to the twelfth century when German nun Hildegard von Bingen, created a language called Lingua Ignota. Since her time, hundreds more have been brought to life as either a means to communicate, for artistic creation, to give life to fiction, or for philosophical or religious reasons.

Although many of the constructed languages have disappeared, others have endured time and are almost, if not as, complex as many of our natural languages.

Esperanto
Invented by L. L. Zamenhof in the 1880s, Esperanto is perhaps the best-known invented language. It may not have achieved its aim world peace and unifying the world under one language, but at its height it had as many as two million speakers. In 1954 Esperanto was recognized by UNESCO and today it is estimated that about 50,000 speak the language. It is a featured language in Facebook, Skype and Google Translate, and Wikipedia has 150,000 entries in Esperanto. Though many consider it a failed language, Esperanto has more speakers than six thousand of the languages spoken around the world today.

Klingon
When it comes to fiction, no other language is as popular as Klingon. Created by American linguist Marc Okrand, it is the language spoken by the Klingons in Star Trek. The Klingon language has a complete grammar and vocabulary, an institute in which people can learn the language, a dictionary that has sold over 300,000 copies and even its own translation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

Elvish
Philologist and writer, J. R. R. Tolkien invented Elvish, a complete language for the Elves tribes that first appears in his novel The Hobbit. His creation was a complex language based on

Welsh and Finnish, which was made

Dothraki
When Geroge R. R. Martin wrote his epic fantasy novels, A Song of Ice and Fire, he invented a few words and phrases to give life to the Dothraki people. But it was David J. Peterson, a U.C. Berkeley-trained linguist who designed the entire Dothraki language – which includes a 300 page grammar and dictionary – for the HBO show based on Martin’s books, Game of Thrones. The popularity of the show has resulted in Dothraki being heard by more people each week than Yiddish, Navajo, Inuit, Basque, and Welsh combined.

Na’vi
Paul Frommer, a professor at the USC Marshall School of Business with a doctorate in linguists created the Na’vi language for James Cameron’s film Avatar. This language, complete with nouns, adjectives and verbs, is quite complex and is considered a fully learnable language.

    I’m not sure that “many consider it (Esperanto) a
    failed language”. Esperanto has caught on. Indeed, the language is a
    great, often overlooked success story. It offers some remarkable practical
    benefits. Personally, I’ve made friends around the world through Esperanto that
    I would never have been able to communicate with otherwise. And then there’s
    the Pasporta Servo, which provides free lodging and local information to
    Esperanto-speaking travellers in over 90 countries. Over recent years I have
    had guided tours of Berlin, Douala and Milan in this planned language. I have
    discussed philosophy with a Slovene poet, humour on television with a Bulgarian
    TV producer. I’ve discussed what life was like in East Berlin before the wall
    came down, how to cook perfect spaghetti, the advantages and disadvantages of
    monarchy, and so on. I recommend it, not just as an ideal but as a very
    practical way to overcome language barriers.
