Mini-class: Conlanging through the Ages
Pop-culture phenomena like J.R.R. Tolkien’s Elvish, Star Trek’s Klingon, and Game of Thrones’s Dothraki offer only a glimpse of the imagination demonstrated by the centuries-old community of conlangers, or creators of artificial languages. In this mini-class, we’ll survey the diversity of these systems of communication, with an eye to the whys and hows of their design, and how well they’ve been able to satisfy their intended purposes.
The full description of the mini-class can be found through SAIL.
