The Klingon language, which began as a few lines of dialogue in the first Star Trek movie, has grown to be what the Guinness Book of World Records once dubbed the world’s “largest fictional language.” This session will look at how and why the language was created, how filmmaking influenced (and altered) its grammar and vocabulary, and how the language is faring in the “real world.”
