So there are a couple of well developed fictional languages out there, I think the two most famous ones would be Klingon from Star Trek and the Elvish langue from Lord of the Rings. I'm personally quite a big Star Trek fan and a keen linguist so I tried my hand at Klingon but I found it rather difficult to learn. Marc Orkrand the man that created the language specifically said that he wanted to create a unique language so he took the most difficult rules from all kinds of languages and mashed them together. The language is definitely speakable, I know a lady that likes to translate poems into Klingon, but for me it's more of a hobby or novelty rather than anything serious.
Did anyone else here every try their hand at fictional languages? If so, how did it go?
This may sound like a joke post, but it really isn't. I am not a Star Trek fan, but my fiancé and his mother are huge Trekkers. I was wondering if (even though it was developed for a television show) Klingon is actually considered a language. It has a syntax, vocabulary, and is associated with a specific culture (because Star Trek fans take their fandom seriously).
