Considers invented languages, including Elvish and Klingon, as well as lesser-known ones that tackle ethical, social, or cognitive concerns. Students learn tools from contemporary linguistics to analyze language structures and understand how they relate to creator intentions.

Class Notes

Although this course will be conducted asynchronously, students will have to attend one of several available synchronous meetings (dates and times to be determined with student input at the beginning of the course to maximize attendance). An additional written assignment will be made available for those who cannot attend any of the synchronous meetings. Information about the course can be found on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmP2qFVhuf0??
