Learning Created Languages
For me, the most surprising part about Thursday’s class discussion was when I found out that some schools actually offer elvish language classes. Sure, I know that there are groups out there for learning Quenya, Klingon, Na’vi, etc. . . . but an elvish course? Why do you suppose that learning created languages is becoming more popular? Does being able to hear the language in a movie or TV show make it more appealing to learn than say, only being able to read it in a book?
In case you’re curious, here is a link to some Quenya materials on the University of Bergen’s website: http://www.uib.no/en/search?q=Quenya&fromarea=&sort=text&x=0&y=0
