From Tolkien to… Furby’s?
Ahem, yes, well, across all forms of entertainment, there are examples of made-up languages. In some cases, like the ones in The Sims (Simlish), or even Furby (Furbish) it’s all for a bit of fun. A fictional language can help make these beings more lovable, more relatable. In other cases, a fictional language can be a good way to make people dislike a character, if they refuse to speak a common language, even if they know it.
We here at GeekOut South-West like to use words. We like to write words down and share words with you. Sometimes other geeks like to share words that don’t even exist – Not until they’ve put them down. There are plenty of made up languages out there which are awesome to listen to, or are downright ridiculous. This week, we’re going to check out our Top 10 Fictional Languages.
