Artificial Language

Entertainment / Literature / Artificial Language: Not to be confused with what linguists call grammatically synthetic (inflected) languages, artificial languages are deliberately 'made up' by a small number of individuals for some specific purpose rather than developing naturally over a period of centuries. Examples of artificial languages designed for international use include Esperanto, Volap????k, and Neo-Latin. Examples of artificial languages designed for fiction include Tolkien's Elvish, Avatar's Na-vi, and the Klingon language used by Star Trek enthusiasts. Contrast with synthetic languages.
