Ulster University Belfast Campus
23rd March: 10.00am – 12.00pm

In this hands-on workshop, researchers from Ulster University will explore the universal properties of human language to create an alien language that can still be spoken by human actors.

Linguists invent languages for science fiction and fantasy films and novels and use what we know about human languages to make their new constructed language, or ‘conlang’, as human or as ‘un-human‘ as possible depending on whether the fictional speakers are humans in a different era (eg. Dothraki in Game of Thrones) or aliens from a different planet (eg. Klingon in Star Trek).
