Description
Making Up Words: A Look at Elves, Spells and Nerds (25 minutes) Brenna Hanley - Invented languages have been around for a long time; since we had natural languages there has always been a stride to make them better. This lecture will explore the sub-cultures surrounding fictional worlds and the languages that have been developed within them. By comparing the languages subtly included in the Harry Potter series (Parseltongue, Gobbledegook, etc.) and the fully-developed communication of Klingon and Elvish, the lecture will describe the way fans distinguish themselves from other members of modern day society.
