Simlish is a fictional language featured in EA Games’ Sim series of games. It debuted in SimCopter, and has been especially prominent in The Sims games. The Sims development team created the unique Simlish language by experimenting with fractured Ukrainian, French, Latin, Finnish, English and Tagalog.
There is a website which teaches spoken and written Simlish, which is a combination of the Wingdings font and Zodiac symbols, but have no grounding in real grammar. All other games made by Sims genre creator Will Wright employ Simlish as a language.
Newspeak is a fictional language in George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. In the novel by Orwell, it is described as being “the only language in the world whose vocabulary gets smaller every year”. Orwell included an essay about it in the form of an appendix in which the basic principles of the language are explained. Newspeak root words served as both nouns and verbs, which allowed further reduction in the total number of words. Newspeak is closely related to English. The Newspeak term for the English language is Oldspeak . Oldspeak is intended to have been completely eclipsed by Newspeak before 2050.
Perhaps it is the easiest fictional language to learn, geeks have made a Wiktionary (NS Dictionary) for it and Amazon provides multiple books for those who are eager to learn.
The Klingon language is the constructed language spoken by the fictional Klingons in the Star Trek universe. Deliberately designed by Marc Okrand to be “alien”, it has a number of typologically uncommon features. The language’s basic sound, along with a few words, was first devised by actor James Doohan (“Scotty”) for Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Its vocabulary, heavily centered on Star Trek-Klingon concepts such as spacecraft or warfare, can sometimes make it cumbersome for everyday use. Klingon was subsequently developed by Okrand into a full-fledged language.
Over years, it has got so well developed that there is a Klingon Language Institute (KLI) in Pennsylvania, USA , that holds a yearly seminar to provide a platform for new people to learn the language, and existing aficionados to discuss it, making its fans (no offense) the dorkiest nerds around.
Esperanto is noteworthy for being one of the most successful constructed languages in history. It is the most widely spoken constructed auxiliary language. Although it was created by one man Dr. Ludovic Lazarus Zamenhof in 1880s, the world now accepts it as an actual language. The word esperanto means “one who hopes” in the language itself. Today, it is estimated that there are between one hundred thousand and two million fluent Esperanto speakers, and between 200-2000 native speakers.
Esperanto is also the language of instruction in one university, the Akademio Internacia de la Sciencoj in San Marino. There is evidence that learning Esperanto may provide a good foundation for learning languages in general. Its vocabulary is mostly derived from the Romance and, to a lesser extent, the Germanic languages. Experanto a language so effortless to learn it has caught on with many people and can be found on Google searchable websites through an Esperanto portal.
1. Elvish and the Languages of Arda
And who can forget Elvish – the inspiration for this post. J. R. R. Tolkien created many languages, which eventuated in the creation of a mythology, complete with races, to speak the tongues he had constructed and used in his legendarium, including The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion. His interest was primarily philological, and he said his stories grew out of his languages. The languages were the first thing Tolkien created for his mythos, starting with what he originally called “Qenya”, the first primitive form of Elvish. This was later called Quenya (High-elven) and is one of the two most complete of Tolkien’s languages (the other being Sindarin , or Grey-elven). The phonology, vocabulary and grammar of Quenya and Sindarin are inspired by Finnish and Welsh, respectively. In addition to these two, he also created several other (partially derived) languages but Tolkien’s elvish is definitely a full-fledged language.
I truly acknowledge his this broad invention which he made from scratch and so do many people, it actually is a really beautiful sounding “language.” Therefore, a number of books are available at Amazon to learn the grammar and syntax of this subject and English to Elvish Dictionary is also available for those who are serious about it.
