course too with my limited knowledge of the language... Hope to get it going to the point of exceeding lernu.net, which works but only just. I've had trouble learning Esperanto online so a Duo course would be great.


Quenya, and maybe later Sindarin.


Westron from Tolkien's Middle Earth, and the Ancient Language from Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Cycle book series.


It'll be awesome to learn the language from Inherintance Cycle, I have the books and at the end of every one of them they have a little translation from the words that appear in each book. So it will be easy to make a vocabulary database for the Ancient Language and the other languages that appear in this saga.


Unfortunately, I don't think a Westron course is possible. Tolkien didn't really develop it.


I love the Inheritance Cycle XD It would be funny to learn the Ancient Language. lol


And while on the topic of Lord of the Rings, Dwarvish might be cool.

Edit: And I'd be willing to help with pretty much any language from Middle Earth.


Hylian! Or is it Hyrulian? Anyways the language the Hylians use in the Legend of Zelda would be great to learn! Even if it's only script..


I want to learn some High Valyrian from Game of Thrones.



apparently there is another artificial language called ido http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ido_(language)
