Klingon Part 1



Fans of the Star Trek series or the comedy series Big Bang theory have probably already heard about this language: Klingon.

The artificial language was invented and designed specifically for use in the Star Trek series and has its origin in 1979. The film „Star Trek: The Motion Picture“ only included a few words of the language, without any translation and grammar, along with a few sounds from Scottish Gaelic. What’s more, Klingon letters bore a resemblance to Celtic / Gaelic letters.

The actual development of the language began only in 1984, after the production company Paramount commissioned the linguist Marc Okrand with inventing a structure and a lexicon for the language.
